Sharing before pictures and moodboard for the Primp and Pamper Bathroom challenge where I share my Guest Bathroom Plans.
Remember that time last spring when I was sharing shots of me ripping out my bathroom carpet? Or that time over the summer where I was asking for your opinion on bathroom art? Yeah…I remember that too! Have you noticed that I have not posted anything about the bathroom makeover since sharing progress shots in instagram stories? I bet some of you are wondering… whatever happened to that bathroom?….Did something go wrong?…Has she changed her mind already? Sadly folks, I haven’t posted it because…well, I have been a slacker. In fact the bathroom is already completed but was just missing some minor details…like a toilet paper holder, towel bar, etc…
When Jewel from Jeweled Interiors asked me about doing a bathroom remodel, I was like, “OMG, this would be the best time for me to debut my bathroom” (imagine said in a valley girl accent because that is exactly how my kids think I sound…you should see/hear them imitate me. It is quite hilarious). If you are hopping over from Corrina’s page over at A Designer at Home, Welcome! I cannot wait to see her bathroom boho makeover!!! On another note, I am happy to participate in this Prochallenge because this bathroom was not even on my to-due list for 2018 until she asked. Get ready for this….(see image below)
I love the vanity. It has the original brass hardware still attached and is a great size. All in all this bathroom is pretty spacious. In fact, I think it may be as big as some of the bedrooms they put in newer homes…no shade, just facts.
The Cinderella tub is one of my favourite features in this bathroom, but I hate the tiling. I am not down with glass mosaic tile. However, it will stay until I can pay someone to retile it for me. I wish they would have kept the original tile work. From my guess, it probably was pink. I could have rocked that easily. I haven’t touched the windows in my bathroom yet, but I have been browsing many websites looking for shutters as they are booming in style at the moment. A friend recommended me this website, shuttercraft-warwick.co.uk, and they appear to have a wide range of products and offer shutter fitting services too!
Here is a moodboard with what I would have liked my bathroom to look like. I can tell you now, it does not look 100% like this but it is almost there. I pulled up my carpet last spring and discovered that the original pink flooring was still there, so I decided to rock it to save money. The flooring was the inspiration for this moodboard…it is definitely a mix of vintage and boho. I had considered ways to restore the flooring to a better condition, including by choosing to click here to learn the pros and cons of using a Chemical Coat, Natural Coat and UV Cured Polyurethane for your timber floor finish. It was an educational experience, but not one we made use of this time around. Perhaps in the future we will, though. I was also planning on adding some Oak Vanity Units for guests to wash their face and get ready for the day in, however, these turned out to be rather pricey and I was trying to make this bathroom look good on a budget.
Well guys, this does it for week one of the Primp and Pamper challenge. For more bathroom inspiration be sure to stop by My Eclectic Nest! I cannot wait to see her plans for her bathroom!
