Bathroom Makeover

There were still some final details that I needed to take care of in this little bath. but I couldn't hold it any longer, so here is the bathroom reveal!

Remember, this wasn't a..."I'm going to change everything" kind of thing. It was a cheap makeover. Same vanity, bathroom faucet, counter, mirror, bathtub... The change came with paint, accessories and a little bit of doing this and that ;)

I just want you to see the before pics before showing you the changes.

The old oak messy vanity   ...   
                      white plain bathtub...
                                       yellow paint...
I began working on the vanity, you can read everything about it HERE.

Then my attention then, went to the bathtub, no more plain Jane! I built a paneled cover to take care of that problem. For the how to, click HERE.

The curtain rod was changed for a curved one, now the shower feels more spacious. A shampoo rack helps keep the tub area clutter free!

The walls were painted the same gray color I've been using around the house, Sherwin Williams Requisite Gray - Flat.  

But not happy by simply painting the wall, I created this design to proved my patience. I now know, that yes, it was all worth it!  Check HERE to find out the how to.

Later on a shelf was created to utilize the space behind the door with storage and decorative accents.  HERE.

I still need to tell you about framing the mirror, creating the art, and changing the towel bar, that will be next time for now here are the pictures:

The Light fixture was also changed.
good smelling soaps for bath

I love how nice the bathroom smells with so many soaps around!

Some new accessories changed the mood completely. I found the blue pail holding the toothbrushes at Michael's.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This is so impressive! I love the colors you chose, your stencil and the paneled bathtub cover-I've never seen anything like that-I'm in the middle of my bath makeover right now and plan on using some of those pops of orange-and have the same stencil too. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration :)

  39. Did you have to do anything special to the cabinet before you painted it? It looks beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thank you so much, everyone! Anonymous, I didn't do anything special, first it was primed and then two coats of paint were applied, as I did with the kitchen cabinets here: http://www.remodelandolacasa.com/2012/01/painting-kitchen-cabinets.html

    ReplyDelete
  41. Fabulous! I love tub and the cabinet....well done!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Where did you get your "shampoo rack?" I've been looking for one to go over the towel rack in the tub.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lauren, That rack is an over-the-door storage solution I found at Bed, Bath and Beyond. It didn't work that well for my kids, too high for them to reach those bottles, and just yesterday I saw little bits of rust on it! :(

    ReplyDelete
  44. Such a beautiful transformation! Love it all!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanks for your comment over on my blog!! I appreciate it so much, especially coming from you!! I love your blog, it is my greatest inspiration. And actually my bathroom redo was going to include the frame for the tub, but I had a really hard time figuring out how to get this started. My tub has a funky curve to it, can you assist me with that? Thanks in advance!!!
