ORC: It's the Final Countdown!

Thursday, November 5, 2015

We are on the HOME STRETCH for the multipurpose room!  I can hardly believe how fast the six weeks have flown by.  So here we are on week five, the week before the final reveal.  This week I am just working on the finishing touches for this space, mostly touching up paint and caulking between gaps.  If you want to catch up on how the room has been transformed up until now, you can check out the progress from the previous weeks here:

Week 1, (literally a blank slate) Week 2, Week 3, Week 4

This week has been the fun part of the challenge for me because it included adding all the fun design elements.  With the exception of hiring our friend Andy to help us with the things that were outside our comfort zone, my son and I have worked endlessly on completing this space.

We used every square inch of this room, so the corner got a cozy little bench and table. My friend Anna is a crazy talented, DIY builder of anything and everything.  She built this for me.  

Here it is in her workshop.  We repurposed our old stair treads for the seats, and covered some plywood for the back cushion.  

I got to shop for some fun pillow patterns.  

And I made some "oops" along the way. Once the pallet wall went up, I thought it would be fantastic to add some indirect lighting to the space.  So, I called up my friend handy - Andy and he agreed to add a light to the already completely sheet rocked room.  Have I mentioned how much I love this dude?  Our son was willing to fish the wire out, so we shoved him into the small space between the soffit and the closet, and Andy fed him the wire...

Three hours later, I had my light!  I will reveal the whole fixture next week, but it was just the right touch the room needed.

The media center and tv were hung, and we completed our stair case! 
Don't look too close, you may spot where I need to touch up =)
