You guys!!!! I am so excited to announce that I have been selected to participate in the One Room Challenge through Jeffrey Court! I will be competing against 15 other bloggers and designers to transform a space of our choosing in just 6 weeks! I know, I’m crazy, but you guys wouldn’t expect anything else from me right?? First, lets take a look at the space that I’m doing!
Our master bathroom is seriously the last room in the house that hasn’t been touched and boy is she in desperate need of a makeover! When the opportunity came up to be a part of the Jeffrey Court One Room Challenge, I threw my hat in the ring because I wanted the accountability that comes with this challenge. Six weeks folks, that’s all I have. SIX. WEEKS.
I mean she’s been this way for 16 years, it’s time and she knows it. As a matter of fact, shortly after I took the picture of the bathtub, I grabbed a corner of the tile on the ledge and it literally came off with my hands. Yes I workout, but I’m not THAT strong to be able to pull tile off of a fixture. Or am I….
I picked out my tile and while I was blown away by the selections, I couldn’t wait to see them in the flesh! Needless to say when the semi truck pulled up, I had to restrain myself so I didn’t scare poor Darryl. Yep, I asked his name because any man who brings you an 800 lb load of tile and uses a dolly to drag it up your driveway, deserves a proper introduction. ANNNNDDDD It came with a pallet that I get to keep. (Yes I am THAT easy to please.)
Where do we go from here? Well, we have to talk about the inspiration. Truth be told, I’m a little all over the place with this one. Coming off of a million planks of shiplap, I wanted to steer clear of it and I honestly wanted to get away a bit from true farmhouse. I know, I’m just as shocked as you are. I’m going for a rustic, coastal, vintage, shabby chic vibe. It’s a lot I know, and I really couldn’t tie up the loose ends until I had the tile in front of my face because looking at it online and in person, is different for me.
First up, the inspiration:
I loved the first picture from Decor Pad because I’m not thrilled with the fact that the toilet is just hanging out in the open space and having a little ledge like this one could help with privacy.
I mean how can I not reference the stylings of THE Joanna Gaines and this show stopper from Magnolia? Everything about this photo gave me feels.
And I couldn’t help but fall in love with the color of these cabinets and the sink from Farm House for Four.
Gahhhhhh, so much inspiration out there and my wheels are spinning! I know that I would love to bring in elements of copper, black, natural wood, blush, and even a peacock blue. So you can clearly see that I have more work cut out for me.
If you remember I asked you guys which tile I should pick and here is the winner!
I found some bathroom fixtures to bring the space to life and compliment the tile.
I also need to give a HUGE thanks to my friends at Ryobi for providing me with a wet saw and stand for this project!!
There you have it!! Check back weekly and I’ll have updates and the judging actually starts on April 19th!
