Master Bathroom Makeover Reveal

We did it! We completed our second One Room Challenge (along with over 180 other bloggers) and finished our master bathroom makeover in 6 weeks. As predicted, there were some bumps, but all in all we completed the vision and have been enjoying our completely made over space.

Let’s look at the before pictures.

Pretty builder grade standard which was actually perfect for my intentions of using the bones of what I had and sprucing it up with some paint and little additions!

Here was the process of our master bathroom makeover

  1. Remove backsplash and spray paint counters
  2. Paint gray walls and baseboards
  3. Paint vanity
  4. Spray paint light fixture and hardware
  5. Paint black wall
  6. Remove toilet, lay and grout floors and backsplash
  7. Caulk floors at the baseboards, around toilet, and caulk backsplash
  8. Build, stain and mount mirror trim. Stain towel rack
  9. Mount shelves, vanity hardware, and towel rack
  10. Decorate
  11. Use the glorious bathroom finally!!

And OF COURSE share with my wonderful friends and readers who have been so sweet to see it finished!

Picture overload! Every angle is so different and fresh that I couldn’t resist. (And throwing a squishy baby in the mix was too tempting to pass up.) I’ll go into some of the decision points and product reviews in the next week. There’s just too much beauty to take in as well as text!

As promised here is a cost breakdown of what went into this makeover. My initial budget was $100, but that didn’t happen. Still, I was quite pleased with how much we did to this space with the dollar amounts below! I broke the costs between the actual items that made the makeover and the additional decor items I purchased per my taste. Anything not listed (paint, caulk, decor, extra hardware) we already had on hand!

Oh and vinyl peel and stick floor! It’s so easy to install and requires no tile saws. And you can grout it which makes it look totally legit.

Leave any questions below and I’ll get to them. Thanks for following along friends!

Petite Modern Life

I'm Karisa. I live just outside of Seattle with my husband Michael {Mr. G}, our two cats, Rue and Archimedes, and our new Australian Shepherd pup in crime, Moose. We are do-it-yourself enthusiasts. I'm the dreamer, he's the strategist, and teamed up we get it done. In January 2014 we purchased our first house! The many adventures of remodeling, decorating, and inevitable redecorating will be documented here. I was born and raised in the PNW & I love the PNW life. Mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean, trees, rain, and sun: every sight & season has its own flavor & tune. It inspires in me activity, coziness, and sprees of creativity. I'm rather obsessed with white paint, natural light, homemade pizza, and a glass of red wine.
