One Room Challenge...Bathroom reveal(s)

YES! We've crossed the finish line!
  My family is so excited I'm letting them back in the bathroom!
I didn't want them to mess it up, and they've been counting down.
   
A HUGE thank you to our inspiring leader and pioneer of the One Room Challenge,
 Linda @ Calling it Home, (formerly My Crafty Home Life)
for keeping us all on track and encouraging us. She's raised the bar higher than I ever imagined, knocking it out of the park with her incredible entry makeover!

I know you guys just want the pictures, so here you go...
(One more thing, if you're new here you should know I love diy projects, and all the updates 
to the bathroom were done on a budget with diy projects.)


    

Did you notice I said reveals, plural? In keeping with my indecisive personality I couldn't
 choose between neutrals and colorful. A sweet and wise blogger, Kathysue left a
comment, and suggested a bright look for spring/summer and neutral look for fall/winter.
My reply:  Of course! Why does my brain freeze when I'm working on my own projects?
It's why I always choose neutrals, a couple tweaks and you have a new look...perfect
for those of us who like to change it up!
                                            
Spring and Summer look...

                                          
I started by painting wide stripes in Powell Buff and Navajo White.
 I always justify buying something fun with the $$ I save doing diys. Thank you, Kerry Steele
for my new abstract! I love that it brought in some of the colors from my flamingos.
 Yes, the ones that were in the dining room, changes coming soon.
I used my favorite lacquer like paint treatment...again...to bring some life back to the vanity! 


I changed out the sconces for Swing Arm Lamps from Home Depot and added trim detail.
My Urban Outfitters Tiered Pendant makeover is in the Fall and Winter photo session!


DIY Valance and Roman Shade - tutorial in the works.


 I was tickled pink :) when I found these rugs on the clearance rack at TJ Maxx.
 I sewed two 20" x 33" rugs together to get a 5 1/2 ' runner.


The blue vase and glass plate were thrifting finds from long ago. 
I'm sure you weren't expecting a Costco recommendation, but I love fresh white washcloths
to remove my makeup, after washing these are soft and fluffy. $12 for a package of 24,
 split one with a friend. The littlest things make me happy!  

 


BEFORE



I'm so glad I tried it, I'll let you know how it holds up.
Detail boy asked why his stump side table was in the bathtub. 
Btw, you still have time to grow some wheat grass for Easter.

Fall and Winter look...


Pretend the tulips are fall branches. :)
I changed out the lively artwork, rug, and a couple accessories on the vanity.
I had all of the art, the flamingo print was a free image from the NYPL Digital Gallery,
We use an old umbrella stand as our wastebasket, that's the laundry shoot. 


This West Elm Chevron patterned rug in gray and tan will replace the bright one.


DIY Urban Outfitters Tiered Pendant Makeover



Detail boy also asked if that piece of wood was staying on our vanity. 


Do you have a favorite?

Thank you so much for following along, and your kind comments over the past six weeks.
I've been so behind on my thank yous to all of you, but I truly appreciate all of your
 encouragement, especially when I tackle something like the bath fixtures! 
  
I'm so anxious to see what these wonderful blogging friends have for us today!
Have fun checking them out!

cindy @ a curious gardener said...

SO many ideas and all executed so well! Just love the stripes and ikat and the vanity looks great in shiny white. Now relax and enjoy it!

Kerry Steele- Design du Monde said...

The fresh modern elements really make the room. I love it. I am thrilled that you included my art in your design.

Ange said...

Gorgeous! Way to knock it out of the park Pam! Love the winter/summer look idea too. I have that java ikat fabric and love it. The vanity looks great in white too.

Julia Konya said...

I love everything about your bathroom. My favorites are the stripes and the ikat fabric and the white vanity.
I just finished my powder room too and posted it today but unlike your beautiful and bright pictures I had trouble with the photos since there is no window. That said, your photos turned out fantastic.

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

I couldn't wait to get up this morning to see your big reveal and it did NOT disappoint!! Both versions are lovely, I adore how you can change up the look for fall/winter and spring summer with accessories and artwork. Also all your DIY projects that went into this makeover are so amazing, from the tub surround to the roman shade and valance to the fabulous vanity!! You are a DIY rockstar!!!! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy the fruits of your labor!

Scrappy Pink Corner said...

This is gorgeous. Although, I was like, WHAT, you are going to paint that beautiful piece of furniture white? But it really does look beautiful. Love the change up for the fall and winter seasons. Enjoy your gorgeous bathroom and thanks for sharing your journey with us followers. Ana

Kim @ Plumberry Pie said...

It feels so fresh and chic! Love how it turned out, Pam! I'm also very indecisive so I love how you have two looks, made me smile!!! ;) have a great week and happy spring! today it's official, although it's freeeeeezing over here.

Kim said...

Pam, everything is beautiful!! The details make all the difference and look at you getting Two looks in one Reveal!! and can I just say that I am jealous this morning that you have a laundry shoot!!!! Way to go girl!! xo

Nancy said...

Fantastic Pam! I love the window treatment and fabric, and your splashes of pink. What's a Simple Details makeover without some spring grass! I love it in your bucket. You staged your shower, awesome. Love the towels, love the art and your fixtures. Great great job. I know you will love to linger in there now! its so beautiful!

So beautiful!! Looks like a magazine!!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

WOW Pam!! Your bathroom looks amazing, I can't just pick one thing that I love because I love it all!! Your shower door looks brand new!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

Pam, this is fantastic. I am so impressed with your skills. When I first started reading this, I thought there is no possible way I could love any other look than this spring look. BAM, that fall look with the branches :) is just as dreamy. I really love it....no dog shot?

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Oh my...the bathroom is just gorgeous....just as I imagined .. I love all of your many beautiful details from the trim on the sconces to the wonderful pendant light you transformed...genious...Every detail was so carefully executed from the prints to the towels...Just a fantastic transformation...you must be so very happy with the results!!!

Julia | Pawleys Island Posh said...

Wow! What a difference painting that sink made! Love the stripes too.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Pamela, you should be so proud of a job well done. It looks fantastic.

Luci @Bungalow At Home said...

I am still in awe that you painted all the shiny brass! The shower enclosure looks amazing and even if it only hold up for a few years, it's worth it! My favorite change has to be the striped walls, which visually expanded the room and the Ikat fabric shade. Well done Pam!!!

Holly said...

Your 'simple details' are the BEST - beautiful!! My favorite is the fall/winter look. Kick those feet up and celebrate my friend.

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

I just love that you did two different looks. Just perfection. And the shower door turned out fab! Love all of your details!!

Kerry@homecrushblog.com said...

Looks fantastic -- love the stripes, love the light -- and the pink for spring, how gorgeous!

Mallory | Confetti and Stripes said...

It looks Amazing. I can't get over your DIYs!

Gypsy Heart said...

Absolutely gorgeous! You did a fabulous job on each detail. I love the spring/summer look as I'm wanting to lighten things up right now. I know it will be beautiful in the fall ~ my favorite season. Thanks so much for sharing each week! You really are a pro ~

Cathy Wall said...

Pam, this is fabulous and seriously, you make all of your DIY projects look so easy! Love everything about this space, especially the Fall/Winter Spring?Summer looks, brilliant! A beautiful bathroom renovation without the price tag, great job!!!!

Anonymous said...

Love it! Can't wait to research your tutorial on the paint finish. I just found 2 runners on clearance at Target for my basement & was thinking they would look better as one long one but couldn't think how to sew them together---HOW did you do that? Also, looking forward to your coming tutorial on the window treatment. I need something on the 5 windows in my sewing/craft room. Would cost a fortune in fabric to do floor to ceiling panels, but i do not want bamboo shades b/c I want something fun in there like a geometric with current colors. So I may be copying you right & left!!!

Dana Frieling said...

Whew! Bet you're glad this one is done. You've made me tired just following along once a week. ;) It's perfectly you...gorgeous, detailed and classy. Great work, friend.

Kelly @ A Swell Place to Dwell said...

I am in love with those swing arm scones! I seriously think that is a brilliant idea in the bathroom. And that chandelier takes the cake. I really like the spring/summer look - I say pink all year round!

Nicole Scott said...

Wow, Pam this reveal is fantastic. I love how you think about objects in a new way and DIY with such confidence. I love and respect that quality! This bathroom is a stunner, and in two colour ways, sewn runners. genius! Great job.
All the best!

Lori said...

Pam perfection again! I'm always amazed at the beauty you create (and it never shows that it was done on a budget). Also amazed that you tackle such big projects on your own. Love the perfect window treatment, painted stripes, vanity, shower, and pendant light. You are the master Suburban Outfitter!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

You did an amazing job Pam! And you went above and beyond with 2 different looks! love it!

Client said...

Stunning! Just one problem--your Easter guests aren't going to want to leave the bathroom! Thank you sharing and for all of the amazing work you have done on our home. You are a pro!

Painting Closets said...

Clearly BOTB! I love your idea of creating two looks. How much can I copy?! Your blog is my favorite.

Julie Taylor and Danni Greenwalt said...

It looks great Pam....you did a fantastic job! Boy that was a lot of work...Now your going to need a vacation...

Crissy @ House of Marlowe said...

Really beautiful Pam! I love the lightened up look. What an amazing transformation. Enjoy!

LindsB said...

I cant pick a favorite look, they both look so great! I cant even believe that is the same sink because it just looks so great with a coat of paint. And the light fixture? LOVE. You really did amazing here, all of the details are so perfect!

Anonymous said...

Detail Boy and I think alike! Why put the stump and plant in the bathtub?! Guess that's why I'm not a "stylist."

Beth Connolly said...

I love both looks. So many great ideas. The roman shade and the UO light fixture are really fabulous.

charmaine said...

I love how you did two looks! Great job, Pam!

jen said...

Looks GREAT Pam! I just finished a table and chairs yesterday, I'm in love with it! Would you mind checking it out and letting me know what you think? I just blogged about it last night. Have a good and thank you for being an inspiration!

Shauna@Satori Design for Living said...

So gorgeous! Love that you've planned out a summer and winter decorating scheme already. Can't wait to see your window treatment tutorial. I've sewn up romans before, but it's always great to see how someone else does it (perhaps a little simpler than mine, and that would be good!).

Vel Criste said...

Gorgeuos bathroom! Truly magazine-worthy! My most fave detail is the pendant lighting and the stripes! Love everything though, great job!

Gee Singh Newbanks said...

Well done you Pam! Both looks are beautiful!
Cheers, Gee

Hostess to Many Visitors said...

Just spent a fun hour looking at all of the challengers. I love everything about your bathroom and the versatility for seasonal changes. I hope you're taking a "bathroom break" (of a different kind) today! You are a star!

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

Fantastic!
Kathysue is an inspiration to us all.

That is such a fresh and elegant bathroom! The subtle stripes on the walls really were genius!! Love that ikat window treatment, too. How fun that you have two looks. Two for the price/work of one...GOT to love that!

Tara {The Silver Lining} said...

It looks gorgeous!!! Love the stripes and the fabric on the window shade. Such an amazing transformation.

Kathysue said...

I am so glad you used both rugs, one for summer an done for winter look. I don't know which one is my favorite I love them both so much. You really made all the right choices in this room, great touches everywhere. Love the pendant makeover. You must be so pleased with the results, it is gorgeous,
Kathysue

Amazing! What a great trandsormation. I love both looks, and how fun it will be to make changes when new seasons arrive! I think I might try to tackle painting the bathroom door after seeing your reveal!

Kathleen DiPaolo said...

Wonderful transformation! AND, you have 2 transformations! It turned out so well. The light and window treatments are just awesome! Congrats!! xo

Marty said...

LOVE it!! GREAT job! I love the neutrals/stripes/window treament, but I am a fan of the "spring/summer" colorful art work and accessories. Great combo!

Carrie @ Cosy Carolina Interiors said...

I am such a big fan of pink flamingos lately! What a gorgeous bathroom. LOVE the stripes and all the details. It really looks amazing!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Leave it to you to give us two looks in on Challenge. You know how I feel about those strips and I love the cabinet makeover. That Rustoleum Oil-Based is heaven in a can, isn't it? Never tried the Almond, but I love the way it looks in your space and will pick some up for other projects. Enjoy your gorgeous bathroom!!

Tiffany said...

This is beautiful. I love the pairing of the different metals which works really well with your window fabric:)

René said...

It would be hard to choose they both are so pretty! It has been fun watching your bathroom come together Pam. You did a great job!

The Pink Pagoda said...

Pam....are you dying over your gorgeous bathroom??? Seriously I can not believe this makeover!
