Bathroom Makeover Reveal

Hello Everyone, yes, today is the day that I am FINALLY showing you pictures of our bathroom makeover. Before doing this makeover, I had to remove the pink and white striped wallpaper above the wainscotting, then we had to remove the small style white tile floor. Once that was done, I then added a fresh coat to the beadboard, which is a Soft Linen white, then painted the walls a nice gray color called Secret Locket. The next step in the makeover was putting the new 12" square gray floor tiles in that we purchased at Menards. It was this tile that set the stage for the makeover, and helped to determine the wall color and what accessories I wanted to put in here.

Now onto the reveal........

This is the small door that leads you into the bathroom. This door is original to the house.

Now let's step inside our small main bathroom......we are using the same sink/cabinet we had, as it does work well with all the changes, but next year I think I would like to find something just a little bit larger, and with more of a countertop to work with.

Now we are inside of the bathroom, looking to our right, and this is where are shower/tub is located. I purchased the gorgeous ruffled and lacey shower curtain a few months back, and it works perfectly in here now.

On this little wall I've placed a sweet little white frame with one of Rebecca's (A Gathering Place) notecards inside.

Here is a better look at our new floor tiles, which I just LOVE ! And of course, I had to get a new rug, and this one is perfect in here. Found it at Target.

Vintage wall sconce that I painted white and added some sparkly crystal to, for some little bling in here.

Here is the vintage mirror that I had showed before, but now I have added a pretty garland with pink roses to it.

A sweet little shelf with hooks for hanging a couple of Rebecca's pretty pink Sachets, and a Vintage dress from. On top are a couple of pretty accessories and vintage linen.

The same toilet was used in here, as it's only about 3 or 4 years old, and love the shape & style of it. The cute little metal shelf I found a couple of weeks ago at a local Antique mall, and it holds the sweet Teacup nightlight that I won in a Giveaway from Janet at Shabbyfufu.

This metal planter hangs above the toilet and was purchased at that same Antique mall as the shelf. I painted it white and added some pretty faux pink roses and fluers inside of it, and draped this gorgeous vintage hanky on it.

To the left side is a sweet little table with a couple of accessories, a magazine rack, holding some of my little collection of Romantic Country magazines, and above on the wall is my favorite Canvas print of pretty pink roses by Christie Repasy inside a tin frame.

Here is a close-up of it....

And this concludes the reveal and tour of our Bathroom makeover. It took a little longer than expected to get it all finished, but I am so happy with how it all turned out.

I hope you enjoyed the tour :)

Very pretty, Brenda! Your bathroom reminds me of mine ~ gray walls {which we inherited} and no window. I gave it a Summer look recently and I got that same rug at Target!

visiting from Feathered Nest Friday : )

Dearest Brenda,

Such a lovely, romantic 'little room' that one wants to linger forever!
Love the canvas from Christie in the tile frame, the magazine rack that is off the floor and hanging. For some reason, I want as much off the floor things as possible, makes for easy cleaning.
That vintage batiste hanky or doily is incredible with the needle-lace inside and the broad crocheted lace edging all around.
That milk jug painted with roses and filled with roses is a steal too. Oh and the framed card from Rebecca was a genial idea!
Have to stop here, as said one would love to linger here forever!
Love to you,


Linda Carole Bloom said...

I love your new bathroom. Nice roses, but still a clean and quiet color scheme. And your Repasy rose print is perfect here. Bet you are glad to have it finished.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi Brenda!

Love your pretty new bathroom makeover!! The color is so pretty, and I love all of your pretty accents. Rebeccas stuff is so purty!! I bet the stripped wallpaper was lovely as well, but sometimes you need a change. I am planning on doing mine over too, and I have the same waincotting on the bottom. Just lovely!


Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Brenda,

Trusting that your husband has had a wonderful birthday on Mother's Day! I had planned on getting in touch with you but we were leaving for a cruise next day and you know how hectic things are; laundry etc. etc. We had 5 relaxing days though. Enjoy your Sunday and sending you love,

Cindy@Cutepinkstuff said...

Sweeeeet redo! Lots of work, but worth it! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my pillows, Brenda! Have a great week!

Leanne Dyson said...

Congratulations on such an amazing makeover! Those new floor tiles are really beautiful, and you chose exactly the right wall color to go with it. I love the antique theme you chose for the entire space. I think you can do with newer fixtures too, but maybe in a year or so. I think it would be great if, in the middle of all these wonderful antique-style decors, you had an ultra-modern toilet, the ones that are more elongated and are water-saving. It would be a great focus point for sure.
