WEEK # 7 – SPRING 2021
OFFICIAL SPONSOR OF THE ONE ROOM CHALLENGE.
Only one week to go and so much left to do.
The hardware by @schaubhardware did not disappoint, it looks amazing with the tropical paper covering the old island. #peelandstickwallpaper
We also made progress applying the chalk board paper to the doors as the backdrop for the dart board, and to keep scores on the other side. Once we install the backing and the dart board I will show a picture.
We changed the art above the island in its new location. The art is called MINDFUL GARDEN and it has the perfect colors. It fits the space like a glove seeing that this “garden” is indeed a mindful space for me. Love my plants, flowers, and herbs and it is a place I get a lot of joy out of. Now that is refreshed, and redone and have the components of an OUTDOOR ROOM, the more joy and relaxation it will bring.
Here is the new art above the tropical piece, & the old island with a refreshed wood top and wild wallpaper
Here is the island with handles. Isn’t she a beauty?

THE KITCHEN ISLAND: BEFORE
We are also working on the hardware for the other cabinet. Remember that cabinet was in the place where the old island was. We switched locations because the tropical and fun pattern of the island now made more of a focal point and it fits better on this wall. The metal cabinet fits better on the other wall based on scale. So switching the island to this new location also allowed for the art above it to be more centered and lowered.
Previously since the metal cabinet is tall we had to hang the art too high.

THIS IS WHERE WE STORE WINE GLASSES, ICE BUCKETS AND ALL THINGS BAR. ON THE DOUBLE DOOR SIDE WE ALSO STORE GARDEN STUFF, VASES, THE BIG GLASS BEVERAGE DISPENSER.
IKEA CABINET ENHANCED AND IMPROVED
Other things we have added to make this busy OUTDOOR PATIO ROOM more efficient.
The way the picture shows above is how we wanted to install the handles. Sadly, due to the thin metal of the cabinet doors and the screws the handles by @schaubhardware required, we had to install a wood piece. The wood piece doesn’t allow the handles to show as well as they show here. The handle is screwed on the top and not the bottom for purposes of this photo.
Read the next blog post for the final reveal so that you can see how the wood pieces look.
AN OUTDOOR PATIO FOR THE ONE ROOM CHALLENGE.
HOOKS FOR BEACH TOWELS.
I wanted a spot where all pool and beach things could go as in the past, these items where draped over THE chairs and it did not make the patio look nice at all.
BEACH TOWEL HOOKS.
I am rushing to get everything completed before next Thursday and there is quiet a bit to do.
