• One Room Challenge - Guest Participant - Final Week 6

May 09, 2019

Yaaassss!  We made it!  This One Room Challenge with partner Better Homes and Gardens was the best motivation and inspiration to get this room done.  It is so helpful to have a large project split up into 6 weeks with specific tasks for each week.  The inspiration that comes from all the participants was the fuel for the creative vision of a renovation.

These are just my first images of the room.  I will be doing a shoot this weekend with better lighting.

So that you can truly get an idea of how far this room has come, let's take a look at the before one more time.

Needless to say anything done to update this room would be a major improvement.

And here is the after.

First on the list was to make a little more room in here and have it function better.  Moving the toilet over did just that.

We then wanted to add some architectural detail to the room so we added this maple shiplap from Surfacing Solution with Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain in Natural and Water-Based Polyurethane.

This picture does not do this wall justice.  It was the easiest, quickest DIY and it looks like a professionally done wood feature.  I will be doing a separate blog post on this wood wall and the steps to get this look.

We faced our IKEA vanity with the same wood slats to give it a seamless look.

Onto the smaller details like the amazing brass pendant lights from Mitzi my Hudson Valley Lighting.  These look like jewelry in the room and complement this area perfectly.  They truly are a thing of beauty

A last minute DIY with these wall planters topped it off.

I will also be doing a separate blog post on how to create this.  It's on my Instagram highlights if you want to see it now.

One of the first things I bought for this room and the last final touch was this Block Shop Textiles print in my maple wood frame by Art to Frames.

Here's another look at the shower and bathtub area with this organic looking subway tile that I love.
