Master Bathroom Makeover
Today, I want to share with you the master bathroom makeover. It all started when we gave the master bedroom a makeover as part of the One Room Challenge in May. The master bedroom went from this…
Totally drastic, right? So, as you can imagine we were excited and exhausted after working on that space and decided a long DIY break was in order. Of course, I wanted to roll right into the next project but sometimes you gotta wait a hot minute and catch your breath. Here’s the thing though…every time I walked into the bathroom it looked like this…
I mean, it didn’t even look like it was supposed to be in the same house much less connected to the master bedroom. I quietly started making a list of simple things I could do to makeover the bathroom. No major DIYing or construction zone messes just easy updates that could be completed in a few days. Things like adding a new rug…
collecting accent pieces that could help marry details from the bedroom to the bathroom…
adding fun plants (does anyone else think this resembles my wild curly hair ha ha),
trimming out the window,
changing out the curtains (these are actually a darker gray when the early morning sun is not shining on them. They’re from IKEA),
using vintage pieces that could double as a place to hold magazines, drinks and mud masks or provide storage if needed,
finding creative containers for bath salts,
I’ve been waiting to use this little scoop for so long!
This decorative metal piece was the one of the only decorative items that was previously used in the bathroom. It’s a total beast so it wasn’t an option to move at all.
That being said, it made for a neutral backdrop for these bathtub ledges to become a revolving art gallery of sorts. You may recognize some of these fun finds from previous treasure trail posts…
We wanted to keep the details of the sinks and cabinets as clutter free as possible which means a simple container of greenery from our Texas Sage bush,
and amber colored soap dispensers were in order.
While there are a lot of masculine elements in the room, you guys know I love all things girly so it seemed fitting to add this vintage slip that belonged to my Granny just for the photos. We’ll hang plush towels from the towel holders for every day though.
None of these changes were big, time consuming, caused major messes or cost a lot of money. Yet together, they refreshed a space that once looked like this…
into a space that now looks like this and in the process helped to unite the bathroom with the bedroom and offer a retreat space to rest and relax.
We found a chandelier a few years ago, we’re hoping to hang. It’s pretty rusty and crusty and needs a few replacement crystals. But if you look past all that it’s gorgeous and perfect for the master bathroom. I’m hoping my dad is going to be able to rewire it so we can hang it up soon, I’ll keep you posted.Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
WOW CoCo – we love the master bathroom makeover! You’re right…nothing majorly construction wise or painted. But the difference is transformational! Love all the vintage details and additions. Those ledges are fabulous for displays and we really like your vignettes. Great job!
