It’s week two of the One Room Challenge and it’s fun to see the different stages the bloggers are in, some are in full demo mode, some still settling on a plan or picking out fabric and paint. You can see my week one post here. I am prettying up this orangestrosity of a bathroom. Seriously, this thing is glowing and not in a good way.
I’m not doing any demolition to the bathroom all though a new vanity and floor tile would be fabulous, it’s the kids bathroom and I have plans to spend my money elsewhere, like on new counter tops and flooring on the main floor. Last week, I didn’t have a set plan and guess what, I still don’t have one this week. BUT, I did accomplish a few things in the room, thanks to a sale at Menards and my handy hubby. I also found this can of $4 oops paint while we were there so I picked it up and thought if it sucks, it is only $4, we spend that at Cold Stone Creamery for one dish of deliciousness.
After priming over the orange walls, we (ok, not we) hubby installed bead board on all the walls. I originally thought of doing board and batten but decided to kick it old school with sheets of bead board. I want a nice chunky and think board to top it off so we still need to do that. I am also trying to decide on a shower curtain. I don’t really love any of these so not sure what I’ll do. Trying to design a bathroom for a 9 year old girl and 5 year old boy is a definite challenge. I can’t go to boyish or girly in here but also don’t want it to be very kiddish either but not too grown up. Who knows, next week the walls might be a different color all together with a completely different shower curtain. So far I’ve invested $4 into the paint and maybe $35 in bead board. There’s still time to go with a different plan all together! Which shower curtain is your favorite? There was a clear favorite on the Inspiring Hearts & Homes facebook page the other day.
