The bathroom wasn't all bad it just simply wasn't our style. I wanted a calming, cleaner looking bathroom. So with a minimal budget we were able to make quite the transformation. Paint and lighting made all the difference. We painted the cabinets BM Cloud White and walls in BM Elmira white like our previous' home Master Bathroom. It is still a work in progress as we plan to eventually gut the shower and get new sinks and faucets. And hopefully frame the large Vanity Mirror down the road.. Oh the lists I have for my hubby.. See our simple yet dramatic changes below..
Not a bad space before. I just really found the olive tone earthy walls looked a little dirty for our bathroom. I wanted something fresh to brighten the room up. So we painted the walls in Benjamin Moore Elmira White.
See the fresher look already ;)
The vanity lights were replaced with these simple classic style, chrome with linen shades from Walmart believe it or not. The cabinets were painted Benjamin Moore Cloud white and then I just added my go-to girly Crystal knobs from Restoration Hardware.
My vanity chair is a Rattan chair that we used at our previous kitchen desk.. I was just so glad to have a spot to use it at this house. The Rattan chair is from Restoration Hardware and to keep it comfy I use the RH seat cushion along with a faux grain sack pillow that I made.
I added simple rope to a round mirror to enhance the natural / coastal vibe.
The soaker tub is great as it has these relaxing massaging jets. The windows are covered in white shutters which allow for tons of privacy when we choose.
For lighting: We added a off white vintage candelabra light in the centre of the ceiling above the tub. On either side of the candelabra the previous owners had already installed pot lights. I am a fan of actual light fixtures like chandeliers above the tub but the hanging vintage candelabra gives the look. Eventually we plan to plank the ceiling above the tub.
On both sides of the tub were these odd mirrored drywall inserts.. They were never really used before so we added simple pine shelves from Ikea. They hold all our pretty bathroom eye candy now.
Above the toilet I hung our Pottery Barn train rack. Its great as a shelf to hold extra coastal decor and the handy rod holds extra bath towels.
The wooden B A T H sign was made by me. The hot bath sign was made by this Etsy shop.
The shower is in need of an update. I like the fact that the tiles are at least a simple white! We plan to renovate it sometime this year. Inside the shower we have a bamboo shower seat.
I found this great vintage wooden cabinet with chicken wire door at a antique shop a few years back. Its the perfect decor piece to add character to a builder bathroom. Inside is mostly decorative lotions, soaps and candles. The little Paris Vanity chair is an extra spot to sit when we bathe our daughter. I made these great faux grain sack pillows from leftover Ikea Ritva Curtain fabric, green frog tape, a foam brush and Annie Sloan French Grey chalk paint. I just loved the way they turned out, I made 2 more for our living room on a muslin material with white stripes.
