We've been in our house over a year now and we may be nearing completion on updating the bathroom. Maybe.
Here's what she looked like when we moved in...
In all her oak-cabinet-linoleum-floor-glory.
And here she is now...
We may have painted it twice. Ok, we did. I should NEVER be allowed to choose blue paint because I NEVER like it. So we switched to a super dark charcoal gray.
We put in a new toilet, took out the mirror that was held up by plastic clips and added medicine cabinets (which was GREAT for more storage), added shelves above the toilet (some storage but mostly decorative...sorry, honey), We put in a new tile floor, a new window (we're hoping to slowly change out all the windows in the house to newer more energy efficient ones) and updated the trim. Obvi, we painted the vanity and changed out the hardware.
We also changed to a sliding barn door. I LOVE barn doors BUT this was actually a practical matter. The door opened in to the bathroom and honestly it took up valuable real estate.
Jeremy MADE the actual door itself because DANG those things are expensive to buy. The hardware can be pretty pricey too but I found a decent priced set on Amazon.
So adding a barn door on the outside opened up the wall that was behind the door...where...we...put...SHIPLAP!
Ok, it's faux shiplap but whatevs. Joanna Gaines would still be proud I just know it.
We put towel hooks up for everyone and the kids have little mirrors that are the perfect height for them. If you look closely you can also see their step stools hung up towards the bottom under their towels. Or you can see Ben's at least...
I'd love a marble counter top with undermount sinks and a tiled shower but those are pretty far down on my list right now.
Because I like Before And After pics...
Thanks for checking out my bathroom makeover!
