Ready for the final reveal? Here’s a little sneak peak… But first, let’s take a little look back on our little White Room Rally progress over the past three weeks. As a reminder, this is the bathroom I started with: In Week 1, with reader input, I came up with this mood board to guide my design process. As you’ll see, I wasn’t able to fully realize all the elements in my mood board; it takes time to find the items you want at a price you’re willing to pay. But I think I have the foundation set so it should be easier from here.
In Week 2, I removed the counter lips and added toilet caps.
And last week in Week 3 I painted the walls white, added some shelving, art, and organization.
This week was all about accessorizing (the fun stuff that makes an impact!) and layering in texture and pattern. Come have a look!
How are you feeling about that rug? I’m still not completely sold on it…maybe it’s just one of those things that’s a bit outside my comfort level that needs to grow on me. It feels great underfoot though!
The shelf styling really came together pretty effortlessly. I already had most of the items on hand and just went with what was the most functional. It actually helped clear up my linen closet a bit! I’ll hafta share a mini-tutorial on how I put that wood sculpture together—I love free art especially when it has meaning!
I had all these items on hand already except the clock which I picked up from Ikea for 99 cents. It’s great being able to glance over to make sure I’m not running late in the mornings.
We also installed a toilet paper holder (about time!) and a wall mounted magazine rack. In small spaces, it pays to utilize wall space as much as possible!
Here’s my little art grouping again. I opted against buying a double rod towel bar after all. I had included one in my original design thinking I could find a longer towel bar but figured out the towel bar we already have is pretty standard in terms of length. So back up it went!
A hook rack on the back of the door let’s us hang up our robes and extra towels within arms reach of the shower but doesn’t take up any visual space since the door is typically open and therefore the robes are concealed.
I added this little wooden bowl I already had on hand for The Hub’s pocket drop. It’s my way of keeping all those coins contained! Overall, I spent a bit less than I had anticipated for this makeover:
And if you’re wondering where our hamper went, I tucked a laundry basket into our linen closet. I love having it out of sight!
As much as I’d like for our bathroom to be clutterless as I may have you believe, we haven’t been able to completely clear our counter tops. I thought I’d share a day-to-day shot of how our bathroom really looks—complete with bath toys on the floor! Ready for your second bathroom makeover? Elisa’s bathroom is all set and looking gorgeous! Hop on over to Fancy Free Me for the complete reveal.
