We have made it to week 4 of the One Room Challenge (ORC). I can’t decide if I am relieved that there are only two more weeks left or stressing that there are only two more weeks left. If you are new to the ORC it is a challenge twice a year put on by Linda from Calling it Home where designers and guest bloggers have six weeks to transform a room.

My progress this week is just that progress and not so much production. I made progress, but didn’t actually complete anything. Did I mention that during these 6 weeks I had three out of town trips planned, and out of town guests for almost 5 days and now I am getting sucked into the debate…
I am really playing the sympathy card now…can you tell? Ok so enough with the pity party and onto the progress.
My progress involved three things this week. I started creating my Workout Schedule Calendar that was made out of a paint board from Lowe’s and chalkboard paint. Here is what it looks like so far. Don’t let it deceive you. It may look simple and easy but getting those lines straight and even took a long time. This is my first ever real chalkboard project and I have been having so much fun working on it. I still need to add the days of the weeks and a title. I created it so I can make a two week workout schedule. There is something about having a plan that helps me to accomplish things. If I wake up and don’t know what workout I am going to do I have a greater chance of not doing any workout at all. This will help organize my workouts and with having a plan it is more probable that I will actually stick to my workouts.
The other progress I made is a wooden arrow I planned to put on the gallery wall. My new love is arrows and I was super excited to make this. At first I was going to buy the wood for it, but then I found leftover pallet wood from making my Recipe Stand. The left over pallet wood was just the perfect amount of wood I needed. I love the arrow how it is, but I am thinking that I will paint it.
The last progress I made was starting the gallery wall. Here is the inspiration I started with from Love Grows Wild.This is the empty wall with the soon to be gallery wall. In order to get an idea of placement I cut out shapes and started taping them on the wall. I will be adding to this over the next couple of weeks.
Thanks for stopping by and hanging out with me as I get rid of this beer gut. Take some time to check out the progress of the other participant’s rooms at Calling it Home.
