Welcome back to the week 5 update for the One Room Challenge. Check out the blog posts and updates for week 1, week 2, week 3, and week 4 if you missed them. It’s crunch time now and I’ll be honest… I don’t know that this project will be completely wrapped up for the reveal date. The great thing is the reveal and hitting a deadline is not the only goal of reason for this challenge. Ultimately having a fully functional and hopefully beautiful bathroom is where we want to end up even it things are a bit delayed.

When we left off last time the countertops had been templated, the trim was freshly painted and the hardware had been ordered. The hardware took about 1 week to arrive. We chose the Menlo Park 4″ pull from Schlub in chrome because I think the pull has the perfect mix of square and some rounded elements that make it a great transitional hardware option. We went with all pulls for the drawers and doors since the knob option in that line weren’t our favorite.
The quartz countertops were installed on Tuesday May 2nd, one week after they fabricator came to template the vanity. Rectangle, undercount sinks were also purchased through the fabricator. The Marble look quartz from Pental (it’s Misterio) is gorgeous with the warm gray veins running throughout. For the edge went for a flat polish eased edge for a clean, simple look.
Two days after the quartz countertops were installed the tile installer came back to finish up tiling the niches, installing the tile base and grout everything.
The last few things to do are find a mirror (hoping for wood-framed which limits the options a ton!) and move the electrical to the right height so the vanity light can be installed. We’re also waiting on the plumber to come back and install all of the plumbing fixtures. Hopefully that will have this upcoming week, but there’s no guarantee. Plus adding all the finishing touches 🙂 I’ll be back at some point to share the reveal and how everything turned out. Whether that’s a week or two, who knows!
