Hello all! This is my very first One Room Challenge and I’m so glad I didn’t stress about getting sponsors this time, because WHOA! I am so far behind. I knew I wasn’t going to finish in time, but I really thought I’d be much further along than this.
My husband I wanted my husband out of the house and in the home office before summer, but there are 12 schools days left, so nope, haha.
UPDATE – SEE THE FULL REVEAL HERE
If you are new around here, the One Room Challenge (ORC) is a blogger challenge where we are to make over one room in the course of six weeks. A big huge thanks to Linda at Calling it Home for hosting. Stop by her blog to see the featured and guest bloggers in this rounds ORC.
Here’s what I got accomplished this week – The painting is done and I started on the floor. I decided to put down porcelain tile because of the wet feet and pool equipment that come in and out of here. It’s the home office but also the pool house, so lots of water. I also just love tile. It’s beautiful and easy to clean and I love the way it feels. I picked out tile that looks like hardwood and I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I naively thought I’d be done by today, but again…nope.
The subfloor is in pretty bad shape, so after watching a lot of videos, discussing with a friend who has laid tile and talking to our local hardware store guy, I decided that we needed some Hardibacker cement boards put down first. I’m going to write a full post when I’m done about it, but basically it’s taking a while. The floor will be much better prepared for tile, but since I’m working by my lonely here, it’s slow going. I am SORE, but it’s a good, pass out and sleep hard all night kind of sore.
So, that’s it for this week. Maybe I’ll have them in by next week, but it’s also the end of the school year, so I’m basically living at the school. We have super kids day, teacher appreciation (we love those guys), special olympics, summer birthday celebrations, end of year parties and a field trip thrown in. I love it all, but I have to keep telling myself to not worry about the office. It’s a balancing act, all the time yo! But this time of year is the craziest, even more so than Christmas for us. But I long for the lazy days of summer. Speaking of which, if you are wondering about the pool it looks like this. I’m starting to think it may never be done. See the before HERE.
Anyway, wish me luck on finishing the flooring this next week! Adios for now, thanks so much for stopping by and checking out our Home Office Makeover!
Pin for later!
