Only 2 weeks left before the end of this Fall One Room Challenge, 14 days before the reveal and still a lot to do! I never thought this project would be so time consuming and difficult. Being in another country makes everything more complicated to source the items, shipping, works… And as I said in the week 1, to stay on a budget my friends decided to do most of the works themselves but they also have a real job during the week. Which means they have to do all this during their weekends. So this 6 weeks challenge became a 6 weekends challenge! I even helped them with the works last weekend because there is still a lot of things on the to do list.
Anyway, I promised that I would share lovely things this week. But because this project is really time consuming I had no time to make a beautiful moodboard! So instead I decided to share some of the vintage finds that I will use in the rooms.
First, this gorgeous vintage brass clothes rack! I love it! This small room needed something to hang clothes but there was no space for a wardrobe. So this clothes rack is the perfect solution.
Then this amazing Hans Agne Jacobsen chandelier! This picture doesn’t make it justice as it’s truly beautiful. And it was an incredible bargain!
And finally these two lovely lounge chairs that I will reupholster with a peachy pink velvet fabric.
Now, let’s talk about the works progress. The mouldings are on!
For the kitchen floor we chose these wooden floor tiles.
And here are my hand in desperate need of a manicure…!
We also fitted the new sink tap in the bathroom and it was hard work because I really wanted a wall mounted tap.
And the old floor tiles are also gone in the bathroom! The new concrete floor is ready to be tiled. So now we cross our fingers hoping the pink terrazzo tiles will arrive in time…
Well, that’s it for this week and I’ll be back next Thursday to share the progress of this project. In the meantime, you can have a look at the other projects of the ORC and the ORC Guest Participants.
