BEFORE

Here are the before photos- take a look. The bathroom isn’t terrible. It’s builder basic- basic lights, mirror, builder cabinet, and beige vinyl flooring. Okay, maybe it’s terrible. But we’ve fixed that now so keep on scrolling!

REVEAL

The time has come to show off how this amazing project turned out. Starting from the top down, the light fixture and mirror were replaced with beautiful black and gold fixtures. The vanity is painted navy blue in a custom mix by General Finishes.

A great way to see the transformation is with a side by side.

There’s no way to say it- toilets aren’t the most beautiful things to look at, but a great way to give the bathroom a pulled together look is by adding artwork and greenery above the throne. 

Tip: Throw a handful of lavender Epsom salts into a decorative cup and your bathroom will smell as relaxing as it feels.

If you’ve kept up with my Instagram stories, you’ve seen the wallpaper poll. While I didn’t want to wallpaper the entire bathroom, a little navy and gold to tie in the vanity was just what these open shelves needed. You voted YES to wallpaper and this pattern overwhelmingly won. It’s perfect for this space. {Wallpaper: Devine Color Celestial available at Target}

Let’s talk about UGLY floors. Did you know you can paint vinyl floors?? Check out these painted floors!!! The stenciled black Cutting Edge Nola Stencil on crisp white is a huge upgrade from the beige vinyl flooring that is underneath all of that paint. 

Because hand painted cement tiles are in style right now, I decided to DIY the flooring and paint for a cement tile look. Why paint?  I chose paint over tile for a few reasons: 1) the cost is a lot cheaper, there is no cost for tiling tools 2) it was easier to DIY the painting alone vs learning to lay and grout tile 3) kids- they ruin everything!! I didn’t want to run the risk of a DIY tile job that lends itself to easier breaking when the wildlings throw toys or cups out of the tub onto the flooring. Vinyl might be ugly, but it is durable, so for us, painting made sense.

I LOVE LOVE this light fixture. I went to the Ferguson lighting showroom to search for the perfect light and this fixture tied in the gold/brass mixed metal colors throughout the bathroom perfectly. 

It was a quick switch out that made a huge difference from builder grade to a really custom looking bathroom. While I love this fixture, I will note that if you are going to spend money on a new light fixture, make sure you know how much light the room needs, whether you like warm or cool light and whether the fixture you choose will be sufficient. In my case, these bulbs are warm and dim. Luckily, we get great natural light on this side of the house (even with blinds) so the natural light is the primary lighting source and the sconce is decorative. At night, I could not put on makeup with this lighting. So, be mindful of your preferences and what you need for the space when choosing lighting for a room.

Lastly, I found these gems at Anthropoligie and I fell in love. They are solid yet delicate looking and coordinate perfectly with the other mixed metals in this bathroom.

One of the challenges of this bathroom is that there isn’t any wall space for a towel bar. The window takes up all wall space (but I wouldn’t trade that natural light for anything) so using shelves and towel hooks was a great alternative.
