Bathroom Updates

I was cleaning our main level bathroom this morning, and it occurred to me that I have never shared any of the updates we have made in this room since the initial updates we made shortly after we moved in. I decided it was time to snap a few pics and share. When I got on my computer to look up when I posted the initial updates I realized that it had been almost exactly 3 years....What? How in the world? I guess I should not be nominated for the "Slowest Blogger Award". Anyway, when we moved in we decided not to do a complete overhaul, but more of a refresh.

Bathroom Before We Moved In

Bathroom After Initial Updates 3 Years Ago
Initial Updates 3 Years Ago
removed wallpaper
prepped and painted walls
painted cabinets
painted the original hardware
added a newish faucet (used, but new to us)
added a newish sink (used, but new to us)
tiled the counter
added new towel rings and toilet paper holder
spray painted a new light fixture and had my handy husband hang that up for me

You can read more about the initial updates and see more pictures HERE.

We have only done a few really simple things since the initial upgrades, but they have made such a difference.

More Resent Updates
We added a frame to the mirror.
We added accessories.

That's it!

I'm not really sure why it took me so long to add the frame, but it made such a difference. The room really needed something to warm it up, so I chose to stain the wood instead of painting it to match the cabinets. I'm really happy with the contrast. Oh, and I think the wood cost less then $10. We already had stain and adhesive, so this was an inexpensive upgrade.

Accessory Source List
rug - Target
teal towl - Target
gold frames with mats - thrifted
peacock prints - peacock, peacock feather - printed on my printer with images from the graphics fairy

  1. LOVE the before and after. I especially love that mirror. Did y'all add the trim or did y'all buy that mirror. I'm wanting a bigger mirror in our master and they can be SO expensive. Love this update.

    1. Thanks Leslie! We added the trim. It was really easy and inexpensive to do.

  2. What a transformation! Amazing!!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I read and appreciate each and every single one.
