Yes, I know. I’ve kept you waiting dear friends. Holiday breaking just felt so nice, and with the munchkin only 11-weeks out, we’ve been oh so busy in this little house of ours getting the abode/ourselves ready for our babes grand entrance.
One of the bigger(ish) things on my to-do list was to get our little bathroom gutted and revamped.
Truth be told, I’m pretty smitten with how the space turned out!
True to form, we installed one of my favorite bathroom looks, a marble herringbone tile.
We love a clean and traditional look, so we decided to go with a nice crisp white subway tile for the tub surround. The room feels so much brighter, and less dingy now!
Knowing that every inch of space counted in our tiny little loo, we also decided to try something new for this renovation, and installed an inset within the shower for shampoo and other shower essentials.
It’s the perfect size for all our bathroom beauty products – I’m so SO glad we decided to do this!
Working off the finish on the tub, I snagged these sconces from Home Depot for $30 each. Can’t beat the price. and love how they look in the space. Simple and elegant.
We lucked out with our toilet, which, believe it or not – only cost us $40! Here in Durham, there is a local rebate for $100 for any household that replaces an old toilet, with a new efficient model. We went from a toilet that used 3.5 gallons per flush, to this one, which uses 1.09 gallons per flush. For a pregnant women that tinkles more than I ever thought humanly possible, I’m pretty sure this was $40 well spent
Another cost cutter in this space was our sink! Initially we planned on just reusing the old one, but alas, once we got the new toilet in, we realized it didn’t fit! We landed up selling the old kohler on craigslist for $80, and finding this pedestal sink at the habitat for humanity reuse store for $11. WIN.
Jay and I each have a favorite thing about our newly renovated bath. For me, I think I’ve found my new paint color. Benjamin Moore Pale Oak. It’s delish perfection.
Jay’s favorite add on – the new mega sized shower head. Sitting in the lap of luxury peeps.
So there you have it! Our new bath. Man, it feels good to have that one off the list!
