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!)
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!
