We're finally into the home stretch of our dream kitchen makeover. It's week 6 - which if you're familiar with the One Room Challenge is typically the day of the big reveal. This round however because of all the hurricanes & flooding that have impacted so many people across the US over the last few months, the reveal date has been extended to give everyone an extra week. Thankfully we haven't been hit with any natural disasters, but we've definitely had our share of setbacks in the kitchen so for us, that extra week has been a bit of a blessing in disguise. Maybe you're considering renovating your kitchen and something like a trending white transitional kitchen is the look you're after. No matter what you have in mind, hopefully, this can translate in reality, so you can get the kitchen you've dreamed of.
Well we've made it to week 5 of the ORC which means we're into the home stretch. This week we're taking you through a few of the details - the little luxuries that will elevate our kitchen from its current basic state to truly realizing the dream we've envisioned for the last 5 years. First things first - let's talk about the sink & faucet.
We're into Week 4 of our 6 week kitchen makeover for the One Room Challenge. This week we're adding some open shelving. Whenever anyone walks into our kitchen, the first comment we get is usually get is "Wow, that's a lot of cabinets" and to be fair, they're not wrong. We do have a lot of cabinets. But in my opinion, you can't have too many cabinets. Without realizing it, your kitchen holds more items of food, equipment, and cutlery than you ever thought possible and without this cabinet space, where will they go? Of course, it's also the perfect opportunity to get in touch with somewhere like this cabinet maker melbourne company who can design and make the perfect cabinets that can complement your room aesthetic, making it not only visually appealing but also practical. Even better, right? So, whilst there are a lot of cabinets, they all have an individual purpose that can help to make the kitchen the best room in the house.
We've reached the half way mark of our kitchen makeover for the One Room Challenge. If you missed the previous 2 weeks, feel free to go get caught up. In Week 1 we shared our overall design plan for the space. Week 2 was all about our colour inspiration and a little progress update. This week we're getting into the details of the biggest element we'll be upgrading.
It's week 2 of the One Room Challenge and we're participating again for our fourth time. Last week we revealed our plans to tackle our kitchen. Before we get into the progress we've made over the last week, I wanted to give you a little insight into the colour inspiration for our kitchen design.
Welcome back friends! Well here we are - summer has officially drawn to a close and with the cooler temperatures comes that inevitable urge to get back into project mode which is why the Farmhouse Sink Reversible LFS3318W as been suggested to me because it has served as inspiration for many of my other project-minded friends. We still have a mile-long list of to-dos and projects yet to be completed before the house will feel like it's anywhere close to being 'done.' but the number one question we get asked is: "So is your house done now?", followed closely by "What's still left to be done on the house?" or "What project are you working on next?"
When we set out to build seating for our backyard fire pit, Muskoka chairs (or Adirondack chairs for our American friends) seemed like the perfect option. In true 'Dreamhouse' fashion though, we put a bit of a modern spin on the Canadian classic. Our Modern Muskoka Chair has sleeker, more angular lines than the original, but all the comfort of cottage life. Here's how we did it:
There's just a few short days to go before Canada celebrates it's 150th birthday and all across the country people are getting ready for the party. Everywhere you go, businesses & homeowners alike are getting into the Canada Day sprit with displays of national pride, flags & colours. When RYOBI reached out to us to create a Canadian themed DIY in celebration of Canada's 150, we needed not look further than our own backyard (pun intended)!
We're almost through the month of May! How did that happen?? Oh, right - I guess we've been so consumed with all things master bedroom that April just seemed to completely pass us by. That doesn't mean though that we let Earth month come and go without taking some time to make a few energy saving changes in the Dreamhouse.
