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!
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,
and framed inexpensively using this tip at Hobby Lobby.
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.

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!
