Week two of the One Room Challenge is in the books and boy did that go by fast. Today I am sharing my guest bathroom plan and progress so far. In case your new here I am Susanne and I run this little blog. This is my second time participating in the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda from Calling It Home and media partner House Beautiful. I joined in the fall 2017 challenge and made over our Forgotten Living Room.
Every makeover starts with before pictures and most of them are of horrible spaces in serious need of some love. This makeover is no different. This bathroom is the only room in our home that hasn’t had anything done to in the entire 16 years we have lived here.

Without further ado….The Before
Looking in from the hallway. Oh dear, that linoleum and brown baseboard. You may be wondering why that random cabinet is up on the wall like that. Our daughter moved home for awhile last year with her littles and she needed a place to keep medicine out of their reach.
The view standing in the bathtub..yes this bathroom is really that small. That outdated medicine cabinet is chipped and I am sure you can see the rust. It’s really quite embarrassing. I would share more, but I think you get the idea.
Guest Bathroom Plan
I am doing a happy dance over this mood board! A classic eclectic mix that makes my heart sing. I am falling in love with brass all over again with the aged look of the handle and the vintage vibe of the mirror and the small touch of it on the vanity lights.
Honeycomb white floor tile and that eclectic pop of color with the wallpaper. Yes, wallpaper. My hubby thinks I am crazy, but I love a good wallpaper and it isn’t such a permanent decor element these days. They even make it in peel and stick so that it comes off easier if you ever want to change it.
I made these purchases this week. My original plan was to paint the linoleum floor, but then I realized this bathroom is so small that floor tile might actually be an affordable option. I was right! Tile and thin set and grout were just a little over $100! That sure beats the heck out of the process of trying to paint a stencil on the linoleum.
A sneak peek of the vanity, it’s all painted and the hardware has been added.
Here is a list of what needs to be done…
repair ceiling paint vanity and add new hardware
- replace vanity top
- replace medicine cabinet with new mirror and lights
- tile floor
- apply new caulk to the tub surround
- put up wallpaper
- add a towel bar
- replace baseboard and door trim
- install new shower curtain rod and shower curtain
This didn’t seem like such a lengthy list in my head. Can I get it done in the 4 weeks that remain? I sure hope so! My DIY CEILING REPAIR went pretty well and painting the vanity was a super easy project.
I will be back next week with another update, so stay tuned! Don’t forget to visit the other participants at the links below, there is talent and inspiration galore.
