One Room Challenge Week 6 | Breakfast Nook Reveal | Spring 2016


 
We did it! We made it through the 6 weeks, and sure there were a few hiccups here and there but overall I got more completed in these 2 spaces than I EVER would have done if I had not taken on this challenge. By far. Before I take you through the reveal I wanted to quickly take you WAY back, to what this space looked like when we moved in a few months back:


The biggest change to this room, which took place before our 6 week count-down, was to remove the railing between the adjoining room, get rid of the step down and level the entire space with new flooring.




There's no way we could have done those initial reno's in the 6 week time-line, but I thought you would enjoy seeing how far a room has come from it's original 1989 state! Ok, so with a few side-by-sides for dramatic effect, here are the before and after shots (drumroll please!!):




 

Something that was super important to us was getting the foundation right - everything builds off of here! So adding substantial baseboards and doorcasings with Metrie's French Curves Collection, plus some crown moldings, and the shaker style door by Masonite (brought to you by Metrie), and a lick of Chantilly Lace (Benjamin Moore) was just what this space needed to start with a clean palette.


 




Love that this space connects with the outdoor space on the patio so well, so I decided to take the blue & white theme right outside!


 
Source List: Door casings and baseboards from the French Curves Collection (Scene I) and crown moulding  c/o Metrie | Pantry door from Masonite - brought to you by Metrie | Rustic pedestal table and blue & white garden stools c/o O.co | Vanderbilt pillows by MotifPillows | Rattan chairs via Craigslist | Darlana lantern via Circa Lighting | Blue & white tableware via Bombay & Co | Placemats via IKEA
 
There were definitely a fair share of hiccups; we didn't quite get the artwork in time and had a couple of issues with framing, so I had to use one of my own pieces as the oversized piece for the reveal. The one DIY that we didn't quite get completed in time for the reveal was the placement of the Self-adhesive glass frost panels (c/o d-c-fix) that I am going to be showing you how to apply in a dedicated post (coming soon!).
 
You can see my full moodboard and step by step planning in weeks 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | and 5. Thank you so much for following my ORC spaces, huge hug for taking this journey with me :) Don't forget to hop over to Calling It Home blog to view 200+ guest participant rooms and the stellar spaces completed by the 20 featured designers!

Be sure to check back shortly for the final reveal on my nursery, I'm literally sitting by the front door waiting for the artwork to arrive so I can post my second space. I just couldn't fathom posting without it in the room so I'm hoping I'll be getting a knock on the door any moment!!

Hi-- I just found your blog from Emily Clark's site, and I'm so glad. Your designs are beautiful! I just added you to my daily blog roll. :) I have a question: I love your patio covering, the dark steel-looking columns and is that glass on top? Can you please tell me what that is, or point me to a previous post where you may have discussed it? Thanks so much! Great work!
