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!

Add Value to Your Home with Debi CollinsonI’m Debi Collinson. Designer. Stager. Real Estate Investor. In 2006, at the request of a realtor, I staged my very first home. Staging houses was just starting to become popular. I was very nervous staging my first house, but the sellers liked their newly redesigned home so much that they turned down an offer for full asking price. I went back to design school and have never looked back. Since 2006, I have been staging & styling spaces to make them look like they belong in a magazine page, and buying “fixer uppers” to fix up & either sell for a healthy profit or to rent them out. I’m currently living in my 8th “fixer upper.” Sign up to receive my e-mails of how to make your home stunning, how to sell your house for top dollar AND how to become financially independent one fixer upper at a time!

  1. 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!
