Bathroom Makeover

Well, I’m finally done.  My hall bathroom makeover is complete.  No major renovations here, just the use of paint, fabric, wallpaper and recycled items.  I’m really happy with the new look.  It feels fresh and the room seems so much larger.

Here’s the before:

old bathroom style
It wasn’t the worst bathroom ever.  11 years ago I had done a faux ragging paint technique that I loved at the time, but now seemed really old and tired.   Everything was rust or brown ~ too dark for my taste today.

Here are a few shots of the finished product:

Here’s a look back at my bathroom transformation.  

Decorating with vintage Silver
I decorated with vintage silver.   
  A New Shower Curtain 
I made a new extra long shower curtain.

Fabric Tissue Box Cover 
I covered up an ugly tissue box with a fabric cover

Trim in the Bathroom 
I learned to use power tools and installed some great trim.

Bargain Bathroom Mirror Redo 
I used spray paint to spruce up a bargain mirror.

Medicine Cabinet Makeover
I salvaged a broken down medicine cabinet

Towel Hook Cabinet Door Revamp
I transformed an old cabinet door with towel hooks

Graham and Brown beadboard wallpaper 
I tried my hand at installing bead board wall paper.

Refinished Bathroom Vanity 
I refinished my bathroom vanity with a sleek black stain.

Family Rules Art
Finally, I made a new version of Our Family Rules.

Wow, this was a long post.  Thanks for sticking with me through all of these projects!  Onward and upward to the next room….

  2. I love it! I thought it looked great before and it looks great after. I was hoping I'd see some new house projects. 🙂 I did the same thing with an old mirror in our bathroom. And I love it.

    We just finished a crowned moulding project too. 😉

    I love the rules *floss* lol

  3. Beautiful! You did a great job! Now I want to re-do my bathroom! Right now, it's "Americana" themed…and I'm tired of it. You've inspired me 🙂

  4. What a fantastic makeover! Bravo! Actually, I thought your "before" photo was nice, but then I REALLY liked your "after" shots. My faves are the drawer/towel hook transformation and the family rules. AWESOME!

  5. Want to redo mine next!

    Hi! Now following you! Happy Follow Friday! I would love a follow back and make sure you check out all my fabulous giveaways!

  6. The finished bathroom looks wonderful! I especially love the newly painted vanity in black. I have just given you an award so stop by for a visit.

  7. Wow your bathroom looks great. I'm wanting to add beadboard wallpaper to my bathroom sometime this year. I love your family rules! Another project to tackle!

  8. Girlfriend. It's beautiful! I liked the before, too. You did such a wonderful job, everything is so fresh and coordinated. I love the new "rules" artwork.

  9. I love the beadboard wallpaper and the Family Rules! Great additions in there. I'll be interested to see how well the wallpaper holds up to the wear-and-tear and moisture in the bathroom. I really want to try it in my house but want to check with others who've gone before me! Great job.

  10. WOW. You did a LOT! I can't believe you did trim and I didn't know there was bead board wall paper..I'm going to look for that. Maybe I can even put some hooks on a cabinet door..I'm great at copying..thanks for the inspiration..

  11. I really like the black vanity. We just ordered a black vanity and some people are saying how it won't look right in a bathroom. But you've proved them wrong! Looks great!
