One Room Challenge: Powder Room (week 3)

It’s 11:47pm as I start this post on my cell phone because we’ve just come back to my parents’ house from our house where we were painting. What am I talking about? Well, long story short, we’re renovating our entire house and living with my parents in the meantime (because twins) and in trying to move in as soon as this weekend, we’re trying to speed up some things like painting. 

So what have I done in the powder room, you ask? (You can see weeks 1 and 2 or the whole ORC history here


Ummmmmmm….

What?

Ok so I didn’t do NOTHING, but it’s pretty darn close. I started painting in between the grooves of the shiplap and after like 11 minutes I quit. I need to spray the paint in there. Painting will take me forever and probably cause half my head of hair to go grey. So. No thanks. 

I also did a little shopping. I got the towel bars in the mood board and I think I have the right mirror to go in there. I still think I may want round, but that wood frame called out to me! 


I also tried to pick out a few other accessories like these…

I’m kind of loving the blue in that soap dispenser for a hint of colour, but I’ll probably chicken out. 

The basket I really want is out of stock at every nearby IKEA so I’m trying to find a replacement. 

And yes, those are technically kitchen towels, but they honestly make great hand towels and are a great price, too! 

In other news….our kitchen cabinets got put together this week and I picked out and ordered hardware for them. I’m so excited! 

Now I just need to figure out countertops. And appliances. And a backsplash. No big deal, right?

As for the powder room, once we’re actually living in our house, I’m hoping we can get a little bit more done. And then actually have something to show you next week. 

Cross your fingers for me! Haha 

Don’t forget to see what the other linking participants are up to this week!

    You are like Supermom. Seriously. I don’t know how you do it! I LOVE the floors you chose for the bathroom. I’ve been thinking about those tiles for our master bath as well. Perhaps for another ORC in the future :) Homesense is killing it right now. I love those towels and baskets as well. I can’t wait to see how you pull everything together. xo
