One Room Challenge Week Five

Welcome to week 5 of our bathroom renovation! In real time, we are ending out week 9. We won't be finished by next week, but we'll be hopefully very close!

After last week (when I left you with a picture of my nighttime tile excitement), I knew that Friday would be a no progress day. Side note: our tile guy came for 15 minutes to insert our soap dish on Friday and then said he would be back on Saturday to which he was a no show. Insert pregnant lady and I had a full blown meltdown. Imagine my surprise when I walked in Friday afternoon to see counter-top people there installing something pretty.

The unpainted wood totally throws me off too, but it will be white. 

But then my happiness was taken away, because there are a few cracks in the marble in both kitchen and bathroom. Pretend I didn't mention that. 

Saturday morning, we decided to paint some samples on the wall because we're hoping there will be some paint in our near future. This is on the kitchen wall, but it's the same idea. I painted it in the bathroom as well but didn't get a picture. 

I think we're leaning towards option two from the left except cut by 50%. I don't want too much color in either room. 

Then Monday rolled around and we had tornadoes in the area so I knew that our tile guy wasn't showing up. Low and behold, he was at my house when I got home... working on the kitchen. Progress is progress.  The big bummer was that these terrible storms caused power outages in our area. I'm talking Monday-Wednesday we had to sleep at someone else's house power outages. 

Last night we had the rest of the floor tile cut and mapped out but not down. Sigh.

Let's revisit our checklist to see what we have left...
- Wait on tile to be finished and grouted 
- PAINT everything :)
- Install tub, toilet, and all plumbing fixtures
- Finish up electrical work, hang fixtures
- Install glass shower door 
- Install hardware 
- Figure out a window covering? Thinking of just putting some faux wood blinds that we had up before back up until I can commit and have a clear head
- Find art?
- Hang mirrors 
- Move in? 
- Are you laughing yet?!

Next week, we won't be finished but I'll still share we are. Cheers to positive thoughts and sending good vibes to all our subcontractors! Head back to Calling It Home to see all the other talent!


  1. This is going to be so good...can't wait to see the finale!!

  2. Wow! That is one long power outage! Hope everything is back to working order. Good luck this week!
