Bathroom Reveal..It's finally done.

Well after a year and a half my bathroom is finally done and I couldn't be happier. When all said and done I think I spent about $2,500. I did a lot of the work myself but also had help from some amazing guys too. I love it so much. It's so fresh and clean and no sponge painted. Lol. Here are the before and after pictures. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.

 Here's a breakdown of some of the things in here.
The vanity is an old desk that I redid. I think I paid maybe five dollars for it. I had to cut the middle drawer because of the plumbing.

The vanity light I picked up at the thrift store for $1.99. It was brass so I sprayed it with some metallic spray paint that I had.

The mirror is two pieces. The top part is pretty much scrap wood and left over trim.

The towel hanger is a piece of the old baseboard. I just painted it and rubbed it with some stain and put some hooks on it.

I reused all of the old trim and mouldings. This not only saved on cost but I loved the this stuff. You can't find this stuff unless you have it made. It's very solid. It's not perfect but I think that adds character. The crown and chair rail are new.

The bead board panels I got free from my friend Gary. I love him..

I used some left over fabric for the vanity and the valance.

The picture on the wall is something that I painted in literally five minutes.

I used marine paint on the window in the shower. Hopefully this holds up.

Everything else I looked and looked until I got the best deals.

To view more of the before and durning pictures just go to my 2011 post and check them out. Quite a difference.


  1. Great job! I love the blue!

    My bathroom is on my 'to do' list and I was thinking about using a dresser as a vanity but I just haven't found the right one yet.

    1. When I started I looked at tons of vanities and just didn't like any of the ones I saw. I picked this up at the thrift store for about five bucks and knew that was it. Keep looking and good luck.

  2. Wow, your desk vanity and shutter shelf are darling!
