Happy Thursday! Before I start this wrap-up post, I just wanted to send a big old thank you hug after reading all of your sweet comments on our One Room Challenge bathroom makeover! We really appreciate it and loved looking through all of the talented bloggers who participated!
Today I thought I’d share a few of the sources and more info on the room, including how textures played a huge role in our decisions! Ready? Okay let’s do this : )
Almost every single item in this bathroom actually came from either Marshalls/Homegoods or TJMaxx. I love a good bargain, and after a few different trips I found all of these:
- Shower curtain
- Wicker baskets
- White vase & 2 trays (under the vase and in the closet)
- Glass containers on the counter
- Hand soap
- Trash can
- Yellow hand towels and small rolled towels
- Makeup mirror
- Green Frame
- Laundry Baskets
- Jar/Candle/Candle holder
- Garden stool
- Yellow bird feeder
Told you there was a lot from there : ) And here’s the rest!
- Vanity hardware – Home Depot
- Hooks & Towel Rack- Home Depot
- Towels- Bed Bath & Beyond
- Floor tiles- Home Depot
- Faucet- Home Depot
- Toilet- Home Depot
- Light Fixture (Gifted) with new covers- Lowes (not available online)
- Bathmat- Tuesday Morning (not available online)
Tutorials that are planned for the next few weeks include:
- DIY Wood Valance
- Builder Grade Vanity Makeover (Plus countertops!)
- Knock-Off Art (A free project!)
Once I had my color palate set, one of my main goals for this space was to introduce different textures, which was a huge driver in terms of decision making (aka the shopping list above!). One thing I have been learning by trial and error is that not only does texture mean different materials, but different finishes as well. Shine/matte/raw/fabric all come into play. By varying both textures AND finishes, you can easily create interest, even in a room as small as a bathroom. Here’s a few of the different textures I used on this room:
Figuring out how to vary textures was one of my goals to work on for the year, and every project becomes another learning experience that I can experiment with! Here’s how this room ended up:
- Matte: Concrete (after sealer), Flooring
- Raw: Wicker, Wood
- Shine: Sink, Fixtures, Mirror
- Fabric: Shower Curtain, Towels
Sometimes making a simple list like this helps my train my brain before heading out shopping or making any big decisions, and so far it has helped me in a huge stress-reducing way. Maybe I’m the only one that gets stressed when I have 40 options as the store staring at me, but in case I’m not, that’s my tip : ) I also think this is also why people are so drawn to the amazing white/wood/metal/greenery combo right now as well. It ticks all 4 of those boxes making it look flawless in so many spaces.

Great tips! It’s it amazing how much better a room comes together when you strategically design it thinking about things like texture. I wish I would have realized it years ago!
I agree! This is all new- I used to just go with strictly color schemes which did not turn out so great : )
