It’s finally done! I have completed the FIRST room in the house, the guest bathroom, which is also my bathroom since the master (or Ryan’s bathroom) is so small. Well, for now it’s completed. I have secret plans to replace the grout in the shower and frame out the mirrors, but for now, this room is DONE! And it’s the only one in the house I can say that about. (The kitchen/dining room are in a close second, which will hopefully change this weekend or next week.) So here is the reveal. This first set of pictures shows the progression from ugly to pretty. We had the countertops reglazed, painted the cabinets and then the walls got a new color.
And now for the details. (I know I say this every time, but this bathroom has no natural light and I have like 2 feet to work with, so the pictures might be dark and awkward.) This is the view from the hallway. The toilet sits to the left of the shower and the vanity is in front of the toilet. You can barely see it, but there are built in storage cabinets on the left wall right when you walk in.
The image on the left is the storage from the hallway, but it gives you an idea of what the before on these cabinets looked like. Yellow, dingy and rockin’ the gross detailed handles. The two images on the right show the pretty, new white cabinets with sleek chrome knobs.
This shot helps give you an idea of the layout. There is about 3 feet between the vanity and the shower/toilet side, so you can understand while all these shots are so tight in.
I love the new paint color on the walls. So much lighter and airier!
And just to keep it real, yes I use a bright blue tooth brush and don’t hide it from the guests.
I used to have a cross collection on a wall in my apartment, but now the crosses are scattered throughout the house. I love this one!
These images were on sale at Hobby Lobby for $4.99 each and I bought dark brown frames to match the cabinet color.
The cabinet used to have clear glass, but I didn’t like that you could clearly see everything in them. I didn’t know the shelf liner would have a pattern, but it works for now to diffuse the what’s behind the doors.
This is looking back at the shower from the toilet.
And that’s my new bathroom! I still hate the layout; the architect that designed this bathroom was on crack. There is a lot of wasted space, but no one will let me take a sledgehammer to the built-in storage cabinets or the wall between the shower and toilet. So it works for now! The bathroom looks so much better than when we first moved in, and is very fresh and bright. No more 80′s nasty yellow trim or sponge painted countertops. And while I love my husband’s bathroom, this one is so much girlier. Which is what I was going for!
