One Room Challenge- Week 4

I can’t believe we are already heading into week 5 of the ORC! It’s definitely crunch time. I’m happy to say we plastered the range hood! It was hard work climbing up and down to get all the nooks and crannies, but she makes me so happy every time I walk in my kitchen. Here’s a couple progress photos:


I’m also happy to say we were able to get the reclaimed wood for the island this week, AND get it planed, cut, and built! I’m still trying to figure out the finish, but here it is right now:


Picking a paint color is so hard for me, but I finally settled on Farrow and Ball’s Schoolhouse White (left swatch). They recently released this color and I love it! I almost went with Shaded White or Shadow White, but decided to stick with the lighter of the three.


This week we are hoping to knock out getting the cabinets sanded/painted, and getting the open shelves and reclaimed beam on the hood up. Wish us luck! And remember to check out the other contestants here.
