After nearly a year in our first house we finally finished the bathroom! It’s been a long week carefully planning the renovation and thankfully everything went smoothly. We spent the entire day yesterday replacing the flooring, vanity, and toilet in the bathroom… with a pizza break in between of course and just as a reminder here is the bathroom before ….
Drum roll please!
It feels so fresh and clean now! My husband and I wanted to create a space that would closely resemble a luxe hotel bathroom so I had decided that the color scheme would be black and white with gold accents. My first purchase was the damask wallpaper which I used as my guide for the rest of the bathroom.
Home Depot had a great bathroom clearance so I was able to score the vanity and toilet for under $400! All in all this renovation came in under $800 and it was well worth it. My husband wasn’t as enthusiastic as I was at the beginning, he felt that the bathroom was fine just the way it was, but now he can’t stop talking about how amazing it looks! A big thank you to my father and husband for doing all the dirty work!!
The vanity didn’t come with a backsplash so today we ran out and grabbed five 3×6 subway tiles and created our own backsplash for less than $2! and it just so happened to be the exact length of the vanity….oh and just so you know, I installed the taps…that was my contribution aren’t they cute?
When we got married we had a candy buffet for our guests and I wanted to keep a few of the apothecary jars that I had used to store bathroom essentials such as q-tips and bath salts.
The vanity was originally an off-white when I purchased it but I thought it deserved a bit of color so I chose to paint it Chinchilla Grey by Martha Stewart, and I love that it has legs to keep it up off the floor!
Now onto the next project
