I can’t believe it’s Reveal week! Eight weeks flew by so quickly. This One Room challenge is definitely one that will not be forgotten. I was hoping to finish this project in time but I’ve not been able to.
Life has been so busy this past few weeks and to complete my powder room has been a struggle. I’m still working on it and hope to finish soon. I love for you to come back and check it out when it’s all done. I’ve been sharing more updates on Instagram.
Thank you for sticking around and following along the transformation in my powder room. I also want to thank Linda, the founder of the One Room Challenge for this event. It’s been great following along the twenty featured designers and guest participants’ spaces.
As I mentioned in week One, this is my second time participating. Although I was on the fence due to the pandemic, I’m glad I went for it and decided to transform our powder bathroom.
Let’s go down the memory lane where it all started.
The powder room was dark, felt cramp with textured walls.
I’m truly amazed with the transformation so far and I’m excited to come back and update this blog post with pictures of the finished powder room.
But I can’t leave you in suspense so here are updates to what I have completed so far in the powder room.

The decorative moulding and baseboards are installed and caulked. I’m so glad!…but friends, the real work was with the crown moulding. Oh boy, it was a challenge. I went with the coping method because I thought it would be easier. Well, it wasn’t.
The crown moulding is up and I’m happy to be done with it. It’s looks from below thank God for caulking and spackle. I’m sure you know what I mean.
This powder room has definitely challenged me to continue pushing myself and to have a supportive community cheering me on, is my motivation to keep going. So I want to take everyone one of you that have visited blog, left comment, likes, viewed my updated during this past eight weeks. It truly means a lot to me.
