  • Fall One Room Challenge: Week 6

    House of Brinson One Room Challenge Bathroom

    We completed the One Room Challenge and went through renovation craziness to get to this day! If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you know all the twists and turns as we raced through a bathroom renovation in 6 weeks. Below, for your viewing pleasure, are all the ‘after’ images, all the sources and how much we spent. Yes, I’m disclosing our finances.

    She dreamed up this wall inspired by cameos. A little vintage and classical but very modern.

    I have to say, Instagram friends, you surprised me when we went hunting for a cabinet. I got really lucky and found a cabinet for a great deal after visiting several shops along the Hudson River. If you missed the whole saga, see ‘HV Antiquing’ on our Instagram profile. At the end of the day, I told you I found the perfect cabinet for $380.00. It was a bit beat up, but I hit it with my furniture restoration kit and the cabinet took on a new life. Then I painted the inside and put a Gracie panel in the back, only after I lined the drawers. I was surprised how into the budgeting process everyone was. I am a big believer you can get amazing vintage furniture for good prices, if you take the time to hunt for it. And if you take the time to restore it. While I went completely over the top with this cabinet, it will serve as downstairs storage for a variety of house hold goods. I would say with all the work, I put about 15 hours of my time working on the cabinet.

    A lot of the products for the One Room Challenge are sponsored, so I marked each one (*) for full transparency (we don’t put product in our home we wouldn’t purchase). Two of my largest splurge areas were sponsored, our floor (New Ravenna)  and bathroom fixtures (Perrin and Rowe). When planning a renovation from a financial point of view, those two areas are ones I dedicate a lot of budget to. You keep them for a long time! They should last a lifetime.

    I’m relieved the bathroom is completed! When we have company, we don’t have to send them into a bathroom you might not want to use. Plus, we have much needed storage for categories that always floated around the house. For instance, how many places could I store my vases? They used to sit on our kitchen island. And simple things like Advil and tissues were always floating around or we were running up and down stairs for these things. All these observations coming from an apartment dweller. Multiple levels in a house is hard to comprehend when you spent your entire adult life in an apartment. I also consolidated my hoarder level candle collection.

    Bathroom Hardware and Toilet

    All our items are in unlacquered brass (meaning they will age darker over time). We’re using nickel in another bathroom. Perrin and Rowe (via Rohl) has multiple finish options.

    All door hardware from Emtek in unlacquered brass. You can change the knob styles and finish colors for different combinations.

    • Ron Nicole, floral fossils I highly suggest getting on the Ron Nicole mailing list if you want collection notifications. They sell out fast!
    • All other art, vintage

    Curtains

    Antique Reproduction Hardware

    Our whole house will eventually have unlacqured brass light switch plates. We’re going room-by-room and use House of Antique Hardware as a resource. 

    What we spent our dollars on

    Our total out of pocket for this project were $6,251.53. We spent a decent amount on plumbing because we moved a toilet and had a big leak in the basement. So this was way more expensive than planned. 

    Much of the product for this project was sponsored as part of the One Room Challenge (brands participate and 20 design blogger make over a room). We are very particular about gifted product because… it’s in our house! We make sure it’s something we would buy.
