Bathroom Reveal

I am so happy to show you my newly updated basement bathroom. I am so excited to show it off, it turned out better than I imagined - it's now my favorite room of the house.
Drum Roll Please . . .

From Scary and Boring . . .
To Bright and Cheerful . . .
It now has just the right hint of cottage charm and modern farmhouse that I was hoping to for. (I don't know why the floor is looking so dark - it is much lighter in person)
Before:After: Here is the vanity and mirror before:

And afterI painted the vanity white and replaced the hardware.

Also gave the mirror a quick coat of white paint.

Here's a better view of the light fixture Mr. J installed for me. No more ugly runway lights - Glory Hallelujah!
Doorway before:
And after with a freshly painted door and trim.
Here's another view long wall.

And finally a closeup of the cute little bench I made and distressed.

I still have a few things I would like to do which will have to wait awhile. I'd like to replace the faucet and mirror. I'm also on the look out for a large blue and white striped rug within by budget.
I love, love, love the rooms new look, hope you do too!
Until tomorrow. Robin

  3. Great job! It's amazing what some white bead board can do for a room, isn't it?

  4. WHat a huge difference! It really changes the entire room! I love that beadboard! Jen

  5. Such a transformation!! Totally loving the beadboard and all the white! I'm so inspired! I can't wait to do our master bath now!!

  6. A transformation indeed! The beadboard looks great. The whole room seems so much lighter and more spacious. Great job.


  7. You did a fabulous job on this! I love the new treatment to the walls. :)

  8. I adore that bench. Do you have instructions as to how you made it? I've been looking for something like that for my entryway.


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
