ORC: Wk 6 Little Yellow House Bathroom 1

Good Morning! Today is the official “Reveal” day, the final day for the One Room Challenge lead by Calling it Home twice a year. It was my first time participating, and my husband and I took on quiet a challenge, our first bathroom remodel. I am sad to say we are no where near done, but I am still excited to show you where we are and hope to show my actual reveal in a couple weeks.

To start below are my previous weeks so you can catch up!

This was the original bathroom that we started with – yuck!

Bathroom Remodel 5.7 - 4

My husband and I are doing the tiling ourselves, we are really doing the entire bathroom ourselves, so I probably took off more than I could chew when I said we could be done in 6 weeks (my poor husband).

I think it is looking good even though we are a little behind. My vanity, fixtures are not here yet. Lesson Learned: if you are trying to get a bathroom done in 6 weeks make sure you have all your supplies at the ready!

Here is what some of my inspiration looked like – I hope you stop back soon to see the actual reveal!

Little Yellow House Progress: Floors

When we first moved into our new house it was gross. I mean seriously gross. But one thing (that wasn’t as gross) was that the previous owner saw how gross the carpet throughout was and decided to re-carpet the entire house. Which is kind of a waste since we will eventually be tearing it all out. But since it is brand new and not too dirty or anything it will allow us to work on pulling it up and having the floor re-done in phases which is nice (and nice on the pocket book). So week one of us moving in we pulled up the carpet in the 2 first bedrooms to reveal some beautiful barley used hardwood floors.

I couldn’t believe the difference just pulling up the carpet and a new stain color made to make the house feel more homey. Right now we only have 2 rooms done. We will end up waiting on the living room, hallways and dinning room for a bit. Right now the carpet is providing a nice protective layer to ensure no scratches while we hall tools in and out.
