Installing modern shiplap
Well we're just past the half way point of our One Room Challenge! We were a little late with our Week 3 update so we decided to combine weeks 3 & 4. Despite the delay though, we're super excited to finally get our modern shiplap boards up on the walls! Better late than never right?? If you follow us on Instagram, you might already know that we spent last week enjoying a little sun and sand. As a result, our progress on the powder room hasn't been quite as much as Kes & I had hoped. I regret nothing. But now that we're
Bedroom Setbacks & Progress
It's the final week of this Spring One Room Challenge which means it's officially crunch time in this 6 week room makeover! With just one week to go, and still a whole lot of big items to check off our to-do list, we've got no time to waste, so let's get right to it.
The Dream Kitchen: Open shelving – because we really need more storage
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.
Quick & Eco-friendly bathroom update
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.
Main bedroom makeover – Pulling it all together (ORC Week 5)
Well we're into the home stretch of the One Room Challenge and though most of the previous weeks were filled with lots of planning & purchasing this week we finally started pulling this master bedroom makeover together. We're in full execution mode and ready to bring the dream bedroom to life!
Our Modern Industrial Family Room
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.
The final push: Family room makeover
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.
Family room plans
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!
Getting down & dirty with tiles
We're into week 3 of 6 in our One Room Challenge which means we're right at the half way mark. Aaaaannd as I write that I'm starting to feel the pressure. Last week was a bit anti-climactic with all of the researching, material sourcing & shopping but this week we really got to work.
Lessons in Drywall
Things around here have been a little quiet of late. But that's because Kes and I have put our DIY hats on & have been spending most of what used to be our blogging hours working at the Dreamhouse.
