We have made big changes in the master bathroom since we moved in. For example, we replaced the old fiberglass shower with a tiled floor to ceiling shower.
We replaced the original 1980s vanity with a vanity we made ourselves from an old antique dresser. The mister was a big part of the ‘we’ when it comes to the vanity construction.
We had 20 x 20 travertine tile installed to replace the carpet, yes the carpet, that was there. Who wants carpet in a bathroom?!
update art & rug
new light fixtures
I started with painting the trim. Painting is one of my favorite things to DIY. I really kind of like it. It’s peaceful and you can see a big transformation in a relatively short amount of time. I appreciate instant gratification. BUT, I’d rather paint the walls than just the trim. Painting trim is no bueno. I knocked it out though: two coats of Behr’s Ultra White in a semi gloss finish on the two doors, two windows, and baseboards. I must mention that the trim in my entire house (except for the living room’s stained trim) is cream. Not white. Cream. You can see what I mean in this picture taken while putting on the first coat.
That small change to bright white really pops and makes difference. Of course, that light fixture was not doing anyone any favors.
It took a few years, but I finally finished this room off with a fresh coat of paint and updated light fixtures. See all the updates and new pictures HERE.
