    Love it!

    Mal and I still can’t believe this is our bathroom. Even a few weeks later, we still make comments about it. The floor alone made a huge difference. Plus, the space seems so much bigger now. Picking that smaller vanity was definitely the way to go. I’m so happy with our new bathroom. Yay!

    The new bathroom looks great! I really like the tiling. We are just about to have the tiling re-done in our bathroom, and I can’t wait. I think it will make all the difference!

    Your bathroom looks amazing!!! I’m so jealous! My boyfriend and I bought our house last October, and it was built in 1971. So we’re completely rockin’ the ALL blue tiled bathroom in the master (walls, shower, floor, sink, toilet), and Pepto pink in guest bathroom. It’s awesome! I even think our floor tile pattern is the same as yours, just shades of blue and pink.

    bathroom looks great – i really love the sink especially! we just had a ***minor*** leak in our bathroom that led to total demo so i’m just starting myself! i wonder if they make that sink in a double? hmmmm…

    Wow, that is quite an improvement. Nice work!

    Interesting, I’ve never seen anyone tile over tile before. Did you have to raise trim, cut off doors, etc?

    Reply

    Tina August 15, 2012 at 11:09 am

    Yep, we had to trim down one of the doors, but it was minor.

    The new bathroom looks awesome! The lighter colored vanity & toilet (plus the pretty shower curtain) make the space seem much more light & airy :)

    Your new bathroom is gorgeous! I love the white and then the splash of color with the new shower curtain. I hate my bathroom but I rent so I can’t really do too much with it.

    Kelly@BalancedDaily August 15, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Wow that looks awesome! Even just changing the tile would have made everything so much better, but taking on every project including a new toilet and sink/vanity makes it a completely different bathroom. And that shower curtain is awesome! It must feel so nice and clean to wash up in a brand new and different bathroom. Congrats!

    DIY is so exhausting, but so worth it in the end.

    It looks awesome! Have you looked into an “extra-high” toilet? My dad loves ours.

    I liked the retro tile floor. Vanity looks great though. Glad you left some of the old elements. :)
