We made it to the finish line!!! I can't begin to tell you how excited (and relieved) I am to be able to say that. Today marks week 6 of the One Room Challenge and we're revealing one of the largest spaces in the house - our modern industrial family room. This is the first truly 'finished' space on the main floor of our home and it feels so amazing to finally be able to walk in and get that first real glimpse of our vision for the Dreamhouse.
It's week 5 of our 6 week family room makeover for the One Room Challenge and I'm officially freaking out! Reveal day is exactly 7 days away and there are still SO many things we have to cross off our to-do list to bring our vision for the family room to life.
It's week 4 and we're into the home stretch of our One Room Challenge. Week 3 turned out to be a bit of a bust for us so we'll be covering both weeks in today's recap. Our focus this week has been the family room lighting.
It's that time of year again!! And no, I'm not referring to the season where we "pumpkin spice all the things" (although here in Canada it is that too). I'm referring to the time of year where bloggers from all over get just the kick in the pants they need to roll up their sleeves, get creative & come together to be inspired. It's One Room Challenge time!
That is the question.... Ok so Kes and I need you to settle an argument. Well..I guess it's not so much an argument as it is a DIY dilemma. Anyone who regularly reads this blog will be aware of how much we love a bit of DIY! I've spent most of my free time this week looking at various stick welding brands with one eye on future projects. In the meantime, we have a real dilemma over this coffee table.
After our very long hiatus from all things DIY, it's not surprising that lately Kes and I have been feeling the itch to create. So now that this beautiful summer is creeping to a close and shorter days are bringing with them cooler temperatures, we've decided it's finally time for us to trade in our shorts for a few pairs of comfy paint stained track pants. The first space we're tackling is our main floor, so we decided to start with a little family room inspiration. If you are feeling inspired to change up your house, but are unsure how to get new furniture into you home, then you should check out something like this shiply furniture page to give you a better idea of what you could do.
Well hello there old friend...and by old friend I can only assume I'm talking to myself because after over a year of radio silence on the blog it's possible that I'm the only one still here. Okay, maybe my mom. Hi mom. :) It feels like forever since I've written anything or even checked in (nearly 13 months to be exact). A whole lot has happened in our lives since my last post. For starters - after 3 long years on this journey, we finally moved in to our dream house. It was such an easy process and I'm super glad we finally did it. The conveyancing solicitors we used were fantastic and the sale went through really quickly. The whole process was much less stressful than I imagined it to be which was also great! Now we just need to focus on paying the loans off (a friend is using https://www.sofi.com/home-loans/mortgage/ for theirs, so we may consider it in the future) and getting everything settled.
First of all I just wanted to say thank you so much for the overwhelmingly positive comments on last week's One Room Challenge reveal post as well as all the love on facebook, & instagram, etc. We really do appreciate it! We received so much feedback on our hex tile floors, we thought we'd share some details and a few tips to help any of you looking to do something similar.
