Master Bath Makeover


Over the winter we did the final touches on our master bath makeover. Even though there are still a few minor touches left, I'm calling it done!



All the cabinets were standard oak stained and since this bathroom may be gutted in our grand 5 year plan, we didn't want to spend any extra money. So we just painted what's there. I'm a white trim gal! 

Before:


I had already started priming over the stenciled green 
leaves all. over. the. walls as seen below...

I think the previous owners wanted to pretend they were in an outhouse!





   
I used the rug as inspiration, which I found at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I love the five colors to pull from it - taupe, light aqua, moss green, white and cream. They have the coordinating accessories as well.



You may have wondered what is under the hand-towel:



We switched around the hooks to make them work better for the space. Since there isn't much room at the sink for the regular circle hook, we are using the robe hook. It works perfectly!


And then we put the circle hook next to the tub for a larger towel.









 Before you get all excited about the garden tub... in two years, I've used it once. I don't like how big it is and requires so much water. In the summer, I set an old wooden drying rack in it for wet swimsuits. Romantic, huh?







There's a pocket door which is reminiscent of days past, but totally 
unpractical for a bathroom! We live with it.

Btw, the wall color is Behr Fresh Day.

And now to the icky shower door....






Let's cover it up!!



It's fresh & clean and adds light, too! I found the hooks at either Target or Kohl's, pretty sure it wasn't BB&B, but they match perfectly!

Whew...that's as much as I'm doing! Lot's of detail painting but I'm done. DONE! We have moved on to our bedroom, the kids bathroom (latest post), my office. All are in various stages of re-do. Hoping to get the kitchen cabinets painted this summer, another room and start on the laundry room. Where's my coffee...?

I can totally appreciate all the work this took. Still laughing at the outhouse comment! I just finished my master bath makeover (not even a complete remodel and it took 8 weeks!). You finishing touches are beautiful and you should be so proud. Enjoy your new space!

Thanks Holly! 8 weeks is fast! We started almost 2 yrs ago. Our first phase of painting walls & trim took almost 6 months. Then a 6 month break. Back at it for finishing the cabinets & window trim. Then hub says we'll replace the windows so stop painting, huh? But, yay, for stopping! Thanks for visiting!

Love it when re-do's come out great! Your bathroom looks so much lighter. I remember when oak was really in style, but I'm awful tired of oak. I like what your paint job did...I can see it was a lot of tedious work, but it sure paid off!
