Guest Bathroom Makeover {Reveal}

Just after Thanksgiving, I started on a major home improvement project – remodeling the downstairs guest bathroom!  If you didn’t see the start of the project, you can catch up {here}.  While the handyman completed construction before Christmas, I hadn’t yet shared the final result with you because I wasn’t quite done decorating.  But I am now and can’t wait to show you how it turned out!

You might recall, the bathroom started out as a builder-grade creation straight out of the ’80s, complete with cultured marble countertops and shower walls, brass everything, fluorescent lighting, and a mismatched patched flooring.

Downstairs-Bath-Before-2

 

My inspiration piece was an old dresser that I found at the antique fair that I wanted to use as a vanity.  The overall look that I wanted to achieve was a mixture of warm and cool tones paired with contemporary finishes and antique accents.

Here’s what it looks like now!

It is *so* much brighter and as a result, feels so much bigger!  We removed the old vanity and countertop, along with the wall mirror, fluorescent lighting soffit, and toilet.  The new vanity isn’t quite as long as the old but actually offers more storage since it’s a bit taller and the drawers are deep.

The old floor was replaced with 12×12 marble and we added matching subway tile in the shower.  I also asked my handyman to add a decorative panel that drops down from the crown moulding to hide the shower curtain tension rod.

Inside the shower there is a shampoo and soap recess and while it took forever to figure out how to align it properly with the wall, I love the end result.

The shower curtain itself hides behind this decorative, ruffled panel.  The panel is actually an 84″ curtain panel that my mom lengthened for me over the holidays.

Next to it is a small table that holds extra soaps and Q-tips, but all of that decor can easily be moved and stored in the vanity if guests would prefer to keep extra towels or a change of clothes on the table.

I have even more spare toiletries in a vintage sewing drawer on the back of the toilet.  The drawer holds a wash cloth, extra hand soap, travel sized shampoo and conditioner, room spray, nail files, and even a small sewing kit.

Above the toilet is a small vintage hand mirror and compact that I have framed and placed a vintage comb from the late 1800’s above.

The wall art on the back wall is a large gold and silver vintage hand mirror and I love the juxtaposition of it against the bright, contemporary wallpaper.

The vanity itself is still my favorite part.

I love that the paint looks like a warm, weathered patina with its mix of warm and cool tones and I love all of the carved details.

The old faucet was replaced with this vintage-inspired one.

Separate soap and lotion dispenser sit on a small tray on one side…

…while a boxwood sphere in a mercury compote dish sits on the other along with a small container that can be used to hold guest items such as tooth brushes, toothpaste, jewelry, watches, etc.

Above the vanity, two sconces offer additional lighting.  The sconces are on a separate switch from the overhead lights and the overhead lights are on a dimmer, so all of the lighting can be customized to each person’s comfort level.  The mirror is actually the front of what used to be a medicine cabinet.  I love that its shape repeats the pattern in the wallpaper.

So we went from builder-grade…

…to beautiful!

It is so nice to have a bathroom where the sink doesn’t drip, the toilet doesn’t leak, and the shower actually works!  This is now our favorite room in the house and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!

    The new bathroom is not as dark as the before picture and the colour scheme really brightens things up! It’s elegant and warm and a room guests would be happy to indulge themselves in. I’ve always wondered if there’s an easy way to apply moulding onto the wall. It really enhances the decor. Valerie

      Hi Valerie – I can’t believe how much brighter the new bathroom is either – I love it! The moulding is actually three pieces all applied to the wall using liquid nails. There’s a chair rail at the top, a plain pine board, and a piece of trim that’s been mitered into a square. I was originally going to do a recessed panel, which looks a bit fancier IMHO, but it was more costly and so I just went with the trim applied directly on the pine board. Now I want to put paneling all through the house!!!

It’s funny because since I lived through the remodel, I forgot how the Before looked until I went back to grab the photos for the post and even I couldn’t believe the difference! Now, of course, I want to remodel my master bath {because it looks exactly like the guest bath before} but it’s not in the budget… :( I’ll just spend more time in the guest bath for now!! Lol!

    You need a TV show – The Dollar-Wise Decorator. The Frugal Frau’s My Mandion Makeover. The Dump Decorater. Makeover My Manse. K. Enuf. I want to know why you didn’t go with the sconces uou originally chose. They had crystals so byooty-full. Ones you have are certainly nice but I do love the initial one you chose. K. What is the next project? Waiting impatiently. Decorating Dreams to you (another TV show name too!)

      You are too funny! Love The Dump Decorator! I ended up not buying the crystal sconces because I decided that with the exception of the vanity, I wanted everything else to be a bit more typical for a bathroom and able to transition between styles. Really, I was thinking about resale value and how someone would react if they didn’t like the style I’ve chosen. Since the wall behind the vanity and the floor are completely finished, someone could easily put in a different vanity if they want and everything else works with other styles so I thought it was just a bit more practical. But yes, those original sconces were amazing!!

    Your bathroom turned out stunning, Kim! I am in the midst of our master bathroom makeover. Nothing as major as yours was, but enough to make a real difference in its look for not a lot of money. I’m waiting on a cabinet and then it will be done and I can’t wait! I love the piece you used for the vanity and the tile is gorgeous.

    This is a very inspiring and amazing transformation. I love the shape of the sink as well as the dresser you used as a vanity.

    Wow, what an amazing transformation. I especially love the dresser you used as the vanity. It has such a great patina on it.

    Absolutely gorgeous and inspiring! I can’t wait to get my hands on a couple of our bathrooms in our home. I would love to hear how you got your dresser to have the patina look and vintage.

    Absolutely gorgeous! We’re in the planning stages of remodeling a small bathroom, and I have an antique washstand that we’re going to use as a vanity. It keep going back and forth between putting the sink right in the top of it, or topping with with stone. I love the look of your vanity, so you might have just swayed my decision. I made sure to pin your post and am now following you!

    Love, love, love your bathroom transformation! We are downsizing and permanently moving into our vacation home this summer. I plan to redo the dated bathroom that is similar to your ‘before’ BR. How did you remove the old track and glass slider on your bathtub? Did you have to have the tub refinished? Thank you?

    Love everything about this space! Gorgeous. Did you share your source for the side table in another post perchance? Also, would you please PLEASE please give a tutorial on how you transformed the dresser top into a sink? That’s a project I’ve been dying to try and I have the piece ready and waiting! Thanks!

      Hi Sara! Thank you so much! I shared all of the sources in a separate post that you can find here: http://tidbitsandtwine.com/guest-bathroom-details-sources/. I haven’t yet done a tutorial for turning the dresser into a vanity but surprisingly, it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. The basic idea, though, was to take the sink template and lay it on top of the dresser top. We used a chalk pen to trace the outline. We DID NOT center the sink but rather put it slightly more toward the front so that you don’t have to reach or lean in order to wash your hands. The handyman used a jigsaw to cut around the chalk line and once he dropped the sink in, he sealed it with caulking. In the Source post I provided above, you can see a picture of the inside of one of the drawers to see the U-shape that we added so that the drawers were still functional. Keep in mind that my dresser had the drawer glides on the sides, not the middle, which allowed us to cut out a portion of the center.

      Good luck with your project and I’m sure it will turn out beautifully! :) Kim

    What an amazing and inspiring transformation. Could you share how you attached the hand mirrors to the backing? I collect them and would love to display a couple of them in that manner.
    Thanks!

    I should have gone to the source post before asking about the mirrors, so no need to answer. Thanks, Bambi

    Kim,

    This is just beautiful! The vanity is so special, and I also love your little details. The framed hand mirror and using the vanity pieces as art is quite wonderful. Beautiful marble and lovely shower curtain panel. Love it all!!

      Hi Mayra – I didn’t stencil it, I wallpapered it. I debated for a long time about doing so, but since it is a neutral wallpaper I decided to go for it! :)
