Guest Bathroom Makeover Plans~ORC

Hello there!
For those of you that don't know our family moved into our home in Austin, Texas in July.
Most of the rooms in the house had been painted very dark colors which isn't my style at all.
I have been slowly, but surely working on re-doing all of the rooms in the house. Fun!
When I heard it was time once again for Calling It Home's One Room Challenge I knew it was the perfect opportunity to give me the kick in the pants needed to get a room completed!

I decided to give our guest bathroom a complete makeover.
We're going to have house guests this summer and I love the idea of it looking pretty for our guests.
Here is how the bathroom looked in the real estate listing.
It's cute, but it looks like it is meant for a little boy.

There are no windows in here and the paint color makes the room so dark.
I definitely want to lighten up the space.
I'm hoping some creamy white walls will do the trick.

The orange oak vanity is outdated and just not pretty.
I plan to paint it and add handles and knobs.
The toilet paper holder is constantly breaking, so I need to come up with a solution for that.

I'd like to find a new mirror for above the vanity.
But if I can't find one that I like, I will paint the frame to match the vanity.

A new shower curtain, rugs, artwork and accessories and I think we'll have a whole new space!
So here is a look at my plans for the room.
Lighter, brighter and it has the cottage style that I adore.
I have 6 weeks to get this done....wish me luck!

  1. This bathroom is laid out exactly like my son's bathroom upstairs. I gave it a makeover over a year or so ago using the same colors you selected. Except I painted the walls light grey and kept the vanity white. So, I'm super excited to see what you do with this space! I love your inspiration board you put together! I can't wait to see it. I know it will look great.

  2. This is the exact layout of our bathroom! So excite to see how this space turns out! Good Luck Lisa!

  3. That's the same layout as one of my bathrooms too! I almost picked that room for the ORC, but decided on the master bedroom instead. I'm excited to see how your room turns out and what I can copy for my bathroom =)

  4. Love your plans for the bathroom -- it's going to be so fresh and pretty! Can't wait to see how it all turns out -- should be a fun and BUSY 6 weeks! :)

  5. This is going to be beautiful, Lisa! Excited to see the end result. :-)

  6. Just like our bathroom! Watching....
