Ok so we are officially a month into the One Room Challenge and I’m feeling pretty confident. The drywall is back up, the new floors are down and the toilet is back in place. Everything I ordered has arrived (minus the vanity) so all we have left to do is wallpaper, style and shoot. Sounds simple right??? I was hoping to have a DIY tutorial on the acrylic frames I was talking about Week 3… but after pricing out the cost of ordering bolts, a large acrylic sheet and the necessary supplies to make the frames I realized it would be cheaper after all to just order a kit.
There have been two major changes to the design plans which I think might be a blessing in disguise. We nixed the marble penny tile for the flooring for one main reason… we still had hardwood floors leftover from the kitchen renovation. Sometimes you just have to work with what you got. Here is a picture of the floors recently installed in our kitchen. AKA the happiest day of my life. You can read more about our new kitchen here.
Since the bathroom is right off of the kitchen I think the floors flow quite nicely if I do say so myself! The other major design change we made was the vanity. Don’t worry I still kept the same gorgeous silhouette… the backsplash had me at hello. But the gray vanity was sold out at Wayfair…. whomp whomp. I ended up ordering the white vanity with the Carrara marble top instead, so fingers crossed it arrives this week! I think it might end up being a better fit. The grey veining in the Carrara will pull in the grey floral beautifully. Plus Im a sucker for classic white vanities. So I’m really not that mad about the grey being out of stock!
Be sure to check out all of the other beautiful spaces being transformed this Fall over on Calling it Home. Hopefully next week I will have some more finished looking progress shots. Here is a revised design board to give you a idea of these changes in place. Have a great weekend!
*Update due to natural disasters across the Nation all guest participants will be given an additional week to complete their challenge. So the final reveal will now be on NOVEMBER 19th*
