Double Doozy Bathroom Remodel: One Room Challenge Link-up

Who's crazy enough to take on not one, but two bathroom remodels at the same time?! Yep, that would be yours truly. I've been holding out on sharing the progress for two reasons:
        1) Everything up until this point has been dusty, dirty and disgusting!
        2) I knew Linda @ Calling It Home would be hosting her infamous One Room Challenge and I wanted to join in the fun.

Since I'm tackling 2 bathrooms, it makes sense to allow myself 12 weeks, right?! The timing of the ORC is perfect because I'm about 6 weeks into our remodels which means the next 6 weeks are when all the magic happens, i.e. the pretty stuff, which is much more fun to see than trenches dug through my foundation.

My goal is to bring our 1980's bathrooms into this century. Below are shots from after we moved in around 2 years ago. I've done some updating here and here, but these were simply bandaid fixes until we were ready to face this thing head on.

Master Bathroom: (Before)




And, then there's the oh so gorgeous, mirrored guest bathroom...

It was funny while it lasted but I wasn't sad at all to say bye bye to this violating bathroom!


Now that you're ready to wash the ugly out of your eyes, let me drench you with my inspiration.
Black and white, enough said.

Texture, texture, texture with an industrial twist.

Ahhh, freestanding tub.

Floating vanity? Why, yes, I'll take one of those.

I'm looking forward to sharing the good, the bad and the ugly.  Please hang around and check back in throughout the next 6 weeks as huge transformations come to life. And, don't forget to click on the ORC Linking Challenge to see tons of crazy talent!

It's been so long since I'd seen those original rooms you inherited! If there is any space asking for an ORC makeover it's these and you're the perfect one to tackle two, you crazy girl! Good luck! :)

Candy@Habitat2Home said...

Oh my! I LOVE your inspiration sources!! So excited to get two for the price of one, plus you're kinda making me feel like a wuss for getting stressed about my completely cosmetic update.

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

Hi Dana! I'm so glad you finally jumped in (double). I am laughing at the pictures of you taking pictures. Can't wait to see how these two come together.

We also have an 80s bathroom...but only one wall of mirrors, not the whole thing like yours! I mean what were they thinking back then;) Can't wait to see what you do with the space.
