It’s here!! The moment you’ve been waiting for (if you’ve been following along)… the bathroom is 100% done- barely in time for the One Room Challenge reveal. I shot the space hours ago and somehow managed to pull together a post after a fiasco with the artwork. All is well and I couldn’t be more pleased with how this tiny space turned out. Click through for the complete reveal and all the details!
In case you missed the past six weeks, no worries… catch up on the process here: Week 1 (before images and the design plan) // Week 2 (demo and prep) // Week 3 (tile) // Week 4 (bathtub resurfacing and electrical) // Week 5 (paint and hardware) // Week 6 (accessories)
To start, I’ll give you a little refresh of what the space looked like before we renovated.
Quite the difference, right? It’s amazing what the correct size vanity and new tile / fixtures will do to a space. It looks SO much larger thanks to some design tricks I implemented. The black ceiling and ceiling-mounted shower curtain worked just as I had hoped to elongate the room.
It’s difficult to nail down my favorite thing in the space… from the tile, artwork, plumbing fixtures, and even the accessories, this is one of those rooms where everything just seemed to work well together.
I truly love showering here now. I know that sounds weird, but I’ll stand in my shower and smile because of all that goodness that is happening around me. The beautiful marble, the industrial shower trim, and even my little fern that sits in front of our new black window (he likes humidity, so this is his permanent home) makes me so happy.
I’m also really glad we landed on contrast tile for the back of the shower niche. The smaller herringbone pattern is a nice detail that gives our shower storage some dimension. Clearly I have a Davines product addiction. Shoutout to my hair stylist (hey, Amber!!) who has me hooked. In all seriousness, they look great against that tile.
Even though the space is small, I wanted it to have plenty of personality. Between the storage vanity, amazing floor tile, and new artwork- I’m hoping that shows, and I achieved my goal of giving this bath some pizazz.
The nude ladies are insanely gorgeous in person and totally worth the hassle and shipping mix up I had to endure. I teamed up with my bf, Laurie Anne (the artist behind these beauties), and gave her free reign to create whatever she wanted. Obviously I wasn’t disappointed! Framebridge also did a fantastic job framing them.
Spoiler alert… you can win some of these nudes for yourself on Monday! I’m following through with the fun bath giveaway I promised, and Laurie Anne agreed to throw some of the limited edition nudes into the mix.
Obviously storage was a big concern with this project… this tiny bathroom really needed to be super functional because it’s the one and only bathroom in our home. We store lots items in baskets below the vanity, as well as inside the vanity.
The lower two “drawers” aren’t actually drawers at all… they hinge downward revealing a giant storage space inside the vanity. I keep my cosmetics, extra toilet paper, and other toiletries in this compartment.
We also have a medicine cabinet. Yep! That’s not just a mirror… it’s a pretty sizable medicine cabinet where we keep our toothbrushes, deodorant, medicine (obviously), and other necessities we use on the daily. Here’s a tiny peek inside… it’s mirrored, which also eludes to more space.
In addition to closed storage, we also needed a couple places to hang towels. We installed two minimal towel bars on the opposite side of the room, which have proven to be really functional. We no longer have to hang them on our closet door knobs (super exciting stuff).
There’s also a robe hook on the backside of the door. It’s little details like these that make small space living a lot easier.

If you have any questions at all, let me know. I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments below! For my first One Room Challenge, I’d say it went pretty well. Honestly the most stressful day was today. Ha! I’m hoping next time around I’l have learned my lesson. Thanks for sticking with this series and for your words of encouragement. They mean so much! I should also send a giant thank you to Linda at Calling it Home for organizing this entire shindig. It’s been fun and inspiring.
