Bathroom Pictures: Before and After

by Andrea on May 25, 2011 · 6 comments

We are more or less done with what we planned to do to our guest bathroom so I thought it was high time for some bathroom pictures! Ultimately, we would love to do a complete overhaul but it was definitely not in the budget for phase 1 of house updates.

Since most of the tile and fixtures were white, we figured we can live with it a little while longer. The main issues were the doors, the walls and the nasty yellowed grout. All things we were able to fix! Oh yeah and some stick-on green, vinyl tile decals with butterflies on them…..

We decided to work from the colors in a print we got on our honeymoon. Since there are no windows, we didn’t want to go too dark. Thankfully, the white accents helped out in the lightness department and we have ourselves a bathroom! Other quick fixes included switching from brass to brushed nickel doorknobs, adding a new light fixture and vanity mirror, painting the walls and doors.
