ORC Week 5: Stalling Out

Well, there’s only one week left… and I don’t think I’m gonna make it.

It’s a waiting game for the counter top to actually be installed.

ORC Week 4: Mishaps and Time Management

Something is always bound to go wrong in any project, isn’t it? Murphy’s Law: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Luckily, it was something easily fixable this time, so here we go into week four! Filled with mishaps, mistakes, and the little things as we stall and begin the waiting game.

One Room Challenge: Week 1

Welcome back to week 1 of the One Room Challenge (which I have now discovered is an actual thing, like a legit thing with a start date and everything–it is only by pure coincidence that I started on the right week). As discussed previously, I’m not doing a whole room but rather a project within my laundry room–adding cabinets. So here we go.

1 Room, 6 Weeks – Laundry

Now that the bathroom is finally done, I can move onto other projects, hopefully less stressful projects that don’t involve plumbing *fingers crossed emoji*. So I’ve been on Pinterest for like only a year and a half (yes, I know, I was slow to join up even though my friend had been sending me invites since Pinterest first started years ago and you could only join with an invite). Since I’ve been on there, I’ve seen lots of blog posts about the “6 Week, 1 Room Challenge.” NGL, I’ve been wanting to try one even though I don’t like time restraints.

Backyard Struggles: A Tale of Two Gates

One thing that I love about my house is the front of it. It is landscaped, complete with rock garden and a lawn installed with automatic sprinklers, and a giant tree that makes it look like I don’t live in a desert. What I don’t like about my house is the backyard that is filled with weeds and two giant pecan trees that drop pecans and branches everywhere.

$60 Mid-Century Mod Bench

So you may know that I’ve got a huge laundry room that is literally just four walls and the washer/dryer. There are no cabinets, no shelves, nothing. It’s a blank slate and I’ve been racking my brain what to do with it. I knew I needed a drop-off place instead of letting things congregate on the counter, so I took the first step and built a bench.

Bathroom Reno: Fixing Walls & Replacing Floors

This bathroom remodel/reno is definitely an on-going process, filled with lots of different steps. First, I removed all the wallpaper, a tedious task made only slightly better by my iPod. What was left was pretty ugly, tbh. I had two options: sand the walls really well so they could potentially be painted over directly, or skim coat.
