Bathroom: Before & After

This post is linked to Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps On The Porch.

We have been working on our guest bathroom forever! I even bought some of the stuff shortly after moving into the house, over two years ago. Here’s a list of what we did:
– Changed the door and cabinet knobs from shiny brass to polished chrome.
– Changed the lights, towel bars and accessories to Chatham Collection from Restoration Hardware.
– Got a new mirror.
– Painted the room green.
– Two weeks later, primed over the green and painted it pink: Martha Stewart’s Magnolia Grandiflora from Home Depot.
– New counter and sink.
– New shower, bath and sink taps from
– New woven wood blind from
I have owned the shower curtain and coordinating towels from Pottery Barn for several years. I still like them, so I see no need to change them.

I want to say a special thanks to the husband for painting and re-painting. And sticking with it for hours, until the towel bar from H E double hockey sticks finally stayed on the wall! Thanks, Honey! Oh, and thanks also to the nice people at Frog Tape, who did a giveaway at Newlywed Diaries, which I won! We used two rolls while painting and re-painting. It’s great stuff. I hope everyone has a great week. 🙂

This Moment Has Been Two Years In The Making!

Ladies and gentlemen, it only took me two years to badger the husband into new counters in two out of the I’m too embarrassed to say the number bathrooms. Without further ado:

Look away! I'm ugly and naked!

Yes, even more ugly wallpaper was discover in my home today.

Okay, you can look, but don't stare! I may be pretty, but I'm still naked!

Goodbye shell shaped sink. Try saying that 3 times fast!

Hello lovely white quartz!

Hopefully over the next couple of weeks we can get the faucets hooked back up. I still have a lot to do before the green bathroom is finished: A new window treatment, new tub and shower fixture, touch up painting, framing artwork. I want to be done by mid Sept., but my absolute, last call deadline is Sept. 30. Wish me luck!
