Welcome to week five of the Jeffery Court Renovation Challenge, and the word of the week is CHAOS!
If you would like to start from the beginning, you can catch up here.
Have I told you this challenge has a 5,000 prize??
I would really love your support, and you can vote DAILY!
Have you voted yet?
We returned home from our mini-vacation to Portland to have the reality of how far behind we were set in.
In a BIG way!
Let’s peek at all the projects that are in process.
Renovation chaos is real, folks!
The backsplash and countertops are the only 100% finished projects.
We are almost finished with the floors.
So I am calling that 99% done.
All but sealing the grout.
The tile makes my heart happy!
We’ve started the kitchen cabinets.
First, we taped off windows and counters and such with trusty Frog Tape (Thanks for sponsoring the challenge!).
We then cleaned (TSP is your best friend here) then we primed all the cabinets.
Next, we started painting the lower cabinet doors and boxes with the most beautiful blue- Mariner by Pratt and Lambert, who sponsored the paint for our kitchen renovation.
Pratt and Lambert’s Aquanamel line is a dream to work with.
At this point, we are in divide and conquer mode.
We also started painting our walls.
Told you, total renovation chaos.
I choose Bright White (WHO1) for the walls as the house is very dark, and I want to lighten it as much as possible.
The trim will be a cream color yet to be chosen.
We decided because time is of the essence here that we would make the job go quicker if we used a paint sprayer from Wagner, also a Renovation Challenge sponsor, and all I can say is THANK GOODNESS.
If you have not used a sprayer before, I love how it enables you to make quick work of a project.
This is the Wagner Flexio 3500, and it is ahhhhmazing.
Sorry for the dark photos; we are working some pretty late nights!
This is our catch-up list for this week.
Follow along on IG its where I post daily stories @alifeunfolding
NEXT WEEK IS THE REVEAL!!!!!
Stay tuned to see if we actually pull it off.
Until next week,
