Welcome to week 5 of the One Room Challenge.

Lots has happened this week so let's cut right to the chase. The rooftop servery is coming along nicely. You can catch up on the previous 4 weeks below.
week1 / week 2 / week 3 / week 4

The millwork got built & has been primed for painting.

The handrails & posts have been painted black & look 1,000,000 x's better.

The door has been painted in the most glorious shade of green.

The under counter skirt is in production & getting a nice wide gross grain ribbon detail.

I created my art project for the large wall in the stairwell - here's a little corner.

I'm impressed with the amount of progress this week & I don't want to sound like a Debbie Downer but there is still so much to complete before photos on Wednesday. 

Complete millwork & paint.

Apply the final coat of paint on the walls.

Install stair carpet.

Drive 3 1/2 hours (each way) to the cottage to pick up the fridge.

Carry said fridge up 6 flights of stairs.

Install tile baseboards & backsplash.

Install the wall sconces.

Install the quartz counter & hang undercounted skirt.

Install black glass floating shelf.

Install door & millwork hardware.

Hang art.

Install dishwasher & sink faucet.

Style up & photograph.

I hope to God that's it!!!
