One Room Challenge: Back to Basics Bathroom

My absolute favorite thing about blogging is the One Room Challenge, created by Linda of Calling It Home! There is a ton of inspiration!! Plus, all of the other participants are so genuinely nice and supportive! It's been a great experience in the past. This will be my fifth time linking up.

I'll start with the pretty inspiration.

Atlanta Homes Magazine

This next image is what inspired the whole plan. I saw it on Beth's Instagram feed weeks ago and knew then that I wanted to paint our base cabinet black.

Brace yourselves for the "Before" photos:

It's an extraordinarily small bathroom that my entire family shares. I don't want to surrender one of our four bedrooms and start knocking out walls just yet, so this transformation will be strictly cosmetic. 

But I think there's a lot I can do with paint.

And a new window treatment.

And some updated flooring. 

I'll also use accessories to make it feel more cohesive. World Market is having a bath sale right now, so I'm off to pick up a few things.

Wish me luck!!!

  1. I think you're right! Paint will go a long way for this room. I can't wait to follow along.

  2. I love your inspiration and you know I love a black vanity. Can't wait to follow along on your progress!

  3. Paint definitely works miracles, and I think a black vanity will be a lovely, bold choice. You're existing flooring is so interesting--not sure I've seen such blingy floors before, lol. Looking forward to seeing where this goes!

  4. Love your inspiration shots and looking forward to following along!

  5. I've seen paint completly transform a space for the better, and no doubt it will do the same here. Can't wait to follow along and see how this space transforms for you!

  6. Love your inspiration photos. Can't wait to follow along. I'm doing a bathroom as well. We need to focus on how great it's going to be. But bless your heart, I'm lucky enough to have another bathroom to use while master is torn up!

  7. Great inspiration photos. I think paint will go long way especially once you transform your vanity, it's going to look so much better. Can't wait to see where you take it. Karolina x

  8. I am super excited to see how it turns out! So much fun!!

  9. I love the idea of black millwork! The afters are going o be great! I'm also tackling a bathroom for the ORC. Hollie

  10. You're going to be able to do a tonne with paint and accessories. I painted our laundry room base cabinets black in the last ORC (, and I love them. (We also have a black and white bathroom as well, and it's a colour combo I highly recommend). This is going to be a great transformation for you. Good luck!

  11. Oh, behold the wonders of a fresh coat (or two) of paint! I am really looking forward to seeing how those black cabinets turn out. Happy painting!
