One Room Challenge - Cleaning up the Master Bath - Week 1

Yay!  It's that time again!  Linda, from Calling It Home, is once again hosting the One Room Challenge.  This is a platform allowing us all to follow along as 20 design bloggers redesign a space.  She also graciously allows anyone with a blog to link up and share a makeover we complete during the 6 week time frame.

This is my fourth time taking part in the ORC.  In the fall of 2015 we made over our laundry room, in the spring of 2016 we redid our front porch, and then last fall we freshened up our son's room into a space more reflective of him.

This time around we are going to do a cosmetic makeover of our master bathroom.  We have a lot going on this spring, between spring break, kids baseball, and work so we need something that will hopefully provide a lot of impact without as much physical labor.  Several years ago we added some bead board paneling to the space which improved its looks but we never fully finished up our plans for the space.  Last fall we picked up some dark paint in the oops section of Home Depot that we started putting on the walls over Christmas.  Unfortunately we only made it through half the bath though so the "water closet" will be getting its coat  now.  We are going to finish changing out and installing hardware, paint the vanity turquoise, and add some shelves, art and accessories.  Lipstick on the pig in other words.

Here's what I'm going for.



I love the look of dark walls with white paneling and think the turquoise vanity will really pop against it.  Brass hardware and lighting with oil rubbed bronze fixtures will glam it up a little while a slightly hippy vibe in the accessories should keep it from veering to far from the casual vibe I love.

Until then I'll be checking out all the other talented work that is showing up this time around!

  1. I LOVE the dark walls - and you're right, the turquoise vanity will look so nice. We're doing a powder room for the ORC, and just had to check out all the other bathrooms on the list!
