If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I’ve been hard at work getting the shower in our master bathroom tiled. I am so close to being finished and hopefully by this weekend, we’ll be able to use it – eek!
Our bathroom renovation started at the end of April when we had our favorite floor people come rip out the tile. We had them come remove the floors before I had even purchased the new floor tile, something I would not recommend you do. Walking on raw concrete floors for months is really annoying. But the floor going was the first step of our reno. When I decided I was going to build a shower myself, I knew it was going to take some time because I had never done that before.
Anyway, I’ve been working on the bathroom since the end of April and I seriously can’t wait to get it done and show it to you guys! I wanted to share my inspiration for the bathroom since I can’t share the actual bathroom yet.
We have a large, frosted window in our bathroom that lets in a ton of natural light. Because of this, I new we could do something moody if we wanted, especially if I put some shiplap or board and batten along the bottom portion of the walls.
Eventually, I decided I wanted to keep it lighter because I wanted it to feel super clean and fresh, even at night.
I wish we had it in the budget to replace our vanity. While I love having a double vanity, ours has so much dead space and I’m 95% confident that a new vanity would give us about twice the amount of storage. New vanities are really expensive though and paint is much less expensive, so after I tried (and failed) to figure out how to work a new vanity into our budget, we decided to just give it a fresh coat of paint.
I wanted to bring in a fun color with the vanity in order to break up all the nuetrals.

Picking out tile out is so exciting for me. There are a ton of colors, shapes, and sizes that are fun to mix and match. Plus, J said he would trust whatever I chose – yippee!
Ah, the throne room, privé, water closet…whatever you call it, it’s the separate, little room that houses the toilet. I wanted to something super fun in this space. It’s a small area and can look really boring, so why not spice it up?
I thought wallpaper floor to ceiling would be a little too much for J, so I settled on shiplap on the bottom half and wallpaper on the top. This was still a tough sell, but J trusted me and it turned out so well, I can’t wait to share it!
So there you have it! After months of scouring Pinterest for inspiration and trying to think of every last detail, we almost have our master bathroom back – yay!
