Hiya all! Welcome back to our home office makeover as part of the one room challenge.
Just as I suspected, the ORC is already kicking my butt. In case you missed it last week, I decided to participate as a “guest blogger” for the ORC, hosted by Linda over on Calling it Home. Thanks to everyone who stopped by last week, it was so fun finding new bloggers and getting all wrapped up in the craziness.
UPDATE – SEE THE FULL HOME OFFICE REVEAL HERE
We have had our number of hangups this week and I haven’t gotten as far as I wanted (per usual). But, I’m excited about our home office makeover and excited to finally be started! So, this week we were able to get a couple of things done. We started by cleaning everything out.
I’ve also email around town to some resale stores looking for someone who wants to pick up the couch and desk.
I also took off the cabinets on the side and have prepped them for paint. I painted the cabinets in my last house, but they were nice, real wood. These are not, haha. We will see how that goes.
The outside, believe it or not, is coming along. The concrete should be poured soon and the pool will start to look like, well…a pool. Crazy, I know! The hubs should have a nice view out of the office when it’s all done (fingers crossed)!
So, I decided to write down what I’m going to be doing for the full home office makeover and here is my list.
- Remove popcorn ceiling (yes, just decided to add this fun little chore, because I didn’t have enough to do).
- Paint cabinets.
- Resurface countertops
- Paint Walls and ceiling
- Install tile floor (yep, we decided to do this ourselves as well)
- Build a table for sitting area.
- Make wall art
- Build shelves
- Build desk
- Install curtains and rods.
- Install new lighting/upgrade fan
Oh me ghee…that’s a lot now that I’m looking at it. I can not stress enough that I probably won’t finish on time. I can’t rush through stuff like so many friends I know can – I’m just not that good yet. I take forever! Anyway, hopefully next week I’ll have some much better pics! We will see :).
Thanks so much for joining me! It was fun to “meet” so many new bloggers last week. Can’t wait to see everybody’s rooms!
