Pinterest Inspired Bathroom Re-do

John and I moved in to our house in 2009. Well, he did and I "unofficially" lived here for a few months until I officially moved in in May 2010.

We have a townhome that has 2 bedrooms (both considered masters) and 2 full bathrooms upstairs connected to each bedroom. Even though we have OUR bedroom, we call that his bedroom since that is where all of his clothes are and he uses that bathroom. We don't sleep in MY bedroom, but that is where my bathroom is, where my clothes are and where I get ready in the morning.

So anyway, my bathroom has been needing an update for a long time. When we moved in, it had this ugly pinkish tile, horrible knobs and an ugly sliding shower door. I didn't want to spend a lot of money with decorations because I honestly I hated the way it looked. So, I went to walmart and bought a few things to help spruce it up a little bit.

This picture is from when we first moved in... You can't really see the knobs but they are white with ugly flowers on them. Not really my style!



This was after a few updates (new knobs and a few decorations) but before the new tile and the latest updates...


Finally, after about a year of living here, we got new tile installed! 


And then when we got engaged I knew it was time to finally make the bathroom how I really wanted it! I REALLY wanted to knock out the sliding door but that's not exactly in our budget so I went to pinterest to find ways to make it work. 

I found a few pins that really helped with my inspiration... 




So we registered for all new things (for both of our bathrooms!) and went to work on making some of these pinterest visions come to life... 










I am SO happy with how my bathroom looks now! Of course there are some things I would like to change - new cabinets, new sink, new light fixtures, new mirror, etc, but those aren't in our budget! haha! This made a huge difference with the way the bathroom looks and it makes me alot happier in the mornings when I'm getting ready in here :) Who would have thought just hanging a shower curtain over the door and putting a few pieces of scrapbook paper in frames would make such a difference? 

Hopefully in the next few months we will be getting the cabinets and walls painted and a new vanity top! :)

It looks so much brighter and cheery! I did the same thing with my bathroom but my glass doors just screwed in around the frame and I used some silicone to fill the screw holes. Such a difference!

Kristine said...

I love the mix of colors you used. The bf and I have been making a list of all the little home improvement projects we want to do this summer and the bathroom is one of them!

Becca Moss said...

It looks great! We have done very minimal to our bathroom since buying it and I'm really wanting to do spice it up a bit. We did do tile in there before we moved in though.

It looks great. I love the shower curtain! And I love that your cat photo bombs some of the pictures. I have never had a house with a shower door like that, but is it super hard to take down? Because looking at it, you would think you could just take it down and hang a rod and a curtain like you did, but I am guessing there is a lot more to it. Does it leave holes?

Lauren said...

I LOVE the renovations! It looks so nice!

Great renovations!

Where did you get that shower curtain? I'm obsessed with bold colors and the chevron design.
