• Our New Bathroom

    August 15, 2012

    The time has come to show you guys our new bathroom!! Are you ready?

    Here’s a quick history of how it’s looked over the years:




    Here’s how the re-do went down:

    Demo day.


    Out with the old.


    In with new tile.


    Hello, new floor!

    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!

    What an awesome job! you guys totally rocked it out! the shower curtain is my favorite part….way to bring a pop of beautiful color in

    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.

    Everything looks awesome — so bright and fresh! 🙂

    Thank you! 🙂

    It looks SO good! I love it! I can’t wait to get the home ownership process over with so I can start doing stuff like this. 🙂


    Nicole August 15, 2012 at 7:57 am

    Nice work! That’s a very pretty shower curtain.


    Katie S August 15, 2012 at 8:17 am

    Looks great! Bright and fresh! Where is the shower curtain from? I love it!


    Tina August 15, 2012 at 8:23 am



    Heather C. August 15, 2012 at 8:19 am

    I love your new bathroom. Nice updating. Clean, fresh, modern, cheery. Nice job!


    Kim@hungryhealthygirl August 15, 2012 at 8:34 am

    The bathroom looks great! I love the floor and vanity. Simple and classic.


    Angela @ The Chicken Scoop August 15, 2012 at 8:40 am

    So pretty!! My hubs and I moved into our place a year ago and the bathroom is on the to-do list. Its pink and baby blue!!!


    Brandi @ Faith Fitness and Laughter August 15, 2012 at 8:45 am

    Awesome new bathroom! 🙂 Love the colors!


    Samantha Angela August 15, 2012 at 8:45 am

    Looks great!


    KiKi August 15, 2012 at 8:54 am

    Y’all did a wonderful job!


    Sarah @ Blonde Bostonian August 15, 2012 at 8:55 am

    I love what some relatively simple home repairs do to a room! Looks awesome!


    Kaitlin @4loveofcarrots August 15, 2012 at 9:11 am

    I love your new shower curtain!! so cute!


    Beks August 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Seriously want that shower curtain. I’ve never been to Marshall’s. I should check them out sometime. 🙂


    jen August 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

    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…


    Jill August 15, 2012 at 9:48 am

    Wow, that is quite an improvement. Nice work!


    Jacki Noel August 15, 2012 at 10:31 am

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


    Tina August 15, 2012 at 11:09 am

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


    Lisa @ Jogging on Coffee August 15, 2012 at 10:37 am

    Wow, it is so much brighter! Looks great 🙂


    Rebecca August 15, 2012 at 10:40 am

    It’s gorgeous! Awesome job. You’re always inspiring, one way or another! x


    Katie @ Talk Less, Say More August 15, 2012 at 10:53 am

    Beautiful! 🙂


    Liz August 15, 2012 at 11:46 am

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


    Jolynn August 15, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    Much bigger and brighter!


    Katie @ Peace Love & Oats August 15, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    A lot of work but totally worth it! Looks great!


    Erika August 15, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    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!


    Lindsay @ Lindsay's List August 15, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    it looks amazing! come to my house and work your magic….i’m not even joking!


    Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See August 15, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    The new bathroom looks awesome! Funny how much of a difference a shower curtain makes too 😉


    CampingGirl August 15, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    I love everything but especially the shower curtain!!


    Christina @ The Beautiful Balance August 15, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    LOVE the change! The room is so much brighter 🙂

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


    Teresa @ fitnwoodbine.blogspot.com August 16, 2012 at 7:30 am

    The bathroom looks beautiful. I love doing stuff like that around the house!!


    Zoe at A Single Magic August 16, 2012 at 1:55 pm

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


    Shaunna@mamas13minutemile August 29, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    Bathroom looks great. Love the shower curtain. Looks bright and clean 🙂


    Anna January 29, 2013 at 10:59 pm

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