Renovated Guest Bathroom.

Cameron and I are always looking around to see if there are any houses on the market that we love and unfortunately, there aren't any out there in the area that we want to be in. We debated on building, but decided to hold off on that for now, as we couldn't find any lots that we loved either. So plan C was to renovate more of our house since we plan to be there for another 4-5 years. The first stop was the bathroom. We originally got a bid from a contractor, but decided we could save a lot of money by doing most of the work ourselves. I'm very lucky to have a handy husband! The only person we had to hire was a plumber because we were adding an additional sink. 

Some photos that I used for inspiration...
The first picture stood out to me because the wall color was very similar to what was already in the bathroom, it had a glass front linen cabinet

The second picture I just loved the glass front linen cabinet that seems to have been re-purposed from a china cabinet or a similar type of furniture. 

(see the real before here)

Cameron tearing out the old cabinets

Cabinets and old (huge) mirror gone)

Drywall removed for new plumbing and electrical to be installed. New tile and toilet installed. 


Floor tile - Paletto Tile Distributors // Vanity - Wayfair// Faucets - Overstock // 
Mirrors - Target // Lighting - One Kings Lane // Runner - World Market //
Paint color - Sherwin Williams Sea Salt lightened by 25% // Cabinet - Nadeau

I still need to order art for the walls, decide if I want to hang anything on the window, and eventually change out the hardware on the vanity. 

I'm so happy with how it turned out though! Big shoutout to Cameron for installing all of the electrical, replacing the toilet, and laying the tile! And also dealing with my indecisiveness. 

On to the next project!
