Bathroom Makeover Final Reveal! ORC – Fall 2016
Hi all and welcome back! I can’t believe it’s done. It’s Wednesday at about 7pm and I seriously just finished. I have 5 hours to spare! Nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh??? It was a stressful six weeks if I’m being honest. In case you are new here, I am one of the guest participants in the One Room Challenge sponsored by Calling it Home. I am second guessing everything now and still trying to move things around. But, overall I’m super excited this is done and we don’t have the awful mess that it was before anymore. So, without further ado, here is the hall bathroom makeover!
Do you remember where we started back six or so weeks ago? This was our ugly, dated, 70s bathroom…
I got my plan together for where I wanted to go and it looked like this.
This was the first time I used a program to draw a room and plan it out and it was so helpful in sticking to a plan. I gutted the entire space. We had a contractor set the new shower pan and build the new half wall, then I got to work. I had detailed posts on some of the project but will have the other projects coming very soon. So, after prepping the floor, tiling everything, building a vanity, picking out accessories and painting, we have our new bathroom.
Look back over the progress!

Whew, I learned a LOT! Crazy! I’m still planning a few things, like maybe adding two drawers – one on either side of the door? Or a shelf on either side? I don’t’ know, but the vanity still needs something.
Thanks so much to my generous sponsors! I’ll have more info in the specific project posts, but lights were provided by LampsPlus, plywood by my favorite plywood – PureBond and furniture feet for the vanity by Osborne Wood . They mad this journey so worth it, so go give them some love for me! See my full shopping guide for this room HERE.
Well, that’s it for now. Thanks so much for joining me on this six-week journey! Will I be back in the spring? I have no idea ;).

Thank you Roxanne!! I took a risk with that but love the way it turned out. I was physically laying the tile saying “this is going to be a mistake”, haha.

April, you seriously hit this out of the park. Out. Of. The. Park! I am in love with the dark walls, the wood-look tile, your vanity… it feels modern, sophisticated, a little moody in a good way. And those pendant lights!!! Gorgeous!
Ahh, thank you Emily! I saw those lights in a store and planned the whole room around them 🙂

Looks great ~
The wood tile walls are amazing!!
Thank you Jessica!
This was really unexpected and I LOVE it! Great job on building the vanity, it looks stunning and perfect for the space. Love the lights too! And the dark walls! Seriously, I could just keep listing all the beautiful touches with a bunch of exclamation points but I’ll stop. And the different directions of the tile! Ok, couldn’t help it. You should be so proud and excited to see the rest of the “how-to’s” for this space.
Oh you are so sweet, thanks Rachel!!
I’m not usually a fan of dark spaces but this is awesome! I love the moodiness and all your decor choices!
Thank you so much Breanna! I was nervous about the dark too.
April, this is sooo good and sooo you!! I love it! The little metal people are so much fun, and I love all the black and wood together. And the light fixtures!! What a perfect bathroom!
THank you Meg!
Can you tell me how you painted the walls and what colors you used?
Yes! So sorry I left that out. I used Valspar Signature Interior Semigloss paint but used the color “Black Majic” from the Olympic line of paints (I just like Valspar paint better) on the wall behind the vanity and toilet only. On the other three walls I used Valspar Signature Interior Satin in “Knight’s Armor (Olympic)” on the other 3 walls. The ceiling is Bohemian Lace from SW, also Valspar Signature Interior Flat Matte. Hope that helps!
Gloria, I think it looks textured because of the shadows from those awesome lights! The shadows are so cool, truly!
I think you’re right…I’m getting those lights!
I love love love them, I basically planned the whole room around them :).
That was night and day, seriously! Such a sleek and beautiful makeover. Enjoy!
Thank you Iris!
I can’t even believe that’s the same room!! it’s bold and dramatic and I love it!
Thank you Sarah!
Great job on this room. It is very unique and different, and I am very impressed at all that you accomplished in this space!
Thank you Nicki!
April – we love the dramatic transformation of this beautiful bathroom! How did you accomplish so much in just 6 week? Fabulous!
I think I might be dead, not sure…lol. Thanks ladies!
What a fabulous room you created! It’s so beautiful. I love the dark walls with the wood tones.
Oh My Goodness April!!!! You would never even believe where that bathroom started out. It is so sleek and refined now. I love the dark and moody feel to it. You did a fantastic job!
Thanks so much Erin!
April, I seriously can’t believe what you accomplished in this room! You completely transformed it, and I am SO impressed!! The tile you used in the shower and the pattern are so beautiful. Job well done – you deserve a billion high fives!
Thank you so much Jenny! I am glad it’s OVER, haha.
This turned out so nice! I love the modern look and cannot wait for your tutorials. Our bathroom is on our list to be redone and we want to take out the tub for a walk in shower and we love the concrete look. Great job!!!
Thanks Mary! I’m writing the tutorials now, first one up is going to be the walk in shower (I hope)! Thanks for stopping by!
It looks gorgeous!!! Great job!
April, I love the sink. Have pored over your notes and I can’t find who made it. May I ask for the manufacturer and model name, please?
Hi Katy! I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to write back. Here is my affiliate link for the sink – https://amzn.to/3a7BGWn . I’m not sure it’s available right now, but there are some similar options if not. I do love the sink, but there is a lot of splashing, so I had to turn the water level way down.
