Bathroom Reveal

27 Apr

I know it’s been a bajillion years since I posted about my bathroom reno….and it’s been done for half a bajillion years….AND I realized that I hadn’t posted pictures of the finished product!  Er, 98% finished product.  Anyway, when we left off I had laid the new flooring.  Since then I’ve:

1.  Painted the walls!

2.  Installed a gorgeous new glass top vanity!

3.  Boyfriend hung up a bunch of shelves for me.  Thanks sweetie-pie!

4.  Got a cool new shower caddy.

5.  Cool new shower caddy didn’t fit my giant shampoo bottle.

6.  Got an even cooler and even newer shower caddy and gave other cool less-new shower caddy to boyfriend.

7.  Ordered a sweet chandy for 75% off on http://www.homedepot.com to add some mood lighting – with a low watt bulb to boot so my eyes don’t melt every morning.

Yeah, yeah, the mirror is still brown.  You noticed.  It’ll soon be big and beautiful and I’ll be forced to put in a brighter bulb so I can admire myself in it better.

Just to remind you, this is what it looked like way back when:

We’ve come a long way, baby!!

What’s still on the list besides a new mirror?  So glad you asked!

1. I want some either faux or fo-real crown molding around the room – but to do that we need to finish painting the rest of the master bedroom, since it opens into the vanity area of the bathroom, so that’s at the bottom of the list for now. {Just in case you were wondering why I hadn’t been more careful about cutting in around the ceiling.}

2. As long as we’re ragging on me painting the ceiling, it’s totally ok because there was a minor SNAFU in the drywalling front where we had to cut out and re-texure the ceiling, and there is NO MATCHING that 1984 original white up there!  Why is that good?  Because, it gives me a reason to hire our painters from work {discount!} to come paint my ceilings a pretty, airy, lighter shade of the bedroom wall color to cover up that small oops moment.

3.  Since I raised the shower curtain rod to super-heights, I actually have to make a shower curtain.  Let me rephrase, my mom is making us a shower curtain.  In fact, nearly 100% of the work thus far in this bathroom {and everywhere else in my house} was done with her own two hands.  That woman could build an ark with a spoon and a two by four.  Thanks mom!!!

Anybody know where to find a sweet mirror?  I do.  Everyfreakingwhere.  I CANNOT DECIDE!!!!!
