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, 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.


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

A new area rug from Ross hides a bit that not so pretty floor.


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



 My very own fabric piece of art beneath the window.





The before and afters:





My kids are loving their new bathroom, so far they have kept it clean, lets hope for that to continue :)

I LOVE it! The changes you made were all high impact things! It is beautiful. Love the wall.. I think that is my favorite part. Well, and the tub facing. I may have to steal that. It is so nice, with a pop of color and a happy feeling!

Sigh... a girl after my own heart.

LOVIN' it!

Lovin' the color --- the creativity --- the artwork --- the efficiency of price vs. effect.

YOU GO GIRL!

This is very creative! I've pinned the shelves because that is the most genius (imo). I really like what you did just taking off the doors of the vanity - makes such a big change. Good job!

natalia said...

Oh wow that's incredible! My absolute favorite part has got to be the orange shelves behind the door, genius! This gives me hope that you can redo a bathroom simply and still have it be fabulous!

Kristina @ ReMadeSimple said...

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 :)

Erin said...

Wow, the power of paint! Plus your brilliance and skills of course. This is gorgeous. The pop of color from the shelves is my favorite,

Britni @ Hubby Made Me said...

Gorgeous!! I'm in love with the orange shelf!! The pop of color is so pretty. And of course the stenciled wall is just amazing!! I would love it if you stopped by and linked up to my Throwback Thursday party {goes through Sunday night}! http://www.hubbymademe.com/throwback-thursday-no-2/

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

I really like your vanity with all the open-ness! The entire room is awesome!

Anonymous said...

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

Cristina Garay said...

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

kristin maynes said...

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

Lauren said...

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

Cristina Garay said...

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! :(

Katja @ Shift Ctrl ART said...

Such a beautiful transformation! Love it all!

❤ Mrs. Sinyan ❤ said...

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!!!

Jeannie and Linda said...

Christina! Wow is all I can say! Wow!

We are joining your lovely blog. Glad we found you! Please check us out.
