Week 6 has finally arrived!!
The past few weeks have been filled with triumphs, disasters, and everything in between.
My saving grace was tons of help from my sisters, my husband, and my two girls. I am so grateful for everyone's help.
A special thank you to Linda from Calling It Home for doing the One Room Challenge. It was definitely the motivation I needed to get these two rooms completed.
We bought our home almost five years ago. It was one big vanilla shell as a new build. Slowly we tackled some rooms, but with our busy schedules several are left undone.
The One Room Challenge pushed me to complete our rooms and tap into my creativity to design spaces that are fun and representative if my family. To save some bucks, my husband and I did everything ourselves and I shopped discount stores for the goods.
A special thank you to my sister Mariana for pushing me to do the one room challenge. She has been trying to get me to do this for years. My sisters and daughters pulled through to complete the decor and bring my idea to life.
I chose the powder room thinking let pick something small that I know I can tackle easily in 6 weeks. That was definitely a joke. In the middle of the design project we had a major leak that almost jeopardized my precious penny floors.
My husband repaired the leak which caused him to make a huge hole in the wall to access the pipe. This was after he painted the walls and installed 4100 pennies individually.
My heart sank and I thought for sure we were doomed and unable to make the deadline as it took 1 week and a half for the repair of the wall and floor. It was definitely worth the wait. The powder room looks wonderful.
I am a simple clean line modern contemporary person so the traditional vintage style of the powder room may take some by surprise. I had to have the primary colors of the room in black and white as the entire first level of my home is black and white with a pop of color. I chiae teal as my pop of color because it goes perfect with copper as it is it's opposite on the color wheel.
Here's the finished product. A true labor of love. I hope you enjoyed watching this transformation.
