It's the final week of this Spring One Room Challenge which means it's officially crunch time in this 6 week room makeover! With just one week to go, and still a whole lot of big items to check off our to-do list, we've got no time to waste, so let's get right to it.
We've made it to week 3 of the One Room Challenge which means we've officially hit the half way mark. If you missed the previous two weeks, you can go get caught up on the before of the space and the design inspiration for our "Modern Marvel" Boy's Bedroom. This week we're focusing on the geometric feature wall treatment we'll be creating behind Kash's bed.
We're finally into the home stretch of our dream kitchen makeover. It's week 6 - which if you're familiar with the One Room Challenge is typically the day of the big reveal. This round however because of all the hurricanes & flooding that have impacted so many people across the US over the last few months, the reveal date has been extended to give everyone an extra week. Thankfully we haven't been hit with any natural disasters, but we've definitely had our share of setbacks in the kitchen so for us, that extra week has been a bit of a blessing in disguise.
We're into Week 4 of our 6 week kitchen makeover for the One Room Challenge. This week we're adding some open shelving. Whenever anyone walks into our kitchen, the first comment we get is usually get is "Wow, that's a lot of cabinets" and to be fair, they're not wrong. We do have a lot of cabinets.
When we set out to build seating for our backyard fire pit, Muskoka chairs (or Adirondack chairs for our American friends) seemed like the perfect option. In true 'Dreamhouse' fashion though, we put a bit of a modern spin on the Canadian classic. Our Modern Muskoka Chair has sleeker, more angular lines than the original, but all the comfort of cottage life. Here's how we did it:
There's just a few short days to go before Canada celebrates it's 150th birthday and all across the country people are getting ready for the party. Everywhere you go, businesses & homeowners alike are getting into the Canada Day sprit with displays of national pride, flags & colours. When RYOBI reached out to us to create a Canadian themed DIY in celebration of Canada's 150, we needed not look further than our own backyard (pun intended)!
We're almost through the month of May! How did that happen?? Oh, right - I guess we've been so consumed with all things master bedroom that April just seemed to completely pass us by. That doesn't mean though that we let Earth month come and go without taking some time to make a few energy saving changes in the Dreamhouse.
Well we're into the home stretch of the One Room Challenge and though most of the previous weeks were filled with lots of planning & purchasing this week we finally started pulling this master bedroom makeover together. We're in full execution mode and ready to bring the dream bedroom to life!
It's Week 4 of the One Room Challenge and if you're new here you should probably go back to Week 1 and get yourself up to speed. But in case you're lazy like me let me give you the Coles' Notes version. We're 4 weeks into a 6 week challenge where we're creating our Dream Bedroom. There. That wasn't hard at all! But with just 2 weeks to go, there's no time to waste so let's get down to business.
It's week 3 of our One Room Challenge and true to form I'm beginning to feel the stress. Every time we decide to tackle a room makeover, Kes and I come up with these huge ideas & plans for multiple DIYs. Week 3 is usually about the time when I take a look back at the long list of to-dos that we have yet to complete and start to seriously doubt our ability to pull it all together in time. This time around is no exception.
