It’s week four of the One Room Challenge, and I am happy to say that PROGRESS.HAS.BEEN.MADE! We are halfway through!
I spent the long weekend buying the 1/4 inch plywood for my vertical shiplap installation. If you follow me on Instagram, you see that I took a few hours to cut each strip into 3 inch pieces and sand each piece so that it’s smooth. This weekend was a great time to do it because the weather was mild.
I purchased two of the 1/4 inch sanded plywood 4×8 boards and had the guys at Home Depot cut them in half. They don’t cut boards less than 12 inches, so I couldn’t have my 3 inch strips cut there.
If you want to see how I did it, head to my IG and check out my ORC Spring 2020 Highlight.
When I left off last week, I was almost done installing the wallpaper.
This week I focused on installing the vertical shiplap. It was pretty easy, just tedious. Those 3 inch strips don’t take up much space and therefore take time to fill up the whole wall. But I got it MOSTLY done.
As I mentioned, I got the boards cut in half at Home Depot. The boards were not really straight cut in half so some boards are a little shorter than others. No big deal because I plan to add a ledge across the top to give a more finished look.
I plan to remove the toilet to finish the remaining vertical shiplap installation. We’ve decided replace the toilet as well since we are upgrading the space. I believe the toilet is original to the house, so this space is definitely due for a new one.
I will put together a post on how to install vertical shiplap soon and will provide all of the sources of on my reveal post. I’ve gotten several questions about the wallpaper!
I finished painting the vanity Hale Navy as well, and just ordered a faucet. I am hoping to install the countertop and faucet this coming weekend, along with filling in all of the nail holes in the shiplap and priming.
