Bathroom Update

I would absolutely love to share the progress of my bathroom makeover but if you’ve been following me on Instagram you already know that things haven’t gone as plan. I thought a simple tile update and keeping the same layout would make it easy but boy was I wrong.

Once my contractor started removing the old drywall and backer board, we found lots of problems that extend through 75% of the bathroom. So that even my paint update from last week is going to have to be redone. Not to mention, the bathroom renovation is now TRIPLE the cost. UGH!!

Bathroom Renovation Current Progress

While the bathroom is completely torn apart and most of the drywall including parts of the ceiling are gutted we decided to leave the space open. Originally I was going to keep the separated vanity area from the bathtub/toilet side but the silver lining in all this mess is that we get to have one big open space.

A couple of adjustments are being made to the original plans so I thought I would share a couple of mock-ups of what I’m hoping to do now with updated mood boards and product links.

The Vanity Side

Two big changes here. The Milton and King wallpaper will not be on the vanity ceiling as the entire space will now have a continuous ceiling so I will install it on the vanity wall. Second, I’m not using the black marble hexagon tile for a bathtub/shower niche so I get to use it as a new vanity backsplash! Wahoo!

My contractor is installing corner shelves in the shower surround since there will not be a niche. And a minor change, the marble shelf was too deep to go below the vanity mirror so I found a metal ledge that is the right size.

The Bathtub Side

The marble shelf that was going to be in the vanity area fits perfectly between the wall and cabinets over the toilet and will be stunning against the Clare paint black wall.

I placed one of my aunts painting in this mock up and I love it so much with the blue trim that I think I might actually hang it there. I still have lots of smaller art pieces to complete a gallery wall look around the window.

Toilet Mock Up
Toilet and Storage Side

The bathtub and surround mock-up were tricky since there is literally nothing there right now and I didn’t have a good picture to use. But you can see the gorgeous materials going in! Jeffery Court Marble surround, marble hexagon floor, Hansgrohe matte black fixtures, and custom shower curtain with Milton and King fabric and Fringe Market Trim.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the tile arrives this week so it can be installed not later than the end of next week as I have someone stripping and reglazing our cast iron tub.

A huge thanks to these wonderful sponsors!

Here’s what on the to-do list that will hopefully be finished in the next two weeks but I might have to take advantage of the extra days that the One Room Challenge allows. Eeek!

  1. Have the light switched box on one side moved to the vanity side
  2. Remove the door between the bath and vanity area and expand the walkway
  3. Repair the drywall
  4. Sand the ceiling on the vanity side
  5. Paint the vanity side, trim, door, and medicine cabinet white paint again

  7. Install cove molding on the vanity side
  8. Apply wallpaper to the vanity wall
  9. Add gold pulls to the cabinets
  10. Hang the new light fixture
