Finally....The Bathroom

Hey everyone. Remember this mess? It took awhile but the bathroom is done. For those who are just arriving you can read more about the progress and what a mess it was here and here. Then there was the board and batten vs bead board issue that you all helped me think through here and here. Feel free to revisit and reminisce won't you? Without further adieu may I present....


The new bathroom! Let me say it's hard to take shots in a 5x5 space. But I did, just for you all. We did steal some space from the garage so no, your eyes are not deceiving you. My closet was not that big.




Here is how we solved the change in tile issue. The tile in the laundry room was still available but the dye lot was off. So, we went with a different tile, slightly smaller in size and used the transition piece in the doorway.


I couldn't go too frilly in here as it will be mostly used by my hubby. Hence the fishing magazines. Just noticed I forgot to put the shells in the jar. Oye!


I was short one hook but I went and predrilled it. This bath is just off the pool so I wanted lots of hooks for all of the towels. My original thought was to use boat cleats. Holy cow, those things are expensive. Hooks will do.


Okay, I slipped in a little bit of flowers. But they're in a manly color.


This used to be hunter green and brass. I'll show that on another post. Just gave it a little bit of a redo.


I have something else in mind for the towel ring. I'll show you if it works out.


I love the square sink and lights.The mirror is my little bit of pretty. But made out of wood so still manly right?




 Here is a wrap up of what I used. Everything else I already had.

Paint: BM Ocean Air (top) BM Chantilly Lace (bead board and trim)
Sink and Toilet: Archer by Kohler @ Home Depot
Faucet: Treveso by Price Pfister @ Tuesday Morning
Magazine Bucket: Tuesday Morning
Hooks, Light, Tile: Home Depot
Mirror: TjMaxx/Home Goods
Towel Ring/Towels: Marshalls

  4. Finally the post I have been waiting to see. I really like the beadboard. It all turned out so great. I bet your husband is happy to have a bathroom. You will love it this summer when you are playing in the pool and someone needs a potty break! I like that wood thing the jars are on. Where did you end up finding your magazine holder?

  6. This room is magazine worthy! Honestly, it's stunning! I remember when you first posted about the transition. I think that was the last time I looked at a blog!

    It's so nice to have extra bathrooms. Since we've been house hunting for four months I have decided that four or five bathrooms, at least, is a good place to start!

    Does your hubby love it??

  17. It's lovely! I always joke that my husband and I would have a hard time making it through a reno! I love that piece of wood that one of your blue jars is sitting on...some sort of architectural salvage??

    You all did a fabulous job!

  20. I love that mirror. That's also a great idea with the bucket on the toilet tank to hide the ugly kleenex box. I might have to borrow that idea for my bathroom, thanks!

  23. Anita, I love your bathroom!The beadboard turned out great...and the color, I love the shade of blue you chose.Great job of pulling everything together.
    Your going to love the convenience of it with the pool. At our other house we had a pool and a tiny,much smaller than your bath near the back entrance. It was such a life saver, without trucking everyone upstairs.
