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.
We're very late with our update this week. It's week 5 of our One Room Challenge which means there's only ONE WEEK LEFT!! It's serious crunch time and after the setbacks last week we're having to make some adjustments to the plan.
I just had a feeling things were moving along a little too smoothly.... It's week 4 of our One Room Challenge where we're participating along with the 20 designers & over 150 bloggers in the linking event over at Calling it Home to transform a space in just 6 weeks. If you've been following along on our progress to complete our #DreamBedroom & #MasterBathRetreat, you'll know that thus far in Week 1, Week 2 & Week 3, things have been moving along at a good pace. But what challenge would be complete without a few setbacks right?? Well this seems to be our week for that across the board....
Happy Thursday! It's week 3 and we've reached the half way point of our One Room Challenge!! If you missed our previous updates, you can go back to read Week 1 & Week 2 where we shared the before of our entire master suite & the plans for our #MasterBathRetreat. The bedroom space still looks much as it did last week, with the exception of the windows that have now been trimmed. We've also cleaned up a bit & removed all of the drywall pieces left from the wall that needed to be opened for the en-suite plumbing, which should happen next week. If you are doing a complete overhaul too then you know how important it is to use plumbing services that are the best in your areas. If you are still in that stage of figuring it out, you may want to look into companies like Apollo Plumbing to assist you. Be smart and do your research, it'll save you a lot of hassle in the future.
We've made it to Week 2 of our One Room Challenge! There's nothing like a little time off work and a long weekend to give you the kick in the pants you need to get going on a reno project. Last week, Kes and I were fortunate enough to be able to take a few vacation days ahead of the Easter long weekend which made for a ton of progress on our space so far.
Ok. Let's try this thing again... If you're new here and joining us from Calling it Home - welcome! I'll get to the fun stuff in a minute. There's just one thing I need to get off my chest first... So I think it's pretty clear at this point that we VASTLY overestimated our ability to blog regularly while undergoing a major renovation.
We're back with week 5 and after our setback a couple of weeks ago we're finally on our way to getting this One Room Challenge back on track. That said, we've still got a LONG way to go to make our six week deadline.
Soooo we've hit a setback with the tiling for Operation Organized Entryway. If you follow us on Instagram, you might have already seen this. Remember our beautiful honed grey basalt tile that I love and was ranting & raving over in our last post?? Yea....well.... here's how it looked the next day once the tiles were set & we snapped off all of the leveling clips...
Well it's Week 2 of the One Room Challenge where we're transforming one room in our house over the next 6 weeks along with the 20 chosen design bloggers as well as the 96 other bloggers playing along in the linkup rounds over at Calling It Home. In Week 1, we started things off by revealing our plans for what we're calling #OperationOrganizedEntryway (if you missed it you can go get caught up here).
