Guest Bathroom: One Room Challenge Fall 2018

Happy Thursday friends! 
If you are new to my blog, welcome, I'm glad you are here!
So, it's that time again... the fall One Room Challenge...
   The One Room Challenge design event is a bi-annual 6 week challenge to makeover a space in your home. Twenty designers are chosen to participate and every Wednesday, the designers document their process while sharing their sources and professional advice over the six weekly posts. In addition to following along, everyone with a blog, is welcome to join the fun as a Guest Participant and will post their results the following Thursday for the next 6 weeks. 
This will be my 4th ORC, you can find my other ORC projects here
So for this ORC I will be making over our downstairs guest bath.
It's right by our sons nursery, so I want to tie in the bathroom with his nursery and design it to grow with him, while being nice for everyone else as well.
Here is how it currently looks.
I know what you're thinking, not bad right? Well this bathroom has been done over a couple of times and as they say, hopefully the third time's the charm.
You can read about this DIY makeover here, and how I painted everything... and I mean EVERYTHING...
This pic below is how I spruced it up the first time and you can read about that here...
So What am I going to do now?
Well for starters I am going to repaint the tile floor, my dog sometimes, goes to the bathroom... in the bathroom and she literally peeled up the Annie Sloan chalk paint... my next post will be about painted floors and my experience... so look for that on week two.

Next I'm going to wood the ceiling to match my son's nursery.
Then I am going to fix the ship lap and continue it 
over to all the walls in the bathroom and paint it all white.

Then a new vanity, light fixture and I'm going to get rid of the curtain and put up a frameless glass door. I love glass doors and I am getting to the point where I hate shower curtains.
So I'm super excited about that feature.
Lastly, some new decor and hardware.

So here's the list... in list form

1. Paint/fix floor
2. Wood Ceiling
3. Shiplap/Paint
4. New light fixture
5. Glass door for tub
6. New Vanity
7. New Hardware/Decor

So luckily for me, it's not a super huge list... I have had much larger.
I'm hoping I can pull this off, I signed up for this before I started opening my shop, so all my time and energy is going towards working on my store and inventory... but I love a good challenge. I figure even if I don't get it done, at least I will be that much closer!
You can read about my new shop coming soon here.
