We are back for our third round of the One Room Challenge™. This time we will be showcasing our navy and white bathroom makeover.

If you found us from the ORC, welcome! We are Vicki and Jenn – a mother/daughter blogging team that loves everything to do with home decor, DIY and getting the look for less. You can visit our past ORC projects Master Closet Makeover and She Sed Reveal to get an idea of what we love to create. This time around we are working at Vicki’s house and creating a navy and white bathroom makeover.

If you are not familiar with the One Room Challenge™ let us remind you. Within the next five weeks we will completely makeover one room from top to bottom. Every Thursday we will give you a progress report and let you know how we are doing. You will not only get to see our progress updates, but of lots of other designers as well! On May 10th we will all have the big reveal of our magnificently completed spaces. The featured designers post on Wednesdays and design bloggers like us will post on Thursdays.

Here’s The Dream

Isn’t this all beautiful? The dream is way better than reality. Plus, can we just say that it is very difficult to photograph a bathroom with zero windows and no direct light whatsoever. Obviously we need to figure this out as soon as possible! Just forgive us for what these photos look like and we will definitely work on getting better pics!

This bathroom hasn’t been decorated for 11 years. Originally this was a vacation home for 9 years before becoming a full-time residence. The above wall is getting a beautiful wallpaper treatment.

Now it is officially time to really change things up. The funky drooping light fixture has got to go. As you can see on the mood board we hope to replace it with a pretty brass fixture.

The vanity will be painted in navy blue and all of the hardware will be replaced with champagne bronze.

Meanwhile this pale yellow wall paint will be eliminated with a bright white satin finish. A new shower curtain is in the works too – but no final decisions have been made yet.

Now, here’s the really scary part. All of the floor and shower tile is going to be painted. Hopefully when it is finished it will look like marble! Please pray, light candles, cross your fingers or whatever it is you do for good luck – because this idea has got to work!

Now, look at this big wall and the tiny grouping of art. It looks like they have been held hostage or something LOL. Not sure yet what this will be replaced with.

Following is our big list that we will update each week.  Hopefully by next Thursday those tiled floors and shower walls will look like marble EEK! And that this wallpaper arrives in time!

  1. take down wall mirror
  2. take down old light fixture
  3. paint walls
  4. add ceiling paint

    Your projects have inspired me to try my hand at sloooowly updating my home, which hasn’t been updated in 12 years and just looks tired. But I’m so intimidated. I thought I would start small, and my hall bathroom is even smaller than the one in your photos! I want to take out the fiberglass tub/shower and replace with a tiled shower, and replace the pedestal sink with a vanity to get more storage in there. At the end of the hallway leading to the bathroom, I’d like to add an accent wall of painted shiplap. Thanks for your inspiration – I’ll come back to your blog and website over and over to keep my courage up! Your decorating ideas are lovely!
