Master Bathroom Before & Progress

I know, I know. I just showed you my office space phase 1, and now here I am showing you "ugly master bathroom" (well, it's not so ugly now..thank God!)

That's just how we roll around here. We go from one space to the other instead of concentrating on one room at a time.

It's just our way of spicing things up.

So please, bear with me.

I mentioned how ugly this bathroom was in my 2014 Project Goals.

I wasn't over exaggerating. And now I can show you.

Well kind of. You see, I didn't take any "before" pictures because I had already done that last year. Problem: I can't find them on my old laptop.

But I did find these I took before we put in our new light fixtures last year:

Stunning, huh?
Builder grade cabinets, builder grade mirror, builder grade light fixture...you get the picture. EVERYTHING builder grade!! Yuck!

The only things upgraded in this photo are the faucets. They used to be, you guessed it, standard builder grade.

In the mirror's reflection you can see the ugly shower curtain I picked up at Walmart over 3 years ago and the double towel bars next to it. Very strange set up for towel bars, if you ask me. I've always hated this feature.

Now, onto the progress! I love me some progress, don't you?!

This is just as I started to paint the walls in Martha Stewart's Nimbus Cloud (Satin) color matched to Behr.

Yes, this is what the beginning of progress always looks like...a mess!

In this picture the walls are all painted and you can even get a glimpse of what I've done with the shower curtains and towel bar situation! 

Why am I showing you this random wall? Because it use to house a random towel bar.
Seriously? A towel bar by the toilet?

I was one happy girl tearing that thing apart from my wall!

And these are the pretty light fixtures we put in last year (and by we I mean the wonderful hubby-this girl is going nowhere near wires!)

You can get a better look at the paint in this picture. It's the perfect light gray!
The perfect neutral for a bathroom, I think.

I also plan on putting up some shelves above the toilet very soon!!
Storage that doesn't take up any floor space is always a HUGE plus!

Ahhh...at last, my favorite parts thus far!

I picked up this lovely shower curtain at Target. It's white and has a blue, green and gray floral print.

I also spray painted my basic white shower curtain rod a metallic silver!
That's what happens when you don't have time to run to the store and love spray paint!

I also made this rustic towel holder (similar to this one) with some scrap wood and hooks from Hobby Lobby.

Way better than the double towel bars!!

And if I don't have to fold towels I do a happy dance.

The most recent change has been painting the cabinets white. 

I love white cabinets! I painted our guest bathroom cabinet's white, too! They're just so clean and fresh looking. Like a breath of fresh air.

Now I can enter my bathroom without cringing!

So what's next for this master bathroom?

Here's a list of what's left to do:

1. Add some fabulous hardware to those newly painted cabinets.

2. New light fixture (maybe a chandelier?) above the shower (it's a basic round one right now).

3. Add some plaques with hooks next to each side of the vanity so we can hang our hand towels instead of placing them on the counter.

4. Add shelves above toilet.

5. Wall art!

6. Frame the mirror.

I'm excited to see how this bathroom looks in the end! I think it looks fab so far!

What's your favorite update to give a bathroom a fresh look?

Looking good! I'm obsessed with gray, such a clean neutral! Also loving the new shower curtain and towel hooks -- and I'm excited to see what you come up with for the shelves! :)

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thanks, Lindze! The shower curtain and hooks are my favorite additions so far!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

It's looking good, Selene! I love the new shower curtain! We spray painted the shower curtain rod and towel bars in our guest bath too and they've held up great! I think you chose the perfect paint color too. :)

Meg Sluyter said...

Hi Selene! It looks great so far, I can't wait to see what else you do. The cabinets look great too, amazing what a difference a little bit of paint can make, isn't it?

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

The white cabinets instantly

Thanks! I've always loved white cabinets for that reason!

It is looking really good. I love how big your bathroom is. I have a jack and kill bathroom and all 3 sections are tiny. I hopped over from Dream to Reality linky.

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thanks MomMaven!! It really is a blessing!!
