One Room Challenge: Details and Source List
It's been one week since we completed our master bathroom as part of the One Room Challenge. We've enjoyed six days of not doing anything at all to our house (well except for propping up a section of fence that blew down), and we're getting ready for a day of continuing to install PEX tomorrow! We hope to connect the PEX system to the water main on Saturday, meaning we will finally be able to use this room for more than makeup. Yay!
I thought it would be a good idea to make one post with all the sources for the room.
For starters, the walls are Soft Wool by Valspar for Ace, color matched to Valspar for Lowes. Trim is Feathers of a Dove by Valspar for Ace, color matched to Valspar for Lowes. I decided to try this color combo when I saw Jenny Komenda do it here. The colors look more subtle in this space, and I'm really pleased with the mood of it.
We bought our "vanity" (bookshelf) from World Market. It's the Keenan. We were disappointed to discover while drilling holes for the drains that despite the description on the website, it's actually made of particle board with acacia wood veneers. That probably doesn't bode well for its longevity. If it ever starts to swell or wear badly, we'll have to replace the top with a different material. I kind of hope it will be okay. That's how laminate counters are made, right? Ugh. Anyway, I'm still happy with the look and function of it for now. The two woven baskets are from Target, the wire basket is from Lowes, and the faux marble oval tray is by Better Homes and Gardens from Walmart.
The light fixtures are from Home Depot, and were very inexpensive. I think maybe $15ish each?
sinks (currently on super sale at $62) and faucets were the jumping off point for the whole room. I saw one of my favorite designer/bloggers use them here, and fell in love. The drains were a splurge at $28 each, but I love the pop-up design.
faucets. Installing them came with a huge learning curve, and we ended up tearing out all the drywall in the room behind them to get access, but they were worth the effort! If you buy them for your own house, be warned that the instructions provided in the box don't include information for this model, but for other faucets by the same brand. We had to study the pieces themselves to figure it out. Hot tip: the face on the handles spins off to reveal a screw you can use to take it apart, which is necessary to get it installed. It took us MONTHS to figure that out. You're welcome.
The rug is from Target, and it's mashine washable! Major win. I can't find it online, but check your store!
black marble hex tile and black grout from Floor and Decor, and the black travertine slabs for the half wall, the niche, and the curb from the Tile Shop.
shower panel from Wayfair. The chrome finish of the sprayers definitely isn't my favorite, but the price, ease of installation, and function won me over. I love that we'll be able to set a temperature with the digital thermostat and never have to fiddle with getting the hot/cold mix just right. Since this bathroom had no space for a tub, it was important to me to get as close to feeling submerged in boiling water as possible. Come quickly, Saturday! Mama has a crick in her neck.
I really appreciate all the kind feedback we've gotten on this room. We poured ourselves into it, and hearing everyone's encouragement feels great.
Thanks for following along!
