One Room Challenge: Week Four

Welcome back to another week in the One Room Challenge. If you are just joining me, we are busy transforming our hall bath that was in desperate need of updates. So far, we have re-done the cabinet doors, added new faucets, lighting, hardware, mirrors and tile floor.

You can catch up easily right here:

This week we pretty much finished the plank wall treatment. We still have some finishing touches to do like adding the trim to the top edge of the planks. It has added a much needed dimension to the space and I really love it. After seeing it go up, it seemed to fill the void that I thought the room had in character. I really ached for some textiles in Week Two but this has already helped to fix that problem. Actually, now that I see the walls planked, I am leaning towards a simpler design. Think: clean, coastal, natural, with pops of metallics. I am loving the vibe that I am feeling and I am really loving that it is going to be simpler design than I started to anticipate. That is the great thing about the One Room Challenge- you are really forced to make some quick, major decisions...but I feel like where you gravitate and lean on are ultimately the right ones. So thank you Linda!


Everything in here is painted in Decorators White, by Benjamin Moore. I really like the clean pallette. Do you think it's too much white though? I'm thinking the planks would pop if we painted the walls. Would you paint the wall portion a different color? Obviously, if I am sticking with the neutral/clean look, it would be something very subtle.

Next up, painting the tile! We have everything we need, just need an afternoon to do it. I actually think it will be next weekend before we get to it.


I've got lots to do, but mainly it all involves ordering several things, getting the art hung and switching up the shower curtain situation. I've got a good idea on that but I'm waiting to share! 

Heading over to check out all of the progress this week!

The planks turned out great! It is nice having to make quick decision sometimes, over thinking things is for the birds. ha! You have a big job ahead of you with the tub. Good luck!

I love the all white feel ... maybe your new shower curtain will bring in a fun punch! And the positive side of that is it is way easier to change out a shower curtain if you get bored! (which I do quite often!)

The all white is a fresh, clean feel, but I'm going against the majority. I think a very subtle color on the wall just might bring out the planks more. I'm no interior designer though, so I may have not a clue what I'm talking about. Good luck this week!
