ORC Week 2 Progress
Week 2 of the One Room Challenge and I’m waiting on a couple of deliveries. Specifically, wallpaper, lighting and… goodies for a last minute plan for the floor situation. Reminder that this is the design masterpiece that is our third floor bathroom:
Until those arrive, I figured this would be the perfect week to quickly build a table for the back wall, prep the floor and take care of a new shower curtain.
The bathroom has a small cabinet so I didn’t *need* storage, but because the sink is a wall mount, there’s no place for folks to place a toilet kit or a hair dryer or a book. I copied the build plans of my North South Maker’s podcast partner in crime, Erin Spain but altered it to suit our bathroom. I made the bench she made taller and wider and added a shelf on the bottom just to balance the look a bit.
It’s a super easy build… I was able to use one 14 foot 2×12 and 2 1/2 inch kreg screws. I stained it Dark Walnut by Minwax in order to coordinate with the exposed beam in the space. I’m a little bit in love.
For the shower curtain, I’m using my favorite trim trick: ball fringe. I found a plain white shower curtain that fit the tiny little shower in there. Then I pinned and sewed my ball fringe on either side of the curtain. Easy peasy, and such a fun update to a basic shower curtain.
As for the floor… I’m taking a gamble on this one. After our master bathroom makeover, the thought of pulling up another adhesive floor made me weak kneed. Especially since I don’t have the budget to replace the toilet. So I’m painting it. There are only a thousand blog posts out there about how someone has painted their floor and most of those folks swear by it… but then I go into the paint store and I’m given a look of a madwoman when I mention painting my vinyl floor. But still I go forth…
Stay tuned for a tutorial on how I’m taking on the floor in the coming weeks! For now… PREP!
