ORC Bathroom Remodel

Our house is coming along and we have several projects going on so it makes sense that I should jump aboard the linking up party on Linda's spring edition of the One Room Challenge.

The One Room Challenge consists of redoing a room in 6 weeks and checking in every week during those 6 weeks to update you on the progress. Every Wednesday, Linda of the blog, Calling it Home and the creator of the One Room Challenge hosts her 20 Featured designers/bloggers on their 6 week challenge, and then on Thursdays, any one with a blog can join in on the fun on can link up to her blog.

This challenge is not new to me, I've joined in four times before when redoing our Master Bedroom/Bathroom, one of my daughter's "hidden hangout room", a bar area in our family room and the last one was our laundry room which was not complete because the tile I chose arrived too late before the deadline. Actually the tile is still not installed.

For me picking a project this time around was hard because there's just so much going on at my house right now. To recap for new readers, a tree fell through our roof in November during a high wind storm, and you can read about it here in this post. We have been going through insurance and waiting for good weather, and are FINALLY hitting some good momentum with the rebuilding.  I'm a little nervous about joining in this time around because I have no control on when this room is worked on and when it will be complete. Our whole house should be done in 6 weeks but you know how that goes.

Since we are in this huge remodel of what feels like half of our house, one of the other projects we decided to add to the list was our powder room. You may be familiar with the the children's story, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, well that is ringing true for us and this remodel. One thing is leading to another, but seriously a lot of it just makes sense to get done while in the thick of it all. I will have to do another post on all the added projects we have going on soon.

Back to my One Room Challenge project. The powder room. I'm so embarrassed that I don't have better photos. I had my husband take these real quick for me one day before they started ripping the room apart. The photos don't show much and they don't show all of the room and there was a bad filter on his photos. Basically, what we had going on was a brown oak vanity, brown silestone countertop, and brown walls. Pretty boring. Also, I have to add this is what our bathroom looked like during construction of other areas in our house and was being used by the construction workers. I don't usually have a roll of toilet paper sitting on the counter or the hand towel crumbled there either.

To be honest, I am not 100% sure what I'm doing with this room. I am either going dark or I'm going light. Real nail biter huh? haha  Well, you'll just have to come back next week and see my plan and hopefully I'll come up with a more concrete plan by then. Crossing fingers.


  1. I did a double take when I saw the picture of the tree. What the what? Glad no one was hurt. I'll be following along to see what you do:)

  2. HI Stacey - so excited to see the progress (even if the reason is such a bad one)! I totally get indecisive - I feel like I can't make a decision lately either, which is why the ORC is so great to force it! Looking forward to see what you pick next week...

  3. OMG! That tree! How scary! Looking forward to your plan for the bathroom. I love dark and light, so I totally get the indecision!

  4. Wow, that's a lot of construction to have going on at all once. It's got to be stressful, although it's probably less so to get it all done at once rather than in bits and pieces. We contractors can be disruptive when working in clients' houses for long periods of time, even if we don't mean to be.
