I'm so excited to get started on the One Room Challenge! I knew when I moved in with Boo the room that I was going to get started on first was the downstairs bathroom. In my opinion this room is the piece de resistance of the whole house, its just been neglected up until now. The huge jetted tub is the best feature in there, but the room is so cold, echoey (made up word), and sterile that its hard to get comfortable.
The look that I'm going for is Rustic-Glam, something totally cozy, comfortable, and relaxing. Its a look that some think is overdone, but not in my opinion. Hopefully my vision will come through in the process.
I would love to change out the tile around the tub, shower, and floor, but unfortunately it is not in the budget. Not promising that will be the case throughout the whole project though, I'll let you know. Sorry for the quality of the photos, still dreaming of that fancy pants camera.

The paint that's in there now is a mix of some sort of minty green and gross yellow, I have no idea what the last owners were thinking. That's about to be changed to a creamy white and light beige.
New sink and vanity is in the plans, the toilet was already replaced. I'm dreaming of a big shiny mirror and new lighting above that mirror. And the element that I'm most excited about is the wall behind the toilet and sink, a reclaimed wood paneled wall. YAY!
Adding storage in the little nook above the tub.
I really want to add DIY chandelier above the tub as well.
Lots of accessories, soft and fluffy bath towels, and art along the way too. I'm really excited to get started and have you all cheer me on as I go.
Wish me luck!
