Oh, my goodness, Oh my goodness! We’re almost done! I mean, the challenge is almost done…. I feel like we still have a lot to do! Here’s to week 7 of the One Room Challenge! I think we may just pull it off! I’m really excited to have it done and be able to use it. Let’s do a little recap and then see what we accomplished this week!
Let’s take a look at what we’ve been trying to do for the past…almost 2 months! I’m so excited to finally see my vision come to life and be complete! I think it’s going to look pretty good…one can only hope. 😉 As of today, we are still waiting on the laundry carts to arrive. I’m hoping they arrive this weekend.
Andy built the upper cabinets out of MDF and used a biscuit jointer to put the pieces all together with wood glue. He added trim to the base and crown molding to the top. They’re painted Pigeon (color matched to SW) by Farrow and Ball. They will have 3 shelves inside. I will definitely need a step stool to access the cabinets and maybe even a ladder to get to the top shelf. These cabinets go all the way to the ceiling! The doors still need to be built, as well.
Let’s take a look at the washer and dryer area before cabinets.
The Cabinets are installed with crown molding above. They go all the way from the W/D cabinet to the ceiling. In this picture, I’ve already painted the cabinets prior to getting installed.
Andy used MDF to build the whole cabinet. To assemble the cabinet, he used a biscuit jointer and glue. Then, he attached the cabinets to the wall with screws into the studs. We will have 3 shelves inside, as well. The doors will be assembled this coming week.
Painting and Touch-ups
For the beadboard, I was trying to decide between 2 colors of white paint: Alabaster and Swiss Coffee. Then I found an almost full gallon of color matched paint to our trim color (it’s pretty much the same color as Magnolia’s shiplap color). So, we decided to save money and just use the trim color. Plus, I didn’t have to repaint all the existing trim…just do touch ups! Yay! 🎉I finally finished painted all the trim pieces in the tower cabinet, as well.
We need to do all the things! We will get the cabinet doors done and painted and the wallpaper installed. Hopefully the light arrives, and we can get that installed as well. I also need to paint the step stool and the hanging rod. The shelves have arrived, and they will go in this weekend! Then, it’s all the fun stuff: adding all the accessories! Cannot wait for that part!
Until next time Treasure Hunters! The BIG Reveal!
