Bathroom Makeover Final Reveal! ORC – Fall 2016

Hi all and welcome back!  I can’t believe it’s done.  It’s Wednesday at about 7pm and I seriously just finished.   I have 5 hours to spare!  Nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh???  It was a stressful six weeks if I’m being honest.  In case you are new here, I am one of the guest participants in the One Room Challenge sponsored by Calling it Home.   I am second guessing everything now and still trying to move things around.  But, overall I’m super excited this is done and we don’t have the awful mess that it was before anymore.  So, without further ado, here is the hall bathroom makeover!

Do you remember where we started back six or so weeks ago?  This was our ugly, dated, 70s bathroom…

I got my plan together for where I wanted to go and it looked like this.

This was the first time I used a program to draw a room and plan it out and it was so helpful in sticking to a plan.  I gutted the entire space.  We had a contractor set the new shower pan and build the new half wall, then I got to work.  I had detailed posts on some of the project but will have the other projects coming very soon.  So, after prepping the floor, tiling everything, building a vanity, picking out accessories and painting, we have our new bathroom.

Whew, I learned a LOT!  Crazy!   I’m still planning a few things, like maybe adding two drawers – one on either side of the door?  Or a shelf on either side?  I don’t’ know, but the vanity still needs something.

  1. Wow! That was a GIANT transformation!!! I can’t believe it’s the same room! It looks AMAZING! I love the deep, dark color with the earthy mix of wood and stone. You did a great job! And, I’m with you… So glad it’s done!! I just finished today too!

  2. Oh my gosh, it looks amazing!!!!! That shower! That sink! Those pendants! That cabinet! And I adore the art of toilet paper pic!! Incredible – you’ve outdone yourself girl!

    1. Thank you Roxanne!! I took a risk with that but love the way it turned out. I was physically laying the tile saying “this is going to be a mistake”, haha.

  3. I love how this turned out. It’s warm and smooth and I love all of the subtle hints of gold and sparkle. What a great, great makeover! Great work, my friend!

  4. Oh my gosh, I can’t believe this is the same bathroom! It truly looks like you are in a spa! I love the dark color with the wood tones. You did so much and still finished on time! Awesome job!

  5. April, you seriously hit this out of the park. Out. Of. The. Park! I am in love with the dark walls, the wood-look tile, your vanity… it feels modern, sophisticated, a little moody in a good way. And those pendant lights!!! Gorgeous!

  6. This was really unexpected and I LOVE it! Great job on building the vanity, it looks stunning and perfect for the space. Love the lights too! And the dark walls! Seriously, I could just keep listing all the beautiful touches with a bunch of exclamation points but I’ll stop. And the different directions of the tile! Ok, couldn’t help it. You should be so proud and excited to see the rest of the “how-to’s” for this space.

    1. Yes! So sorry I left that out. I used Valspar Signature Interior Semigloss paint but used the color “Black Majic” from the Olympic line of paints (I just like Valspar paint better) on the wall behind the vanity and toilet only. On the other three walls I used Valspar Signature Interior Satin in “Knight’s Armor (Olympic)” on the other 3 walls. The ceiling is Bohemian Lace from SW, also Valspar Signature Interior Flat Matte. Hope that helps!

  7. April, I seriously can’t believe what you accomplished in this room! You completely transformed it, and I am SO impressed!! The tile you used in the shower and the pattern are so beautiful. Job well done – you deserve a billion high fives!

  8. This turned out so nice! I love the modern look and cannot wait for your tutorials. Our bathroom is on our list to be redone and we want to take out the tub for a walk in shower and we love the concrete look. Great job!!!

  9. April, I love the sink. Have pored over your notes and I can’t find who made it. May I ask for the manufacturer and model name, please?

    1. Hi Katy! I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to write back. Here is my affiliate link for the sink – https://amzn.to/3a7BGWn . I’m not sure it’s available right now, but there are some similar options if not. I do love the sink, but there is a lot of splashing, so I had to turn the water level way down.
