Before/After - Master Bathroom Transformation!

Master Bathroom transformation - before and after pics you have to see to believe!

This reveal has been a LONG time coming but before I get too far, I want to share a little backstory with you.  Ten years ago we moved into this house and for ten years, we made the house work.  There were things we didn't like but we just lived with them.  I dreamed and planned but, honestly, I didn't have the courage to go for it.  It was a battle and the house was winning!  But, if I've learned anything during this process, it's that our house should work for us, not the other way around!  So...we created a plan, changed the plan a time or two (or three), and finally got the master bathroom I had dreamed about for so many years!

Soon I'll share the other spaces that were updated in #thegreatremodelof2017 but for now, here's one of my FAVORITE spaces - the master bathroom!

First...all the before pictures...

It's not awful but the style just wasn't us.  The wall color I affectionately referred to as "masking tape" and the fur downs over the sinks and shower made it seem dark.

While some people love terracotta tiles, this Aggie couldn't get over the burnt orange flooring!

These doors lead to our closets.  Notice the one on the left has already been painted white.  Remanents of my closet makeover!

Doesn't even look like the same bathroom!

Removing the fur downs over the sinks and the shower really opened up the space and makes it feel so much larger!  Switching from "masking tape" to Sherwin Williams Ice Cube brightened up the room and gave it the fresh new feel it deserved.

We had the burnt orange tiles replaced with 12x24 gray glazed ceramic tiles.

For the mirrors, we ordered the glass locally and had our friend Laura frame them for us.  The each measure 54"x52".

Without a shadow of a doubt, my most FAVORITE part of the whole transformation are the cabinets painted in my FAVORITE color!


You must be doing something right if you see something similar on the cover of your HGTV magazine, right?!

We chose White Carerra Quartz for the countertops and simple Delta Trinsic faucets for both sinks and the tub.

The shower is the same footprint as our old shower but by changing the glass, it seems so much bigger!  We chose 3"x6" white subway tiles for the walls and Satinglo 1"x1" black and white mosaic tiles for the floor.

While we do have green cabinets, the bathroom was starting to look a little stark since the majority of what you saw was either light gray or white so when we lucked up on this multi-color woven stool, I knew it would be perfect next to the tub!  I was hoping for a round acrylic tray but couldn't find one so this tray will work for now!

The print above the tub is from Steel Magnolia.  It's a cell phone pic I snapped during Holden's birthday road trip at Thanks-Giving Square in Dallas.  Yes, this really is a cell phone pic enlarged and put on aluminum!!!

After the renovation was over, Mike hung this chandelier that we found at Pottery Barn Kids.  I love the reflection that it makes and it's even more gorgeous at night!!!

Can you believe the transformation?  I still find myself just walking in to look around.  It definitely was worth the wait!!!
