Bathroom Reno: COMPLETE!

We made it! I've been sharing snippets here and there about us redoing our master bathroom. We actually finished it last weekend but my blog was giving me attitude this week and would not upload pictures. I digress. We have a very small master bath and we wanted to update it the best we could. Adding additional space was not an option for us but upgrading definitely was. So we opted to do some painting and replace our fiberglass insert shower with a nice new tiled shower. 

The before picture does not do justice to what we were working with since the shower curtain is closed, but you get the idea at least. Just needed some TLC.

A while back we had painted the vanity cabinets in both of our bathrooms a dark grey- from their original wood. So when looking at tile colors and wall color we wanted something that would compliment it well. So we went with a solid grey oversized subway tile and a very light grey for the walls. We could not be happier with the outcome! A new shower curtain, that was more suited to the new color scheme was added and we feel like we have a whole new bathroom! 

And of course...why paint one bathroom on a Sunday afternoon when you could paint TWO! We matched the guest bathroom with the new paint color and everything feels just wonderfully fresh and updated. 

Two weeks. A day for demo (my hubby is very handy), a few days for the plumber and tile guy and one Sunday afternoon with my man in two tiny bathrooms taping, painting and smiling. Totally worth it! 


  1. It looks great! We are going to be renovating our main bathroom in the very near future (the new toilet and shower are sitting on our back porch as I write this!). I hope it turns out as well as yours did!

  2. Both bathrooms look great, Maggie, but your "new" master is just beautiful. I love those over-sized subway tiles and the colors you chose. Well done!! xo

  3. Looks fabulous! Can't wait to see it in person!
