Alright friends it’s finally here! The One Room Challenge! I have been patiently waiting for this day to arrive for almost a year now! I was planning to participate in the Spring 2016 challenge but I had recently found out I was pregnant and life was hectic and the pregnancy wasn’t the easiest. I decided to step down from the challenge and postpone it until this Fall. Well….now that I’m expecting and baby is almost here I decided to be crazy and do TWO reveals this Fall 2016 challenge! So 8 months pregnant and two renovations…no big deal right?!
So I apologize if you aren’t into room reveals as this is going to consume my blog for the next 6 weeks. I will be taking a break from Friday Favorites. In the next couple weeks I will also have a small mini master bedroom reveal for you all too! Can you tell I’m nesting?
Well to start of the challenge we will begin with our bathroom. We have 3 bathrooms in our home, two upstairs and one downstairs. Our master bathroom is TINY so that’s my husband’s bathroom and I use the main bathroom upstairs. It is kind of strange not sharing a bathroom but it’s also kind of great at the same time! I have sooo much space! What’s a girl not to love? Well….the bathroom itself is not my favorite. It has a ton of storage but almost too much! I know that may sound strange coming from a woman but this bathroom is loaded with unnecessary storage. I have managed to fill it up but am willing to compromise some storage to open the space up a little. More details on that later….
Here is the before of our main bathroom:
It’s not terrible but it defintely needs a little TLC. It is your basic 90s builder grade bathroom. Here is my checklist (in no specific order) for the final reveal:
- Paint bathroom cabinets & trim
- Paint vanity counter tops
- Rip out previous linoleum (2 layers..fun!)
- Tile floor & wall
- Remove medicine cabinet & cabinet above toilet
- Replace mirror
- Replace light fixture
- Change outlets & switches
- Repair holes in wall from cabinet removal & towel bars
- Paint walls
- Replace toilet paper holder and towel rod
- Replace faucet
Now here is my inspiration board for the project and how I hope for the final reveal to resemble:
Well I better get going as I still have so much left to do and so little time! I want to thank all of my sponsors for this reveal!
