Guest Bathroom Reveal – The Big Before and After

I am finally done with my guest bathroom…for now that is!  As you might remember, a couple weeks ago we replaced the tile in this downstairs bathroom and laundry room.  I waited to post the pictures of the bathroom because I got a little ambitious and added a few more projects…

BEFORE:

Here is what the bathroom looked like before we did anything.  The tile was white and the grout always looked dirty.

BEFORE:

I was not happy with the beige colored toilet that always got clogged.

BEFORE:

Oh, and take notice of the oak cabinets….(Yes, this is an old shot with a different rug).  I decided to refinish the cabinets while the guys worked on the tile. What a project.  You can read all about the fun details ,but for now lets take a look…

IN PROGRESS:

The demolition, what a mess!

IN PROGRESS:

As the new toilet went in, I realized I needed to paint behind it.  Just another project…By the way, the paint color in here is Benjamin Moore Saybrook Sage in case you were wondering…

IN PROGRESS:

The cabinets took awhile.

AFTER:

But it was worth the wait in the end!

AFTER:

The new white toilet.

AFTER:

Another view of the cabinets.

AFTER:

Ah, finally done!

Here is a recap of the bathroom transformation:

BEFORE:

AFTER:

My neighbor told me I should change the wicker accents and the picture frame that matched the old cabinets.  I kind of like the natural textures mixed in. What do you think?

I’d love for you to follow along so you don’t miss a post!

    Beautiful changes! I really like them! Painting your cabinet white and changing out the fixtures updated it dramatically! If you like the natural accents, by all means keep them. If you want a more modern, cottage look, then white would look really pretty. Whatever you like and enjoy looking at is the right thing for you to have, in my humble opinion:)Hugs, Cindy

    You know me 🙂 I LOVE the wider margins! Seriously though–GREAT JOB! Your bathroom looks fabulous. I disagree with your neighbor and love the contrast of the natural elements with the white. Isn't it amazing what a difference each detail makes? Be proud!

    What a great re-do! I also like the wicker accents, they really stand out more than they did before.As for the bigger pics? Definitely! I wish everyone would do this, some pics are so darn small and I don't want to click on every single one to see them. Makes for much more enjoyable reading. Kudos!

    Your bathroom looks great! We have been working on ours and can't seem to find the color of paint I have been looking for! What is the name of the paint color you used? It looks like the color I have been searching for but the samples never turn out the way I thought they would!
