This little party link is such a gem the room is totally perfect now ( and I think I like it even more because it reminds me of our very first bathroom remodel), and what makes it even better is the fact that the before was so incredibly hideous! I love a good healthy complete makeover like this one, so I must thank the good people at Cozy.Cottage.Cute Check out what she had to say about it:
Compared to most of the other rooms we've worked on, this reno was a bit crazy. Alex ripped so much of this bathroom out that I could pass him tools through the floor while he was in the basement. Um, yeah. Scary. I am very proud to say that Alex built the whole thing back up again. He did all of the plumbing, electrical, tiling, beadboard, crown moulding, and trimwork all by himself on evenings and weekends. I can take credit for choosing the fixtures, finishes, paint colours, and accessories, but Alex basically did all of the important stuff. He's the man!
Before I show off share some of the after photos, please take a moment to take in how utterly beautiful our half-bath was when we first moved in (double click to enlarge all photos).
Had to have beadboard and chunky moulding. Of course.
I had a terrible time trying to find a small, square mirror that would fit the tiny space between the beadboard ledge and the light fixture. Finally, I ended up creating my own by purchasing a (cheap, ugly) picture and replacing the print with a mirror tile from Home Depot. Truthfully, it's not my favourite but it will do for now.
