Behind the scenes of a collaborative client project: full bathroom reno

DIY projects and renovations can be hard--on your body, your energy levels, your wallet, your relationship with your partner... so when I did my most recent project, this bathroom reno, I was excited that it wasn't at my house or draining my budget! But, I was working closely with my friends so there was a different dynamic. I was the designer, the tile layer/instructor, the schedule-driver... (and I was blogging about the project and wanted a great result! But, the most important thing was our friendship at the end.)

It was also my first time working with a team including clients and a contractor, and I learned a lot over the course of the 6-week reno! I'm dishing this week...
From the reveal post

This week on the Your Home Story podcast Ashley interviews me about the project--including completely renovating the bathroom (from dated, tired space to midcentury-inspired dream room), what went wrong, what set us behind schedule, why it can be so hard to make decisions like about plumbing and hardware, styling tips, and more! I also talked about adding my personal style through styling, while getting the black-brass-medium wood MCM look my clients loved.

Links to some posts we talked about:
  1. The Modern Bathroom Reveal for the One Room Challenge.
  2. All the before pictures of the bathroom including the rubber baseboards, colored tub, and interesting vintage sink!
  3. My bathroom Pinterest board where I looked for styling inspo.
