My parents half bath makeover..

Happy New Year!!
Out with the old and in with the new.
My sweet and supportive parents wanted to update their down stairs half bath. Who'd they call....ME! I was so excited to get started!
This is or should I say WAS my parents half bath. They really wanted a change from the jungle theme! I don't blame them. We needed a change, and quick!
Everytime I washed my hands I thought I would be attacked my the camel or elephant! AHHHH!
The main goal was to update and brighten up the space.
Me, my mom and sister ripped all the wall paper off. It is pretty easy just get a spray bottle of water and saturate the wall you are working on then find a corner and get ripen! The whole room needed anew paint job. we cleared out the accessories and wiped the whole place down.
You can't se very good in this pictures but all the hardware and lighting are brass...hmmm not the look they were going for. We took  off the light and  spray painted it a dark brown color and rubbed them with some bronze paint. WOW what an improvement!  
We changed out the hardware, toilet paper holder and towel bar for new oil rubbed bronze ones from Lowes. The framed oval mirror is also from Lowes. .My hubby just so happens to be a plumber so we got a good deal on a nice new oil rubbed bronze faucet.
We put up some board and batten and painted the walls a creamy light tan color.
We left the ceiling white, to keep things bright. There is NO windows or any sort of natural light in this bathroom.

This is a hard wall to decorate. It is one huge curved wall so you can't hang pictures or anything on it.
With the help of my sister and parents we all made this project a success. It took us a months or longer. That is how a project goes when you are busy.
My mom went and purchased some new towels and accessories.
Picture frames were clearance at Michaels. She got the Door prints off and framed them.
Here the before and after's close together
What remodels are you planning for the new year?
I have to many ideas and just not enough time or money :(
But I have great plans for 2014!!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
Thanks for your support!


  1. It looks beautiful and so updated! You guys did a great job!

  2. This is a very nice look. I like that you kept it fairly simply I'm not a fan of "too much" going on in the bathroom. Good Job!

    1. Lynn, Thanks for stopping by. Yeah I like simple bathrooms too. Less to clean :)
