my bathroom makeover


So head over heels in love with the whole bathroom now. Details explained below.

So happy with everything. Here is the list of updates we made:
New vanity & sink // professionally installed
Paint // wall color is Behr Semi-gloss Dark Granite and ceiling is Behr Silver Drop
Added an exhaust fan/ceiling light combo
New light fixture above mirror  // attached underneath shelving
Took off cabinet doors and painted shelving
Changed all outlets to black outlets
New *vintage* mirror // found at flea market in Denver
New towel hooks and bathroom accessories
Shopping list // Metal letters // Print // Tissue box cover // Baskets // Rug

It seems so simple in list form, but adding the exhaust fan and new lighting above the sink were nightmare projects (because the house is almost 100 years old). Most else was pretty straight forward. Originally I bought this beautiful bathmat, but sadly it wouldn't fit. The vases with greenery idea I found here while googling wall decor ideas. In the spring I can switch them out with pretty yellow flowers. The new vanity is my favorite part, and makes the tiny bathroom feel much more roomy. I can't get over how much more fun it is to wash my hands. A close second is the incredible mirror (originally brown), I love how it covers the entire wall space.

Glad to share with you on this happy Wednesday! Any ideas to add more form or function?

It looks SO good! I think I have mirror envy! I think that might be my favorite part!

February 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmy

Thanks you two! Inspiring people and giving envy was my original goal ;)

Yeah that mirror was SUCH a great find. We trucked it in my honda 13 hours knowing that it was HUGE and obviously there is not an inch of wall to spare. Only by moving the light fixture could it work but I am SO glad we did.

i really like the extra storage you have at the top w/the white shelving! where did you get those? thx.

It is BEAUTIFUL! I almost fainted when I saw the whale tissue box cover. :)

February 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJoanna

So jealous of your mirror! I was hoping I could run out and buy one too . . . It is fabulous. Great find!

@holly That shelving was installed before we bought the home, so I have no idea of the source. It seems like basic wood cabinet, so maybe the local hardware store? Sorry I'm not much help!

looks great...hard to believe that's the same mirror!

And I'm in love with your bathroom! The mirror reminds of a Hollywood-style dressing room. I can't believe that you found that at a flea market. Great job with the bathroom makeover. bathroom remodeling nyc

I like how you used every available space in the bathroom. By adding extra lighting above the mirror, you brighten up the room even more. The lovely mirror also reflects all the light, picking up the wall color and pattern. Great wall color by the way. garage doors perth

Whoa! That's a huge difference to your bathroom. The details are pretty awesome! I'm inspired by that vintage mirror... I've to get one for our bathroom too! LOL! And that yellow whale-tissue box is cool. Where did you buy that?

Nolan, I completely missed the whale tissue holder. It is actually a handcrafted wooden sperm whale with a tissue releasing blowhole. It's both functional and a real work of art. concrete perth

Can you please tell me where you found the hardware to hang the 3 glass greenery vases...I totally love the idea and have seen it on pinterest a few times but never info about how to hang Thanks

January 4, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCynthia H

@Cynthia H Thanks for asking! I just tied a bit of string around the top of the vase, then made a loop which is hung on a nail in the wall. About as simple as it comes! Hope that helps!
