The One Room Challenge for spring has just begun. If you aren’t familiar, the one room challenge is a challenge to fully redo one room in just six weeks.
And it came at the PERFECT time because I just started working on my master bathroom. So, I decided to join as a guest participant.
The Journey of My Master Bathroom
When we purchased this house the master bathroom was BY FAR the worst room in the entire house. It was full of water damage – complete with spongy floors and a rotting wall.
It was also covered in old wall paper, had pink trim (not in a good way) and three layers of incredibly ugly linoleum flooring.
I’m kicking myself for not taking pictures. But I didn’t because…it was an embarrassing room.
A couple years I ago I gave the room a very cheap face lift. I took down the wall paper, painted and put down vinyl plank flooring.
What I didn’t do was address the water damage…which only grew worse. #DUH
So, earlier this year we ripped out the shower and replaced the rotting drywall and sub floor. And the bathroom has set like ever since.
No floors, an unpainted wall and an absolutely unusuable bathroom. (We’ve been using the kid’s bathroom instead.)
The New Bathroom Plans
My husband is not the handy type. It became clear to me that he was never going to install the tile we had purchased. So, I started doing it myself.
This whole bathroom will be DIYed by yours truly and on a budget.
Still, I’ve got a strong plan and I think it’s going to look amazing!
Here’s the plan:
- Grey Ceramic Herringbone Tile
- DIY White Concrete Countertop
- Dark Blue Trim, White Walls
- New Sink and Faucet
- New Shower Curtain
- Possibly Refinishing the Vanity (Not sure yet.)
Here’s my mood board. I’m going for a fresh, clean and minimal look.
Here’s a look at the bathroom’s current state and a sneak peak of my tile progress.
I hope to have the tile complete in a few days and will give you an update then.
In the meantime, check out all of the other guest participants in the One Room Challenge.
