One Room Challenge || Master Bathroom || Before Pictures & Moodboard

So I realize I am a week behind on the One Room Challenge event hosted by Calling It Home, but I still plan on jumping in. In case you aren't up to date with the whole shindig, it's an event that started last Thursday (held every April and October) where you are given 6 weeks to transform a room in your home. I've always loved watching others do this in their homes and honestly I couldn't think of a reason why I shouldn't join in this time around. Other than the fact I hate decorating...

It makes my brain hurt.

But besides the headaches ahead I am super stoked to complete another room in our home, which we have lived in for over four years now. You can see my living room reveal here and my powder room reveal here. That's about as far as it goes. Yeah... four years and it's still a work in progress. Because I'm a procrastinator, indecisive person and lack enthusiasm in the decorating department.

But I've already told my husband I'm all in with getting this done in the next 6 weeks and he's surprisngly just as eager! Almost too eager... as soon as I started telling him my vision he started to tell me his, which included busting out the shower and replacing it with a tiled shower, glass door and rain head faucet. HOLD UP! Brakes please! As much as I love that and would kill for a glamourous shower, I am not about to fit that into this 6 week time frame. Mainly because I will loose my sanity and also because I know my husband. He who likes to start projects and leave them incomplete...

So I made him tone it down and stay small with me with the promise that we can replace the shower in the future.

So let's get on to the exciting stuff shall we?

Why don't I show you my beautiful vision first and the ugly "before" pictures last?

I'm picturing stark gray and white with silver details and the tiniest pop of color in a bouquet of flowers. I love this look for a bathroom. Clean, crisp, bright, open! I'm really excited to transform this space of ours. It has a lot of potential.

Okay, okay... now the henius before pictures. I didn't even bother editing these pictures whatsoever.

 Ugh that faucet! Hideous!
 I started playing with paint swatches... Oh and I took the door off to our closet over a year ago because it swung into the closet and took over too much space. Any suggestions for this doorway? Maybe a curtain?

So there is our master bath in all it's hideous glory. I have no clue why I painted it chocolate brown when I moved in? #whatwasithinking? I can't wait to revamp this area since I use it multiple times a day and I looooove taking bubble baths!

So let's get down to the list making! #swoon #listlover

To do:

+ Paint the ceiling, walls and crown molding (the floor molding has become dingy over time)
+ replace countertop
+ new glass bowl sinks and new faucets
+ possibly a new light fixture if I can't fix the lights on the current one
+ frame mirror in
+ add hardware to cabinets and drawers
+ remove cabinet above toilet, replace with some sort of decor
+ floating shelves above bathtub
+ replace faucet and knobs on bathtub
+ cosmetic things like shower curtain, bath mats, decor containers, etc

What are your thoughts? Please let me know if you have any ideas for this room decor wise - I am all ears!

  1. So exciting! I love your vision for it, good luck! Our bathroom is nothing to write home about, but since we're renting there's nothing we can do about it hah.

  2. Hey girl-I'm jealous!! I'm dying for us to finally buy a house we can fix up! I know y'all aren't tearing up the shower BUT when you do... I would NOT do a rain head fixture!! We rented a house when we first got married and it had one and it was super annoying!! Haha... But to each his own! :) I love the floating shelves idea over the tub for towels and flowers and bath salts and such :) Have fun!!! And P.S. Your bathroom now isn't as bad as you make it out to be ;)

  3. We just bought our first house in November, so I'm all about the home renovations since then =) Honestly, I think you'll be surprised at how much difference a coat of paint and new fixtures make in this space! At least all of your tile and trim are white to start; that's progress! I will caution you against glass vessel sinks. I know of three families that installed them (all from different stores) and they each had different problems: leaks, cracking bowls, etc. Honestly the vanity you have pictured in the top left of your inspiration board gives me major heart eyes. I'd go in that direction!

  4. Your bathtub is divine! I can't wait to see what you do with this space!

  5. I Love all your inspiration!! It's going to look so awesome when you're done! Good luck.

  6. Oh my goodness! I'm so excited about this and pumped that you're joining in the craziness with me! YAYYY!! Girl - it's already gonna look like a new bathroom with paint alone! You know you have my heart with ANY gray + white combo! xx

  7. You should consider doing a sliding "barn" door for your closet. You would have to lose your towel hooks but I think it could look really great!

  8. I adore the direction that your room is headed towards! You did SO much better than I did in my room this week.

    I would love for you to share this post at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. I think our readers would really enjoy it!

    Good luck in the upcoming week!

  9. This space is going to look gorgeous when you're finished! Do you have enough room on that wall to install a pocket door for your closet? That's what we have in our bathroom (we actually have a very similar setup), and it works like a charm.

  10. so exciting! i love the paint color you picked out. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  11. Yes, I could see how an update will make this room looks awesome!I thought your comment about your husband was kind of funny about starting projects and then not completing them! Hello? I may have someone like that, too...LOL! But it's all good - hey at least he's on board with you about it financially!!
