ARE YOU READY FOR THIS? I spring I started renovating the main living area (upstairs) of our home and I couldn’t be more excited to continue that renovation into more of our main living area. We may even get to removing a wall! FYI, ORC = One Room Challenge, you’ll see this acronym a lot over the next 8 weeks!

First, let’s talk about what the One Room Challenge is. Have you heard of it? It’s a biannual event that is held every spring and fall. Anyone with a blog, Instagram or TikTok account is welcome to join the fun. It goes over 8 weeks and each week you share an update on your room. It’s a fun way to connect with other like minded people and be able to encourage each other through all the ups and downs of renovating! I highly encourage you to check out all the other participants HERE.

PROJECT GOAL: Make this space bright, neutral and functional so we have storage and organization for jackets, shoes board games and kid stuff. We have a lot of morning light that comes through the windows and we want that light to transfer through the house.
The ultimate goal is to remove the wall with the tv on it and replace it with posts and a beam. We know this requires expertise and we’re looking looking into what we need to do to do is properly.
Here’s the plan for our Back Entrance One Room Challenge
Planning isn’t my strong suit, but I’m working on it!
- Week 1: Plan & clear out room
- Week 2: Remove trim, remove drywall on main house wall and demo old pantry
- Week 3: Mud and sand walls to prep for painting
- Week 4: Remove tile floor
- Week 5: Wash walls, prime and start painting
- Week 6: Finish painting and put up new window trim
- Week 7: New lighting and storage unit
- Week 8: Touch ups, decor and reveal!!
Whatcha think? Seems pretty simple, right? Yeah… no renovation ever is, especially with an older home, but whatever I get into, I’ll share it here in a weekly recap and over on Instagram.
Here’s my inspiration! Still sourcing a dog crate that isn’t an eye store, rug and deciding on lighting. Soooo not sure how much is really planened!
So far I haven’t purchased anything, however I am working with two brands on a couple of aspects of this home renovation and I’m very grateful for these opportunities.
Any questions! Let me know in the comments!
