main bathroom reveal.

The bathroom is finally 100% done.

When we moved into the house (nearly 5 years ago). All of the bathrooms had "sweet" honey oak cabinets and laminate counter tops...and those awesome mirrors glued directly to the wall (you know, the ones all houses have). The toilet was little and the floor was the same tile that went through a lot of the main living area. The toilet was changed out immediately:)
(I couldn't find a picture from the original bathroom)

About 2 years ago, we decided to update the bathrooms by putting in new vanities and countertops...and to replace the mirrors with framed ones. We put in a new bar light strip (don't judge, I just can't really see spending any money on the "fancier" looking ones...for a bathroom).

So this is what the bathroom has looked like for the past couple years.

So much better then the honey oak.

When we started "Thompson remodel 2010" the tile in the bathroom had to go too. So Mr. T had to pull out his toilet and vanity. I said, while you are at it...and while I am painting every other thing in our home...go ahead and pull out the mirror etc and let's do this baby right.

Our new bathroom.



What we did:

painted the ceiling
painted the door and pocket door to the laundry room
changed the towel hook
changed out the door knob from awesome brass to satin nickel
painted the moldings around the door
put in new baseboards
put in new flooring
painted the walls...with stripes

It looks great and those stripes are amazing! I'd love to do stripes,but we have textured walls. I will never again buy a house with textured walls.

Great job!

Just saw this on the CSI Project. I can't wait to show my husband, he's a strip paintin' fool. He'll love it! I love the 2 tone stripes, in that lovely subtle color. And we're, unfortunately, victims of the Honey Oak in EVERY part of our home. I'm going to admit a tiny bit of jealousy. Maybe one day.....

The Jolley's said...

So I love this times like a million. If you don't mind I think I am going to copy it for my bathroom. It is the same layout and I have not been able to figure out how to paint it. This is perfect i can't hardly wait to get started :}

amyg said...

I love the stripes. I did one vertical strip around my entire son's bedroom wall and have been thinking about more. I love the colors you chose too! Awesome.

Jen @ tatertotsandjello.com said...
