The long anticipated (by me at least) reveal of our tiny master bathroom makeover is here! If you want to refresh your memory of my design plans for the room, you can go HERE, and see our mid-way progress HERE, and I shared the build plans for the vanity HERE. I also revealed the new (old) barn door we installed for this bathroom HERE creating so much more usable floor space.
I’m really proud of this room. We (my husband and I) did everything, and several of the projects were ones we had never attempted before.
As I described in my progress post, we opened the wall so we could move the outlet and extend the studs (so we could reinforce the floating shelves), re-sheetrocked, then installed the faux shiplap over the entire room. After painting, we installed the octagonal tile, built the vanity, and built floating shelves. The entire room, including floating shelves and trim was painted with Benjamin Moore Aura interior paint in Simply White Satin. The Satin adds just enough sheen to reflect more light, which helps the room appear larger.
I recruited my kids (ages 9, 6, and 4) to help me build these floating shelves. My oldest drilled pocket holes and helped screw them into the wall, the 6 year old marked which board was for what, and placed the pocket hole screws in the holes, and my youngest sanded all the edges of all the boards. They really enjoyed being a part of a quick project that had a big impact!
I enjoyed accessorizing the shelves with both pretty and functional things.
Sea sponges, natural soaps…
..and pretty jars and sea-grass baskets…
I also was searching EVERYWHERE for some wooden toothbrushes and ended up having to buy them online.
Let me tell you, these “yours” and “mine” toothbrushes spur the funniest conversations. Ours went something like this:
“Which one is yours?”
“Mine is ‘yours'”
“I don’t want to share toothbrushes!”
“I know. You get ‘mine’ and I’ll take ‘yours’.”
“No. I don’t want yours! Mine is mine. Yours is yours. No sharing toothbrushes.”
It felt a little like that “Who’s on First” joke by Abbott and Costello. 🙂
Here is a peek of the other side of the room… I put up hooks instead of using a towel bar, and you can see the other side of the door that I stripped. I really like the contrast it adds. The shower curtain is one I found at HomeGoods and is one of my favorite finds. It is cotton towel material with fringe at the bottom and perfect warm-gray stripes.
Part of the reason I had to wait so long for this reveal was the light fixture I chose from Lamps Plus was back-ordered until a couple weeks ago. It was SO worth the wait though.
It adds just the right amount of vintage industrial flair. This is the Urban Renewal 3 light Vanity Light by Feiss in Antique Brass.
My love for this light fixture rivals that of the Champagne Bronze Delta Faucet. I have a thing for gold… have I told you that before? 😉
What a difference, right?
Lamps Plus, Delta Faucet, and Osborne Wood Products all provided me with products I used in this makeover in exchange for mention in this post. All opinions are my own and I would not recommend them if I didn’t absolutely freakin love them and feel honest about partnering with them.
