Oh my goodness. This week of the One Room Challenge always instills panic within me. I feel like I am not going to finish on time. Stress is running high.
But we did get quite a bit accomplished this past week.
Much to the probable dismay of those who expressed their love for it I removed the wine rack from the ceiling. The wine vine wallpaper border was also removed and revealed… yet another wallpaper border that I would have to spend 3 hours taking down. #%@&!
The too small on one side black mirror frame was also furiously yanked down.
Then the bathroom walls received two coats of Gustavian Blue by Ralph Lauren and breathed a sigh of relief. This step in all likelyhood should have been saved for next week but… *
Mr. Decor next removed the huge, gross, water sucking, elongated toilet.
Then he ripped up the ugly, peeling linoleium and laid down tile.
This was topped off by a new, smaller toilet that is a much better size for the small space.

Now some of you wanted to know why we were replacing the sink.
(The yellow blotch on the upper left hand side of the backsplash is permanent.)
I’m sure at one time the sink was white. Now it is sadly a yellow beige.
The new paint job only accentuate this fact.
No amount of scrubbing can get it clean and there are numerous cigarette burn marks.
(We are not smokers.)
So, it’s a good decision to replace the sink, yes?
In week 4 we will be trying to:
Remove the old sink top.
Carefully remove the old mirror.
*Patch all the bad walls and paint them Gustavian Blue.
Hang a new mirror.
Paint the vanity Club Navy by Ralph Lauren.
Select new hardware for the vanity.
Install the new sink.
Install the new faucet, bathroom tissue holder and hand towel bar.
Create a white Roman window shade.
Select and hang artwork
Did I mention that all of this will occur at the same time as my college finals?
I think I can.
