So I finally have all the photos to show you guys! As part of the One Room Challenge, we had six weeks to completely redo a space from start to finish, and one of those weeks we were out of town! Because the bathroom functioned well already, we just focused on cosmetic changes. And we tried to keep it as cheap as possible; but, we were able to completely change the entire feel of the bathroom for $400! If you want to see where we started, check out these ugly pictures before and see the progress here: Week 1, Week 2, Week 4, Week 5 and the reveal below! It was brown brown brown! Brown wood trim, brown walls, and brown fixtures–even brown lights!
We painted the walls, painted the cabinets and wood trim, replaced the light fixture, made curtains, and installed board and batten to give the bathroom some architectural interest. We also replaced the baseboard, built a custom mirror frame, and finally added some towel hooks (there were none before!), and some cute storage accessories for the kids toiletries!
With the fresh white paint everything looks different in the bathroom–even the granite counters look completely new!

We painted the bench that was already there, and just added the board and batten trim above it to give the walls some more interest. Then we were able to add some towel hooks for some much needed towel storage! There was not a single towel rack in the bathroom before (or a toilet paper holder either!)

The only problem now is that I want to do this to the rest of our house which means a LOT of work 😉 If you like it, please consider PINNING the image below! Thank you so much for supporting All Things Big and Small!
So what projects are you working on? What is next on your list? Like I said, now I want to do this to the back hallway and downstairs bath–I don’t think E is quite ready for another project though (nor one of that scale!) Maybe in October for the next One Room Challenge 😉
