After six short weeks, I am so proud to present you with our before and after downstairs bathroom (affectionately called our powder room even though it has a full shower.) It turned out even prettier than I ever dreamt! Full sources below.
And The Ugly Duckling before…
In the past six weeks, we have been busy doing the following:
- Painting all trim
- Painting all walls
- Installing bead board and painting
- Making a DIY Roman Shade
- Installing budget friendly art
- Building a recessed medicine cabinet
- Fixing the toilet (well technically, it was my amazing father-in-law who fixed all the plumbing!)
- Replacing vent covers, outlets, and light switches, and installed toilet paper holder!
- Spray painting bamboo ladder for Turkish Towels
We started off with this inspiration:
Which turned into this…
Next week, I promise to show you inside the recessed medicine cabinet that my handy hubby E designed and built all by himself! Spoiler alert: we had to build around a few studs so it is a little tinier than originally planned but works great!
We ended up keeping the original sink and toilet which aren’t my favorites but they look so much better with some new paint on the walls! Doing a real renovation on a budget calls for some creativity and accounting, and when it isn’t necessary it isn’t happening!
And with a horrible cough, and cold, and Election Hangover I am off to bed. But make sure to check up on all the other amazing reveals at Calling It Home! If you want to catch up on the last six weeks check out my weekly progress below.
