One Room Challenge- week 3

Here we are at the half way point of my "one room challenge" which really isn't a room, it's just a bar area. What I first thought in my crazy head was a quick makeover and would be done way ahead of the six week challenge is sadly taking a lot longer than anticipated.

This is where we are right now.

My husband got the base of the cabinet done and it looks pretty good. My job from last week was to hunt for a countertop and get that ordered however sadly one of my grandmothers got ill last week and passed away yesterday. She was an amazing women, so strong and so kind. I will miss her incredibly and will think back to times spent in my childhood at her home with great happiness. Love you tons Grandma!

I hope you'll forgive me if our progress is a little slow this time around. I am hoping to get this finished on time, but if it doesn't... it certainly won't be the most terrible thing to happen. Let's keep it real.

Things we need to do to finish this project:
  • find/order/install countertop
  • install planking on top half of walls and ceiling
  • order/install light
  • paint
  • make shelf in cabinet
  • put finishing work/trim on cabinet
I certainly hope we can pull it all off in time. Crossing fingers and toes for sure.

If you are just checking in on my project here is week 1  and 2. Please go to Calling it Home and see the progress of the 20 bloggers/designers that Linda has chosen for this challenge here, and see the other linking parties here. 

Until next week...


  1. Bar areas are so fun, and that area you have is perfect! My project is moving slowly too. But that's the beauty of the deadline, is that it will force us to finish right?
