Slow and steady wins the race…at least that’s what I’ve been told. SLOW is exactly how I feel. This One Room Challenge is trucking along, but I’m confident it will get all get done. (Six weeks is ambitious for a kitchen I’m doing by myself!)
To catch up on the previous weeks, you can find them here:
So here’s the update for the week:
- Tiling is still in progress
- Range is in place and scheduled to be installed TOMORROW!
- Situation with the opening to the kitchen is solved. (See last week’s post if you missed the dilemma.)
- Barstools are picked. (Be sure to see how I cut them to size, HERE!)
- The missing door arrived.
I got some great suggestions for the crooked wall between the living room and kitchen. Thank you, if you chimed in! Sometimes it takes a village.
I ultimately decided to “build out” the wall to make it level. I added some lath and used a piece of masonite. To get it level, I shimmed it.
I made it just wide enough for a piece of trim tile in the kitchen and I’ll have to add molding to the living room side. A little paint and caulk and you won’t even know!
The list of to-dos is so long that I won’t bore you with the details. Considering I have two whole other sections of the kitchen that I haven’t even started on, I’m sweating the 2-week finish line. 😅
I hope you aren’t getting bored of this view yet. My goal is that the other areas of the room will be a surprise of the reveal!
That’s all I have for you this week, but be sure to check out some of the other amazing rooms in the One Room Challenge…HERE.
