One Room Challenge Week 5

Welcome to week 5 of the One Room Challenge.  If you missed the past four weeks, you can catch up here.   



This week actually made me feel like it will actually come together next week to be a successful ORC.   I mean its still a smidge skeptical that it will happen, but I see hope in my future. 

I have always thoroughly enjoyed the ORC because of the amazing experience it has provided for me and the amazing rooms it allows me to create!!  But I need to be honest, this room has kicked my arse!  I don't know if its the things I have going on or the fact that its a bathroom and they are super crazy to complete, but dang, I am struggling!  

Here is the mood board for my space ~ 


And let's look at my master to do list and see how much I have completed ... 

1.  Remove carpet from bathroom (yes, vomit! I have carpet) and replace with sea grass.
2.  Wallpaper 
3.  Paint ceiling chocolate
4.  Remove existing mirrors and replace with taller ones
5.  Add crown molding
6.  Repaint cabinets 
7.  Change hardware
8.  Shower curtain 
9.  Replace existing white blinds with matchstick 
10.  Cornice for water closet area
11.  Stripe water closet area chocolate and white
12.  Add sconces on mirrors 
13.  Skirt vanity area ... ordered!
14.  New towels with custom monogram ... in the works
15.  New accessories
16.  Vanity bench 
17.  Add custom cabinet to my counter area to break up the extra large counter - SCRATCHED!

Ok, so maybe this is working and it just doesn't feel that way because the wallpaper is the very last thing to be installed.  And I am sure you came this week to see my wallpaper hung.  And it will be, it gets installed on Monday, but I didn't think I could hang it until the walls were painted, and the mirrors were hung, and the lights were installed and I decided where every single thing would end up and hang.  I was not willing to get any paint or extra holes any where in my fabulous new paper.  

Because its the bomb.com!!!


Sigh ... just a few more days and the reveal will be amaze!!

Ok ... here are the pics from this weeks work ~

First of all the ceiling is now chocolate!!


Yes, the old valance is still hanging, but I needed to make sure it wasn't gonna get jacked up before I could rehang.  It's getting moved tomorrow, pinky swear!


I absolutely love the ceiling, love it.  And I can't believe I ever doubted painting it chocolate.  It's bold and its amazing!!!


The shower curtain I designed from a sheet set is done and it is sooo good I can't even stand it.  Its so amazing that I ordered a valance to look the exact same way.  Well, the ruffle would be at the bottom, but you know what I mean!!


Old nasty mirrors are down and ready for the dumpster!  So much easier to remove than I had pictured in my mind!  Taped, pulled and yahooooo!!!  they are done!!


Isn't it already so much better?


New sconces in place and ready for their amazing shades!  They came with black shades, so I need to make a trip to my favorite lamp store for some white ones, but other than that they are perfection!!


Stripes in the water closet ... 


Exactly how I imagined them and I think the stripes off the turquoise chinoiserie will be divine!!


Already styled the water closet, and I could check it off the list ... except for the valance and a new trash can.  


And don't you love the light switches?  I saw them at Lance's and instead of stealing his I ordered my own from Etsy!  He has them all over the master bedroom and bathroom and I immediately fell in love!  I just adore them!!!  

And last, but certainly not least ... my artwork!  


These amazing pieces from The Pink Pagoda literally make the space.  I know they are still on boring painted walls, but picture them on the wallpaper and it is over the top good.  Jennifer was so kind to help me chose these over the phone.  She looked at last week's post with me and chose the pieces that she thought would be absolutely perfect for my space.  

And she was right.  When they arrived I was overwhelmed, and can't wait to see them next week in the final reveal.  I hung them where I will enjoy them the most, on the left side of the tub so I will see them when I am soaking in my new relaxing spa area!!  Thank you Jennifer ... they are perfect!!! xo

Ok, one more week!!!

I can't wait to finish the space and fill next week's post with nothing but eye candy!!!

Until then catch up with my amazing linking partners here!!
