Master Bathroom Reveal

It's out! The Cottages and Bungalows issue I've been waiting for is officially in stores! As most of you know - our master bathroom remodel is included. Wahoo! Jickie, the editor, was a pleasure to work with, and I was flattered she asked to include our bathroom in this issue. I can't wait to go out and get a copy. But since I also can't wait to show you our 'after' {and so you are no longer in suspense} I've posted the pics below. Of course I'll give you an update once I can get a copy of the magazine in my hands!

So without further adieu...

BEFORE

Peeking in...


AFTER


Original 50+ year old tile floors - they give just the right pop of color this little bathroom needs
 
Detail


Love adding fresh flowers to any and every room

Sooo much better than BEFORE :)
  
New sink and faucet

               Accessories - the crystal door knob is from my grandparents house {the house my mom grew up in}.                                   It was just sold this past year. I'm glad to have a little piece of it.
 
Love my double towel bar

AFTER


These after photos were taken by my amazing and talented friend, Candice @ Candice Lynn Photography. You can check out her work {here}. She's amazing and if your in the Nashville area -- definitely check her out.

There you have it! Our new and improved master bathroom!
What do you think?

  2. It's beautiful and classic looking. I love that you kept it fairly neutral so that you can add pops of color depending upon your mood. Great work! How do you like that sink? Also, what is that little print/framed passage above the toilet? Can't wait to see your feature in the magazine too - I'll have to try to check it out.

  10. Wow! I can't believe that is the same room. Just a little tip- we had wainscoting in the bathroom of
    our first home, and if you don't religiously run the fan when showering (and for awhile after your shower is over) the wood can expand and buckle from the moisture and the seems start to move apart. Just thought I would share, as we definitely wished that someone would have warned us. :/

  13. OH WOW! What an impressive after! You guys did a fabulous job, and I'm impressed by those floor tiles. For 50 year old tile, it's in great shape, and does add a great amount of colour to the space!

    Congrats again on the magazine feature - so exciting! :)

  54. Saw your article and was immediately drawn to the vanity. I would love to know where you bought it.

  56. You never responded regarding resources for the sink and vanity - We would love to know!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi! I'm sorry to just now respond. I didn't get these comments in my email, so I had no idea you were waiting! We got the vanity from a store called Nadeau. I hope there is one in your area -- http://www.furniturewithasoul.com/. It's a fun place to browse and they have great prices!

  58. You have such a cute home!! Excellent job!! Can you please share the paint color you used for the bathroom??

  59. I just happened across your bathroom pictures. Did you remove all of the wall tile, or just cover it with the wainscoting?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Charlie, we left the wall tile up and covered it with the bead board. It's been up for over 2 years now and holding up great! We're about to do something similiar in the guest bathroom.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hello. I know it's been quite a while, but, could you tell us how y'all did the baseboard overlay on the old ceramic tile? Most tiles of that time are curved toward the bottom, by the floor. You mentioned LOTS of Liquid Nails. If you have any additional info (that you can remember!), can you share it? There aren't a lot of "wainscoting over ceramic tile" tutorials out there. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  62. What did you do with your shower? I love the bathroom!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Great Job! I'd like to know how you covered your shower tile as well; I'm about to update an avocado green bathroom.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I have the "before" toilet & wall tiles as well as the build in towel rack and soap dish. Sadly our sink was replaced at some point with one that doesn't quite match. No way I'm getting rid of the original blue toilet/shower.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Do you have any photos of what you did with the shower? I have the same master bathroom (although in pink and grey) and I would like to do this! Just curious how you incorporated the shower/tub area

    ReplyDelete
  66. I am in desperate need of ideas on how to change the tile in the shower area. Do you have photos of how you redid the shower? Thanks.
