I don’t know what it is about these ORC’s but I think time flies even faster when I’m doing one! I can’t believe it’s week 3 already! Just in case you’re new to my blog or you missed a couple posts, check out Week 1 and Week 2 here. We have 6 weeks to makeover a room in our house and although I chose one of the smallest rooms in our home, it’s still tricky to stay on track. And keep focused on the task at hand! If you know me, I like to start one million projects at the same time (but please, never tell my husband I just admitted that!)
Last week I shared the quickest and easiest way to remove linoleum and although this tile isn’t glued down yet, I wanted to give you a little sneak peak! I had to lay a few tiles down just so you can see! I love the contrast of the dark flooring against the white cabinets and bathtub.
There’s so much pretty inspiration for bathrooms in blogland and I’ve been pinning away like crazy on Pinterest! Here’s a great idea for storing towels from my sweet friend Jamie at Anderson + Grant. You’ll have to pop over to her blog to see how she made this “basket”. We definitely want to stay on budget with this makeover and I love the idea or reusing or repurposing an old item and making it into something pretty and function like Jamie did!
If I look at our to-do list, it sure doesn’t seem like I have much to cross off! However, with a week of spring break last week, a little get-a-away and then getting back to the routine of things, it’s set me back a little but I’m still happy with where we’re at. This week isn’t so much about the pictures, as it was all about unscrewing a bunch of fixtures… and then all that’s left is blank slates so that wouldn’t make for pretty pictures. Our medicine chest is gone and sold, the towel bars are gone, the cabinet hardware is gone and the light fixture is down.
There was a couple things that slowed us down… Once my husband removed the toilet, we noticed some of the subfloor had rotted. My handy husband removed and replaced it and now we’re ready to install our new tile flooring! Another little crazy thing we discovered… our bathroom sinks have no under-the-counter shut offs!? That is not normal, right?? We might just have to call our favorite plumber to install them! How crazy is that!
My agenda for this weekend is shopping… and I’m not complaining! Paint, a mirror, some accessories, etc. Please wish me luck that the items I’m looking for jump right off the shelf and into my cart!
I hope to share a much, much more productive post next week! Here’s the look we’re aiming for… I’m excited to finally start painting and begin to brighten things up!
Thank you so much for bearing with us… as we get all the groundwork done for this bathroom makeover and begin the pretty “stuff” now! Have a fabulous rest of the week, friends! Thanks for stopping by!
