ONE. WEEK. LEFT.
This is it, you guys. Crunch time! I’m not nearly as stressed as I was last week, though if I update my to-do list, I might just freak out a little. So let’s see what’s on it.
Still to do:
- one more coat of black paint on door
- reinstall door handle
- finish painting bookcase
- paint and install backing on bookshelf
- style bookcase (eek! this is going to take me weeks!)
- paint 4 frames for gallery wall
- actually hang frames for gallery wall
- style shelves above desk
- hang blinds on window
- pot all succulents
- deep clean upholstered chair (thanks to Luther living on it for the last 2 weeks)
- spray paint hook for the hanging light fixture
- finish installing said light fixture
- organize pegboard
- hang cork boards & begin inspiration board
- organize and style desk
- paint stool
My apologies for the fuzzy iPhone photos… at this stage, I’m not ready for nice, sharp SLR pictures, but next week, my friends!
Also, most definitely, no chance, not happening this time is the closet makeover. There’s just too much that needs to happen in there and it’s basically a 6 week challenge on its own. Ok, fine, maybe a 3 week challenge, but nonetheless!
Completed this week: I put in a craftsman style window casing complete with a deep sill for my little plants to sit on! All by myself! And it wasn’t even that hard!!!
One big table has been made into two and they’re happily living on separate sides of the room (thank you, Alex!). This was a pretty major change of plans, as this was originally supposed to be an L-shaped desk if you remember the week 1 plans, but that just was not going to work. The table was too old and well-made for us to take apart and have one of the legs moved, so I decided to opt for two separate workspaces in here instead. One will be for my computer and regular desk things (left) and one will be for crafting/prepping prints for the shop/photographing projects (right).
I’ve also started planning the gallery wall and it’s been changed… oh… about 8 times by now.
And just for fun, here’s a view from another angle:
Oh and I painted the footstool! It was an off-white canvas, and it’s pretty old (back from Alex’s bachelor days) and pretty dingy… so I used mineral paint and it’s now white! Yay!
As you’ve seen, I also put a rug in the room, which I am loving! I’ve had this thing in a closet for over a year. Brutal. But I knew it was meant to go in here all along and I had an irrational fear that Ikea would stop selling it if I didn’t get it then. They still have it. Figures!
In all, I feel pretty darn good about my progress, and I’m not actually freaking out about that to-do list, but ask me again Monday and we’ll see!
