I’m so excited to finally share this little facelift we gave to our guest bathroom. For starters, here’s the before (YIKES):
This bathroom is in the bedroom in the back of our house. I absolutely love this room. It’s spacious, has doormer windows and gets really nice lighting. If ever there were a multi-purpose room this is it.
We use this room as a guest bedroom, playroom, office and all around catch all space. The bonus and what makes it such a special guest bedroom is that it has it’s own bathroom.
The bathroom, as you can see above, left little to be desired. We finally decided to give it a little makeover and I could not be happier with the way it turned out. We were super lucky that although the tile is very old and original to the house, it’s in ok shape and black and white. I can work with that!
Before I tell you what we did, I want to make a note about working with what you have. If our tile had been blue but our time and budget wouldn’t allow for new tile I would have either painted it (YES, you can do that!) or I would have put tile stickers on it (YES, those are a thing!). Sometimes you just have to get a little creative.
Here’s what we did
1// Removed the wallpaper…I mean…c’mon wall paper on the ceiling?!
2// Painted- Sherwin Williams Alabaster (basically the color of our entire house)
3// Replaced the vanity- Home Depot
4// Replaced the mirror- Amazon
5// Added pendant lights- this is the little touch that I believe sets the bathroom apart. It’s a tiny little thing but makes all the difference in making it look designed and high end. Wayfair
7// New Shower Curtain- Target
8// New faucet- Amazon (you guys this faucet is AWESOME and the price is sick!)
That’s it! I still plan on hanging a shelf above the toilet so I have a place for oils and a few air plants. My amazing husband did all the labor, I did the cleaning so we only paid for the additions and I’d say we spent a little over $1000 on this makeover.
Do you have a cruddy bathroom you want to makeover but don’t know where to start? Talk to us about it in the comments, I’d love to help!
