ORC 3a: Progress Report

At the very last minute, I decided to make over our main bathroom downstairs.

Here are all the posts in the series, so far:

ORC 2: Jumping In, Reluctantly
ORC 2a: Evaluating the Bathroom
ORC 3: Using Inspiration to Solve a Bathroom Design Dilemma


It's taken me a long time to find a direction--but I finally have it!

Here's one of my inspiration pics:



Here's where we're at:


The ceiling panels have been removed and they are being painted in the basement.


At the suggestion of one of my long-time readers, I decided to take down the tile over the sink. I still like it: but it has had its day.

I love the clean bare expanse above the sink! 


I've chosen some new sheet vinyl for the floor. Quite excited about that.

I've also picked out and purchased a new light fixture. I looked at a gazillion--and discovered that lighting, for me, is the "starter" piece. I think this will create an elegant tone. 

from Lowe's by Bel-Air Lighting. I will be installing it shades down.


 But I am chewing my lip about getting the old one out.

How hard could it have been to center that fan? 


I would be freaking out--I still have the fabric for the window to pick out--and to sew. We have yet to purchase the vertical boards for our wainscoting...let alone install everything.  I am still trying to decide whether to replace the faucet set or not--and I definitely want to do something about the drain pipes under the sink! And, of course, we still need a toilet--and a new fan. 

But I know how these things go. It will be all very last minute and rush rush rush but it'll all work out.

Oh--and I nearly forgot--I want to do something with the frame round the mirror.

Dear Lord. OK. So maybe I am freaking just a little. 

Do see what the other Guest participants are doing, here. There are some great projects in the works!

Don't stress yourself out due to the challenge - you will get it done in whatever time it takes you.

And I know it will look lovely - pretty, classic choices.

Thanks, t! Very classic choices. I'd like to shake it up a little!
