Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten as much done in the bathroom this past week as I would have liked to. Womp womp womp.
There have been a few unexpected things that got added to my list, some things taking longer than expected and as I told my paint guy yesterday – “If I could actually get everything I need here the first time, instead of too much of one thing and not enough of another, I’d already be done.” So there’s also been numerous supply runs.
If you’re catching up and missed the before pictures and plan for this space, read this post first!
A big thanks to our official sponsors of the Primp and Pamper Bathroom Makeover, Build.com and Signature Hardware.
Here’s this week’s progress pictures…
So molding is all on the wall. There’s one coat of edging done around all the molding and the glorious elderberry vanity has been dry fitted for the space. Big thanks to Wayne for coming over and helping me rework some plumbing to make everything fit nicely within the vanity back. If you don’t have a Wayne in your life, you need to get one. He’s saved my butt on home projects more times than I can count.
Here’s the look we’re going for…
The molding and paint are what is taking a big ol’ chunk of time. It’s one of those projects where there is no fast way out – you just have to be patient and take your time. And have a six pack on hand – but only for painting and not the actual molding install. Don’t nobody want to see crooked trim. 😉
I’m really excited to get that vanity permanently in place, the new toilet set and all the fabulous brass fixtures installed for this space.
As I said last week, the kid had a say in everything that’s going into the space.
The Big Fixture Changes
This will add a great pop of color to the bottom half of the room against all the white moldings. I’m really impressed with how well this vanity is made. It’s constructed of solid wood (heavy wood!) and has soft close hardware for the doors and drawers – which if you have kids, that’s definitely something you need!
If you’re in the market for a pop of color vanity, then do take a gander at these options from Signature Hardware – I’m quite partial to the Emerald Green and Ruby Red finishes. In fact, I could very easily plot out a whole master bathroom makeover around either of those gorgeous colors. Hubba hubba.
A new toilet for this bathroom wasn’t necessarily on the list when we set out to do this makeover. However, the more glam the Circus got with this bathroom, the more I was like, a pretty toilet would look fantastic in here. I always like to opt for good reliable brands when it comes to bathroom fixtures like this. Our toilet came from Build.com. Build has an impressive selection of home improvement products in every category from top brands – like this beauty. And yes, I just called a toilet beautiful.
The Midas Touch Updates
The kid wanted gold and she’s getting gold..
All of the plumbing fixtures, towel holders, toilet paper holders, etc. are from Build as well. I am a stickler for having coordinating styles throughout a space when it comes to these things and Build offers just about any bathroom accessory you could need in countless brands and collections.
Curvy Brass Mirror + Pendants
I was never really crazy about the pendants we put up when we switched them out the first time. Needless to say, I’m super pumped to get these in the space. They have a kind of retro vibe to me and remind me of I Dream of Jeannie. The curves on the mirror are a nice compliment to the curves on the toilet as well. These came from Build as well – they literally have everything for your entire home improvement project.
More Color Splashes
This shower curtain from Signature Hardware is going to add more color to the room opposite the vanity. The gingko leaves are a purple/deep blue color which will coordinate nicely with the vanity and wallpaper. I’m adding the tassel around the edges to bring out the yellow in the shower curtain more and also the yellow in the wallpaper.
And finally, this rug will help to bridge everything together. The gray tiles on the floor are staying which do help to anchor all the color, but there still needs to be something there so the floor doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. This rug sports colors from everything in the space!
The To-Do List Update
As I said, I haven’t gotten near as much done as I’d planned on getting done this past week. The good news is though that I have put a big dent in one of the most time-consuming projects within the space – the wall moldings are up, holes filled, edges caulked and almost one full coat of paint on them.
Remove old vanity and toilet.
Install chair rail, wall moldings, etc.
• Paint from chair rail down – in progress!
• Hang wallpaper above chair rail.
• Switch out pendant lights.
• Install new vanity, faucet, toilet, etc.
• Hang new mirror.
• Add trim to shower curtain – I’ve dropped this off with my seamstress! Can’t wait to get it back; it looked so pretty when I laid it all out!
• Install new shower curtain rod and hang new shower curtain.
• Gussy Up the Step Stool
• Revamp and Hang Art
Check back next week for the final stretch!
