One Room Challenge Link Up - Week 4

Welcome to Week 4 of the One Room Challenge, created by Linda from Calling it Home.  She's challenged talented designers and invited those of us in the blogosphere to create a room transformation in just 6 weeks.  

I am working with a client on a kitchen renovation.  The renovation is taking place within the original footprint of the kitchen and we are working with a moderate budget.

Click on these links to catch up if you've missed the last 3 weeks.

This week we focused on finding counterstools, finalizing paint colors for the cabinets and the walls, confirming hardware, lighting and refinishing the floors!

We ended up going with these super affordable counter stools from EZMOD.

And BTW, EZMOD has excellent customer service!  One of the bases arrived damaged and they sent a new one, lickety split!

The options for the stain on the hardwood floors were presented:

And just to recap, this is the kitchen before:

We're getting there!

Tune in next week!

One Room Challenge! Linking it up!

Hi all,

I'm so enthused to be able to share that I am joining the One Room Challenge (ORC) as a linking participant.
Linda from Calling it Home created the ORC as a motivational and inspirational six week challenge to get one room designed and finished.  She's invited 20 bloggers, and then spread the love by allowing those of us who would like to link up to participate as well.

So, what is my One Room Challenge?

It's a client's kitchen, that we are going to endeavor to modernize without changing it's footprint.

Here it is before:

What's our goal?

Here's our inspiration:

Traditional Kitchen by Minneapolis Architects & Designers Charlie & Co. Design, Ltd

We're planning on removing the overhead hanging cabinets, painting and refacing the existing cabinetry, replacing the formica with carrera marble slabs, adding a backsplash, new lighting, upgrading appliances, eliminating the vinyl flooring and replacing with hardwood....and creating overall pizazz!

All within a moderate budget!  

Stay tuned for next week!
