I’m so excited to finally be able to share the final results of our daughter’s bathroom with you! This bathroom is in her bedroom, some people would call this a “Jr. Suite” or “Princess Suite” which is what I prefer.
A little throw back to when we purchased this house and I know this may not look too bad to some of you but those are boats on the curtains and the wall paper pattern is gold rope, not our style at all.
Off with the wallpaper, out with the flooring, blinds, mirror and light fixtures!
In go the wall planks, granite vanity top, 1” hexagon black and white floor tile!
This renovation was a pretty easy (at least compared to the Master Bathroom) remodel. The final cost for the remodel was $1,340, which for us was a very good investment of our time and money.
BTW I love this shower curtain! It’s from Bed, Bath & Beyond and has a mesh top which allows the light to filter into the shower area and it also has a built in curtain liner (just below the mesh) that snaps off!! I customized the curtain by sewing the teal band at the bottom, but the quality of the curtain is great! I also installed the rod just under the crown molding which makes the height of the room feel like 10’ instead of 8’… don’t know how but it does!
Filled with succulents and moss, this planter will get plenty of light I just need to remember to water it!
The granite vanity top, including sink, at $410, but well worth the investment!
Hands down the winner for this category was by far the floor, from demo, to layout, to installation it was a shit-ton bunch of man/woman-hours that I’d rather have spent doing just about anything else, but the finished product makes such a dramatic impact that I will try and forget the pain… kind of like childbirth I guess
The floor of course! It just sucks that it also won “Greatest Time-Sucker” too… we chose to use a low profile aluminum transition strip from carpet to tile here so as not to distract from the tile itself.
Making the café curtain was the most fun for me, it totally wasn’t hard and it makes such a cute statement in the room that I so enjoyed installing it too (because that was a BREEZE)!
Sorry guys, but this one is a tie between the nail gun (compressor type) and the hammer drill, without either of these this project would have been much more difficult to complete and I probably wouldn’t have demoed the floor!
If My Budget was Limitless
If money was no object I would have taken out the tub and linen nook and installed a large tiled shower in their place. I would have also installed a frameless rolling shower door and I would have clad the walls with a white subway tile, but the floor I would have done in a 3” hexagon similar to the master bathroom. I also would have replaced the vanity with a taller one with better storage options. And while I’m dreaming I would have hired out all of the contracting work, just saying that’s the no fun part for me I’d much rather design and decorate but we can’t all be that lucky Still I’m glad we could do what we did, both physically and financially, we’re very very happy with the end results, but a girl can dream right?!
Thanks for taking this little renovation trip with me!
Until next time!
