ORC Week 4 – It’s Here!

It’s Week 4 of the One Room Challenge and I’m feeling significantly better about my room than I was last week. The new countertop for the vanity was delivered on Tuesday! Originally it wasn’t scheduled to arrive until October 31st at the earliest, but then last week delivery was moved up to October 27th. And then on Monday I checked the tracking number and it said it would be delivered on Tuesday! I can't wait to open it up and see how it looks! Hopefully I measured correctly...

My goal this week was to cross off some of the smaller projects in anticipation for the larger vanity, mirror, and countertop projects. I’m happy to report that I was able to cross a few of those off this week. I cleaned the paint mistakes off of the mirror and I installed the drawer front on the new drawer! Yes, after three and a half years I officially have a drawer in that spot!

I was hoping to find all of my accessories this weekend, but I only ended up with new towels. They are from the Threshold line at Target and they match the blue in the butterflies and birds perfectly. I also like that the waviness of the towels adds a little texture to the room.

I only have two more weeks to finish the room, so I definitely need to pick up the pace this week. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to finish the following: remove the old countertop, paint the vanity, install replacement drawer front, fix the original drawer and add new drawer front, add remaining hardware/new hinges, install new countertop, and continue the search for artwork and accessories. That would just leave the mirror, caulking the shower, and accessories/styling for the final week. I think it’s doable…famous last words?
