Our bathroom mini reno is done!
Here are two before pics of the bathroom before we changed it:
Ever since we moved into our house, I hated the cheap, ceramic tile covering the bathtub. Not to mention it seems to match perfectly with the floor. It's too much peachy tile!! Here's a before pic of the tub.
I wanted moulding around the tub, painted white, with travertine tile on the top surface around the tub. Ta-da!! Here's the after:
Here's a closeup of the wonderful new old-timey clawfoot tub faucet we bought:
Don't you just love it?!
Then we removed the builder's grade lights and added our own. These were all purchased online at Overstock.
Chandelier over tub:
Chrome light over wardrobe:
Here's our wonderful fixture with fabric shades for the bargain price of $57. Score!! The shades are a blue-gray color. Although I'm not sure if this color goes in the bathroom, I am keeping the shades this color for now. Maybe in the future I'll recover them in a different fabric.
The lovely valance is also an Overstock purchase. I added two pieces of ribbon to the bottom (I attached them with velcro).
The literary rug is also from Overstock. Love it!!
I love the pewter wardrobe pulls from ebay. They were about $4.50 each. They are the old-fashioned mock key with backplate.
The wardrobe is from Ikea. It's a PAX Birkeland wardrobe (for two of the doors) and a mirror door on the third. I love the wardrobe space. The whole reason I wanted the second vanity taken out of the bathroom was so I could use it for closet space. Much better!
The toilet area:
We put a frame around the mirror.
We just cut moulding and attached it with command strips. I used 6 of the small pieces on the long ends of the mirror and 4 pieces on the short ends. My husband notched out on the back of the moulding where the mirror clips were so they wouldn't interfere with us being able to lay it flat against the mirror.
The ottoman is from Kmart (Newport ottoman). It's a taupe color.
The wall paint color is Benjamin Moore crisp khaki.
I still want to replace the shower tile, but that's a project for the future. This is a very relaxing place now. It may not be everyone's taste, but it's my taste. I am satisfied with the result.
