This bathroom has been a long time in the making and while most of the work was completed before I started my blog, I finally finished this room up!

Here are a few before photos. Nothing horrible, but definitely not our style. The bathroom was a huge selling point for me on this house because I could see all the potential in this space.

The first thing I did was redo this shower – I’m going to put together a dedicated blog post just for that because dang, that was a project and a half. The new and improved shower is awesome, though, if I do say so myself. Like, it might be the best thing about this whole room!

Then I laid these great large hexagon floor tiles (I have a tutorial on tiling here). With how in style these are right now, I was shocked at how difficult it was to find large hex tiles that didn’t cost an arm and two legs. I found ours at Floor and Decor and their low price point still saved us money even after having to pay for really expensive shipping.

This was a picture I took mid-project, so that grout haze is all cleaned up now 😉

I knew I wanted the walls white but I also knew I wanted a little color, so I painted the vanity BM Polaris Blue after seeing this inspiration from Studio McGee.

Here’s my tutorial for how to paint vanities.

Jordan replaced the light fixtures with these that I found on Amazon and we matched the hardware to the stuff I just put in the laundry room, which matches the new faucets perfectly (which I can’t find the link for anywhere! We bought them over a year ago, so they could be discontinued).

Does that crooked drawer bother you? Because it bothers me. Every. Single. Day.

I tried out BM White Dove on the walls, but even though I love it where I’ve used it in other spots in my house, it was reading really green in here. So I repainted it BM Simply White and it couldn’t be a prettier white.

After using this bathroom for over a year with no towel hooks (see, I don’t actually have my life together haha), I finally figured out the placement and installed these for bath towels and these for our hand towels. I also built a few thin floating shelves to go over the hooks for some texture and warmth and because, well, is there a room that’s not made better by shelves? Haha.

Okay, so there are too many elements of this room that I love so it’s impossible for me to pick a favorite, but I do really, really love this little water closet. I installed this olive branch wallpaper right over my textured walls and over a year later (keep in mind we live in a very humid place), it hasn’t budged an inch. Then I put faux shiplap around the bottom half of the room and bam. Super cute place to use the restroom (lol).

And that’s that! I can finally check our master bathroom off as “done!” At least until I find something else to add or tinker with in there 😉

With love,
Mercedes ♥
