Hi friend! Thanks for checking back in on our One Room Challenge progress! WE ARE ALMOST DONE! This post concludes Week 7 and next week is the reveal!

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 or Instagram account is welcome to join the fun. It goes over 8 weeks and each week we share an Instagram or Blog post with an update on on our 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! You can check out all the other participants HERE.

PROJECT GOAL: Make this space a cozy place for our family to enjoy and hide all the storage 🙂

Week 7 Update:

Click the following weeks for past updates:

  • I used 1x4s to trim the doors, baseboards and top moulding. I sanded each board and finished with clear satin Varathane. 
  • Explore Hardware sent over new door knobs and I replaced all the old ones so they matched! I absolutely love the modern look of the BALI door knob! You can check them out HERE.
