I am SO excited to finally get to show you our guest bathroom makeover!!! But before we get started let me just show you some “before” pictures.
This is a good before picture of what the cabinets, and up, used to look like but of course I forgot to take a picture before we replaced the floors! However I did find this gem, from when I was taking pictures with my phone, before we moved into our house. I just had to show you the carpet! Yes, CARPET in the bathroom!!!
Oh the memories… I do NOT miss any of the mauve from this room! It was COVERED in it, from the painted ceiling, the walls, switch plates, sinks, flower faucets, tile, tub, carpet, even the toilet!!!
We replaced the toilet early on but here’s a before picture of what the shower/toilet room looked like. It was so dark with all the mauve and the shower curtain from our other house’s guest bathroom.
The shower was also mauve, surprise! Here’s a before picture of what it looked like.
I seriously hated this bathroom from the minute we moved in. It’s a great space but it was SO ugly!!! It needed a makeover! The first thing we did was paint the ceilings white and the walls gray. That alone made a HUGE difference!
Then my husband tore out the pink tile and sinks on the vanity. We purchased a pre-fabricated granite slab, from a local company, and bought new white sinks, which updated the bathroom 100x over! I also bought new glass covers to update the light fixtures without having to spend a lot of money on new ones.
The only mauve left in the bathroom was the tub and shower surround, which had to go. It would have cost us a lot to tear the whole thing out, so instead I used Rust-Oleum’s Tub and Tile Refinishing kit (click HERE to see that makeover). Instead of spending hundreds on a new shower, for $26.00 it went from this…
Isn’t it AMAZING!?!
Meanwhile, back at the vanity, we finished installing the new faucets from Price Pfister, framed the mirror with a MirrorMate Frame but the oak cabinets were killing me since everything else was looking so nice and updated! I knew I didn’t have it in me to paint them so instead I got Old Village Paste Stain & Clear Glaze and stained them Ebony.
You like Matt’s flannel PJs? 🙂
The black looked so clean and so sharp, I was actually giddy while I did this part of the project. When I was finish I let them dry and then added these gorgeous knobs and pulls from D. Lawless Hardware.
Once the hardware was on I went shopping at TJ Maxx to accessorize the bathroom. I added a few finishing touches and when it was all put together I wanted to cry because I was so happy with the outcome! What do you think of our new guest bathroom?
Since I love a good before and after picture here are two more glimpses at how far this bathroom has come!
What do you think of our new, updated bathroom? I absolutely love it and sometimes just go in there to look at how pretty, bright, and NOT pink it is! 🙂
