I went back through the archives of the blog (back to when only my Dad, Stepmom and Grandma were reading) and found when we started the bathroom renovation…. August 2012. Wow, can we just get it on record that this will be our longest DIY in the history of ever! Nothing, and I’m talking to you, Kitchen RENO, will take this long. Seriously, I lost all direction, patience, motivation and excitement for this thing and that’s not a good place to be.

For those of you who don’t know, our goal with this DIY bathroom update was to modernize it and make it fit us without spending a ton of money. Our plan (2-5 years) is to enlarge the master bathroom by taking about 8 ft of this bathroom. At that time, this bathroom and the master bathroom will get an overhaul. I’ll be back on Friday with all the budget details, sources and why we did or didn’t do things (which will help clearly explain the longterm plans).

Without further adieu, enjoy the DIY Bathroom reveal pictures!

Before and After DIY Bathroom Renovation

This was our first large project that we started in the house. Before starting it, we had never done ANY electrical, plumbing, tile work, caulking, baseboards, etc. So, the learning curve was HUGE. Let’s just say we lived to tell the tale. Come back on Friday for all the nitty-gritty details! =)

    What a beautiful job! Found you this morning on #ondisplaythursday! I too have gone through the fun that is a bath remodel. It took over SIX MONTHS! But it is always worth it to transform something ugly into something functional that you love!

    Can you post an update on your string of pearls? Is the plant doing well in the bathroom? How often do you water and does the humidity affect it? Thanks!

    • says

      Hi Nancy, It’s still living in the bathroom. The humidity isn’t bad in there at all because it’s only a bathtub. I’m not sure what a consistent shower running would do to it. I water it once a week. Also, last summer, I took it outside and hung it off our patio and just left it alone. It seemed to do great out there. Overall, I think it’s a pretty easy plant to take care of. Hope that helps!

    I bookmark this one actually. I ‘ve seen lot of people choose white colour but here is the combination of different colours that looks good and give a stunning look to bathroom. This makes different even in the terms of items used like painting, decoration and even the selection of towel.
