before and after: bathrooms

This past summer we renovated both of our bathrooms with the help of our friend Blake. They are now some of my favorite places in the house! So full of light and instant serenity! Here are some of the before and after photos.


In the above bathroom we took out all the old square tile and 70's vanity and replaced it with a vanity from Home Depot that I spruced up with black high gloss paint. For the floor we replaced the hexagon tile that was worn with black and white spiral tile. The train rack is a cheapy from Target, but I think it looks just as nice as the Pottery Barn version. Ever since I watched Pillow Talk with Doris Day, I have wanted a monogrammed shower curtain. This was another Target purchase that my friend Eliza monogrammed for me.

In this bathroom we went down to studs. We replaced the walls and added wainscoting with trim. Again we tore out the giant vanity and replaced it with a pedestal sink that is a more perfect size for this space. (don't you love the raised toilet seat in the before photo? classy.) The shelves are West Elm and the polka dot shower curtain is from Pottery Barn. I ordered the vintage looking containers from a medical supply store and the first aid kit is from Cath Kidston.
