Welcome back to our One Room Challenge Week Four! I’ll give you a quick update on the furnishings and then show you the progress Mike has made on the wood wall during the last week. I was adjusting to my first week at a new job so I didn’t get as much done as I might normally, but I’m getting in a groove and trying to catch up. If you haven’t seen our vision boards, check them out here! [Read more…]

One Room Challenge Week Three is here! Last week I showed you my vision boards and since then I’ve been shopping for all of the farmhouse style family room decor. I’ve been to most of my favorite bargain shopping places, but I also have found things around the house that I can re-purpose for this room. This will help me stay in budget for the project.
Although husband was going to start the wood wall last week, I took too long to make up my mind about the style(this is not a new occurrence). So we’ve moved that project to this weekend. The wall treatment I finally chose is pretty unique and I’m really excited to show it to you! I think it will complete our farmhouse style family room perfectly.
It’s One Room Challenge Week Two! Last week I explained what the challenge is and which room we are redecorating. This week I want to share my vision boards with you. Our farmhouse style family room makeover is going to include pieces that are old, new, painted, handmade and redesigned. We are doing all of the projects ourselves and we’ll share them with you along the way.
Friends are often asking Mike which tools they need for projects. Sometimes they ask me too, but I just give them a blank confused stare, refer them back to the husband, and continue looking at pretty things. I do know that the right tools are important, I mean they must be since there are sooo many in my garage. I asked Mike to write a shopping list to help you be the best Fixer Upper you can be. He also made you an easy printable list of power and hand tools to bring with you to the store. There are many more power tools, but Mike says these are the best five to start with and relatively easy to operate. Here is his list of Five Beginner Power Tools for Every Fixer Upper.
