Somehow I feel like the last ORC basically just ended, but here we are back at it again and I couldn’t be more excited! If you’re new around here, the One Room Challenge (ORC) is a design challenge that encourages designers, bloggers and social media lovers to take on a project (anything from a wall to an entire home!) and share the progress along the way. This time the challenge is eight weeks long, and we’re going to be taking on our hall bathroom, that will soon be shared by our two little boys. It has great bones but has a bit of a dated-builder-grade appearance, so we’re going to be doing an easy, but totally transformative cosmetic update on it!
Before we start, let’s go down memory lane. At this point I’ve basically lost count, but we’ve done a LOT of these challenges over the years! Here are a few reveals if you’d like to procrastinate anything you should be doing right now. I promise I won’t tell 🙂
And now onto the current project! Let’s start off with the before photos to give a bit of perspective on the project.
It’s not small, it’s not huge, it’s just right for two kids, and I love that it has two sinks!
What are we tackling for this project? Paint, floors, wall tile, counters, lighting, mirrors, toilet and hardware. The vanity will stay the same but get a new lease on life through (hopefully) getting a good sanding and new stain color. The tile and tub will also go unchanged, because that’s just not in the scope of work for us right now. I do have a plan to incorporate the off-white/almond color that exist right now, and I think it will blend in nicely once we’re done!
Now for the fun part, the design!
We’ve already started tackling a little bit of the project and I can’t wait to share more and see how things evolve as we go! Truth be told, this wasn’t the first design plan. AT. ALL.
I went into the tile store to buy the tiles I had originally designed this room around, panicked, and did a complete 180. Normally that is NOT how I roll and I purposely walk in with a plan for a reason. I then walked out to a very confused husband, but I think this plan is even better than before!
