Week five One Room Challenge bathroom progress

I never thought I would say this, but surprisingly, I don't feel like we're scrambling doing last minute things for the ORC reveal this time around! Woohoo!!!!! We're one week away from the big reveal and we have all of the big things checked off of our list! It was a completely different story for our kitchen during the fall One Room Challenge. Let me tell you, being ready to cross the finish line is such a better feeling!!!

Week Five Progress:

So, what have we done? Almost everything! Phew! 

Last week, we were about half way done with the tile. This week, my husband focused on finishing up the tile installation while I worked on all of the other things. We honestly didn't expect to be done yet, but once we got into a groove, it was smooth sailing. And having the right tools makes all the difference. I can't keep quiet about how easy the 20-inch Tile Cutter PRO makes those corner pieces!!!

( Side note- that green paint below took THREE coats of paint to cover! 😡 )

He got the grout finished too, which took a little longer than we anticipated, but it looks fantastic! I'm so excited!!! There's some tiny little sneak peeks below, but you'll just have to come back next week to see how the whole shower looks with grout! 😉

I finished caulking and painting the beadboard and moldings, and I also painted the walls. I'm amazed at how much lighter and brighter the room feels with the new color palate!

I also worked on purchasing accessories and decor which you will have to wait until next week to see!

We still need to stain the existing floor grout to match the new shower tile grout. I plan on painting the mirror frame to match the beadboard. Then, all that's left is cleaning and decorating! The fun part!!! :) I'm soooooo excited for the reveal! It's a like an entirely new bathroom!!!!
