One Room Challenge: Powder Room (Week 2)

So this is the part of the ORC that is kind of tricky. You’re either getting a ton of stuff done or you’re sort of waiting to be able to do the things. That’s where I’m at.

Because we’re renovating the entire house, there is so much being done that the powder room isn’t necessarily getting much attention. So what do I even have to share with you all this week? Well, how about a budget breakdown? Those are super fun, right? (insert eye roll emoji here)

But seriously though, budgets are super important, and any tool you can use to keep yourself in check is mighty handy! If you really want to see what I’m working with, you check out my Itsums budget right here!

For something a little more fun, I updated my mood board to include a few more accessories!


This room is VERY monochromatic, so I am considering a bit more colour with the artwork, but we’ll see how that goes. I’m not exactly known for my bold use of colours!

For sources and pricing on everything you see here and a few things you don’t (like the doorknobs I’ve been dreaming about) you can check out the full list.

And if you missed the before photo and the progress shots from last week, catch week 1 right here!

Don’t forget to go over to Calling It Home to see what the 20 designers are up to this week and check out the link-up with hundreds (yes, really) of other ORC participants!

If you need me I’ll be at IKEA picking up some great little accessories, like that basket. Oh, how I love that basket!

    I’ve been seeing that Ikea basket everywhere lately, and I LOVE it! I’m going to have to get myself one. The inspiration looks amazing!

    I personally love the lack of color but I’m sure anything you go with will be amazing.
