Hello! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I spent the better part of last week laid out with a serious case of the stomach flu. Not fun.
Any-hoo, I’m better now and pumped to show you my (almost) finished guest bathroom.
Here’s the before:
Remember when I mentioned last week that you would need to imagine beautiful molding around the mirror? Well, I meant that. I still have a bare naked mirror. I’m not sure if I want to purchase a frame for it that is already finished from MirrorMate (easy route, but more expensive) or if I should buy molding and create my own frame like I did in my downstairs half bath. Decisions, decisions … I do know I want the frame to have a bit of an old-world, rubbed bronze look with maybe a hint of gold. If I create the frame myself, I just might break out the crackle paint medium. Bwahahahaha. Stay tuned for more on that project.
Aside from the mirror frame, the room is D.O.N.E.
The white beadboard paneling and chair rail we added has definitely given the room some much needed architectural detail. My miter saw was an absolute godsend with this project, by the way. It cut the molding like buttah. I should add that the hubs trimmed the paneling using his circular saw. I’m still taking baby steps when it comes to using power tools, people. I enjoy having all my fingers.
We reduced the cost of this remodel by keeping the same flooring, shower/tub combo, sink, mirror and cabinetry. We did change out all the hardware and fixtures to oil-rubbed bronze (ORB) pieces, which was not exactly cheap. Tip: If you can keep your existing tub/shower fixtures and sink fixtures, you will save hundreds of dollars.
