FINALLY! It only took us about three months (which is kind of long when all we really had to do was paint, replace every valve in the bathroom, add a new faucet, stop five thousand leaks and hang a new towel rod and mirror). You can read the original post, along with everything that went wrong, HERE. In the midst of the bathroom renovation Hubs got hurt so we put the bathroom off for a little while. (We still had two bathrooms to use upstairs so it was okay.) =] The bathroom was actually finished before Thanksgiving, but I didn’t get a chance to post it before family started showing up for the holiday.
I don’t know why, but the mirror took me a LONG time to hang. It was kind of ridiculous. I screwed the nails into the wall and went to hang the mirror and found that it was SUPER crooked. But the nails on the wall were pretty much straight. It took me about an hour and a half to realize that the brackets on the back of the mirror were crooked. Stinking Kirkland’s! That mirror was on sale for a reason!!! But now that it’s hung it looks fabulous!
Let’s take one last look at the old bathroom…
And now, the *NEW* bathroom! Drumroll please!
I was slightly worried about the wall color at first because, before drying, it was kind of peach-y. It dried a really nice beige though and I love it! It’s called Sand Point from Behr (in case you were wondering). It’s also the color that’s going in the other two bathrooms (upstairs) and in the hallways both upstairs and downstairs.
I really liked the idea of using a standing toilet paper holder. We found this oil rubbed bronze one at TJ Maxx for $14.99. (SCORE!)
This is the mirror that took me way too long to hang. It looks good though, doesn’t it? It’s from Kirkland’s and it was on sale for $19.99.
It’s kind of hard to take a full picture of the bathroom because it’s at an angle.
I am loving this faucet! Aren’t you?
I love the way the bathroom turned out. All of the oil rubbed bronze fixtures look really great with the wall color. Now I just need to add some decor to the bathroom and it’ll be done done. (Actually, we still need/want to add crown molding so it’s not complete, but don’t tell anyone.) I think I want to add some floating shelves above the toilet too. I think that would look great and it would allow me to add some decor without putting a bunch of nails in the walls.
What do you think of our *new* bathroom?? Simple, but lovely!

Looks great! I like the color a lot
Thank you! I really like it too! =]
Wow!!! Such a transformation!!! Now you can bring a book and chill out in there 😉 lol. I really love everything you did! Great choices!
Thank you so much!! I love it! And it’s our first renovation project of any kind so it can only get better from here right?? And you’re definitely on the mark when you say “chill” in there because the bathroom doesn’t have a vent and it gets very cold – haha! =]
Hey there! The bathroom looks great! And your faucet is VERY similar to mine! One of these days I’ll get around to posting my bathroom – which is finished – (they both are, actually) –
Congratulations and Great Work!!
Thanks!! I am so excited that it’s finally done, well minus the crown molding that no one is supposed to know about. Yay for finished projects! I can’t say the same for my Christmas crafts… I’m looking forward to seeing your bathroom! What a weird thing to say. =]
Love the new faucet! I am really digging the black instead of silver faucets there days. Looks great.
Thank you! =] I was kind of sad when I saw that the faucet went on sale… but oh well, ha!
