Week 1 – One Room Challenge

I am so excited to be a guest participant in the One Room Challenge.  Maybe your wondering what the heck the One Room Challenge is?  The One Room Challenge™, currently in its fifteenth season, is a widely anticipated biannual event every April and October. Over the next 6 weeks I will be transforming a room in my home and showcasing my progress every Thursday.  You can see all the other participants here.

I have chosen my guest bathroom which I revealed to you back in February of 2017.  The bathroom is just fine, but I have never been happy with the color on the walls and there is just no WOW factor.  It is very blah and basic.  I mean, it does look a hellava lot better then when we bought the house.  See the before and current state below.  But, it just needs a little something more.

Here is what I plan to do. I will be going for a nautical/beachy look with navy and whites and vintage beach accessories.  Of course I will trying to do this as inexpensively as possible by DIY-ing as much as I can.

My to do list is as follows……

  • Paint the walls white and either apply wallpaper or navy blue paint behind the toilet.
  • Install some DIY floating shelves behind the toilet.
  • Get new accessories, or ‘shop’ my house for things I may already have that would make a good fit in there.
  • Possibly some new artwork or something vintage and nautical.
  • Paint the mirror Navy.

Check out the vision board I created.   Ba-bye boring bathroom!

Please follow along with me over the next 6 weeks to see my progress. If you aren’t already on my email list, please sign up to get weekly updates.

      Thanks! It is looking good so far, but still a long way to go though. I just checked out your site! Can’t wait to see what you do with that beautiful lake house kitchen.
