I can’t believe that it’s already Bathroom Reveal Week for the Primp and Pamper Bathroom Refresh blog hop! I still am amazed at all the great sponsors that Jewel was able to pull together for us, and so grateful that I was able to join such an amazing group of ladies in this hop. If you’re joining me here from Kelly’s post on Street Flea Style, welcome! I am seriously in awe of her bathroom – it went from kinda boring to absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
If you want to check out where the girl’s bathroom started, you can check out week one’s post HERE. When we started a few weeks ago, we had already put a lot of the major work, such as the new tile in the shower and floors, etc, but it was lacking any kind of style or personality.
It’s been a busy few weeks, but I really love the way it turned out, and so do the girls!
First and foremost, the wallpaper made the biggest impact in the room. The SmithHonïg wallpaper , called Bryony Storm Noir, was pretty easy to install. It is like a giant sticker, you just peel the back paper and apply it where it needs to go. After the paper went up, which was the first thing I did, the room felt completely different – more fun, vibrant and fresh. With no natural light in the bathroom, I was worried that it would be too dark, but I think it actually brightened it up in there.
The easiest update in the bathroom was switching out the drawer pulls and handles. Liberty Hardware provided these beautiful pulls, and I think they were the perfect accent to modernize the vanity. The vanity is painted in an oil base paint, Naval by Sherwin Williams. It’s my favorite shade of navy – not green, not purple, just blue. I also replaced the hinges with ones I picked up from Home Depot, as the old ones were old and brassy, and didn’t go with the pretty handles.
Another easy update was the addition of the rug from Rugs USA. I love that it is warm and soft underfoot, and fits with the entire room. There is a lot going on with the wallpaper and the shiny finishes, and the rug is the perfect neutral that pulls it all together.
We had to take down the mirror above the sinks, which was quite a task since it was glued on. Since the sinks were so far apart, we had to make sure we replaced them with large enough mirrors to take up the space while not being so large that they were oddly placed over the sinks. These Takeo mirrors from Lamps Plus were the perfect size,31″ x 43″, and look even more beautiful in person than I can relay in these photos.
Artwork was so hard in this room because I really didn’t want to compete with the pretty wallpaper, so I painted a few of the frames I had laying around the house and put them up as temporary “art”. I think in order for it to really work, I might need a few more frames.
Our old goldy-brass faucets and accessories were replaced by the Voss collection by Moen – even the toilet tank lever was updated to match.
I love the crisp, chrome finish and that they are fun without being too trendy. I think they are a timeless choice.
I have to say, since my very first experience in our old house with Moen’s toilet paper holders that flip up to change the roll, I’ve only put those kinds of paper holders in our bathrooms. It makes it super simple to change out the roll, without catching your fingers in the process! Now, if I could just get the kids to do it, that would be great. 😀
The shower was re-tiled with 12″ x 24″ marble on the walls, and herringbone mosaic tiles on the floor. We got them at Floor and Decor last year. I love that the gray of the marble is very blue-ish gray, which ended up looking incredible with the wallpaper! At first, I was worried that the veining might be a little busy, but I love how pretty each individual piece is. Our tile guy was really good about using the cuts to wrap around the corners, which I love.
Two of my favorite things about their shower is the large bench seat we had put in, and the niche for their shampoos and other shower stuff. The niche kind of blends into the wall since we used the same tile as the walls for it. It gives them a lot of tall space for their shampoo and conditioner. Nothing is worse than to find out your niche is useless because it doesn’t hold your stuff!
So, I hope you loved my big reveal! Make sure that if you missed any of the other reveals, you can check them all out here.
