As I mentioned before, especially with the kitchen, we like to complete things in phases. Basically, we do projects when we have the money to do said projects. Sometimes, that means we’re able to do a couple basic things to increase functionality and appearance, while not completely solving the problems within a space. That being said, we were able to add some storage solutions to the Master Bathroom and make a little bit more sense of the whole trim situation. Oh, and upgraded the light too.
Remember when I posted our mood board and inspiration photo back in November? Well. I think we got pretty darn close to that. With a few tweaks, of course. Oh, and minus the crystal chandelier. And chair. (Who has room for a chair in their bathroom?) And also, there’s something to be said for thousand-dollar cameras and professional photographers. Ahem.
The top half of the wall is painted using Behr (Satin) color matched to Martha Stewart’s Gabardine & the lower half (and trim throughout the room and the whole stinkin house) is Sherwin Williams’ Extra White in Semi Gloss.
I bought this Martha Stewart Vintage Gold paint a while ago (OMG I JUST SAW THIS IS DISCONTINUED. MUST GO RESTOCK.), and get super-excited any chance I have to use it. (Like when I used it on the ceiling in the Master Closet.) Of course I wanted to use it in the vanity nook.
Most of the shelving things we already owned. The shelves themselves are from Ikea, and I just painted them white. It’s nice to have a spot where extra towels can sit, and a spot for J’s beard-grooming things to charge. (MUST. CARE. FOR. BEARD.)
I used a couple of old white curtain panels to sew together a ruffle-y new shower curtain. Don’t ask me how this came together. I don’t know. And we scored this awesome rug at an Estate Sale a while ago.We’d still like to change out the pedestal sink for something with a bit of storage, and take up the linoleum and add some tile (with a heated floor, because my feet).
Of course, the light that we just talked about last time. And because it’s awesome, the door was all… “Heeeey, you’re not really done with this project yet”. And removed itself from the top hinge. Thanks, door. Overall, this transformation cost arouuuund $100.
