ORC: Dining Room Final Reveal (Kitchen Coming Soon!)

Like I anticipated, not everything on my list is finished yet. I guess that just shows me that I need more than 6 weeks to do a room, depending on what projects are involved (like painting cabinets which take f.o.r.e.v.e.r. for this homeschooling mom). BUT, I want to tell you all about my table spread… Continue reading ORC: Dining Room Final Reveal (Kitchen Coming Soon!)

Kitchen DECLUTTER and shop! {The ORC Week 2}

As much as I wanted to start with the more fun things like painting and decorating I knew I had to start from the inside-out. That meant taking everything out of the cupboards and purging, reorganizing, and rethinking the functionality of everything in my kitchen. I am in the kitchen like 90% of the time!… Continue reading Kitchen DECLUTTER and shop! {The ORC Week 2}

The One Room Challenge: Week 1 *The Before/Current State*

I did the ORC in my bedroom 2 years ago and really had a lot of fun. I barely knew anything about blogging then and I still feel like I have so much to learn but I want to jump in and finish the things I have going on in my small kitchen and dining… Continue reading The One Room Challenge: Week 1 *The Before/Current State*
