Once Upon a Time I shared the story of our upstairs bathroom which was in need of work. I told you about how we thought we had two months before our youngest was back home for a year and then she moved home early - right in the middle of the renovation.
Here are few (scary) reminders of what it looked like BEFORE....
|It once had polished brass and bone colored tub and tile|
(polished brass finish was a fail like some of the bronze finishes, it just doesn't hold up)
|It had gold tone mirrors and greenish paint|
|Some places (to my surprise) still had the paint color BEFORE the greenish paint|
|The previous owner had new tile put in the tub and toilet area, |
but put NEW carpet in the sink area before we bought the house!
But then, we
But here are the pictures finally, after I've had a chance to recover. I would have taken a few more but the minute it was completed it was occupied and covered with girl products galore.
|I repainted the frames on the mirrors in a two tone combo of bronze and nickel|
to tie all the mix/match metal colors together
|The tub and tile was re-finished and the trim on the shower/tub was replaced|
|A new Shower Curtain and Towels finished the updated look|
I apologize for the yellow tint to the pics it's difficult to take pictures
in this small room with or without the flash the color seems off
|Carpet was replaced with wood look tile - |
of course the tiles in the bath area were discontinued
so matching them was not an option
|New paint, new light, new switches, new cover plates, repainted mirror frames|
this pic is before the crown molding was added, now it looks even better
minus the paint cans, etc helps too
Removed the popcorn ceiling, added new texture and paint
Added crown molding in the sink area
Added an exhaust fan and light to the shower area
Had the faux marble vanity top coated with the same white as the tub and tile (it really was this yellowish color) I'm anxious to see how the finish holds up
We had previously replaced the faucets, towel bars/rings and tissue holder
I think this room is DONE (for now at least) and the daughter who lives upstairs declares it looks like a "Princess Bathroom." I've never seen a princess bathroom, but I'm sure that's a compliment.
