I know you've all been waiting forever for this...well its finally HERE! Reveal day!
We actually finished the construction of this bathroom back in early September, but the room wasn't finished just yet. We wanted to completely finish it before we blogged about it...however we could barely afford to buy a toilet paper holder to put in there. Reno's are expensive people! So we waited and waited until we could afford to buy a few things...its still not completely finished, but we figured you might completely forget we had even done this, if we didn't blog about it soon!
Lets start at the beginning. Here is what we had to work with:
Ok where to begin. Pink floors. Sigh. We really had no way of working with these- we knew they had to go.
Secondly the vanity was about as tall as my lower thighs. If I was 4 feet this would not have been a problem. However for someone 5ft8, I was barely able to wash my face without sitting on the floor.
I don't know about you, but "beachy" mixed with "roman sconces" does NOT mix. LOVE the beach. Not such a fan of the mideaval flare....
Colours. Where to begin. This bathroom had red, orange, blue, pink grey and gold...and probably other colours mixed in there too somewhere. I am not a 'fall' colour person. Our ENTIRE house was fall colours when we moved in. Slowly...slowly we are changing that, but this bathroom looked a bit like a rainbow exploded in it...we dont do rainbow guts.
In all reality there were no words. We just knew we wanted to change the ENTIRE thing. So now that Ive told you all the things we hated about this bathroom, lets focus on the positives shall we?! The size of the room was great, so we had a lot of space to work with. Great light comes into this room, so that was another positive and we had space to play with- nothing was stopping us from changing the layout around...except cost that is!
Sooooo...here it is friends - our pride and joy!
Here's the before and after of our tub:
and other details:
I will be doing a bunch of separate posts to talk about how we did some of the projects in this bathroom, including the shower tile pattern, paneling on the walls, how we designed the space, how we managed to do all of this on a tight budget, etc, so now that you've seen the reveal, expect a bunch more posts on this bathroom to come!
We think it turned out pretty darn good ;)
I'll be posting more pictures as we add in the finishing touches...photos in the picture frames (lol), drapes, accent table, etc, etc...but for now we're pretty happy with it!
