One Room Challenge “The Nebula Project Reveal”

After exactly 6 weeks and 3 days it’s time for the reveal! But before showing you the before and after pictures, I really would like to thank the amazing Linda for organising the ORC. This event is such a great opportunity to share room makeover projects and discover bloggers. I already took part in this crazy challenge twice, but this time was definitely the most difficult, exhausting and time consuming project. If you want to know more the Nebula Project, you can catch up here:
Week 1 “The Nebula Project”
Week 2 “From Scratch”
Week 3 “The Panic Stage”
Week 4 “Vintage Finds”
Week 5 “Adaptability”

For me the biggest challenge here was that this project was abroad, in Brussels to be precise and I am in London. And I top of that, there were 2 rooms to renovate: a tiny bathroom and a kitchen that needed to be transform in a small studio. It was a crazy project with a lot of train travels, video calls and sleepless nights trying our best to complete this makeover in time. We had to do a lot of things in the rush or last minute, even the final pictures were taken at night! And guess what? After all this hard work, we couldn’t finish both rooms. But I am still happy with the result because at least the main room is done.

The Kitchen Studio

So let’s start with the main room which was an old (ugly) kitchen that needed to welcome a small studio. Here are the before pictures just in case you don’t remember what it looked like.

And here it is now… bye bye kitchen and hello little studio!

In this room I had to fit a studio with a kitchen “that doesn’t look like a kitchen”. So I created this credenza style kitchen using Ikea cabinet.

And I DIYed these wooden and brass legs.

These are the vintage faux fur chairs I showed you here and that I reupholstered using velvet fabric..

And here are more pictures of the rooms and details.

The Bathroom

Here are the before pictures:

A LOT of things went wrong with this room like wrong tiles delivery, or a custom concrete sink that arrives broken 2 days before being installed and MANY other things! But at the end, things slowly started taking shape, unfortunately too late. We still have work left here but I am so in love with the pink terrazzo, I really look forward to complete this bathroom. Here is what it looks like now.

I wasn’t too sure about the wrong square tiles that had been delivered and as you can see we ended up using them on the walls. And I have to say I am pretty happy with the result. Now “To be continued” for this pink bathroom story and I will obviously share the pictures as soon as it’s done.

In the meantime, you can see more before and after makeovers with the ORC and ORC Guest Participants projects.
