The 35 Day Bathroom Remodel Reveal

Behold, the 35 day bathroom remodel reveal!
Have a look at the before and after photos:















This bathroom is the only full bath on the main level, providing both access to the outdoors and for overnight guests. It was badly in need of an update, which I've been dreaming about for 12 years!

My favorite improvement has to be the floor! Ever since my daughter had this honed black marble hexagon tile installed in her bathroom, I knew it was what I wanted for mine.

The half inch thick glass shower surround was saved and reused.
The tile was replaced with white subway tile from Daltile, and the wainscot is tongue and groove paneling. All plumbing fixtures, including the sink and toilet are from American Standard.

The standard issue overhead vanity light was replaced with a single, chrome sconce from Restoration Hardware along side the oval tilt mirror from Pottery Barn.
I ended up keeping the original cabinet and replacing the tile with carrara marble and an undermount sink.

The walls above the wainscot were smoothed out and painted Benjamin Moore's "vapor trails," a soft gray, which is a new color in my palette

Once again I'm thankful that Ryan the Contractor came in on time and under budget.
Yes, it took a few days longer than the upstairs bathroom, but that is because the floor tile didn't come in on time and the bathroom faucet was backordered and only came in today.
Just in time for Thanksgiving!

Thank you Courtney at French Country Cottage for featuring my upstairs bathroom remodel.
I'm joining her again for Feathered Nest Friday. Thankful is appropriately the theme for this week, so be sure to check it out!
I'm also joining Kim at Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesday.
Meg and Mums is having her first linky party, so I'm joining her for Saturday Splendour Party.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Pin It!

Fantastic! It looks so much more modern and fresh now, and the floor tiles make a huge difference too. I'd love it if you'd link this up to my Saturday Splendour Party at :)
