If you are just joining me for the first time, the One Room Challenge takes place twice a year over six weeks each time. During those six weeks featured bloggers and guest bloggers, like myself, transform a room of their choice.

We have undertaken a total transformation of our daughter’s kitchen. A tiny kitchen with big dreams!! You can catch up by clicking the weekly links below.

Now onto the Week 5 One Room Challenge Update

We are still awaiting the arrival of the pendant lights that will be installed over the peninsula, but the main light fixture has been installed.

Not only does it look great, but it really brightens up the whole room!

The range hood was installed, and framed in. She has decided to go with the same tongue and groove pine that was used on the back of the peninsula.

Now that the range hood is installed, Tim was able to finish to subway tile back splash.

The drawer pulls and knobs were spray painted to match the gold tone of the light fixture. I love how they look against the navy blue cabinets.

Samantha was excited to see how the floor is going to look, so she just pulled out some planks and lined them up. This flooring is going to do her entire house.

The plan for this (final) week is to complete custom surround and the flooring. Wednesday the trim, moldings, cabinet hardware and all the touch ups will be complete. Fingers crossed!
