Converting a Closet into a Shower! – ORC Week 3


Converting a Closet into a Shower! – ORC Week 3

In the fall of 2015, I joined almost 200 Designers/Bloggers in the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling It Home where we have 6 weeks to transform a room of our choice from boring to stunning! I picked our Master Bedroom & En-suite because it was, quite frankly, dated,boring and I so desperately wanted a change.  But at week 4, I ran into a major set-back with our popcorn ceiling which left me with no choice but to switch to another room for the remainder of the challenge. Was I discouraged?  Yes!  Defeated?  No!!!  I’m back in the spring of 2o16 and transforming our Master Bedroom again! BUT this time, I added our en-suite into the mix.  Why not???

This week, week 3 into our challenge, I will focus on our ensuite.  We did both the bedroom and en-suite renovations at the same time (NOT recommended)!

When was the last time you saw a mustard yellow toilet and sink? Exactly!!! Don’t get me wrong, I like the color mustard yellow but for bathroom fixtures, it’s got to go!!!
Master Ensuite Makeover















It’s embarassing how long we actually lived with our en-suite with yellow fixtures.  The master bedroom & en-suite should be on the top 5 rooms to renovate/decorate because it’s your retreat.  Your get-away from it all.  But in our case, it’s one of the rooms noone sees, so it was last on the priority list.

And the wall comes tumbling down….

Bang!  The removal of the wall changes everything!  It really opens up the space and makes a teeny tiny bathroom a little bit bigger!

    I’d like to see the rest of the reno of the bathroom. I want to do a similar project in my master 1/2 en-suite

    Good luck getting all of that finished! It’s truly amazing how much we let the spaces that should matter most slide. can’t wait to see it finished! Thanks for sharing at The Creative Circle!

    I can’t wait to see what you’ll do next, this is exciting! I agree, you know, I think the same way, the ensuite bathroom is hidden away, no one sees it , except me and I can do without having a fancy one…but you’re right, it’s for yourself and should be seen as a retreat to enjoy!
