Vintage Bathroom Makeover -- "The After"

This is the reveal on our main floor bathroom remodel.
View some of the sad "before" pics here.

 LOVE how the sink area turned out.  We used scrap tiles
that we had assembled ourselves into a mosaic. 

We put in this vintage porcelain and milk glass light fixture,
it fits the age of our house better than the previous fixture.

We reused the old medicine cabinet above the sink.
I bought it at an auction over 20 years ago.

 I used the doors off of an old cabinet for under the sink,
and they fit perfectly.
Check them out on the thrifty highlights link below.

I got the old wood surrounding the shower enclosure 
from a friend, see more information
on the recycled wood and other thrifty highlights here.
I am smitten with the nail holes and color variation.

I had the guys build a couple of shelves from
the old wood above the toilet.

I chose an "icy teal" wall color because it coordinated
well with the adjoining room.  It also looked great with 
the white trim and old wood.

New laminate waterproof flooring.
Also a thrifty find.

We were "blessed" with a drop ceiling in the bathroom for the last 25 years.
This remodel included a real ceiling.
We actually had to locate trim for the top of this transom window
because the evil drop-ceiling people had removed it.

I bought this plasma art sign from the same friend
I purchased the wood from.  I had the guys hang it
above the shower for me -- it was very heavy.

I love this fresh new view from the doorway.

I am a little in love with the ceiling lights.
The rest of the bathroom had a bit of a masculine
vibe, so I chose prettier lights.

Short on storage, we needed a little shelf unit.  I purchased
this little beauty at the antique mall.  I am used to being on the selling end.
It was a blast shopping for once.  I love the tin ceiling tile in the back.

  1. I adore this bathroom! The old wood is fabulous and I liked how you attached the shelves to the walls above the toilet. And I love the transom window. Very cool.

  2. It looks good! Know you are glad to have it re-done.
