One Room Challenge: Week 6…The Reveal
I am beyond excited to have this bathroom completed. Let’s just say, the other night I said to Mr. Handsome something like…”When I’m done with this bathroom I’m going to go back to doing my easy fun little projects”.
He took his hand and shielding his face, turned away from me for a second (I think to either roll his eyes or to mouth something he’ll need to confess in church) and then turned back to me with the face of enthusiasm and said, “Oh I know you will. This is all going to turn out great”.
Trying to convince him, I told him I was going to do easy and fun projects again, like painting shutters to put on walls or make a super simple coffee table tray and maybe I would sew some fun stuff for the kids.
Well, I think I have made a believer out of him. My muscles are sore, my legs are tired, and my feet hurt from standing on a ladder…but I’m so thrilled with the result. So, without further delay…
Of course more Turkish towels. You may be wondering how the pink pulls in to the bath. Well…it all started with this gorgeous art from Art Lamay. You see, every year he comes to the local Shrimp Festival and every year I stand in his booth trying to decide which ONE I want. I never could decide, until now.
And can we just stop for a moment and take in that ceiling? All those boards gave me splinters…not really! It’s wallpaper! Can you believe it? It looks so real. York Wallcoverings was kind enough to send me this amazing wallpaper. Truly great wallpaper to work with.
I love all of my new hardware. The door looks so much more substantial and less builder grade with a pretty new knob. The lights were another DIY project of mine. Cabinet hardware had me at “hello” walking down the Hobby Lobby aisle with a 3 year old sleeping on my shoulder.
I love shelving in the bathroom. A basket to hold toilet paper and a spot for towels really makes use of the vertical space. Have I told you that I love Turkish towels? Another benefit, they are thin so if you have a small bathroom they take up very little space. This shelf is holding 3 full size bath towels. Just sayin’….
I know some of you thought I was crazy when I said I was spray painting my shower. But I love how it turned out even though it was a pain to do.
Now for the best part. I love a good before and after so I’ve lined some up for you.
Thanks for checking out my One Room Challenge! I want to say a huge thank you to Linda from Calling It Home for putting together this One Room Challenge. I had a blast and ended up with a bathroom I will enjoy for a long time.
Be sure to hop on over to Linda’s site to see what all the other guest participants have been up to.
If you want to see some really great room makeovers check out the 20 designers who participated. The rooms are drop dead gorgeous.
I’ll be sharing all of my sources and give you the final run-down on my budget for this challenge on Monday. Be sure to stop back so you can shop the room.
One more for the road…
