One Room Challenge Spring 2020: Week One - The Room

Posted by admin on

Starting a One Room Challenge in the middle of a pandemic adds another layer of challenge. Since I'm home all day anyway so I thought what better time to #stayhomeanddiy. We moved into this house just under a year ago and these two bathroom are the last remaining renovations we need to make. Well not including the patio, basement and dining room. As usual the #ORC gives me the motivation I need to accomplish a room makeover goal in a tight timeline (six weeks to be exact).

If this is your first time hearing about it, the One Room Challenge is a design event that takes place twice a year (Spring and Fall), where designers have six weeks to makeover one room in their home and blog about it along the way. I have participated in the One Room Challenge six times, one time as a featured designer and four times as a guest participant.

Previous One Room Challenge Reveals:

Kitchen - Office - Dining room - Laundry room - Patio - Another Laundry Room

The Rooms (That's right I'm doing two yikes):

Room #1. Main Bathroom - Let's be honest, there is nothing majorly wrong with this room.  The only problem I have is that it doesn't match with the other rooms in our house. Since it's one of the most used rooms in the house and our kids pretty much own it I decided it needed a makeover. We're going to refinish the cabinet but add a new counter top, new mirror, new light fixture, new faucet and some sort of wall treatment.

Room #2. Master Bathroom
This little nugget of a room has some serious nostalgia. If my husband would let me I'd keep the wallpaper. The pink tube of a shower has to go though. The previous owners literally painted the pink tile white and it wasn't proving the test of time. Similar to the main bathroom we are going to refinish the cabinet, redo the shower with a glass door and pony wall and add a new mirror, light fixture, faucet and yes some sort of wall treatment.
