I wanted to keep this post short and sweet so on to our guest bathroom renovation! Here are the before photos:
|Look at those popcorn ceilings!|
See? Not too bad. Definitely livable. Just dated. Lots of cream fixtures. I envisioned brightening this space up and making the tiny whole in the wall seem somehow a bit bigger. Here are the afters:
So refreshing right? We have a tiny bit of touch up caulking to do, but this bathroom is DONE. I think Justin was a little nervous about all the white initially, but bringing in lots of wood tones can really warm a room right up. I think it is such a bright and inviting space now.
Funny story, as soon as we get back from our trip I'm moving in! I think Justin is secretly happy to see me go. I posted this on FB a couple of weeks ago but I don't think I really tricked anyone. They must know that I'd be a hot mess without Justin. He's stuck with me! :p
Justin did such a great job on all of the bigger construction pieces. The little shower shelf might be my favorite part of the whole bathroom. Seriously so adorable. His talent kills me.
This bathroom could have been done for cheaper. But I found this vanity that I just had to have, and then I found a light fixture I had to have, and the list goes on and on. Don't be like me. Save your money. This bathroom cost us almost as much as our kitchen renovation and I ain't real proud of that. Although I do love how it turned out, I fell off the budget train on this one.
Also, I'm cringing a little about the mirror. Do you know what keeps me up at night? Mirrors. I have tossed and turned for a month because of this dang mirror. It isn't exactly what I envisioned for the space but after buying and returning 4 mirrors for various reasons, I'm calling this good enough until I find the one. I like my mirrors like I like my men. Round and rustic. Ok my jokes need work. I'm running on a couple hours of sleep at this point. :p
Light Fixture: Shades of Light
Floor tile: Lowe's
Shower tile: Lowe's (THE WORST PART OF THE WHOLE PROJECT!!! I never want to see another subway tile again. Ever)
Mirror:It's a get me by mirror from Target until I find "the one"
Wood Planked Wall: We used 6 sheets of sanded quarter inch primed plywood cut into 6inch strips which came out to be around $100. (NOTE: We used plywood instead of regular shiplap because we wanted a cleaner look. Shiplap is much more rustic as we found out from the accent wall we did in our bedroom)
Kohler faucets for vanity and shower: Lowes
Letters & Hooks: Various Homegoods
So who wants to come visit and use our new bathroom?!? What's your favorite part?
