Whew! Demo is totally kicking our butts right now over here at Project Jenjamin, but that’s not going to stop us from sharing 5 wonderful things with you this Friday. As we go through the One Room Challenge, we want to share different ORC-related FoF’s with you, so up first are the DIY-ers that inspired us to take on this bathroom challenge. Enjoy reading this while hopefully not covered in dust and cursing the name of the people who installed hardibacker with nails..
Some of the O.G.’s of DIY renovations- John and Sherry Petersik, give us a lot of hope as unexperienced plumbing and tiling folks that we can take on a bathroom challenge and come out the other side mostly unscathed. Their DIY tips are helpful as always, and it’s incredibly inspiring to see such a big change happen on a very conscious budget.
Katie Bower did a gorgeous renovation of her guest bath with a little help from Home Depot. Katie’s pretty much a tiling pro, so she’s serving up some really great tips with this bathroom project.
Stefanie was working with a truly scary before in this guest bathroom, but some new finishes went a LONG way in making it into such a beautiful space. We love her resourcefulness in salvaging wall tiles to use in the kitchen, and respraying the existing sink and claw foot tub.
Victoria Elizabeth Barnes is one of our absolute favorites to read- there is just no one like her, and her undying love of acquiring all the Giant Fancy Things (aka GFTs). Nobody considers details quite like V.E.B. and that may be why her bathroom renovation took “nine times longer” than it should have, but boy those details sure turned into something beautiful.
Jenna Sue is a DIY-all star, y’all. Her incredible work in the Spring 2015 One Room Challenge is one of the most Pinned rooms I’ve ever seen, and with good reason. The big changes (THAT TILE!) were stunning, but we love how she incorporated several very doable DIYs that really made this bathroom so special. One of the best room transformations we have ever seen.
We’ll see you next week with demo tales for our own One Room Challenge, as well as a Five on Friday focused on some great inspiration for our Modern Nautical look.
Have a wonderful weekend!
