A few months back, I shared with you our Master Bedroom Makeover. Around the same time we also began a remodel on the adjoining Master Bathroom. It's taken me a little longer to share this space with you because it involved quite a few D.I.Y. projects. I finally was able to finish two of those projects last weekend--sewing the curtains and reupholstering the vanity seat. Here are the before and after shots...
This bathroom felt drab and dark before. Now it is a bright, sophisticated space with the spa-like feel I wanted for our bath. The tile and dark mirrors and cabinets give the room its masculine bones while the ruffled curtains, frilly pillow, and elegant accessories provide feminine touches. Not only did I want the space to be the perfect mix of masculine and feminine, but I wanted it to flow nicely with the master bedroom. I unified the two spaces with matching rugs and similar pops of blue. The cabinets were a weekend project in which I removed the drawers and doors, sanded, primed, painted, sealed, and reassembled them. Whew! It was quite a job, but it was well worth the effort. The color I used was called Bracken which was a close match to the mirrors. I tried to be as budget friendly as possible by painting the existing cabinets, repainting existing furniture, and keeping elements like the lighting, flooring, shower unit, and counters. I absolutely love how the old and new all came together to create this space!
Each morning I see this reclaimed wood sign that Jess from Nailed It Goods custom made for me! It reads, "I will be grateful for this day." It's a perfect way to rise and begin the day!
Here's a behind the scenes look...
Lydia Grace was my little helper. All the sanding and painting was really quite calming. When I do D.I.Y. projects, I feel close to my dad. These are the kinds of things I would have done with him. I painted, prayed, and thought of him. I still need to add knobs to the cabinets, but I just couldn't wait any longer to share the room with you. What do you think?
