ONE ROOM CHALLENGE: MASTER BATHROOM- DEMO! {WEEK 3}


Thank you all for sharing my excitement after seeing the design plan for my Master Bath makeover last week.  I'm so excited to see it all come to life!  I also appreciate your input about the chandelier and the rug situation.  I'm now certain that the chandelier will be centered in the room but am still undecided on a rug.  I love the idea of one large rug in the center, but not sure that I want to just cover up all of pretty new tile we put in.  I know something will work out in time...

If my amazing photos in today's post (ha, right!) caught your attention in the guest participant link up and you're visiting for the first time today, I'm so glad you're here!  Catch up on what you've missed here:

Moving on to this week's One Room Challenge update-  I have absolutely nothing pretty to show you!  But in this scenario, progress itself is beautiful, right?  So without further adieu... IT'S #DEMODAY!!!  (P.S.-I had some trouble yesterday with my last post not going out to e-mail subscribers, so if you missed it there IS something pretty to see there!)

I mentioned previously that we're hiring out the tile demo and installation, and that's the first thing on the list to get done.  But first, we had to prep for the tile work by removing the old whirlpool tub.

I PAINTED MY CHINA CABINET {GREEN CHINA CABINET MAKEOVER}


There's been a project looming for several years that I've wanted to tackle, but other things kept jumping on the "to-do" list ahead of it.  However, since we've had so much time at home and I had all of the supplies on hand, I finally buckled down and painted my china cabinet!  But if you've been a fan of the green china cabinet, never fear!  It's still green, just a slightly different shade.

TARGET OPALHOUSE FAVORITES


Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a nice weekend.  For the past few weeks we've been doing so many random (quarantine) projects around the house and taking advantage of some gorgeous weather to work outside.  Most of those  projectsnever make the blog, I usually just share quick snippets on Instagram.  Maybe I need to do a big round up post of all of those things to share with you here!  I haven't done much on my Master Bathroom One Room Challenge makeover though.  I need to get moving because that finish line is going to be here before I know it!

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE: MASTER BATHROOM- DESIGN PLAN {WEEK 2}


Hi friends, welcome back for my Week 2 update for the One Room Challenge!  This Spring my husband and I are finally tackling a long overdue Master Bathroom Makeover.  If you missed the proof of our dire renovation need, be sure to see all of the "before" photos in last week's post.  After scarring you eyeballs with those beauties, let's focus on prettier things this week as I share our Master Bathroom design plan with you!

I believe I mentioned last week that part of the reason this makeover has taken so long to happen is totally my fault, I just could not decide on a direction I wanted to go with the design.  It didn't help that I love so many different styles and designs, I just couldn't make up my mind!  I knew I wanted it to be classic, timeless, and traditional, but for me that includes a huge dose of color as well.  After years of browsing blogs, Pinterest (follow my Bathrooms inspiration board here), and magazines for inspiration, my creative wheels starting turning and things finally fell in to place.  So without further delay... here's the plan!

GRADUATION GIFT GUIDE


Graduation season is upon us, and although our grads are tragically missing their graduation ceremony and parties, we can and should still shower them with lots of love!  Honestly, I've always been a little stumped for graduation gift ideas.  I mean cash is always an obvious choice (and very much appreciated if the grad is saving up for something big like a computer to use at school), but sometimes one might be looking to give something a bit more personal.  Well now that I've had a past graduate who received some super thoughtful gifts last year, I feel like I can pass along some great Graduation Gift Guide suggestions to you!

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE: MASTER BATHROOM- BEFORE PHOTOS {WEEK 1}


Here we go again... it's been years since I've participated in a One Room Challenge Project.  I think it's taken me that long to recover and get psyched up to take on another project with a deadline!  And obviously, if you followed along with me through the Kids' Bathroom Makeover that started last Fall and didn't wrap up until earlier this Spring, it's clear that I need a deadline to finish a big project in a timely manner.  In the past I've participated three times, 5 years ago with our Master Bedroom, 4 years ago with our Powder Bath, and 2 years ago with my daughter's room.  This time, I'm so excited to be renovating our Master Bathroom.  You'll see, it's a project that is way, way, way overdue!

FIVE FRIDAY FAVORITES


For me these days seem to drag on at times, today the same as yesterday, but boy it seems like Friday came quickly this week!   It helps so much when the weather is beautiful as well.  And, the peonies in my yard are blooming... what could be better??  I've been working on a paint project this week that you've seen if you follow me on Instagram.  I'm waiting on a few finishing touches and will be ready to share it here soon!  Also, another round of the One Room Challenge starts next week and I'm thinking of jumping in and participating.  I need a bit of accountability and a deadline to get a certain project rolling and finished.  I've been a little unmotivated to blog lately but feel that I'm getting past that hump and have several things that I just need to sit down and write up to share with you... some small makeovers, a little travel, a few tutorials and possibly some food and fashion.   However, I'd always like to hear any suggestions of what you'd like to see posts about here, too!  Just leave any ideas in the comments or feel free to message me on Facebook or Instagram
