6th Street Design School today!!
Here are some new lovelies I picked up this week.
I love this $15 rug I found at Home Goods. I’ve been loving navy and white lately.
Also found this chevron rug for the bathroom for $12! The colors go perfectly in here.
We finally got a West Elm near us and they were having a 15% off sale, so Monday I popped in and picked up some things for the guest bath, like this monogram hand towel.
and these diamond towels as well as the shower curtain, on sale of course!
I love to find deals and use coupons any chance I get (my poor husband)
Have you scored any great deals lately?
Will you shop at a specific store just because you have a coupon? I do!
We did it! We successfully remodeled our guest bathroom in just over a month.
Special thanks to my amazing husband for his hard work, late nights and determination.
I’m in awe of you.
So in case you forgot, this is what we’ve been living with for the past 5 years.
and now for the amazingness!!
So happy we went with a pocket door, it completely opens up the space.
Paint color is Benjamin Moore Horizon 1478
Love this mirror and it was such a steal at Lowes
We went with a ceramic subway tile because I just love how the light reflects off of it. Plus it’s super durable and easy to clean.
To add a some glamour to this tiny bathroom we opted for this gorgeous crystal chandelier that I found on Overstock
So there you have it, our little guest bathroom got a brand new look. I seriously couldn’t be happier and can’t wait for baby girl to take her first bath in here.
Wow I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since my last post.
I apologize for such a long absence, it’s just been so crazy over here.
We (mainly the husband) have been working on the bathroom every night and weekend to get it done before the baby shower on July 1st! yikes! We have one week left and still have a good amount to get finished.
paint bathroom & hallway walls and trim
seal tile and grout
install shower trim
install pedestal sink
install vanity and chandelier light
finish electrical (fan, switches etc)
install door hardware
install towel and tissue fixtures
Woo!! Did I forget anything?
Anyway here are some progress shots so you can see what we’ve been up to.
We decided to open up the wall to install a pocket door, which has made a huge difference for the space.
Here it is all framed up and installed. I love it!
So here we got the tub in, insulation in, and are starting to drywall.
The drywall going up has made a huge difference, now we could really visualize it!
Day 2 of tile install! (I’m saving the finished tile for the reveal)
And now today has been all about paint, Left to Right: Wickham Gray, Horizon and Moonshine all Benjamin Moore colors. We actually already primed the walls, tinted to Horizon so that’s why you can barely see it.
We are painting tonight so I’ll surprise you with the color I chose ; )
Oh and by the way I’m 30 weeks as of yesterday! Yeee!!
Here’s a belly shot from week 29
Hope you all enjoy your weekend! Wish us luck on wrapping this bathroom up! My poor husband will be busy all weekend ; )
This is what we are currently workin’ with
Well we decided to get a couple of bids for the plumbing work, because with our day jobs, the nursery, baby shower and of course the baby herself coming in less than 4 months, we decided it was just too much for the husband to tackle.
So while I wait for the plumbing to be done, I started looking at tile options.
Love the bathroom over at Life Begins at Thirty Right?
and these beauties found on Pinterest.
So I went ahead and ordered a sample of this gorgeous tile.
1×1 Polished Carrera Marble Hexagon mosaic.
Seriously loving this for the floor!
I wonder how marble will hold up on the floor though. I’ve been so afraid to ever use it in my house because it’s not as durable as porcelain or ceramic.
Do you have or know anyone with marble floors? How do they hold up?
We (meaning the husband) finally took a hammer and crowbar to the old bathroom!
I took some quick shots before he got started in case you forgot how horrible this bathroom looked.
While the husband got started, I documented.
Bye bye ugly ass toilet! Ewww I forgot about the old linoleum we used to have in there.
Both layers of linoleum came up fairly easy and surprisingly our sub floor was in pretty good condition.
Now for the fun part! Breaking tile! I so wish I could have been in on this.
And this is where we ended off, a pretty good start for our first day, which was actually just 2 hours.
The plan is to have it completely gutted by the end of this weekend.
Not that I don’t already have enough going on, I started thinking about the guest bathroom. Which we plan to gut early next year.
I’m loving white and lots of it. I’m so drawn to all white bathrooms its ridiculous.
I would also love to throw some sparkle in there, along with some stripes.
I’m loving this shower
or I could go bold with a chevron tiled floor
And of course I’ll definitely be adding a glamorous mirror.
Anyway, I really can’t wait to get started on the bathroom, and document the journey.
But first things first, the kitchen backsplash. I just got some samples from The Tile Shop, so hopefully one of them will be the winner!
I’ve update our House Tour page!
Enjoy your weekend! We are off for a little “camping trip” at my friends ranch.
Hi All! It’s Monday, wow I wish it was Friday already. Hope you’re with me on that one.
I realized I forgot to share with you the little revamp I did on the guest bathroom.
I pulled this together the week before the Bridal Shower, because I knew I would be mortified if the guests used this bathroom in it’s existing condition.
Well after a couple of trips to the fabric store and Home Goods, I came up with a quick and easy solution to make this tiny bathroom have a little charm.
First thing I did was add this cute basket and displayed some lovely toilet paper. I know some people might not be into displaying their TP, but I think it works perfectly in such a small space with zero storage.
I was trying to think of ways to hide the ugly pipes under the sink and after a couple of hours of googling, I decided a sink skirt would work the best in such a short amount of time. Here is my take on it, not perfect but it did the trick!
Soooo… what do you think? Came out pretty cute huh? I really can’t wait to gut this bathroom and start fresh.
All it takes is one positive test for the husband to get busy on it…if you know what I mean.
