A Neutral Bathroom Makeover

If I'm not updating a bathroom every few years,
I'm off my game.

This is my daughters' bathroom. Two college aged girls share this bathroom. At one time all of my four daughters shared this bathroom. It is not usually clean and if you're even slightly interested you can read all about that problem {here}

If you follow the green links in this post you can sit for a while and read all about the stories of this bathroom. 

This is their bathroom before...

I know... Orange! Even on the ceiling... I blame it on my hormones, or lack there of. 

We used a lot of toilet paper in this 4 daughter house, you can read that promo story too by visiting {here}

So anyway, this is where this project began...

I had my work cut out for me... well for my painter mostly.

We began by repainting the wainscoting and the trim with a bright white.  The ceiling is back to white. 

We used Behr Premium from Home Depot in Silver Marlin for the walls. It is a beautiful grey color with just a hint of green. The rest of my house is a beautiful neutral and it was time this room was too!

You can visit here to see how I framed the large mirror myself and believe it or not, it was easy!

I repaired the side of this vanity which was water damaged from the time one daughter left the shower curtain on the outside of the tub while she showered. 🙄

Repairing and repainting the vanity saved me about $800 for a new one. You can visit here to read all about the vanity water damage repair.

I chose a white rosette shower curtain from Tuesday Morning and I'm hoping on hope it will remain white for a even a little while.

White towels (yes once again 🤷🏻‍♀️) are hung on an over the door towel holder and a roll down matchstick window shade from Home Depot covers the window. 

I made a stenciled garden rug for in front of the sink by repurposing a holiday mat. This was fun and a money saver too!

The floor is navy blue 12" ceramic tile from Home Depot.

I'm loving the color and praying it stays clean and pretty for a little while at least. Wish me luck!

  1. Wow. That orange was bright, but really a fun color for kids. The softer colors are so much prettier and calmer, which is what we all look for these days.

  2. Beautiful Susan! I bet they love it, too.
