Ali’s Bathroom Makeover

This past Labor Day I proposed the question to my significant other, “Signifcant other, what would you like to do this holiday weekend?” His answer: “Complete our bathroom makeover.” So we did. ***disclaimer: we like the color white.

Our bathroom had been quite a sore sight…pea green walls, a sink that was cracked and looked a bit like a urinal, a tub with chipped paint, no storage…overall blahness. The ultimate low was storing our bathroom goodies in tupperware containers or plastic bags on the floor under the sink.

So, starting with the sink area we redesigned the space to provide maximum storage within a small corner of the room. The walls were painted white, a new towel hanger was installed and the tub was painted black (this part was done some time ago).

Finally, all of our orphaned toiletries have a home and I can brush my teeth with a peaceful state of mind.

About Ali

I enjoy wood paneled station wagons, German food and senior citizens (I am 80 years old at heart). Nearly every weekend I am taking photos at other people's weddings and I have a blog of my own (but I don't update it often enough). I love to paint, sew and knit.

    I love it! I’m totally impressed that Cooper installed a new sink! But it looks marvelous.

    Congrats, it looks great! I’m giggling over the “urinal”!

    Side Note: I have a black and white clawfoot just like yours! Please submit to the pathetic clawfoot tubs group I keep trying to get going on flickr:

    The makeover is a success. I’m amazed at how it looks now compared to before. I’m very impressed.

    Hi! Where did you get the sink? I’ve been toying with a bathroom remodel myself and have been looking for a rectangular sink like that!

    Thanks for all the nice words guys! Alicia…the sink is actually from IKEA!! They fairly recently came out with a new line of bathroom sinks/faucets. I’m happy/shocked to say that really impressed with the quality of the product.

    Beautiful. Where did you find the towel hanger? We need something similar for our very teeny guest bathroom.

    Hey Lori, we actually made the towel hanger. Just a nice piece of walnut and some hangers fixtures! Cheap and easy.
