One Room Challege – Week 2 – Master Bath

Well, it’s week 2.  How did that happen?   If you’re here for the first time, I am a guest participant in Linda from Calling it Home’s famous One Room Challenge.  There are 20 designers invited by Linda to transform a room over the next 5 weeks.  You can check out what they’re doing every Wednesday via the link on her blog.  And there are a whopping 249 guest participants, of which I am one, doing the same.  You can check out our progress on Thursdays.  I am transforming our very adequate, but builder’s grade, master bathroom.

This was the week of demolition.  #messy  The old tile has been removed.  The new floor tile is completely installed.  Just the tub surround left to do.  What a difference!!  I’m sharing my inspiration pieces so you can get an idea where I’m heading with this. #chinoiseriechicbr 004

Here’s my to do list and the few check-offs to date:

  • Replace all tile – almost
  • Replace vanity top – purchased slab, waiting on template, then installation
  • New faucets – better get going
  • New vanity and ceiling lights (ceiling light to be painted) – purchased – installation next week (fingers crossed)  
  • Replace huge mirror with 2 mirrors, one over each sink –  got em – not up yet
  • Paint pickled oak vanity
  • Paint room
  • Window treatments – fabric chosen
  • Clean – I get all the glamour jobs
  • Style – I also get the fun jobs

Here’s a little peak at a before and after of the floor.  I love the new tile,  but I also love the thinner grout line.  Yes, it’s the little things.  Details!  Can you tell I’m excited?

Recapping – there will be marble, blue and white, white and a surprise wall color.  Still deciding on an accent color.  I have 2 or 3 ideas, but no decisions.  This one is tough.

Thanks for stopping by!  See you next week.

  1. Cathy I adore the direction that your room is headed towards! You did SO much better than I did in my room this week.

    I would love for you to share this post at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. I think our readers would really enjoy it!

  2. Oh wow! You already got the new floors installed. That is wonderful!! I know the finished product will be wonderful! It is amazing how much better we feel mentally when a project is knocked off our to-do list:)


    1. Yes! I was lucky to get it done so quick. But that’s after 2 other installers came to the house to look at the job and then never called me back!!! I was happy to get someone who would show up and they actually did a fantastic job. Phew!! Thanks for stopping by! I’m enjoying following you as well!!
