We purchased our home a little over a year ago now, and we are finally on our way to making some really great changes to our 1980’s home. Our upstairs bathroom is one of our first fully completed projects. The upstairs bathroom was canary yellow when we moved in, and was seriously outdated. It had older finishes, and even had those counter tops with the shell sinks built into them. Yikes!
It was a complete surprise, because in the MLS listing it appeared to be tan. Either way, the plan was to change it. I wanted a classic but colorful look, so I went with white and blue with pops of color in the accents. You can check to see the gradual process here. I really wanted to add a tall wood element, so I decided to add a tall bead board all the way around the bathroom. This immediately made the bathroom seem much larger than it was. I decided on a gorgeous blue by Sherwin Williams called Indigo Batik. The walls I settled on Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore. I think it’s the perfect white.
I opted to tile the shower with the same tile I used in the rest of our home. Subway tile is a classic choice, and this tile is so affordable by Satori. This subway tile is only fifteen cents a tile! Yes, fifteen cents! We decided to stack each tile on top of each other and only leave that small grout line. We used Polyblend Non Sanded grout in the color Platinum that we purchased from Home Depot.
I love how the scalloped mirror looks in this bathroom. I really loved that it wasn’t brass or gold, so that there were multiple hardware tones. I chose acrylic and brass hardware because I loved the modern touch it gives this bathroom. I actually tried to have more modern finishes overall, from the lighting to the bathroom hardware.
I finished off the remodel with colorful artwork from Minted. Minted offers artwork from actual artists and they also offer framing. I chose a gold frame and two colorful pieces of artwork. I just made my selections and Minted sent them straight to my door without having to purchase the artwork and the framing separately.
Thank you so much to Minted for gifting me this artwork to complete my bathroom renovation.
