Last year, my husband and I renovated our master bath.
Unfortunately that was before I started blogging, so I didn’t take any “before” pictures.
But to me, it was the ugliest room in the house. Our house was built in 1968, and the bathroom had never been renovated.
It was the typical square-shaped bathroom with the tub/shower on the left, and the vanity and toilet on the right.
The vanity had a very ugly tan and white marbled sinktop.
The toilet and tub were a “flesh” color that I thought at times looked pink.
Okay, I did have this picture, and I just had to share it. (Someday my boys will probably kill me for this.) The tub looks more brown in this picture.
The shower walls were covered with white tiles.
I used this picture for our family Christmas cards several years ago. However, I could not get my littlest, Adam, to put the bubbles on his chin.
So we busted out a wall, and used what little space we had to make our bathroom a little bit bigger.
We bought two marble top vanities at Lowe’s. Everything you see was included, including the bowl sinks and the oil-rubbed bronze faucets.
It was actually cheaper for us to buy these two vanities than to have a custom vanity built to go all the way across the wall, and then have a sinktop made to go with it.
You can see our walk-in shower in the mirror above.
My very talented husband did this all by himself! We found the 12 x 12 square tile and trim pieces at Home Depot. It was on clearance, so we got a great deal! You can see a snippet of the smaller travertine tiles on the floor that we bought from a local tile shop.
The oil-rubbed bronze shower head and knob are from Lowes. (We had hoped to add a glass shower door, but the budget hasn’t allowed for that yet.)
To the right of the shower was a narrow space that we were going to add some built-in shelves….until I found the perfect piece of furniture to put there. Do you see it in the picture below?
In our old bathroom, the toilet was about a foot from the vanity, providing no privacy. So I asked my hubby to add a privacy wall, and I absolutely love it!
My husband also tiled the floor with the same tile that is in the shower. I love the look of the darker grout we chose.
The double light fixture, towel rack, and toilet paper holder all came from Meijers! I couldn’t believe it when I found them there. They were exactly what I was looking for.
For a punch of color on each vanity, I took an old arrangement that my mom had in her basement and wasn’t using anymore, and separated it into two “bunches”.
Then I got two clear vases and filled them with some clear “stones”, all of which I got at Walmart. Then I just added Mom’s flowers to each vase.
I always love a touch of red in a room. It’s my favorite color.
Do you see me in the shower? :) You can see a glimpse of our bedroom fireplace in the mirror on the right. I’ll share our fireplace re-do this week too.
Well, there you have it! My small, yet bigger than it was, bathroom.
Completely renovated by my amazing husband!
