Bathroom Reno // Phase 1 – The Reveal!

Good morning!

Today I am SO excited to share the real of Phase 1 of my bathroom renovation! Not only am I excited, but I’m so proud of what I accomplished to transform this space from what it was to what it is now. For a reminder of what it was before, you can check out my previous bathroom tour HERE. And in case you missed the halfway point progress, you can see the nitty gritty HERE.

If you read my 100 Day Challenge wrap up last week (HERE), you might recall me mentioning that I didn’t accomplish everything on my punch list, but I’m totally okay with it. I’m still so, SO happy with the results.

So, without further ado, the reveal!

Ta da! The floor painting is the only Phase 1 project I ultimately decided not to tackle. It wasn’t going to work how I wanted it to, so better left as is until I can replace it during Phase 2.

My original punch list did not include new decals for the upper tiles in the shower, but I think they brighten it up so much and are a good solution until I can afford to tackle Phase 2, which includes retiling the whole shower (and replacing the fixtures).

No more chair rail! Hooray! And custom built in floating shelves!

I’ve dreamt of these shelves from when I first moved in! They came with their own challenges, but I’m pleased with the result!

Vanity makeover: painted cabinets, new mirrors, new towel hook and a custom wood niche in place of the medicine cabinet!

And the view to the right: a shelf to hold my most used skin care products.

A close-up of the new medicine cabinet niche. To do: get prettier dental products!

New shower curtain rod and DIY shower curtain made from IKEA panels and a grommet kit.

Still to do from Phase 1: apply clear satin polycrylic to the floating shelves and medicine niche.

Overall, this renovation cost between $600 and $700 (I stopped keeping track at the point of purchasing the wood for the shelves and niche), and a lot of sweat (and some tears)! I am happy with the bang I got for my buck! So for now, it’s time to enjoy the fruits of my labor, and start saving up for Phase 2! lol…

Phase 2: new tile, new shower fixtures, new flooring, new sink/vanity/faucet combo.

Thank you for joining me on the updated tour of my main bathroom!

Have you done any room renovations recently?

Many thanks and much love,
laf
