Can you believe it's week FIVE already?? Friends....we're in the Endgame now. See what I did there?? LOL, not to worry - this is a spoiler free zone. ;) But seriously....we're down to the wire with our powder room makeover and with the addition of a little paint & lighting, I don't think I could be more excited with how things are shaping up!

We've made it to week 3 of the One Room Challenge which means we've officially hit the half way mark. If you missed the previous two weeks, you can go get caught up on the before of the space and the design inspiration for our "Modern Marvel" Boy's Bedroom. This week we're focusing on the geometric feature wall treatment we'll be creating behind Kash's bed.

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.

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.

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)!
