Bathroom Renovations

The master bathroom in this house has been… an adventure. Starting back just months after we purchased the house, we noticed a soft spot underneath the disgusting white linoleum. With visions of falling through through the ceiling into the kitchen below, we replaced the plywood and put down octagonal tile, and with that the bathroom renovation officially began.

Months later we revisited the room, this time taking down the ivy print wallpaper from all the walls. A light fixture also came down at that time, and I can’t even remember why.

Before: Down to drywall, mismatched knobs, missing lights, and busted cabinets

Because then it sat. For months. Other projects took precedence, and we hid the bathroom from visitors at all costs.

When Uncle Sam came through with tax returns, we knew exactly which room needed the most loving. The husband was absolutely fed up even thinking about all of the work required, but I was beyond excited to finally have the light, airy bathroom of my dreams.

After a bevy of painters, plumbers, and electricians, and a bit of installation work by the husband and myself, I can finally say- It is finished.

See for yourself!

It was a long time coming, but I am just in love with the results. What was once a forever-in-progress mismatched disaster is finally my personal spa and little oasis!

    • I just love the color- it changes from more green to more blue depending on the light, but it always feels fresh! Probably to one time I committed to a color without changing my mind a thousand times 🙂

  1. Major bathroom envy!!!! Our master bath has ugly wallpaper, a tiny shower, and an adorable clawed foot bathtub that is deceivingly small (was so excited about it until I took a bath). We’ve been considering a bathroom re-do but haven’t had the time or $ to focus on it yet- but when we do I’m totally suggesting this color!!!! Heck I might suggest this color for our bedroom!!!!! What is the color and #??!?!?!?!
