Bathroom Remodel!

I have been waiting to show you guys the bathroom TL and I just remodeled, because we still don't have it completely finished... but I can't wait any longer!  It was a fun project for the two of us!  
(Keep in mind I am not an interior decorator - but I had to do something to this man house I moved into just a few months ago!) 

BEFORE


AFTER:


Do you have any ideas for the back of the toilet???  It's just a big blank wall!


Here are the things we changed:  We added a new faucet, new toilet paper dispenser, new mirror, and new towel rack.  We painted the walls a soft grey and added fun white decorations, a vase and flowers,  and a small table to the left of the sink.  (plus, two picture frames that do not have pictures yet!)  The manikin on the back of the toilet has potpourri that smells SO good.  We found most of the stuff at Home Goods - which is an amazing discounted decorating store!  It was so fun!  

What do you think???  Did we make it better!?  

Cheers to more redecorating!

Tracy, you and Tim did a beautiful job! Aunt Paula and I love that store! I love all the white against that new color! Looks very sharp! Now what's next?

The Socialite said...

wow, I love it! Great job! The paint color goes great with all your white decorations. Loving that mirror! ;)

The ultimate bathroom retreat is not complete without a bidet or better yet....a hand bathroom bidet sprayer. The hand sprayer gives you superior control and water volume and if the bathroom was not designed to allow for a bidet(the majority of them) it offers the convenience of installation on the existing toilet AND you don't have to get up and move every time! You will pay for it many times over in toilet paper savings. Available at www.bathroomsprayers.com Blog; http://community.greenhangout.com/_Dont-Say-It-Spray-It/blog/259546/82268.html

I think you should consider interior designing, this is solely Fashionably Fabulous! p.s. You should send the before and after photos to a decor magazine!!!

OceanDreams said...

You did a lovely job my dear. I love the flowers and the simplicity, yet elegance of your bathroom. Maybe you could put a candle stick on the back of the toilet or fill a vase full of your favorite stones? Just some ideas and good space fillers; it looks just lovely! Good work. ;)

Simone said...

I love what you did, it really looks beautiful - good job!

Ali said...

So I found your blog through OceanDreams and felt that I HAD to follow you, since we both have SJP and shoes - one right below the other, on the right side - on our blogs. Kinda meant to be, don't ya think?

Jenni said...

Beautiful!!! You should check into getting an etagere. (i'm not sure how it's spelled) It's basically a tall cabinet designed to go over the toilet that has a few shelves and maybe a cabinet. It adds some height and a place to put more pretty things. :)
I had one in my bathroom in our apartment. I loved it and it was only $40 at walmart! (You can of course find even prettier ones!) To see what mine looked like just scroll down to the bathroom photo. http://jenni-helloworld.blogspot.com/2009/04/our-home.html
Good luck!!!!
