Bathroom Befores

I found the old pictures of our bathroom. Can I get a "YIKES!"?

Our house used to be a rental. I guess that's the only reason why it was never fixed up. But seriously, even so--can you imagine living in a dump like this??

That wallpaper border was a pain in the you-know-what to take off. And EVERYTHING needed painting.

So I kinda went crazy.

A friend and I made a stencil from the curtain fabric and painted those swirlies on the wall.

We added the crown molding and corner pieces and pretty much painted every surface in there including the vanity, doors, and trim. We swapped out the huge builder grade mirror with a recessed one, added new lighting, and put in a tile floor.

It was bright, fresh and fun and I loved it. I would have told you it was my favorite room in the house. But, of course I got sick of the green soon enough.

So then we went a completely different direction: soothing, calm, serene. 

We added the bead board and freshened everything up.

Check out more pictures of our current bathroom here. So those were quite the transformations, right? It's funny how your taste changes, isn't it? I'm lovin' my cool, calm and collected bathroom now. I wonder what the next look will be? This is going to be the boys' bathroom soon enough...maybe a more boyish theme?? (Yes, it's true, I drive Mitch crazy with all my ideas.)

Participating in:


  1. I've never been a bright colors person but my sister is. Her bedroom growing up was that color of green!
    I think the bathroom is fine for boys, maybe change out the shower curtain. I am really loving painted subtle stripes, they may be cute in this bathroom

  2. I love the bead board and the new paint color! Your bathroom has certainly been on a journey. I'd love if you'd check out the giveaway I'm having for a Dremel Saw Max! I think you could use it in your next renovation! ;)

  3. The shower was an old porcelain hook tub. My grandmother used to have one in her restroom, so it was an unquestionable requirement in our lavatory renovating. visit this web-site
