The Big Bathroom Reveal

August 9, 2011

Finally...the bathroom is done! Well, it's been done for a while now....we just needed to do minor stuff like hang mirrors and pick out a shower head. I'm so excited to finally share it with you. We are so happy with how it turned out!

Photobucket
First let's take a look at what it looked like before we began. I like to call it builder boring.  

Photobucket
And the shower was awful. The husband had to duck in order to get in or out. And the paint was fading big time. 

 And after. The whole bathroom looks bigger and brighter now (much needed since it doesn't have a window).


Photobucket
We painted the cabinets white and I am so happy with them.

Photobucket
My vintage mason jars matched perfectly in here. They now hold q-tips and cotton balls.

Photobucket
I love that we each have our own mirror now. However, I didn't realize that by lowering the mirror a few inches that the husband would be too tall to see his entire face in the mirror. Oops! Luckily he doesn't mind.

Photobucket
My favorite part of the bathroom is the new shower. We went with white subway tile up to the ceiling and a marble floor. The marble is the same pattern as the floor, just smaller.

Photobucket
I am also in love with the European glass shower door. Totally worth the splurge. It feels like a spa in there now.

Photobucket
Here you can see the floor a little bit. The shower is hiding behind the bathroom door, and the toilet is to the left of the shower. The paint for the walls was Sherwin Williams "Watery". And do you like my home-made artwork above the towels? It's just a frame with fabric and wooden letters of "you" and "me". I plan to add an "&" as soon as I find one that's the right size. The husband doesn't get it, so it might not last too long there. Oh well.

Photobucket
And just too keep it real, this is what my pretty roses looked liked within minutes of snapping these photos.

Photobucket
The culprit...Henry trying not to look guilty.

  13. It looks fantastic! I love it. So calm and serene - just like a spa. I have to confess to being partial to the wall color as a very similar color is on our bedroom walls and found throughout our living room. :)

    Great job! Enjoy your awesome new bath!

  26. It came out gorgeous!! Our bathroom re-do was VERY similar. In fact, I think we have the same mirrors. Good news for your husband - there should be a metal dodad (for lack of a better term) on the back near the bottom. You can actually reach under and flip it out a bit. it gives the mirror a tiny angle and will allow him to see the top of his head! I had the same issue with ours :)
