One Room Challenge – Week 1 – Master Bathroom Before and Design Plan
I have an extremely exciting announcement for you all! I have decided to participate in the One Room Challenge this spring. If you’re unfamiliar with the One Room Challenge, here’s a quick overview. 20 amazing designers are featured through this challenge and other bloggers are welcome to jump in as guests, which is how I will be participating. (You can see my favorites from last year here)
For this challenge, you are given 6 weeks to transform the room of your choice. And the room we chose is … our master bathroom! We are slowly transforming our house one room at a time and we thought it was time to give one of our personal spaces some more love. Now, we won’t be doing a complete gut of the place due to budget but we will be giving it a much needed facelift.
Here are some of the before pictures:
Nothing to write home about right? It’s time to update this space for us. My husband and I are both creative and do better in spaces that have a personality. This master bathroom is lacking and it’s time to liven it up a little bit.
The Pieces of the Plan:
- Paint the walls
- Stencil behind the vanity
- Makeover the existing floors
- DIY a new tile backsplash
- Replace light fixtures, mirror, and towel racks
- Add color, life, and personality to the space
Here’s the design plan for the space. This is what has been dancing in my head for the last several months. If you are a creative, you know what I mean. You get an idea and that’s all you think about. It’s so nice to finally get it down in visual form to make final decisions and also to show your husband that you’re not actually crazy.
Let me know your thoughts on this design. I am so excited about it! But very nervous for this 6 week deadline. It’s going to be intense but so rewarding. Make sure you go check out the rest of the participants and all of their plans. They are so inspiring. And make sure to check back every Thursday to see progress and the big reveal in 6 weeks. And if you’re not already, follow me on Instagram @rufusandhenrietta to see all of the behind the scenes projects in my stories.
