SCROLL TO SEE THE FINAL REVEAL
Welp, I was not able to complete my One Room Challenge within the allotted time. Lighting and fabric for the window have yet to arrive. The light is supposed to arrive on Dec 2nd. The fabric has no date. I still on the hunt for a stool that I would love for the space. Lastly, and more importantly, redoing the banister was a BUST. Remember I said my house was old and janky without a straight or level surface anywhere? Well that includes the flooring. Because the flooring is not stable, surface mounting the post was not possible. No matter what we tried the banister had a terrible wobble.
So now we are in the midst of repairing the sub floor before we can lay down the new laminate flooring and post. I also modified the design of the banister to include 2 surface mounted post, which will give us 2 surface mount post. Unfortunately, you’ll have to check back on this same blog post the week of December 13th for the final reveal.

Finally, I was able to complete my One Room Challenge. I must say, I am super happy with how everything turned out. I also learned that I am not a diy’er. The one important lesson I learned from being a software developer is that it takes a team to build a robust application. As I journey on the road to becoming an Interior Designer, it’s becoming clear that I need a team that will flawlessly execute my visions.
There are just a few smaller items I would like to tackle, that is adding a handle to the door that leads to a small storage room under the stairs and to remove the carpet on the stairs, and paint the hallway leading upstairs.
