Another Bathroom Reno

While we have poured many hours, blood, sweat, and tears into our upstairs bathroom renovations (master, guest) over the last year, we have one half bath on our first floor that wasn't feeling any love.

It was always on my long mental list to get this room cleaned up a bit. But seeing as it's a completely functional room, it was certainly not a priority. I planned to spruce this room up while out on maternity leave - fresh paint, fixtures, maybe some shelves. 

Lucky for me, we got to hand this one off to the professionals. The water damage in the kitchen meant that the half bath got a new floor and ceiling as well since its located right off of the kitchen. Wait, so someone else will be painting this room on our behalf? Wahoo!

What the contractor took care of:
  • Installed a new ceiling and freshly painted it
  • Installed our faux wood tile flooring
  • Installed new baseboards (after losing a piece of the original)
  • Shaved down the door due to the new tile flooring, which incidentally fixed the jamming problem we were having with it.
  • Painted the room using a paint color we already had on hand (master bath reno) - Benjamin Moore Baltic Gray
I had picked up a couple shelves at Target a few months back after watching them get so deeply discounted they were practically free - $2.98/shelf. Yes, please! And the shelf styling is thanks to Homegoods, oh and Charmin ultra-soft.

It never ceases to amaze me how a few simple updates can really change a room. Not that I'm calling the tile install simple, but I think the biggest game changer here is the fresh paint. 

So, what's left to do in here?
  • Update the light fixture. I think something like this will look great. 
  • Updated fixtures - the sink is not going anywhere anytime soon but the faucet, towel holder, and TP holder are all dingy.
  • New door knob - battle of the brass doorknobs over here...
  • New window shade
  • Hang these prints back up (across from the shelves)
I think it's safe to say we are DONE with bathroom renovation projects for a very long time. Phew!
