ORC-Week 4

It’s been an off week but we did get a few things done for the challenge! Starting with the delivery of the some chairs. But… they did not work so I sold them on Facebook Marketplace. They were beautiful but just too bulky for our space. I was able to make my money back and have already ordered another set to try!

With my father in law’s help, I replaced our front porch light. Our previous light worked but just wasn’t our style. I decided to go with a light I found at Home Depot. It’s so much better than our previous light! Next I replaced our front door knob. I was pretty nervous to do it because our previous door knob was broken and I did not want to be without a lock. After a few tries I got it! If you try to install a door knob or basically anything else, read the instructions carefully and lay out all the pieces. It will make it simpler when you get stuck.

And for the biggest change, I painted the front door pink! The color is Joyful Poppy from Kelly Moore. I’m obsessed with it. Painting the door was pretty easy, I started with removing the door knob and peephole. Next, I wiped down the door. It was recently painted so I didn’t need to clean much. And then I let Emmy do the first few swipes. She loved painting with me! While she napped, I finished up the painting and reinstalled the hardware.

Doesn’t it make you so happy?

And that’s all for this week! Make sure you check out my last three posts to get caught up on my One Room Challenge space. And don’t forget to go to ORC website to check out all the featured designers and quest participants.

  • Dining Room Plans & Three Simple Meals to Make This Week
    It has been about two months with our completed kitchen makeover and we are still in love, but our dining room has been begging for some attention. So far, we have updated the lighting, got a custom bench, added a new (secondhand) table, and I just completed a little gallery wall. So, we have ordered […]
  • Our Kitchen Reveal – The Budget & Answering Your Questions!
    The question I am asked the most about this project is how much it cost, and I have no problem sharing! But before I do that, I do want to encourage you to remember we have waited to do this for almost six years. Also, we are all on our own budgets and plans. To […]
  • Our Kitchen Reveal – A Very Green Kitchen!
    This project is something we have dreamed about for almost six years, and we could not be happier with the results!

  • June Meal Plan
    Only a few days late, but our dinner meal plan is here! A few notes; we try to eat meatless several times a week, I noted the days we are out, and we are trying to not eat out this month unless we are out of town. I have linked the recipes I have and […]
  • Friday Five & What I Made in March
    I just got my check for March from my secondhand booth and thankfully my booth did much better than the last month! Unfortunately, I did not have any brand collaborations last month. But that’s okay! I shared that I am trying to slow down and focus on my routines and role as a stay-at-home mom […]
