Amazing Bathroom Remodel {The Big Reveal!}

I’m beyond thrilled to share this bathroom remodel reveal with you. It feels like it’s taken forever and a day. Honestly, there are still a few cosmetic things that still need to be done, but I’m not waiting any longer to spill this to you.

What started out with a desire to replace the massive sink cabinet with a pedestal sink turned into a huge undertaking. I’m so thankful that we are *almost* done.

What looked like this…

Now…looks like this…

{happy, happy squeals!!}

I could just stand or sit in the hall and drool gaze at this room. I’m so so so pleased with how it turned out. Not to mention how glad I am that the poop brown paint color is gone!  I chose Behr’s Vast Desert for the walls.  It’s a fabulous color!

My husband is a champ.  He is a huge support and provided a ton of manpower {and many hours} to renovate this bathroom.  Love you babe, like SO much!

The bathroom reflects my “collected” style. I love many different time periods and styles, so I just go with it. :)  Rules are for breaking, right??

The yard sale nightstand that I recently made over is perfect for the bathroom. I love having the storage as well as an extra surface since the pedestal sink doesn’t have a huge rim.

I found this basket at Target to hold the tp. :)


We kept the original medicine cabinet mirror because there is concern about asbestos in the plaster walls.  So, until we get that tested, we’re keeping wall changes to a minimum. :)

I saved a piece of the original hardwood that we ripped out.  It’s stamped with the manufacturer and location where it was made. I love that it’s now hanging on the wall! :)

I made the shower curtain and window treatment. I’ll be sharing those tutorials with you soon!  I’m so happy with how they look!

These little thrifted Avon bottles are just too cute!

I a-d-o-r-e this wooden box that I found at TJ Maxx a few days ago. I bought it to plant herbs in, but I’m pretty hooked on it being in the bathroom now. I also got the aqua bottle from TJ’s too.  The pod-ish things are from my granny’s funeral from 3 1/2 years ago. I’m so glad I saved them!

I got this cute cup from my friend Layla when she and Rhoda had a fun yard sale last year.  Love it!


I promise I cleaned the mirror! {blush} It’s just showing it’s age. Ha!

{at night – with the “out of order” sign still on the door}

Classy, huh?

{Side by Side Before & After}

The money scoop on this project is pretty awesome.  Our landlady is taking care of the floor costs – approximately 200.00.  My hubs and I {well, mostly my hubs} did the labor.  For everything else {sink, faucet, plumbing supplies, light fixture, paints, molding, fabric, accessories etc.} we paid less than 400.00. I purchased four new accessories for this space – HOPE in the window, the aqua bottle, yellow box and artificial {shhhhhh} grass. :)

Now all I want to do is go to the bathroom ’cause it’s so pretty in there! Ha!

Have a fab day y’all!!

  2. Frances Kalender says:

    You & hubby did a FANTASTIC job!!! I want to come to your house and use your potty! lolol
    Wish I had a sewing machine to make such pretty shower curtains! I have all my granddaughter’s receiving blankets that I would like to re-use, but means to do it :(
    You are very talented indeed! Now go grab a glass of wine and sit on your toilet and enjoy! :)

  3. What a beautiful makeover. Love the pops of turquoise. The cabinet looks perfect!

    • Thank you for your sweet comment Vanessa! I’m thrilled with how the turquoise and yellow came together. :)

  4. Just gorgeous!!! :)

  5. Oh Myra – It is beautiful! So glad it is done and that you shared it with all of us. I love the colors and the curtain is perfect!

  6. Myra, it is just beautiful. Well done and I love that you left the tile–such caracter. Your shower curtain looks very much like drapes I made for my oldest daughters room (the style, not fabric) so of course I think it is just the greatest. Hope you have a great week.

    Cha Cha

  7. Beautiful! Y’all did a fantastic job!! I love that new paint color and adore the wall art especially that square piece with different colors. You are so talented!!

  8. Oh, what a huge difference. I just love it! Love the colors, love that you kept the yellow tile, love all of the little details! It just looks wonderful, you should be so stinkin’ proud of yourselves.

  9. It turned out FABULOUS!!

  10. Wow! What an improvement! I love that you didn’t tackle the tiling and such…just changing out other things made it fade into the background. Are you serving breakfast in there ;-) ?!

  11. Yeah! So excited to see the final outcome!! It looks fabulous, Myra! I’m really, really loving the window treatment. I can never think outside the box like that. It looks fabulous!

    • Thanks Tricia!! That window treatment almost had me stumped, but I just went with my gut and I’m so tickled with the outcome! :)

  12. Gorgeousness girly! LOVE the shower curtain, window treatment, and all the sweet accessories!

    • Thanks Beth! It was so fun to make it pretty after the grunt work was done. :) As I’m sure you well understand. Ha!

    You like surprise guests, right?
    I may just have to jump in the car and come see what you guys are doin’ up there in person sometime! :-D

  14. I’m so honored to have such a talented friend! You’re a constant inspiration to me, Myra, as I take on more and more rooms in this house. :)

  15. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

  16. It’s beautiful!! I love it….and now I want to go and re-do my bathroom!

  17. Amanda E says:

  25. It looks great Myra! Amazing transformation! Love the colors you chose! All of the details & accessories really make the room!!

  26. You go girl, it it looking FAB!!!! Love the new floors! Woo hoo! Now if I could only harness some of that energy to finish my bathroom this week. :-)

  27. I can soooo relate to your bathroom update. My husband and I like to update our home but it always takes us sooooo long to remodel. We finally updated our antiquated family room. I was hoping we could get it done in less than a year. It is finally done and we were able to do it in less than 1 year! Your bathroom remodel is absolutely fabulous! It really looks like the pictures came out of a magazine. I am not kidding! I love ALL of the changes. WOW – WOW – WOW!!!!

  28. It’s gorgeous! Love all the vintage-y decor. And I just adore that yellow rim of tiles against the color of the walls.

  29. Wow Myra. Wow. I love it!

  30. YAY for you! It’s beautiful Myra! I’m so proud of you! Where did the shutter come from (since not from me)? Love you!

  31. It looks great! I can’t decide on just one thing to comment on because I like all of it! Now I’m wishing for a pedestal sink…would you believe our bathroom is a lot smaller than yours?

  32. SO beautiful Myra!! It’s absolute perfection!

  33. Myra,

    Gorgeous! I would sit there and swoon drool with you too!

    Love all the little touches


  34. Gorgeous! Now that you’re done with your bathroom, feel free to come over and give mine a facelift. lol

  35. Myra- You guys did a wonderful job!!! I love love love the curtain and the vintage yellow tile around the middle:)

  36. I literally can’t decide what to fawn over first! It. Looks. Awesome! I’m so impressed. Love all of the gilded frames- they totally add awesome sparkle. Adding the nightstand next to the sink is a great idea- we too suffer from pedestal-sink-itis. Oh and the draped curtain, so fun!

  37. Myra, it is really gorgeous! Hats off to you and your husband, and what a deal! $400!!!


  38. Looks great Myra! I’m also very glad to see the poop brown color gone! :)

  39. Stacey Simpson says:

    Wonderful! I love how it all turned out!!! You did a wonderful job…so inspiring! I love you blog & can’t wait for your tutorials on the curtain & shower curtain!

  40. Oh, Myra! I needed this inspiration today! Thank you! It’s the first day of sun in weeks so I broke out the paint – wall paint, not art paint (ha!) and started in on the new/old house.

    Our upstairs bathroom is beyond . . . waaaay beyond ugly. I have a few ideas in mind, but unfortunately it’s way down on the priority list. Seeing what you’ve accomplished though gives me hope. And it’s sooo cute! Congrats!

  41. Ann Miller says:

    Very nice, Myra! Two thumbs up to you and your hubby, and to your landlady! You make it look so effortless! It’s classy, chic, and comfy all in one. Love it!

  42. Myra, I am swooning!!! I love the window treatments, and the new sink is perfect. Job well done. :)

  43. Thanks for coming to remind me! I love it all :) the curtain and shower curtain especially!!

  44. Your bathroom is beautiful!

  45. "Aunt Phyllis" says:

    Beautiful job, you two! I always laugh when I see a book in a bathroom, (who wants to stay in there that long?), but you can just bask in your accomplishment.

  46. Great job, Myra! It looks wonderful! I know you are so glad to have it completed. Enjoy! :)

  47. Wonderful transformation! The personal touches like the piece of flooring are great. I also love your photographs- they are lit beautifully.

  48. Love your color choices, Myra! What a transformation– have you stopped pinching yourself yet? :)

  49. The bathroom looks amazing. What a great transformation.

  51. Gorgeous and happy now!! :)

  52. BEAUTIFUL makeover!! Looks so nice!

  53. Wow, what a transformation. It doesnt even look close to the same space. I adore the yellow and aqua combo and your gallery wall is so pretty. My hubby just did a lot of work in our kitchen redo, I say we put he really did the work, I just directed :)

  67. Myra, It looks absolutely beautiful. You are amazing! xoxo

  68. Everything looks sooooo wonderful. You make it look so easy. How about the light fixture over the sink…can you share your source??

  69. Heather Hileman says:

    I’m new here, but absolutely LOVE your bathroom remodel!! I’m so in to the aqua/turquoise/powder blue look this year! Not sure if you are open to any suggestions, but we also have a pedestal sink, and I hated how I could see the tubes and pipes and such from underneath the bowl. I managed to create a hoop-curtain for around the bottom. I LOVE IT! I basically just attached a hoop around the top of the pedestal leg, at the bottom of the bowl and made a mini shower curtain. Not only does it cover the tubes and such, but it accents our bathroom amazingly, and we can even manage to store my son’s step stool underneath it. :) Just a suggestion! GREAT JOB!!

  70. I love the multicolored square wall piece beside the sink!! Can you post the DYI instructions on how to make it? If you already have, I can’t seem to find them. Have a Blessed day. :)

  71. I can’t wait til I can remodel a bathroom We’re still renting but hopefully not for long

  72. Myles Rowley says:

    Hi Myra! I discovered your fabulous blog today and adore it! I just love this bathroom re-do…we have the exact same size/shape guest bath and I have been looking for some serious inspiration!! Love your fabric and all your fun accents! Can I ask you what the paint color is that you used? It is such a great neutral! Thanks and great job!!
    Myles :)

  73. Great job so much more cozy and looks beautiful

  74. Kahl Sanders says:

    I love this bathroom! Beautiful! I am dying for all the details on the shower curtain! Did you buy fabric for the top or is it a shower curtain you changed??? Dying for the info!!! Thanks! Great job!

  75. I have the same yellow tile in my new bathroom and I honestly will probably want to trade it out, eventually, we know a good tile guy. But I’m in no rush & your bathroom makeover is inspiring :) We weren’t sure what color to paint the walls above the tile. Currently it is wallpaper.


  1. […] She has so many amazing details that just flow together so timelessly.  I tried to pick an after picture but, y’all, I just couldn’t.  The were all so wonderful and because of the small angles in this room they wouldn’t all fit in one pic.  So I picked a simple one so that you would leave you wanting more and HAVING to go visit her at My Blessed Life.
