One Room Challenge: Week 3

I can't believe it's already week three of the One Room Challenge! In case you are new here, I am in the middle of redesigning my powder room. You can check out weeks one and two here. 

During week one I introduced to you my room and laid out a loose design plan. Last week I shared that I had removed the ceiling texture and decided to go with a beautiful grasscloth on the walls. This week, instead of crossing something major off my long to do list, I decided to add to it. I realize that we are already in week three of a six week challenge, but I just couldn't resist making the challenge more difficult. ;)

The original builder of our house added a trim piece below the crown molding in our dining room (AKA: John's office) to make it appear more substantial. We had the exact same trim left over from a previous project so I decided to mimic the same look in the bathroom. Here are a few pictures to give you a better idea of what I'm talking about.

Here are a few progress shots of the trim in the bathroom.



Please tell me the first thing you noticed about these pictures was my super smooth ceiling!!


This is what the trim looks like now after two coats of primer. 



This is a sneak peek of some of the things I have been working on for the powder room: tassles, woven bamboo, artwork made by my little man, and of course painting my mirror. Can you guess what I am going to use the bamboo and tassels for??



I still have to paint the trim and install the gorgeous wallpaper and I'm hoping to get that done before next week's update. I would be lying if I said I wasn't totally intimidated by the idea of installing the grasscloth myself...wish me luck!!


Don't forget to stop by and check out the progress of all of these fabulous designs! You can check out all of the other linking participants here. I know I'll be spending a significant amount of time sitting at my computer checking all of these bad boys out this weekend; these ladies are seriously talented!!

  1. Genius idea for beefing up the trim. I am stealing that idea and running all the home with glee. Good luck with the wallpaper install. Ceilings look great - I need a tutorial on that pronto stat, m'kay?!

  2. I was just talking to my hubby about doing that to our walls that a few days ago. Looks so good And what smooth ceilings you have. I am jealous as we have the dreaded popcorn everywhere. I have never installed wallpaper before so I will be checking back next week, hopefully you will have some tips for us! Good luck and can't wait to see the walls!

  7. Looking great! I'd be intimidated to hang wallpaper myself too. But, it'll look sooo good once it's done.

  13. Trim makes all the difference and you are way braver than me. I'm calling in the pros for my paper installation. Thinking the tassels might go on the cabinet hardware? Or maybe somehow on the light fixture? I'm so curious about that!!

  14. Autumn over at design dump installed some grass cloth paper in her hallway, and had some great tips -- you might want to search her blog and take a look . . . .
