I’m embarrassed to say that more than several parts of my home, at one time or another, have looked like a crack-house. This master bathroom is no exception! Who ever thought that putting stripes and floral borders was HOT?? I guess someone, at some point, was rockin’ it!
This project took me about a month. Hubby and our 5-year-old were out of the country and it was a “While You Were Out” sort of surprise. He loved it!P.S. Sorry for the poor pics. I only had my cell phone camera!
Ghetto, I know, but we lived with a shower curtain on our bathroom window for at least 8 months before this mini renovation!
Now the bathroom feels like a spa! I bought the curtain rod for about $15 from Ross, and I made the simple, white curtains. The art above the toilet is my own (sorry for no close-ups!!), and I bought the little glass shelf from Ikea. The little white stand is (what else??) a thrift store find, painted white.
The vanity was desperately in need of some primer and white paint!
|BEFORE: Yucky old, outdated, dark cabinet……..|
|BEFORE: Sanded and ready for primer.|
|BEFORE: See the brown paper bag areas?? The walls had to be skimmed to repair damage by wallpaper removal.|
|AFTER: A place to sit and think and take in the serene environment 🙂|
|AFTER: I decided on towel hooks instead of a towel bar, with our initials over them, so we never mix up towels 🙂 (Kwasi said he does not want to smell like a woman). LOL|
|AFTER…………Beautiful picture mirror, curtain rod, and simple curtains that I made myself!! Not to mention a nice, white painted cabinet, and a painted old plant stand.|
|BEFORE: This was the hot mess that I started to find as I started to break away pieces of what I thought was real tile. I still can’t believe I took on this part of the project! It was a LOT of work…..|
|BEFORE: What the wall looked like after removing the paneling….YIKES.|
|BEFORE: The other side of the wall didn’t look good, either, but at least, not as bad.|
|AFTER: Plastered….primed….painted…..and caulked!|
|AFTER: The other side.|
