One Room Challenge- Week 5

Here we are at week 5 of the ORC! We have one week left to work on our makeovers and I'm far from done. However, our laundry room re-do has made some good progress this week. Check out our board shiplap wall with hooks! I'm loving this look. I'm working on what to hang above the hooks, and those two vintage botanical prints will probably make the cut. The laundry room is right off the small hallway from the garage so I wanted to extend the "mudroom" by putting up hooks for all the kids' gear. 
We also put up our DIY cabinets this week and the folding table. Between the two cabinets we will be installing two open shelves. The sink needs it's skirt still which I'm still working on making. I'm also going to work on adding some texture to the folding table by possibly making it look like Carrera marble. Another thing to add to the list!
With one week left I have to be realistic. I wanted to paint the floors, but we'll see if I have enough time. Do you think it will look good with a black and white runner and call it a day? Or do you think it would look better painted, with a rug?

Things to (still) do for the laundry room makeover:

-hang art
-install two shelves
-install hardware
-poly coat cabinets
-finish and install wood bead chandelier
-sink skirt
-put in new rug
-probably more things I can't think of right now

Let's see how the progress of everyone else's rooms with the 20 main participants and the linking participants of the ORC. Can't wait for next week to see everyone's reveals.

    1. Thanks for the encouragement Lisa! I could wrap my whole house in that boarded ship lapped look. I bet you could too-it's so New England and cottage-y.

  6. Pretty fabric for the sink! I love how it all looks. Will be a great space! I say throw the new rug down and live with it like that for a bit-- if you still feel you need/want to paint the floors, go for it later.

    1. Thanks Aubrey. I will follow your advice and see how it looks with the new rug. But I might have to pull out the paint brush if I have time.

  9. Great ship lap wall. Color is sooo pretty. Love the skirting fabric choice too. I say throw down a vibrant runner and call it day - see how it feels for a while. You can always paint later.

  10. Love ship lap and one of my favourite laundry rooms was one that had a gorgeous fabric for the sink skirt - it really made the room as will this fabric. Good luck getting everything done!
