It's a Renovation-off! #HalfBathChallenge

That's right! A Renovation-off! 

Lindsey from Building Bluebird and I are taking on our half baths. They are both sorely in need of an update. For a full rundown of what Lindsey has planned, check out her post here.

I think it's kind of funny...we both have the strip of vanity lights and an orange oak vanity. We even have similar ideas on how we'll renovate. I'll be sharing my plans next Tuesday.

Anywho...want to hear our self-determined rules? 

1. This is a 4 week challenge. Kicking off today with a reveal on March 7th

2. Lindsey is trying to keep a $200 Budget. I have tiling to do so i'm aiming for a $300 budget.

and....that's it! We'll be keeping you abreast of project progress every Tuesday until the reveal. 

Part one of the challenge...


I've got a classic orange oaky cabinet that will need a face lift. The countertop has to leave immediately- the laminate with wood strip accent isn't my favorite. 

I found new lighting I think will look perfect in this space. The vanity lights have numbered days.

I don't know what I should do above the toilet wall. I'm tossing around a couple ideas.

I'm most excited to spruce up the floors. Ever since finishing our wood floors 9 months ago, this floor has been a real eye sore. It's not level to the wood floors, the laminate is peeling, and it's the color of dirty dishwater. We can do so much better.

I'm excited to have a deadline to work towards. I hope it will make decisions happen faster and we'll be one more project closer to first floor completion!
