This was the week I was supposed share the reveal of our pink board and batten for the One Room Challenge. Yeah, that didn’t happen! When Wednesday passed I was really upset at myself, but also told myself that I’d just post about it the next day… then Thursday, Friday and Saturday passed. Here I am, Sunday afternoon just now writing this post. I honestly don’t have much to share. What I have to share is that I didn’t reach my goal, and that’s ok! What I did do is get the room primed!
See, I’m not just doing this one room, we are also knee deep in a bathroom renovation as well as painting and redoing 3 additional bedrooms. Then we start our kitchen renovation as soon as the bathroom is wrapped up (so I’m currently ordering and planning for all that) and I realized, I can’t set those kind of expectations on myself and realistically think I will hit every.single.goal. It’s just not healthy. Did I mention we are also homeschooling…. some days I feel like I’m drowning. So I’m a week late… I will finish this room and that’s what’s important. Some goals I did hit this week. We all ate breakfast, lunch and dinner (though not the healthiest options). Everyone showered and had clean clothes to wear with a bed to sleep in. Let’s just celebrate in those victories, haha!!
So that’s all I have to share for this week, but can we just take a second and look at this original hardware that I’ve cleaned up. I still need to polish it, but man she turned out pretty! <3 (excuse the iphone picture… I didn’t even get out my actual camera for this post ; )
Hopefully I will have some floors done soon… wish me luck!
