One Room Challenge Week 2: Shower & Decor Update

The first week of our One Room Challenge went great!! Our new tub, faucet and shower tile was installed.  It really brightened up the space and I can’t wait to get started on everything else!

Other Updates

I will start painting the vanities soon!  Yay! We are hoping to demo the rest of the floor and old vanities so the tile floor can be laid.

I also wanted to update you on a few fun decor ideas I am brainstorming for this project:

Accent Wall

I want to do some sort of accent wall in my makeup room behind the mirror and I am leaning towards wallpaper; floral or geometric.  So I am currently waiting for lots of wallpaper samples in the mail!  Oh, and convincing David wallpaper is cool again 🙂

I have never installed wallpaper so it makes me a little nervous, but it is a small space and the mirror will cover a large part of it so I think I can do it!


I also want to do something fun for the drawer knobs on our new vanities.  I think I am going to choose knobs from Anthropologie because they are so fun and unique!

I think little details like the unique knobs are important in design and will make our bathroom more than just another bathroom.  Stayed tuned for more updates next week!
