This master bathroom makeover has been needed for a looong time. I had always put it off because someday we plan on tearing out the hall closet and incorporating it into the bathroom so we can have a tub…but that’s someday. I finally decided that I’d had enough and in a whirlwind 2-3 weeks, made over the master bathroom!
It’s a tiny bathroom. Like, TINY. Which was good because it wouldn’t take much work…one would think. haha
Here is the (painful) before.
Ignore the clutter please!
(That was a whole different struggle after I redecorated…decluttering and streamlining the bathroom to have less on the counters.
I did win that battle though!
Pretty boring and had never been changed since the house was built in 1978. ugh.
I started with paint. I chose
So the vanity (and countertop blech) were staying for now.
So. back to the painting!
The wall color is Swiss Coffee from Kelly Moore and is my favorite white! I used the last bit of it leftover from the
Painting went smoothly for the vanity! I cleaned it but didn’t sand it…it was kind of a get it done quick job since I only expect it to last for another few years. And it’s not the best quality so I wasn’t concerned too much about it.
Those hinges didn’t bother me until I had the hardware on…I may go back and paint them later! Can you believe I’d never had hardware on this vanity? The things we can get used to, right? Here are the
The FLOORS!! I am in love with how they turned out. At first I considered painting them. Rory kinda nixed that and I was a little intimidated by it too. Then I randomly came upon the
They specialize in floor and wall stickers that can be placed over existing walls & flooring! I did some research on their site and was SO excited because they seemed to be the perfect thing for my coved floors. Basically I needed them to be more flexible than standard linoleum tiles to move with the floor up the wall. One of the awesome things about their website is you can
They have a tile calculator as well to help you order the right amount! I ended up needing 4-25 packs of the 8″ or 20 cm size…with about 8-10 leftover. With the coved floors it was tricky to calculate but I got it done!
The tile pattern I chose was the
Which….I am in love with! The small size of the room makes it perfect for a fun patterned floor. I plan to do a similar floor in my laundry room too when I move on to that!
Let’s talk installation: it was not as hard as I thought it might be! I had some tricky spots because of the coved floors though, and if I’d had a flat floor like most people (our home is so high maintenance with it’s weird 1970’s style elements lol), it would have been even easier!
Honestly, it was kinda fun to put in! I started at the door and worked my way from there to the back of the room, and creating templates for around the toilet and doorjams etc, was a cinch. I used the paper backing of the tile so it was the right size and used that to make the template. The tiles cut easily with scissors-no problem! Then you just peel off the back and pop them on the floor!

After removing the medicine cabinet and painting, I went for clean simple lines with some floating shelves!
That I built. ALL BY MYSELF.
Ok, Rory helped a little, since I don’t have four arms and the capability of holding shelves together and nail gunning at the same time. I used
I filled the shelves with things I love! First, a Kate Spade glass I thrifted and repurposed into a vase with some billy buttons from Trader Joe’s in it!
I also grabbed these

On the top shelf, I grabbed
Grabbed a cute black frame from Home Goods and popped some more meaningful art into it!
My sister water colored this painting of the Oakland Temple, where Rory and I were married. LOVE!
I added a faux succulent plant in a concrete planter from Target and called it good with the shelves!
I had this
Let’s swing over to the top of the vanity now! I removed the large squareish mirror and replaced it with this
I nabbed this new
I fell in love with
This was what kicked off the makeover, honestly. All I wanted was a
I made this sweet and simple jewelry rack with my friend Alisa, and they turned out so cute! (she made one too!)
It’s a simple shelf, with gold hooks in the bottom for necklaces.
I loved that I could place my ring holder and a few small dishes from Home Goods on top for my bracelets and earrings!
Whew you made it though this post! Congrats!
