We did it!! We made it to the end of the One Room Challenge. Despite two floods in our basement, we completed a basement bathroom remodel. The most recent flood was last week when we had 10 inches of rain come through in the middle of the night- while we slept. We have lived here for 6 years and the basement has never flooded until this August. And it’s flooded twice since then. I think we have some major grading work in our future.
But, I know why you are here. FOR THE PHOTOS.
ONE ROOM CHALLENGE BATHROOM REVEAL
So, here you go- the finished bathroom.
A reminder of where we started.
We didn’t remove the wallpaper. We mudded over it, sanded, primed, and painted.
This blue and white pottery was basically the jumping off point for the whole room. That and the amazing mural work of Thomas Ard. His projects were a huge inspiration. I bought this painting from him and knew I’d find the perfect spot for it in here.
At the end of the day, I couldn’t bring myself to hang any art on the walls on top of Brooks’ beautiful work, so I placed his painting along with this gorgeous Kayce Hughes painting on our SW Honorable Blue dresser.
At the last minute I decided I wanted a custom shower curtain that came all the way to the floor. Why don’t shower curtain manufacturers make shower curtains long enough? I found this greek key one on Etsy from Windows by Melissa. She put in extra hours to get it to me yesterday and I think it is just what this room needed.
Honestly, when can you really ever have enough Greek Key?? So, I added this rug that gives the room a graphic punch.
And because “Blue and White is Forever”– according to Mark D. Sikes, this bathroom should be good to go into the next century. Timeless and oh so current all at the same time. It’s a conundrum, really.
And that’s a wrap for the One Room Challenge.
