Slow & Steady Wins The Race, Right? | Bathroom Progress Report | ORC Week 4

Hey there, can you believe it’s Thursday again?! So you know the saying that slow and steady wins the race? Well, I sure hope that’s true! I feel like I’m working at tortoise pace on this bathroom makeover. I don’t have any real exciting updates for you, but I will say that I have all of next week off of work so I’m planning to kick it into high gear then (hopefully that means next week’s update will be more exciting!).

As a refresher, I started the One Room Challenge alongside a few hundred other bloggers two weeks ago, and I’ve set out to make over our bathroom in five short weeks. Eeek! If you need to catch up, I shared the mood board and design plans in week one and a painting update in week two and a trim update in week three.

The photo above is my favorite view of our bathroom right now. I’m obsessed with that gray/blue and white! Just don’t look too closely at this photo, because the trim still needs finishing touches, the paint needs touching up and I see that the mirror and faucet handle need a good cleaning. I suppose that’s okay in a progress report!

This week, I finished up the batten trim minus a final coat of white paint on all of it. After I painted the vertical batten boards, I realized I didn’t sand them nearly well enough. They looked pretty rough, so I spent what seemed like forever in here the other night sanding them down like crazy. After another coat of paint and the addition of the thick top trim, it’s finally looking finished!

The white mirror frame is such a big improvement from our build-grade mirror held in place with ugly plastic clips. The frame is from Mirror Mate, a company that creates custom frames to fit right over your existing builder grade mirrors. What a clever idea, right? I know I could have DIYed a mirror, but I’m still learning my way around power tools so I appreciated the easy and fast option of sending them a few measurements and getting a ready-to-install frame delivered to my doorstep.

I’ll tell you more about the frame in an upcoming blog post, but for now, I’ll say it was really easy to assemble. I did it last night in about 15 minutes of applying glue to the corner joints and inserting special clips that hold the frame edges together. Doesn’t it look awesome? I know it’s just white, but it’s a tremendous upgrade from our original, frameless mirror.

I also hung up our new shower curtain this week! I’m just as in love with it as I was when I put it on our mood board weeks ago. Don’t mind the wrinkles, I haven’t had time to tackle those yet 😉 I love the cute tassels on the bottom. I may add tassels along the top as well if I get ambitious.

I was looking back at my mood board and am feeling like I’ve made good progress toward bringing my vision to life. A few finishing touches and accessories will help complete it!

Love the greys and textures in this bathroom mood board!

I have a lot of time set aside to work on this makeover next week! The main things left to do are paint the cabinet and closet doors (I’m thinking white paint for those), paint the inside of the closet and cabinets and replace some of the shelving, and hang a couple shelves above the toilet. After that, I should be on the home stretch with just finishing touches remaining, like a window treatment of some sort, new towel bars and cabinet hardware, and pretty accessories for the open shelving above the toilet.

This bathroom may be small, but it is going to be so pretty when it’s done! Now here’s to hoping I can make some significant progress this week, because I only have two weeks left!

I’ll be back with another (hopefully more interesting) progress report next Thursday. Until then, go check out the progress all of the other bloggers are making on their rooms. There are so many inspiring projects in the works! I love seeing real-time progress updates from all of the bloggers during the One Room Challenge.
