Guest Room Linen Closet - One Room Challenge Week 5

As I mentioned last week, the biggest remaining to-do in the guest bathroom is the linen closet. This closet originally had a door when we moved in, but we ended up removing all of the closet doors throughout the house. They were metal, barely opened, and were just gross. In this bathroom, I decided that I didn’t want to add a closet door back, and I’d just roll with an open linen closet. That means it actually needs to look nice in addition to being super functional. You might have caught a peek of this currently icky closet on my instagram stories

Guest Bathroom Paint and Progress - One Room Challenge Week 3

Thanks for coming back for Week 3 of the One Room Challenge! We actually got a lotttt finished this past week, but for the sake of stretching my posts out over 6 weeks, I’m going to focus on the paint and a few other details, and save the vanity for next week!

We started painting this room a couple weeks ago, but then had to mud some additional things, so it actually got finished being painted this week. The paint is Valspar that’s color-matched to Farrow and Ball’s Pigeon (because let’s be honest, we’re already so over budget on this house and I’m not spending $100+ for a gallon of paint right now!) We already had the paint on hand because we’ll be using it on part of our fireplace wall (that’s another project for another day) and I’m just obsessed with it lately. Our kitchen cabinets are actually pretty much this color as well, so I guess you could say I’m feelin’ it for this house!

Guest Bathroom Design Plans - One Room Challenge Week 1

I’ve been wanting to participate in the One Room Challenge for literally years, but the timing has always been off. Last October I was about to get married, this past spring I was homeless and in the middle of a move…so Fall 2018 it is!
