Well, we did it! We have a beautiful new bathroom with some amazing features and we pulled it off in a couple of weeks. It was hard work but so worth it!
I'm still shopping for a couple of things (like a narrow tray for soap, etc) but I'm in no hurry. I'll wait for the right pieces.
Let's start with some before pictures. After all, we've come a long way, baby!
Here's how it looked when we bought it 3 years ago:
Oh my! The pink and lace had to go! After a thorough cleaning and removal of wallpaper, everything got a fresh coat of paint. Here's what it looked like afterwards and before we redid everything:
This wasn't bad but we didn't like the vanity or the tub. And that is what prompted the new makeover.
So let's see how it ended up. Enjoy!
Love the detail tile. It adds that wow.
Can I just say I'm not missing the old tub one bit? I love my new shower!
The floor tile:
This is seriously one of my favorite features of the whole room. I love how it looks like real rustic wood but since it's tile, there are no worries about moisture.
The buffet turned vanity:
What can I say? I love this piece. Even though I ended up repainting it because of a mishap with the polyurethane, let me just say it was a happy mishap. I truly think if the piece had been left white, it would have lacked the visual punch the new color gave it. This is truly my most favorite feature in the whole room. It had been a little neglected but now has a new lease on life.
I painted all the woodwork white, getting rid of the few areas that had been stained. Now it all looks clean and cohesive.
Repainted the shelves in the floor unit with the vanity paint- that got rid of the scratches in the previous finish and tied it in to the vanity. I'm going to Canton to get more of the wire baskets for the shelves. They are the perfect size and will corral the supplies I keep there.
White shower curtain and window curtains - made from inexpensive white sheets. A perfect way to get a lot of material for a small price. The white really adds to a spa feel.

The Scrabble letters,
Red metal truck,
Old tin ceiling tiles,
They look amazing with the vanity!
I recovered my little stool and repainted it in ASCP Coco:
I also made a small sign to hang above the bathroom door in the hallway:
We are so pleased with the results. It is definitely all I imagined - only better. I think Bruce did an amazing job with it all. We couldn't love it more!
Do you have a favorite?
Happy week to you!
