one room challenge...week 6

Woo hoo! We're in the home stretch, I saved my ugliest, scariest diy for last,
I kept debating whether or not to do it. So far I've only prepped for a few hours,
 and haven't pulled the trigger yet. (I'll give you a peek at the end.) 
As my reward for thinking about tackling the ugly project,
 I had fun making decisions about everything else I could think of this week!

This has taken a month for me to decide.
 Can anyone relate to my little binge before the purge.
Gray rug or tan rug, flat rug or fluffy rug, pattern rug, solid rug,
natural fiber rug, cozy cotton rug??

White towels, Cream towels, Pattern towels, Monogram towels??

Swing arm lamps, clean and simple or a little detail?
Notice the Roman Shade...new and improved folds ...done!


A package arrived from the talented Kerry! :)



Gold frames, black frames??


Gave the trim a fresh coat of paint.


So, some of you thought this was our powder room, the truth is it's a main bath that
 two of us use, and the shower surround, and fixtures couldn't be prettier. I'm going to
paint the sink and tub faucets and shower surround. I still want them gold, just not
this super shiny 90's look!


The caulking has to be removed or you don't get a nice clean paint line.

If you don't want to disassemble the shower, this is the deal.

Keep your fingers crossed, and if it looks like a powder room next week,
 just go with it! :)

Go see what my fabulous friends have been up to this week!

You are so brave to paint that. You know I would paint almost anything, but you are upping the ante on that baby. Good luck. Yes, I take home the store and then return most of it.

Kim @ Plumberry Pie said...

Good luck!! :)

Holly said...

Thanks for the intro to a new artist - I can't wait to check out her work and see which one you chose. Out of all of those decisions the one thing I do like is the clean white shade on the sconce. That's all I can decide on today :)

Dana Frieling said...

Oh, I'm so glad you're tackling this. I have a feeling I'm going to need the tutorial one day. Here's to hoping it goes/went smoothly!

Julia Konya said...

So many fun decisions!
Can't wait to see that shower door makeover!

Love the chevron patterned rug at top. Could you give the source?

Nancie Bee said...

You can paint faucets?? Learn something new every day!
My parents bathroom growing up was that lovely pink fifties tile that had a black tile trim. My mom painted out all the black with a metallic gold-also had no idea you could do that, but she did. Of course, this is the same mom that took a sledgehammer to a wall because my dad was a little slow on getting some work done!!

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

You are one ambitious lady - why don't you come help me with some of my house projects I keep putting off? Pretty please??!

Lori said...

Oh you know I relate to the binge and purge- unable to decide until I see it in the room. I love all of the options. You are so ambitious- the prep work looks like quite a chore but I'm sure it will be worth it. Good luck!

Beth Connolly said...

So many choices. Can't wait to see it all done!

Sam [The Peak of Tres Chic] said...

It's the final stretch! I am so in awe of you
For all the work you have done and accomplished in 6 short weeks. I know it will all come together and be beautiful for the reveal- small bathroom or not! ;)

Lauren said...

I can't wait to see how your shower turns out. I have the same 90's gold and have been debating about whether to change it or not since brass is coming back in a big way. What product are you using to paint it? I would love to find a good brushed gold look that's a little more subtle than the bright shiny gold of the 90's!

Elisa of Fancy Free Me said...

I hope the shower goes as planned! And I hear ya with the indecisiveness-I've been trying to make a rug selection for my home for at least a month ;)

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

Only one more week! I think everything is looking fabulous. Fingers crossed the shower turns out just as you want it to.

Mary Ann at classic•casual•home said...

Wow...decisions, decisions! I can't wait for next Wednesday.

Kim said...

I am voting "trim" on all challenges today!! I love the pop it gives your lights!! Oh boy, I just had someone else re-grout our shower ... I should have consulted you first!! xo

Kerry Steele- Design du Monde said...

Wow are you ambitious! All of that tape makes me tired just looking at it but I am sure this is going to be one drop-dead space.

Fletcher @ High Cotton Style said...

I think it's going to look great! Good luck-I can't wait to see it!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Seriously? That is an ambitious project, Pam! Good luck getting it all done - sure I will love it - I love everything you do!

René said...

Oh I agree...so many decisions. What an undertaking to paint the shower surround. You're doing great!

Kim @ La Belle Époque said...

Nicole Scott said...

Loving it! Can't wait to see how the paint technique turns out!!

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

You are painting a shower surround? I can't imagine? How do you paint the facets and trim work around the stall? You amaze me!

Andrea said...

Wow, so many decisions. I can't wait to see how your shower surround comes out. You just can't be stopped! Go girl!

Luci @Bungalow At Home said...

OMG! That's my exact shower and tile! I have switched out the faucet, shower head and towel bars but have not the actual shower.. I really want to gut the whole thing but can't afford to so it's stayed this way for 5 years now:(
I will wait anxiously to see how yours turns out and them maybe I'll finally tackle it.

Gypsy Heart said...

Decisions, decisions! You are so talented ~ I know it's going to be gorgeous when you finish. Can't wait to see the shower surround in its new style.

Amber B (Simple Dwellings) said...

I am with Luci, that's our exact same shower surround. I have changed the little things, but would love to see how this turns out! How amazing! I also love the trim added to the sconce shade. I know this room will be fabulous!

Naomi@DesignManifest said...

It cracks me up whenever I encounter a client who thinks there are no design decisions in a small bathroom. I think this post proves otherwise! Looking fantastic. I Love that patterned rug. Prob not with your shades, but it sure is pretty.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Well, I have to admit..I thought it was your powder room as we were only seeing the sink area as a sneak peek...i must have missed something..somewhere!....I know I get myself in a total "design paralysis" when I have too many choices...I know that you will chose the perfect things...your taste is impeccable...and good luck on the painting of the shiny brass...looks like a lot of work!!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Oh my, you're tackling the surround and faucets with paint? I've always been afraid to do that. You're getting to the fun part with all of the finishing touches. Can't wait!
