One Room Challenge – Master Bath – Before

I am beyond excited to be a linking participant in Linda from Calling It Home’s amazing One Room Challenge.  The challenge is held in the spring and fall.  It’s a 5 week  (6 blog  post) event wherein incredibly talented designers are invited by Linda to redo a room and post their progress over 5 weeks.  Linda also allows bloggers to link as guests to this fabulous event.  The ORC is actually the reason I started my little blog last fall.  Unfortunately, we are a political family and it was during election season. It is entirely possible that I would have driven myself and everyone around me completely insane, so I waited til spring!!  (Oh, and by the way, my candidate won!)  He is the one who will be living through this challenge with me!  Poor him!

I have decided to update our master bathroom.  We purchased our home about 13 years ago and the bathroom was already installed.  It’s a large room – plus;  water closet – plus; shower with small bench – okay;  huge tub – plus and minus;  vast amount of boring oatmeal colored tile on the floor and surrounding the huge tub – negative; and pickled oak vanity, yes pickled oak – beyond negative.  The house was built in 2002 and apparently the builder was ‘lucky’ enough to find a vanity kicking around from the 1990’s.  Why I have not painted it yet is beyond me.

Warning – not so pretty pictures to follow. There were pictures on the walls but I had taken them down before I snapped my before pics.  I guess I’m trying to give myself more exciting before and afters. Swallowing my pride, here goes.


Apparently I was also out of Windex. Obviously the quality and content of the pictures has nowhere to go but up.   Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out the designers (on Wednesday) and linking participants (Thursday) as we make our way through the Linda’s fabulous challenge.  See you next week.

Til next time,
