You may recall that we’ve been working on our bathroom renovations for, oh, the past 100 years or so. But with Baby’s arrival in April, we were very motivated to wrap up the lingering master bath remodel. We still have a few odds and ends (caulking and painting the trim, for example), but thanks to some hard work from D, almost right up till the due date, it’s currently at a “done enough” state… though I know the unpainted trim is still driving him a bit nuts.
When I wrote the post about our hall bathroom, I showed a rough sketch of the floor plan. We took the hall full bath and the master half bath and turned them into two full bathrooms by eating up a hall closet and a waste-of-space offshoot of the hallway. Sometimes I still miss the much needed storage that hall closet provided, but having a full master bathroom was well worth sacrificing the closet. Plus, we more than made up for it in the laundry room, but more on that later.
After all of the heavy lifting was done (we came home from work the day that the plumbers were there to find a trench literally running through our foundation and thought to ourselves, “OMG what were we thinking with this project??”), we started with lots of white paint and lots of white tile. After the dingy 1950s marbled black tile in the master bathroom and marbled banana yellow tile in the hall bathroom, we needed some clean, bright surfaces. And then we anchored it by painting the vanity in Benjamin Moore Hale Navy (I’m obsessed with this color and want to add splashes of it everywhere) and adding pendant lights, bamboo blinds, a gold mirror, and a rug.
I’m exhausted just looking back at the “during” photos…
