One Room Challenge Spring 2016: Week Four

April 26, 2016

One Room Challenge

If you have not already read my Week One, Two, and Three posts, please click herehere, and here, so that you can get all caught up. As you know, I have chosen to makeover my kitchen. Week Four of the One Room Challenge is simply an update on how the process is going.

Due to our major setback during Week Three, we still have not had a lot of time, energy, or (to be honest) money to spend on the kitchen right now. However, I have made some minor changes that I can share.

Kitchen Makeover

We quickly realized after we had moved in, that we definitely needed a toaster. We got by for about a week before it really started to drive us crazy. Unfortunately, the only place it worked in the kitchen (due to outlet placement), is exactly where I had the gorgeous rose gold trays, which I had showed during Week Two. The trays have since been moved to our bedroom and I think the toaster that we found at Target looks great in our kitchen, so it all worked out!

Kitchen Makeover

While we were at Target, I discovered this stunning hammered large serving bowl with a gold finish. We had been looking for a bowl to keep our bread products in and this was perfect. We actually bought two; one we I will use for popcorn.

Kitchen Makeover

Before moving, my parents gifted us with the most stunning vintage gold bar cart. You can see a sneak peak of it in this post. Since Joaquín loves to throw anything and everything he can get his hands on, we really cannot use the bar cart just yet. So, we are using a rod iron wine rack that my grandfather made decades ago. It matches other rod iron pieces that he had created as well that we have scattered around the house. I love having sentimental pieces mixed in with new pieces.

Kitchen Makeover

Some of my favorite luxury home products are from Antica Farmacista. I love their brand new scent: Cucumber & Lotus Flower. I think reed diffusers are such unique and beautiful way to fragrance and decorate the home. Antica Farmacista utilizes antique inspired apothecary bottles, filled with one-of-a-kind fragrance, to permeate the air through the bottles’ open neck and white birch reeds that are inserted to further diffuse the scent.

    I love reed diffusers! I bet cucumber and Lotus flower smells amazing. Everything looks great! It’ll come together slowly but surely. I’m still laughing over the way you slipped in about your sore who in the last post. Hope you’re feeling 100% by now!!
