Our house is 14 years old! We bought the house when it was a year old. So we didn’t get to choose the flooring, walls etc. I loved a lot of it, but there were a few things that I have never loved. I have to admit a mini guest bathroom makeover has been in the cards for quite some time.
This is what the bathroom looked like before the makeover. Not bad. But I hated the floor. I knew it could be so much better!!!
It started with this tile.
Since I had painted black over the most horrendous mustard wallpaper when we moved in, the black and white tile was perfect!
Yes, I said black.
And it’s still one of my most favorite changes in the house.
Our intent was to just replace the tile.
Okay, I know some of you are laughing right now.
You know me too well!
I fell in love with this tile.
Isn’t she beautiful?
I was a little nervous that it would be too busy for such a small space.
But my BFF Rox encouraged me to take a leap of faith.
And boy am I glad that she did.
I can not tell you how much I love it!
Now here’s where the mini guest bathroom makeover really begins.
The other thing in this room that I hated was the countertop/sink.
Molded marble shell sink.
A sink with cracks in it.
I had seen a Youtube tutorial from Stonecoat Countertops on how to make your own epoxy countertops that looked like marble.
Not only does it look good but it’s super durable too.
I was hooked.
This is the countertop we made.
What do you think?
I promise to share the start to finish project with you soon!
Of course, we had to buy a new sink and faucet!
I decided to go with a simple, clean white vessel sink and a chrome faucet.
I also bought a new shabby chic shower curtain in white.
And replaced the old blue hydrangeas with some pink peonies for a little color.
What does the room look like now?
I love the tile so much that I hate to put down the pretty new rugs.
I was so busy admiring the new stuff that I totally didn’t see where the cat messed up the toilet paper!
Make me wonder what else I’ve missed.
I still have a few things left to do.
Add some accessories and hang art on the walls.
As soon as I have that done, I promise to share.
Until next time….
