One Room Challenge – Week 4

It’s week 4 of the One Room Challenge, and, yea, it’s not getting done!  Debby Downer over here I know, but y’all – why do projects take FOREVER in your own home?  


The one main update of the week – electrical. Such a boring topic, but had to be done…and it’s not even all the way finished. I now have an even bigger mess than before the electrician came. There were a few outlets and the light switch for the room housed in the wall that came down. Therefore, it all has to be moved through the attic to another wall.

One Room Challenge – Kitchen Remodel

AHHH – it’s that time again. This time last year, I was participating in my first One Room Challenge, and starting today, this is my third room to makeover during this blogger challenge. The past two rooms have been friends/clients, but today, The Walther house is getting to participate. If you missed out the past two times, the One Room Challenge is an excuse to get a room remodeled in six weeks. I will post every Thursday with progress of the transformation. 

So, this marks the first week of the 2016 Fall One Room Challenge, and without further ado, our kitchen is the room I’m participating with.

When we moved in two years ago, I painted the cabinets and called it a day. I knew that I would eventually redo the entire space, but I really didn’t think it would be 2.5 years later. It’s sad to admit, but I’ve actually gotten used to the gross white formica and gray racing stripe backsplash. Let’s take a look at the Before’s!    


On the other side of this living room wall sit’s the kitchen…come on in.

We cheated and switched out the dishwasher before I took the “before” pics. For the last two years it’s been black just like all the other appliances.  Do you see the missing drawer under the sink – can you say ghetto?

Next week I’ll show you the plan and then it’s go time. A six week transformation means we will hopefully have a new kitchen by Thanksgiving.

Check back each Thursday to see progress. Mdub is more than thrilled this is about to happen (NOT).
