Small Bath Makeover

The little bathroom (as we fondly call it) is the small one attached to our bedroom.  I’ve never dedicated a post to its makeover, and it’s actually one of my favorite rooms in the house. 

This is what it looked like the day we closed on our house.

 Yes.  Those are some yellow walls. 

 Let’s not forget the matching yellow toilet, complete with the lovely robin’s egg blue toilet seat ;P   & the sexy linoleum floor. 

Um, dark, dirty, and outdated.  Not a good combo, and definitely not a place that I want to shower and feel clean!

Here’s our bathroom now:

It took about 3 coats of ivory paint, new slate tiles (actually ceramic but they look like slate to me), a new sink, mirror, light, toilet,  okay, I guess just about everything is new.  It’s not that costly when the room you are trying to re-do is small.  

That cabinet above the toilet is brand spanking new.  I bought that badboy on clearance for $50 when I went crazy at Bed Bath & Beyond the day I bought the vacuum and floor stuff (scroll back about 2 0r 3 posts to hear about that and the throwdown with the lady in the return line 😀 ).

It’s mostly my bathroom since I’m the only one that gets primped and ready in there, so I stocked the cabinet with my junk toiletries.

Complete with my favorite Marilyn Monroe rocks glass turned fancy cotton swab and makeup brush holders!

I put my favorite potty time photo on display.  LOL!  This was in one of my first posts!  (Check that out here for a stroll down memory lane).

Any recent renovations in your casa?

  3. Ooooh, I love your bathroom makeover ideas! D-Man and I are about to make the big move to the city, and I can’t wait to go crazy and doll-up our new place. 🙂

  4. First off – Love the bathroom! Well done. Second – adore the framed picture of you going to the bathroom on your wedding day. BIG PUFFY HEART IT! It’s a great conversation piece for sure. I’ve always wanted to come up with a little jingle to frame in our bathroom – sort of like “If you sprinkle when you tinkle etc” but for the topic of not flushing tampons down the toilet. Our rental home is on an old system and it doesn’t take kindly to that, or when I try to force half a sheet cake down the garbage disposal. HOT MESS! So I’d love to come up with something cute, clever and girlie to frame above the toilet rather than telling girls “HEY if you’re visiting with Aunt Flo don’t flush!” That’s too embarrassing!

    LASTLY – I looked through the wedding pictures – AMAZING! You both look so great and I loved reading about it!!! My big day is Oct 22nd! I can’t wait! ox

  5. Wow! What an amazing transformation! Love the personal little touches you added – I think bathrooms often lack personality and yours certainly doesn’t!

  6. I love your energy, that potty picture is just hillarious! Good job on the bathroom! Especially love the slate-looking ceramic tiles 🙂

  11. BAHAHA. That picture is hilarious. I would laugh everytime I went into your bathroom. 🙂 I do love the new look of the rest room though.
