I bet many of us have bathrooms like this in our house (like MINE!!!!). Jessica joined the 30-Day June Room Challenge last month because she was updating her narrow half bath. This is what it looked like just over 30 days ago!!! Unbelievable…..
I don’t know what it was about the 70’s, but for some reason, colorful toilets were the rave, huh?!?!
I asked Jessica to tell me more about her makeover:
Why did you choose the room/space that you chose?
“We’re renovating our recently purchased home that was built in 1910. The outdated bathrooms are a definitely must to redo before we can move in. This tiny bath had a custom built cabinet to mount a tiny sink. We had to get creative and do some hunting to find a sink and base to fit in the same space.”~Jessica
What was the biggest “challenge” of this challenge? What stumped you? Also, what was the “easiest” part?
“The biggest challenge of this project was deciding how to replace the existing sink. Once I found a sink with the right footprint from Ikea we had to figure out how to mount it. I drew up plans for a base to custom build but then stumbled upon a perfectly sized console table at Joss and Main.
The easiest fix was swapping out the old lights with some inexpensive schoolhouse sconces from Lowes.”~Jessica
What piece of advice would you give to someone wanting to tackle a room or space?
“Before tackling a room redo I would suggest coming up with a plan of action. Measure your space, pick out a color palette, decide what is staying/going, and what areas of the room or pieces of furniture/decor you want to feature. If you’ve made plans you can go in and knock them out. It’s easy to get bogged down or for the project to stall out if you don’t really know what you want to do in the space.”~Jessica
Has this Room Challenge impacted your life for the better? How so?
“Well it’s always nice to have a finished bathroom. Especially one that’s clean and fresh and doesn’t creep you out.”~Jessica
Jessica rocked it out!!! You can find more details on her bathroom makeover over on her blog, Dear Emmeline!
