Final Reveal – The Bathroom Makeover – One Room Challenge

It’s Week 6 of the One Room Challenge which means ding, ding, ding, times up! Words can’t even express how excited I am about the bathroom makeover. I mean wow! The transformation is crazy, and I honestly can’t believe I live here. It’s wacky and crazy and out there and pretty much describes exactly what happens in my brain. Like if you were a really tiny person and crawled into my ear to have a look around, I would imagine this is exactly what you’d see. Are you prepared for this? Put yo’ pinky rings up to the moon. Whoop, whoop!

An antique dresser was converted into a bathroom vanity. I love the eclectic wallpaper by House Of Hackney - Empire Midnight. I love the Clé Tile Cubicon cement tiles on the floor paired with white subway tile.

The goal for this bathroom was if you are a guest in my house and in the need of the lavatory, you will walked in here and forget to pee. Gerry my man, you did one hell of a job. Seriously, you brought everything that was in my head to life. If you live in the Chicago area and are in need of an amazing contractor, give this guy a buzz…and no he’s not paying me to say this. He just did an amazing job for one of the toughest clients on the planet…me.

In Week 4, I left you with a cliff hanger…the excitement in the air was electric. Renee was here hanging the first few panels of wallpaper, and I couldn’t help but share the, “Oh my God I can’t believe I live here!” moment with you. Once those panels went up the whole space just transformed. Even The Boy’s mouth was on the floor…and it takes a lot to impress him.
