Week 6 of the One Room challenge, Its reveal day! This project got a little hairy at the end, I probably painted for 5 hrs on Sunday. It’s a small bathroom, but the extra divider walls and cramped spaces made painting take so long.
We are really happy with how it turned out. I didn’t go into this bathroom saying, let’s go modern farmhouse, but it’s definitely where we ended up. It’s in line with the rest of the house and works well. To be fair, we went very safe in this bathroom, there’s talk of moving in the next few years, and right when we began this bathroom a home fell into our lap. It’s a total gut job, which of course I love. The current owners are taking their time on whether they want to sell it to us or not (it’s not officially on the market and no one has lived in it for over 10 years!), so its just up in the air right now. But yes, risks were minimal because of resale and budget. But you know what, theres a reason “safe” design is beautiful, its made to reach and please a wide audience.
Before you scroll down, in case you forgot where we started, check out the Week 1of ORC. Then we started with some intense tile demo in Week 2. And most of the tile work was done by then. In Week 3 the electrical got mostly flushed out, and we completed it by Week 4. Not much happened for Week 5, besides some decor decision and a lovely vintage rug. The textured drywall and painting were squeaked in this last weekend.
Whew, we’ve come a long way! And I feel transparency about remodeling/design costs is really important. So when I do my source post I will discuss budget and costs.
Ok, enough of that, lets look at pretty things. I love how bright and airy it feels, walking by it in the hallway just lifts my mood. The kids like it to. Let me know if you want to know about any of the colors, items we used, but I will do a separate post listing all the sources eventually. Enjoy!
