I have to admit, this is one of my favorite makeovers from my 30-Day June Room Challenge last month!! I mean, really, we all did amazing! But some of them just make you say, “WOOOOWWW!!!”
(See more “before” and “afters” from the June Room Challenge HERE!).
Pam signed up for the challenge to update her over-20-years old master bathroom. I feel her pain!! My outdated master bathroom got the hack a couple years ago! So this one resonated with me on a personal level! Didn’t she knock this out the park or what?!?
It looks amazing now!!! And the funny thing is that the counter top doesn’t even look dated now because the base is totally updated! LOVE THAT!
Why did you choose the room/space that you chose?
“It has been a mess for years. I started and stopped several times and it has been many different colors over the years. None of those colors were “just right.” The leaky toilet and bathtub drain finally got to me. This challenge was exactly what I need to make that room a place I was happy to see every morning and evening.” ~ Pam
Is it just my imagination or did she turn those lights upside down….??!!! If so, Pam is a GENIUS! It looks fabulous!!
What’s awesome is that she was about to complete this bathroom just under her $200 budget!
*Broke out her stash of molding from the garage
*Painted the cabinet
*Bought new baseboards
*Added shelving in the niche above the toilet
*had a $3.00 Goodwill shower curtain that worked perfectly
*Used previous paint from the Master Bedroom.
What was the biggest “challenge” of this challenge? What stumped you? Also, what was the “easiest” part?
“The biggest challenge was the toilet. I learned from several videos how to remove it and replace the seal. Once we got it out I kicked it to the curb and purchased a new ( over budget) toilet. I don’t plan on removing toilets too often so this seemed like a good decision.
The floor stumped me. I have a low budget so I chose vinyl tiles to cover the existing vinyl floor. What a mess. They are not adhering well and I am still unhappy with them. When I can afford tile they will go away.
The easiest was my free art. I had so much fun pulling the pieces together.” ~Pam
What piece of advice would you give to someone wanting to tackle a room or space?
“Be ready for it to take twice as long and cost twice as much as you think it will. Especially if you are tackling a floor to ceiling makeover. Take breaks or you will burn yourself out. That one was hard for me.” ~Pam
She’s got that right!! That’s how my projects are. It’s the little things you don’t plan for that cost money–even the tools to do the job!! I also felt burnt out at the end, just to meet my deadline.
But those deadlines are sooo important…. Without a clear deadline, your room ends up taking years. I’m not exaggerating. I bet you have rooms or projects you started and they’re still sitting there waiting on you, too, huh?
Anyhow, Pam did an awesome job. I’m really proud of her!
