ORC- Beadboard Powder Room Week 4

Week Four in the One Room Challenge (ORC) hosted by Linda of Calling it Home.

Updates from last week is my husband installed the floor to ceiling sheets of beadboard to our powder room, while my I painted one of my daughter's bedroom because you know we just can't get enough of projects right now.

The real reason for me painting my daughter's room wasn't for the pure joy of another project, it was because one of her walls was damaged during the install of the new ceiling beams in the family room. In case you aren't up to date with why we installed new ceiling beams... you can catch up HERE.
I could've just painted the one damaged wall but the rest of the walls were looking a little banged up so I decided to do the whole thing and do it myself to save us some costs to go to other areas of the home.

Back to the powder room... here is the current look.



I am thinking there will be a lot of painting primer in our near future, don't you think? I am excited to see it all painted bright white though. It'll add so much to this little powder room.

Bad news, I'm 100% sure I will not complete this challenge in time. When I decided to jump on this challenge, I knew there was a chance it might be close but now I have a better grasp of the house timeline.

Our new hardwoods in the kitchen should be installed soon, and perhaps the rest of the house floors will be sanded soon too but they won't be stained until the kitchen cabinets are in and that won't be until the end of May (crossing fingers). After the kitchen cabinets are installed then they will be sprayed and left to cure THEN the floors will be stained and finished, leaving the toilet and sink not to be installed until after the floors are done. Insert sad emoji.

I will continue to post our updates along the way though and hope you'll follow along with this project and the rest of the house projects after the ORC challenge is over.

In the meantime, you can see the Featured bloggers/designers week 4 progress HERE and the other link uppers like myself HERE.  See you next week!

ORC Week 3 - Powder room

Is it just me or do weeks go by pretty fast when you're on a deadline?

We are at week three of the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling it Home. For anyone new to the blog, I'm am working on my powder room and you can catch up here on week 1: the before shots and week 2: the plans.

No photos of progress to share with you this week. Last week I was teetering on whether to do a dark paint on the walls or go white. Although I saw many gorgeous dark bathrooms to give me inspiration, in the end I have decided to go white. There are no windows, skylights or any trace of natural light in this small powder room therefore I was a little afraid it would turn into a dark hole.

We did pick up the sheets of beadboard this past weekend and maybe we will get a chance to install it this coming weekend.

Here are some more inspiration photos to get me through this renovation.

I have made another mood board and switched things up a little.


I will be honest that since this is the third week and we should be half done, I'm not too confident that I will make the 6 week deadline. All of it waits on the hardwoods being installed and stained before the toilet and sink can be installed and when the hardwoods get installed & stained isn't really in my hands. It could be a tight race to the deadline for sure.

To see the 20 Featured Challengers 3rd week update go HERE and to follow along with the other linking up challengers like myself go HERE. Lots and lots of inspirational makeovers happening over there!
