Our main bathroom has come a long way than what it used to be but it is still not quite what to what I imagined. We are already in week 5 of the ORC Challenge, and while I would like to admit that I got it all together, I don’t. When I decided to do the challenge, I figured that I already had a head start since we were in the process of redoing the bathroom. But I am here to tell you, head start or not, I am still trying to figure out a few smaller things for this bathroom.
But on a good note, most of the bigger problems we intended to fix is already completed. The lighting is already making all the difference and we have installed these medicine cabinets.
We bought these for a very reasonable price at Home Depot and again chose white to brighten up the space. Too much white? Nope! We like it!! And we decided to place one cabinet over each sink rather than one large one like we had previously.
Medicine cabinets are out of style you may say. Maybe so. Or maybe not. But we have a good reason for choosing cabinets over just mirrors.
One of our reasons being that we wanted a place to store daily cosmetics and so forth. Our vanity has no drawers as you may have noticed in the first photo above. And I prefer not to have a cluttered sink with all kinds of skin, hair, and body care gracing us when we enter the bathroom. Having the medicine cabinets gives us some place to organize our daily stuff without the clutter.
I have been busy trying to figure out the placement of the items in there since the spacing within the shelves are not very tall. But hey, now we have more sink and bathroom closet space. We can hide some of the items that occupied said spaces in the cabinets. Pretty organization, easy access.
I have also being busy organizing the cabinet under the vanity. About the vanity, our original intent was to leave it “as is”. But there is some talk about painting the exterior. We’ll see. It is not a huge complicated vanity (image above) so painting should be easy.
And as far as decorating the bathroom goes, I am currently experience a dilemma. I picked up these few pieces at Walmart (hey, no point in pretending)! But I am wondering if a different color would be best. I did a Mood Board as to what I wanted it to look like here. But now I am reconsidering colors.
My next dilemma is the wall above the toilet seat. I am debating whether I want to add a floating shelf, a large photo, two smaller photos, or a sign. I have to admit that my bathroom decorating struggle is real:)
So there you have it for week 5 of the ORC. We have come a long way, though. And those weeks surely flew by quickly. Week 6 is the big reveal and I have begun to tell myself that there is no point in choosing pieces that we do not love for the bathroom. We will show what we have even if it means we have to finish some things afterwards.
