We were so excited about the idea of finally having a dedicated master bathroom! I know it is a luxury, not necessity, but it is so nice to shower without the desperate sound of little hands knocking on the door in need of the restroom.
In this house the bathroom required total demolition and remodel. It started out very small, covered in pink and gold, and not very functional in design. We really wanted to have a double vanity and a little more space to make the bathroom more user friendly.
After removing the carpet and taking out the broken closets and desk, we enclosed the bathroom and the demolition portion was done. Now the fun process of picking out fixtures, tile, and paint! This meant endless trips to home improvement stores to the point that my kids would cry at the mention of their the name!
We chose the above tile for the bathroom floors.
We went with classic gray herringbone and white subway tile for the shower. And next came installation.
Jaclyn and I refinish furniture and had found this great console piece. We decided to paint and transform into our bathroom vanity. My husband and his buddy cut holes for our sinks to be installed. When all was said and done, including fixtures and sinks, our double vanity cost about $150!! We are very happy with the way it turned out.

For extra storage we bought this buffet at Ikea. It stores all toiletries, towels and cosmetics. It also gives us and extra counter to use when we are both getting ready. To hide clutter, I taped pretty wrapping poster paper onto the glass doors.
Hope you enjoyed the transformation! I am thrilled that our new master bathroom is light and bright with clean lines and a touch of character.
