Before and After Bathroom Renovation

Sorry for the radio silence you guys! Jay and I have been working like mad beasts to get this bathroom finished so you can see a good before and after bathroom renovation and we’ve been pretty consumed with a world full of tile and toilets as of late. Very glamorous πŸ˜€

So, this is the official shot of the bath before, pre-demo days.

Bathroom Upstairs Before

It was fine, really, and in complete honesty we could have just cleaned the hello dolly out of it and bought a nice shower curtain and called it done. But I knew sooner or later I’d want to gut this baby, and my mantra is “no time better than the present” πŸ˜‰

Plus, my kid sister Rachel is moving in next week (WHHAA??) and Jay and I have been using the bath off her room for the past 6-months, so we wanted to spruce up this upstairs bath so that we had a nicer place to suds up in the am.

My biggest beef with this space was that it was just ugly, and not really my jam.

Black Diamond Tile in Tub

It was redone (to look vintage) sometime in the 90’s. As we started in on the demo work for the bathroom renovation, we realized how poorly the work had been done, which made me feel better about ripping it all out :)

Although it may be functional, another ugly vote (in my book) was the ginormous mirror that took up half the bathroom. Oh, and the light about it, not so much man, not so much.

For the last few months I have been scrubbing lots and lots in this room, and there are certain stains that just did not want to budge. Kinda gross, kinda ugly.

And overall, it just felt like the room was getting eaten up by stained tile. On the walls, in the tub, it was just a bit overwhelming.

Another annoying detail – the only storage – in the entire bathroom – was this little rinky dink medicine cabinet.

It just wasn’t a very functional space, so you know me, I got the itch to fix it.

Here is my inspiration board for the space. We’re finishing up the tile work today, andΒ I should definitely have some details on the space for you next week! πŸ˜€ WOOT!

  1. Love the inspiration board Mary! We actually looked at that hexagon tile for our kitchen backsplash, I just love it! We’ll be doing a phase 1 update to our downstairs bathroom, so I look forward to seeing how yours goes!
