master bathroom makeover
Inspiration finally struck. My hubby is out of town for the week and whenever he’s gone, I like to do some sort of major re-do. Our own version of “While You Were Out.” Poor guy never knows what to expect when he comes home. 🙂
Remember our master bathroom? Very outdated and small. A renovation is down the line, but for now a cosmetic makeover was in order.
My plan was simple. The look I wanted was spa meets rustic. Rustic Spa. Hmmm….is that an oxymoron?
Here’s the before.
And here’s the after.
I wanted to incorporate some sort of architectural element in the room. I found this old chippy screen door at an estate sale a few weekends ago. I love the shape of it. I sawed off the cross boards at the bottom so that it would fit behind the commode.
The box is from Pottery Barn and is actually a wine box. I added d-rings to the back and hung it. I love the rusticness of it and the dimension it gives.
I used a neutral palette of whites, creams, greys, and wood tones for a spa-like feel.
The mirror was a TJ Maxx find. Changing from the tacky builder mirror to a framed mirror made a huge difference for a small amount of money.
The shower curtain has little grey fleur de lis all over it. I love the touch of bling the jewelled rings add.
The thing I’m most proud of is the cabinet transformation. I painted it in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Paris Grey. Then I used her clear wax and dark wax over it. I absolutely love how it turned out. The oak cabinets were instantly updated and have a very custom look to them now.
So there you have it…the master bathroom makeover.
