I was heading out to the store early Monday morning to stock up on supplies. It had been a busy holiday weekend with Easter and multiple birthday celebrations. I’m not even going to lie to you guys, I was so tired. I was on the phone with my mom when I heard myself say, “There’s a chance we’re not going to make it. I don’t know how we’re going to pull all of this off. It feels like we’re off schedule and running out of time.” She sweetly replied, “Of course, we’re going to make it! We ALWAYS make it! I’m not even worried and you shouldn’t be either.” It’s worth noting here, she was on her way out of town and hearing her change to the “mom voice” immediately gave me the giggles. You guys, seriously, I don’t know if we’re going to make it or not but I’ll tell you this…we’re giving it our all. Here’s a look at the progress we’ve made for Week 3 of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home…
Thursday found us finishing up the board and batten installation. No playing, I thought it was going to take the same amount of time as it took for the home office but I’m finding out double the space means double the time for everything.
We spent a good portion of Friday, at Lowes. Thankfully, we pushed this while also drinking a chai tea latte with almond milk.
We also finished trimming out the windows.
On Saturday, we caulked and filled nail holes then we had to sand..and sand some more…and then some more…and finally we were able to get out the shop vac to clean up all that dust.
Sunday, we celebrated Easter with a big silly string fight and lots of fun food! It was great to take a break and laugh it out.
Monday found me painting all of the board, batten and trim. I didn’t know if I needed an Epsom salt bath, a shot of whiskey or if Calgon should just take me away but oh my gosh…you guys…I was so sore!
But it was so worth it…
I put the finishing details on the dresser on Tuesday…
and promptly changed my mind about the hardware on the nightstands…what do you think…
Since I can’t decide I still have one more piece of furniture left to paint.
Wednesday, we finally started pulling up the carpet….let me just say here we’re a week behind on where I thought we would be on the floor. I thought I would be showing you the stenciled floor today…I know…#loftygoals
We’ve been getting a lot of packages…here’s a look at how the chairs were delivered. I know I should go ahead and open them up and check them out but I can’t bring myself to do it until I get my nerves under control ha ha.
My goal is to finish painting the armoire and to at least start painting the floors this week. They are going to be a beast so I know they’re going to take a while…maybe all weekend…I’ll be making cookies…lots and lots of cookies…keep you posted.
