One Room Challenge Final Reveal

Paint brush down folks. 
Whew!! That was fast and furious and I am sooooo glad I attempted this space. 

Let's take a quick look at our before.

And you can check out the previous 5 weeks work:
week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, week 5

Sorry it's grainy! 

And the after!

There was so much painting to be done. Soooooo much!!! 

So glad it's behind us!!!! 

What is still left to do:

get oushak for the area to the left of the cooktop
build small prep table for the cooktop/prep area (stone is in another city and wont be delivered until next weekend)
pick out countertops (a project hopefully for this spring)
pick out smooth cooktop.
(i spend an extensive amount of time on consumer reports selecting things, like too long!)
paint the one lone drawer I forgot and the cabinet door that broke. Yes. seriously
finish the cushions for the bar area (just simply ran out of time)
rework the electrical over the bar area (electrician was super backed up so we are attempting this on sunday, check back!)

We would have never made it this far without the challenge so thank you again Linda for hosting!! Can't wait until next time!!

Orc: Week 5

Seven days. 
S E V E N. (Minutes in heaven. Just kidding) 

I feel like I am running a triathlon with this room. Swimming was easy, biking has been so so. But running this last leg errr week in. I am having to dig deep and see what we can pull off. 

Paint finally arrived for the hardware. 

I bucked my gut feeling and instead of the beloved brass I went with chrome. 

Chrome paint is hard to find... No? 

Well it is. I read a lot of reviews and tried rust oleum. Then bit the bullet and purchased Champions Sterling silver spray paint. 

Look at the difference y'all. 

It's eons above the competition. Worth the splurge. 
See bottom left? 

We purchased the fabric For the bar stool cushions!! Then we traced and cut the foam to place the inserts in!! 

Real life pics y'all!!! 

And most notable progress is the venthood surround. 

Getting so close and this is going to make such a huge impact!!!

Now that hardware, majority of fabric and the grit and grime of the cabinets is over time to start the cabinet doors. 

So close yet so far away! 

Time to run the last leg of this crazy fast Reno race!!!

Hop on over to Calling It Home and see how everyone else is doing! 

The hosting designers are KILLING it!! 

Happy Halloween Eve y'all!
