ORC week 3. kitchen in progress

Week 3 of One Room Challenge and I made a small progress with my kitchen. First of all as you can see above I  upgraded our old IKEA pendant which will go above the bar table. It’s painted in Farrow & Ball Hague Blue and I used 3 different gold spray paints for the inside.

I managed to get rid of the red wall and while at it, I painted the ceiling as well. The wall paint colour I decided on in the end is Valspar ‘s Silver Thistle Down. As my mum calls it “the dirty white but on the warmer side”. In other news, I ordered the fabric for the new window pelmets and made quickly new sheer blinds. I also ordered the wallpaper which will go on one wall of the kitchen. I decided to create a pinboard wall behind our hallway door. I ordered cork wall tiles which can be painted in acrylic.  I’m planning to install them tomorrow and do the paint job over the weekend.


I have long way to go and tons to do but I’m hoping to make a bigger, more impactful kitchen in progress next week as all the stuff I ordered will be coming (hopefully) as scheduled. Fingers crossed! Please check out other ORC guest participants and the designers. If you need some ideas and inspiration I recommend you to go and have a look. There are some incredible projects going on which are SO creative and inspiring! xkb
