154 Bathroom Makeover Week! The REVEAL!

Oh my goodness I am so excited, I can barely stand it.  This will go down as one of my favorite reveals yet.  The suspense was even killing ME!  Day after day over this past week, we have put in every spare second of our time, our blood, sweat and tears into this bathroom makeover.

Let's take a minute to look back at what we started with.


Dated everything.  Blah white vanity cabinet, old formica counter, a toilet that wasn't functioning, discolored flooring and a medicine cabinet without a purpose and eighties lighting.  It really was a deep dark unhappy place tucked away within a nook of our home, and was not at all a reflection of us or our personality.

Hosting company put us into gear to hurry and give this room some love, and I couldn't be happier that we finally took on a project that has been on our "To Do" list for some time.

Day one I stayed up nice and late and slapped a few coats of paint on the walls {Behr's Quietude}.


Day two I primed and painted the cabinets {Martha Stewart Wrought Iron} and removed the trim to prepare for the flooring.


Day three I went on the hunt for a new mirror, lined the cabinets with pretty paper and the hubs started laying our new floors.


Day four the sconces were installed, the mirror was given a little love and I came up with some cute storage for the Q-Tips.


Over the weekend we wrapped up the installation items, such as the floor, the trim, the toilet, the sink and faucet and all of the hardware and shelving.  It was a VERY productive weekend!


So all of that build up and anticipation, all for the FINAL REVEAL!  We did it.  I am not sure how, I didn't think we would, but we did.  We got everything done the day of our company arriving.  I finished styling and shooting the photos only an hour prior.  That is some soap opera drama right there.

You have read all of the details for the past week, so I am going to let the photos do all of the talking today.

Let me just hop into the shower quick and give you my favorite view right away...



The wall received the pretty knobs turned hooks.  They now hold a hand towel and bathroom accessories.


The white counter cleaned up the entire space.  It now feels timeless, and allows all of the accessories to really pop.





The inside of the vanity received a little love as well.  The shelf liner was the perfect backdrop to the fluffy white towels, scrubbers, cleaning supplies and paper products.



Above the loo, we DIY'd and stained a wooden shelf, which now holds a mason jar of flowers and some wash rags.




The frame was a Goodwill find, and I added brass L-brackets from the hardware store to give it a little extra somethin' somethin'.


The art was a saying that I have been crushing at for quite a long time, that Emily Ley sure is a smart cookie.


Below the shelf was another Goodwill find.  A simple white dish holds yummy smelling soaps.



The hooks act as the perfect resting place for more towels.




Let's crawl back into the shower.  You can snag a sweet look at how the shower curtain plays nicely with all of the other colors and accessories in the space.


And how about we give some love to the new floors.  Completely waterproof, yet they look oh so warm, rustic and chic.


The cabinet to the right of the curtain holds a few extra goodies.  Extra toiletries and the new oh-so-sweet tip jar.


And that rounds out the week long bathroom drama with the happiest ever after!


Did I want to cry at times?  Absolutely.  Was I let down multiple times?  Yep.  Did I wonder time and time again if our marriage would survive or if we would finish in time?  Yes and yes.  Was it worth every last ounce of time?  No doubt.

I am excited to see what we can pull off within a week's worth of time, however, I now feel like I need a renovation vacation, so I am not sure we will be as ambitious with future projects.  But man does it feel incredible to walk into that bathroom.

  17. I love it! It looks fantastic!!!! I love everything and I am addicted to cute knobs too. You should sew a small ribbon "hook" on your white hand towel and loop it over your other anthro knob so you can see that knob too. For that splurge you should show it off!

  22. I love the finished room! Everything plays so nicely together and the space has so much character without being overwhelming. My husband and I bought our home (brand new) three years ago and both of our bathrooms have remained untouched. I've bee wanting to paint/decorate but haven't seen the need (since everything is new and we won't be staying here very much longer), but this makeover makes me really want to get in there and update our bathrooms!

    LOVE!

  23. I am in LOVE with this makeover. It is gorgeous, it sure would put a smiile on my face every time I walked into the room!

  25. Holy bright and beautiful, batman! Not that I didn't expect it from you, but I seriously love every detail. The mirror is perfection, the gold print and frame details, the happy shower curtain. Just everything. Give yourself (and Bryan, too!) a pat on the back for a job very well done.

  33. I think this has been my favourite week of blog posts, and that's saying something because I love your blog posts in general... It looks lovely, and it's been great seeing it happen in "real time". You've inspired me to work together with my hubby on a few DIY things in the evening after the kids are in bed - so nice projects to work on together.. Thanks for the inspiration :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. It looks really beautiful - everything came together so well. And can I be honest and say that I'm glad you now need a break from renovations? So often I read blogs and feel like such a slacker. Thanks for being real about the blood, sweat, and tears.

  36. I still can't believe you did all of THAT in a week. It looks so much better than the dated builder grade bathroom (which we still have, sad face). Maybe this will be some inspiration for the hubby to want to work on our guest bath.
    Congratulations at getting it done in time! I love it!

    1. Hi Priscilla!

      We ended up with a solid surface top with the sink molded as part of the piece. I figured it offered a super clean look, and will also be much easier to maintain and clean down the line.

      Here is the source: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Newport-37-in-W-x-22-in-D-AB-Engineered-Composite-Vanity-Top-in-White-with-White-Bowl-N3722GB-W/202021947#.Ug0lf1N6Ou4

      It was the perfect size for our existing cabinet so there was no need to cut it down or have it custom ordered which was really nice.

  40. BEAUTIFUL!!! I LOVE the way it turned out!! You are fantastic at staging rooms. Reminds me of things I'd see on HGTV. I'm loving the flowers? I'm assuming you use silk flowers? To keep the upkeep simple, haha. I just put a few in my kitchen a little while ago and love how they add life to the room.

    Loving the color combo and everything about this room! Wish I was the one staying there and using that bathroom! Haha :)

  44. Fantastic, simply fantastic. I love everything about this space. You've got a great eye. I wish I had the guts to do something a little different with our hall bathroom last year but I played it safe. There's always the upstairs bathroom...

  54. This is just soooo beautiful!!! every little detail is beyond gorgeous!
    I have a silly question regarding the mirror. Is it ok to use any mirror in the bathroom without having to worry about it lasting in there with all the steam and moisture? I found so many beautiful mirrors in homegoods but I wasn't sure if I could use in our master bathroom...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That is a great question. My guess would be that most mirrors are OK. Certain finishes may be a little less ideal given the moisture, so it might just come down to a judgement call or a quick search on Google.

  55. It looks great. Is that cabinet formica or wood? We have white formica in our bathrooms and hate it. I don't know if you can paint formica or not. Any suggestion?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmmmm... To be honest, I don't know what you would technically call it. It was a wood with a glossy finish, sort of like a melamine. I think you would be OK if you used a good primer first as we did. We also used a really good paint. It turned out SO great, I love it like crazy. Maybe take a door or drawer in to your local paint shop and talk to a specialist for the best solution.

    1. Hi Emily!

      It was surprisingly easy {from what the hubby said}. It seems as though our vanity is a standard size so Home Depot had one that already fit it perfectly, however, many home improvement stores can custom order if they don't stock your particular size.

      Best of luck to you as you take on your half bath! I am cheering you on from here!

      You can find the scoop on the primer and paint here: http://iheartorganizing.blogspot.com/2013/08/bathroom-makeover-week-day-two.html

      Because I used a glossy exterior paint, I decided not to seal it as I feel it should hold up OK to the interior bath if it was designed to stand up to outdoor elements. :)

  80. This is just a beautiful room. Once again, the little touches make the whole thing for me. The knobs on the wall are just fantastic. You didn't mention it, so I wonder if it's not new,
    but the cover for your air vent on the floor is a really nice touch too. I also really like the L-brackets on the frame. I would have never thought to add that!! Great work!

  82. Hi Jen,
    I love your blog. It keeps me in a happy place whenever I see it. My question to you is....how do you choose the paint colors in your home? I have 2 boys and a husband, and I think I make the mistake of asking them what colors they would like in the rooms, etc.
    Your home seems to flow gracefully with your paint choices and organization. Can you help me?

    1. Hi Kimberly!

      Thank you so much! I try and select colors that are gender neutral for the most part, and then maybe add my small girly touches through an accessory here and there. My guys seem to like it all OK, although, I think they are more concerned with playing than the colors on our walls. :)

  88. This is - by far - one of my most favourite washroom makeovers ever!!! You have such a good eye, and everything in there is so glam and fresh and special! That's the best part - it's so special! I want to be a guest int his bathroom!

  89. You totally Rocked it out of the park Jen! I am loving everything and you have so inspired me to get my butt in gear to update our guest bath. Thanks for the fabulous inspiration!

  90. I did not think your old bathroom looked wrong: before reading I thought it was a picture AFTER renovating one!

    Anyways, even that said, I do think your new bathroom looks adorable! You did a very pretty job. Congratz!!

  92. Love the bathroom!

    Can I ask what you did to the mason jar to make it gold? Is it paint? Gold leaf?

    1. Thank you! The jar was purchased blue and I just taped it off with painters tape and gave it a quick coat of gold spray paint {Rustoleum's Gold Metalic}. Love it too! I had to make a couple of them to sprinkle around the abode.

  93. This is beautiful! And, a real inspiration as I've been trying to figure out what to do in our en suite (we just moved in). My question...did you paint over laminate cupboards? And, if so, was there any special prep required?

    1. Hi Jenn!

      We did paint the laminate cabinet, you can snag the details her: http://iheartorganizing.blogspot.com/2013/08/bathroom-makeover-week-day-two.html

      I just primed them and then did two coats of a high quality glossy exterior paint. I love the results!

  94. Fantastic job!

    I do have to say though, that I still kind of want the vintage-y looking towel rack that you had before too!

    I'll certainly be pinning this one though! Good work!

    1. Thank you! Loved the shelf as well, however, it was really visually heavy, especially once loaded with towels and accessories and just wasn't right for the space any longer. If you are near the twin cities area, it is being donated to the ReStore. ;)

  95. Jen, what a beautiful transformation!! Fresh and classic and feminine-but-not-too-girly all at once!! We're showing our small powder room a little love and I very literally "now way-ed" and "oh wow-ed" when I saw that we've used very similar items, ha ha. Have a fab weekend! =)

  96. It looks even more fabulous than I had imagined it would!!!!
    Love the navy cabinets and your shower curtain!!!
    Also love that you used hooks instead of the traditional towel rack.

  99. That bathroom is so perfect for when I visit!!!! Seriously...amazing job, girlie!!

  100. I love your makeover, and I am happily reassured by one detail: I noticed that your sconces are brushed nickel, while your faucet is polished chrome. I just did the same thing in my powder room makeover, and was stressing about whether or not it was the 'right' thing to do. You showed me that it doesn't have to be all matchy-matchy to be beautiful. Thank you SO MUCH for that! Enjoy your beautiful bathroom.

  102. So beautiful- really great job! What are the room dimensions? We are building a similar layout bathroom- curious if mine might have the same spacious feel

  103. Jen, I'm dying! It is TOO gorgeous! The gold touches on the frame with the pinks and reds are my favorite. I can't believe you did this all in a week. Stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  104. That is sooooo great! Classic, warm, inviting. If you can't find your house guests they might be hanging in the bathroom!

  105. It looks beautiful! I love all the little details like the gold dipped mason jar!

  106. SO glad I saw this! I have been trying to convince hubs that the Allure floor will be perfect for the bathroom!

    How did you tackle the edge of the flooring that buts against the tub?

    Thanks for the great pics of how your hubs did the cuts and all, so helpful.

  108. You did a great job. Thanks for sharing. A great combination of modern and classic. I love the towel hooks!

  109. I am curious how you feel about the lights in this bathroom now that you have had them for awhile. I am trying to decide what lighting to put in a small bathroom with no windows, and hate it when I'm in someone else's bathroom and can't see a thing when I'm doing my makeup!

    1. Hi Kimberly!

      We are loving the amount of light. It seems perfect for the space. We ended up using two 60 watt bulbs so it seems nice and bright.

    1. Hi Carol!

      For the mason jar, I taped it off and spray painted the bottom with gold spray paint. The tip jar was made from a recycled jar. :)

      xo!
