Welcome back to week six of the One Room Challenge.  This week is reveal week!  Woot Woot!  Thank you to our host Linda from Calling It Home and media partners, HouseBeautiful and Andy and Candis from Old Home Love , for putting this challenge together twice a year to give us the motivation to complete the renovation of a room in our homes.

Spring 2018 ORC featuring our guest bathroom. A six week makeover to update the space.

It was a smooth grueling six week renovation with bumps in the road that slowed me down and almost had me throwing in the towel, but I rallied and pushed through and the result is the amazing transformation of a guest bathroom that I am no longer ashamed to have people use.

I picked up some new skills over the last six weeks.  I can proudly say that I can patch drywall, lay and grout tile, install a new vanity top with the faucet and wire in a new light fixture.  A BIG thanks goes to my hubby for being my advisor on some of the projects (I didn’t want to burn the house down with a bad wiring job and I didn’t want a leaky sink) but all the projects in this renovation were done all by myself.  It really feels good when you can look at a completed space and say “Hey, I did that!”.  This is truly a DIY makeover that any novice renovator can do.

Okay, enough talk….let’s get to what you really came here for, our guest bathroom reveal!

Guest Bathroom Reveal – The Before

No reveal is complete without the ugly before pictures, am I right?  Let’s see just how far this little bathroom has come.

Guest bathroom plan and progress. Small guest bathroom makeover on a budget

A builder grade vanity top, brown faux wood trim, and a medicine cabinet that has seen better days.

A dirty tub surround and outdated linoleum.  There were a couple of things not in the budget to be able to change.  I couldn’t replace the vanity cabinet.  It really isn’t in bad shape, so a paint job did the trick to update it.  The tub surround had to stay also, so it got a good cleaning with Bar Keepers Friend Soft Cleanser.  It cleaned the tub surround and the chrome fixtures right up.

Guest Bathroom Reveal – The After

Oh how far this little bathroom has come from where it started.  Drum roll please…….

Look how gorgeous that blue is on that vanity!  It really pops against the new floor and wallpaper.

I chose to wallpaper every wall in this little bathroom.  I wanted it to really make a statement.  You might think that wallpaper in a small bathroom will make it darker, but it instantly brightened it up (and I hadn’t even put in the new light fixture yet).  All of the baseboard and trim were replaced with real wood trim with a beefier profile and now it matches the family room we built on three years ago.

Guest Bathroom Reveal – The Details

That nasty old linoleum was replaced with ceramic hex tile.  I actually laid it right over top of the linoleum and it is holding up wonderfully.  I absolutely love the vintage look of this tile.

Look how that marble shines, it’s so smooth I can’t stop touching it.  The integrated sink is larger than the previous one and gives it a sleek, smooth profile without losing any space on the rest of the counter top.

I love everything about this bathroom, but I have to say that this light fixture, hands down, has to be my mostest favorite thing. It has a retro vibe that matches wonderfully with the wallpaper.  I love the finish of the metal (yes I mixed my metals) and those GLOBES!  I purchased daytime LED lightbulbs to use in this bathroom since it gets no natural light.  The vintage mirror is from my hoarding decor stash and has beveled glass.  Quite an upgrade from that tired old medicine cabinet.

I went back and forth over what color shower curtain to purchase.  I thought about navy blue to go with the vanity, but I didn’t want to darken the room any.  I thought about tangerine to pick up the color of the flowers in the wallpaper, but couldn’t find one.  I am so glad I didn’t do either of those, this shower curtain adds a touch of boho with it’s linen like texture, the amazing crochet detail, and the cute little tassels on the bottom.

The old wooden shelf and bench are from other areas of our home.  I love how they compliment the wood tone of the mirror and add some organic elements to the space.  The shelf with it’s tarnished brass end caps is a favorite decor piece of mine and will definitely go with us if we ever sell this house.

I picked up the vintage Victorian ladies print at Goodwill, the faux succulent at Big Lots, and the cutie little bird was a Hobby Lobby score.  No bathroom is complete without plenty of soap and I love displaying it in that big glass jar.

Bathrooms are so hard to photograph!  This is the view from the hallway looking in.

These two views were from the bathtub looking out.  I have a little bit of retro style, a little bit of vintage style, and a little bit of boho style, so I am calling this the retro vintage boho guest bathroom.  Add another speciality style to list!

That’s a wrap for this renovation, I hope you enjoyed following along for the last six weeks. If you are just tuning in you can catch up here  WEEK 1 I WEEK 2 I WEEK 3 I WEEK 4 I WEEK 5 I
