This is the before of one of the upstairs bathrooms.
This was my bathroom growing up.
See this tile?
It kept me company all through the Aqua Net years.
If you look closely you might see a few bits of blue eyeshadow left over from 1989.
I love the bathroom. I actually have a soft spot for the tile.
They are a changing.
I want to walk through the plans we have for this bathroom and where we are in the process and what the bathroom looks like now.
The bathroom is located between two upstairs bedrooms. It has this one tiny sink with a small cabinet underneath and a mirrored cabinet up above. It used to have mirrors on either side of the cabinet. You’d kind of stick your head in there to check the back of your hair or get a close-up of your mascara. Somewhere along the way the mirrors were taken down and the walls were painted black with a fish mural on them.
Notice the wildlife theme.
Here’s the side of the sink with one of the doors leading into a bedroom.
These are the same five paneled doors from downstairs that were refinished.

Somewhere along the way the room got painted turquoise.
Maybe to match the floor?
This is the tile from the 50’s.
I actually really like the color, but the pieces are damaged and they don’t make this tile anymore.
The plan for the bathroom is to take out the window (it’s super damaged because it’s a window in a SHOWER) and tile all the way up to the ceiling.
I’m a style pro for Jeffrey Court (this incredibly amazing tile brand that is found at Home Depot) and they are partnering with me on the tile for this project.
We are using this tile from Jeffrey Court with a light gray grout for the shower and walls on either side.
It has the prettiest edge to it and it’s slightly smaller than subway tile I’ve used in another bathroom and I love it.
I think the grout will make it pop.
This turquoise tile is coming out.
And it’s being replaced with this tile from Jeffrey Court.
I know it’s a lot of white with white on top.
So are you ready for the pop of color?
This is the shower curtain.
This bathroom is for the twins, so I wanted all that classic and white to be topped off with a little bit of fun.
The faucets and towel bars and hardware will all be brass to give the room a little shine and there’s the cutest chandelier that goes at the top of the space.
So are you ready to see where we are now?
Are you ready to see how far the bathroom has come?
Are you ready to see a little before and during?
Looks like this.
And this space?
Looks like this.
Here’s another during.
The wall is being extended to allow for a double vanity and mirrors (one for each of the twins).
The tile is going in this weekend, so hopefully, I’ll have more pictures next week.
I can’t believe how far this bathroom has come.
But more importantly?
I can’t wait to show you where it’s headed. 🙂
