Upstairs Bath Progress

I wish I had a true before of the upstairs bath, but I don't. I can only tell you that it had lavender walls and Waverly floral rugs & shower curtain. (Update: my sister Lynne emailed me & sent me a lovely before photo. It is below the next photo.) We painted it back in January a neutral beige because we are going to put our house on the market soon. About a month ago we tiled the floor with the same tile as the Master Bath. It was much easier to do this bath than our Master!

Here is the bathroom painted lavender.

Here's what it looked like after we painted.Uhhh, can you say BORING? This was the first room in the house to be BEIGE. So, I knew I had to do something!
Here's the lovely vinyl floor...before the tile.
Here's the tile floor installed. It looks a lot warmer and feels so good on your feet!
I would love to frame out the mirror in a dark painted color, but it would add another project (moving the light fixture down). I also have to find some interesting accessories for the counter. The artwork on the opposite wall is my next project.  The frame is going to get a fresh coat of dark paint!

I replaced the gold framed artwork with these faux stone reliefs which were in my hallway. I never really liked them there, so I painted them green & then a brown over it.
Love the cost .... $0
I also painted the little drawers that hold cotton balls & Q-tips. Here's the before:
I think it still needs something. Maybe a different color on the edge and on the little balls on the drawer fronts.
I still have a little work to do in this bath, but it has definitely come a long way!
Hope everyone had a terrific weekend!

  20. Thank you for sharing! Great pieces that turned out perfect for your space!

  21. So much better! I love that you used items you already had in your house.

    Thanks for sharing at My Backyard Eden!

  22. very nice makeover! love how it turn out! look so great!

  23. Great makeover! The painted faux stone is a great embellishment. Maybe you could use a very thin frame around the mirror and incorporate the light fixture into it? Its looks pretty good as is though!!

  24. The makeover is great. I don't know if you would be interested but, you could always put a frame around your mirror and hang another mirror over the one that you have. 2 round mirrors maybe??? Very simple and big impact. Just a thought!

  25. I love the relics you've moved from the hall, and the tile looks fantastic!

  26. Wow! It looks fantastic, great job. I'm here from Santa's Blog Hop albeit a little late but I'm your newest follower. Hope you'll visit my blog and follow me too? Thanks!

  27. Wow! Everything looks great. I love how you painted that little box. What a difference! I saw a project you might try with your mirror (and for the life of me, can't remember what blog!) They took empty picture frames and used liquid nails to adhere them directly to the mirror. It doesn't frame out the mirror on the edges, but just sits right on top. You could do 2 side by side or just one under your light fixture. You might go pick up an empty frame at Goodwill or Hobby Lobby and use poster putty to "mock up" the look on your mirror to see if I'm crazy or not! Good luck and thanks for linking up to Shop The House Sunday!
