master bathroom reveal

We've been busy! I have to say although there were several bumps in the road, we were still surprised with how fast this one went. Maybe, after three years of diy-ing and being thiiis close to selling, we're getting the hang of this thang. Go figure.

Our realtor had the brilliant idea of making the vanity area the same color as the bedroom so that it seemed more of an extension of that than the actual bathroom part. We did have to remove the carpet though due to stains in the vanity section. You can read more about the peel and stick vinyl planks here

We still have some things to do like painting the doors a fresh coat of white and replacing the brass doorknobs with ORB ones. And there's a vent missing that I need to spray paint. I know between the floor, toilet seat, and bamboo curtain that it's getting pretty orange in there but that's just how it turned out. And that's how it shall remain. 

We removed the door to the linen closet and the door to the vanity area. Both were the folding kind. In that small space we had four doors and it was making me insane. I know its not everyone's cup of tea but oh, how it works for us! We would even slap a curtain on the closet door if we didn't plan on leaving. We also have saved all of the closet doors to the house in the attic for the future homeowner. We know not everyone is an open storage kind of person.

Here's some close and personal photos. Not the best quality since that room get's zero natural light! 

The mirrors are Molger by Ikea. I wanted one large rectangle one with the same ledge but I think that one must've been discontinued. I was really nervous to do one light with two mirrors. We wanted two lights and two mirrors but alas, it wasn't in the cards but we're satisfied. I'm in love with that candle from Target. Forget the scent, the colors are all spot on. The miniature pottery? Courtesy of my awesome uncle that made them for me when I was young. I love finally having them on display. 

I wanted to go crazy on styling but I just tried to use what we already have for the most part. I bought the towel holders, floor mat, toilet seat, and candle exclusively for this room. We're missing a hand towel and bar right now. We have options but I'm just not in love yet. 

This is the light we used. We needed something long enough for the scale of that wall and it was really affordable. We're surprisingly happy with it and used the reveal lights with it.

Yes, we have a bamboo curtain. We have taken the hippie train to hippie town and we couldn't be happier. We snagged ours on Ebay, and they're harder to come by than you'd guess. You can find the towel holder here. I have to also do a full tutorial on the ampersand sign. But in the meantime, check out the photos I took before we moved in:

That's my idea of editing really yellow non-white-balanced photos. But not enough editing can take care of those shoe decals on the wall. Oy.


  1. SO so much better than before and like Cassie, I love the wall color a lot. A really awesome job!

  2. Great styling in this room. It has a good vibe. Those little pots by your uncle are too cool. Isn't it funny how the little gestures people make in life can have such a lasting impact. I want to be the person who gives my kids little pots. -Caitlin

  3. Looks so great! I love the color and all the little touches. Embracing hippie dippie is totally working for you!!

  4. Love the wall color! It's beautiful!

  5. I love that you used your bedroom color in the bath too! It looks amazing with the new floors! It looks/feels like a bohemian spa! Great job!

  6. Love the mirrors! The wood tone and ledge looks so great in the space. The before and after is crazy!

  7. Those mirrors are amazing! The wood looks so good with the wall color. Nice work!

  8. Oh my gosh! Love! I am especially drawn to that paint color and I adore your jewelry storage. So awesome:)!

  9. What an improvement. I love that towel hanger in bamboo too. Looks great. What a transformation.


Drop me a line! I monitor all comments just to make sure we keep it fun and light :]
