The Guest Bath Reveal

6.23.2014

It's done! This project took a bit longer because I had to wait for Mr. Savvy to do the parts he did and it finally all came together this weekend. It is super hard to get good photos in this tiny space, but I did the best I could. This was by no means a major bathroom overhaul, but just by removing shower doors, changing out the light and mirror, and painting the room and hardware made it look new and fresh and not stuck in the nineties anymore. Lots of photos to share all the details.

This is the best full shot I could get from standing outside the bathroom and then it was hard to get the lighting right since I have to have the lights on in the room or it would be totally dark since there is no window.

Stood in the tub to get this shot. I love the new mirror and light. 

This is the best shot I have of the new light fixture without the light on.



This artwork was in the storage/hoarding room and decided to use it since this bathroom goes with the French country style guest room and this picture reminds me of all the beautiful boats we saw docked in Honfleur.

Bronze faucet replace the brass one.

Hand soap with the perfect name and a little vintage linen towel.

Ironstone bowl filled with hotel soaps.

Instead of purchasing a new bronze toilet handle and toilet paper holder Mr. Savvy painted them for me with bronze spray paint. Easy update.

This was a very shiny brass and he sands the finish so the spray paint will stick.

I found this rack at HomeGoods last week and decided to use it instead of a faux bamboo towel rack I had ordered from France. The rack was too small for this wall so I was thrilled to find this.

Ironstone pitcher filled with dried lavender and a stack of towels on top. Then I hung a French torchon and a tote bag made from a vintage grain sack and an old leather belt. I found the bag on ebay.

The inside is lined with vintage fabric.

Makes a good place to store the extra paper.

I'm loving my new shower curtain from the Pottery Barn outlet instead of the dated brass doors.

Love these shower rings from Target.

More towels stacked on this stool that has moved from the master bath to this bathroom.

Indoor outdoor rug from HomeGoods is perfect for the bathroom.

Wooden bowl we purchased in Hawaii years ago hold sea glass and shell potpouri.

I took a picture of this wastebasket so you could see it better. I have had this for many years and found it at Steinmart marked way down. I love the blue and white print on it and the crackle design. It was regularly $78 which I would never pay for a wastebasket and it was marked down to $22. 

I stole these knobs from the armoire in the other guest room and then replaced those.

I will share more about the blue plaque which is a piece I just painted, but I'm thinking it may need a little tweaking.


I think that about covers it all.
Now on to the next guest bath soon.

You can see the post with some of the product sources here.

I sure hope y'all have a fabulous week!

  8. Looks great! I am totally stealing the paint-the-handle-idea...man why didn't we think of that sooner?? Your rack from Homegoods is perfect, and I love the idea of the bags holding the paper. We bought the exact same mirror for the tiny bathroom in our new room over the garage (except it needs to be moved up one inch. :( ) Love your shower curtain and the wastepaper basket!

Love how you did everything Kim! I can imagine you running around from room to room looking for this and that... it all came together perfectly.

  16. The curtain is fabulous, and I love the idea of painting the hardware! Fixtures are so expensive this saved you a ton and kept a few things out of the landfills.

    As much as I love everything, would you believe my favorite is the bag holding the T/P?!! So cute!

    (We have the same mirrors in our master bath)

  17. Looks fabulous. I love the new fixtures too and your accessories are perfect. That shelf from Home Goods is a real find.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That turned out great! I like the softness of the shower curtain better than shower doors too. I'm sure your guests will appreciate the updates.

  23. It looks just lovely ! And I am over here checking out your fruit smoothie recipe...I think I have everything here ( just peaches versus berries ) and am going to make one for lunch :)

  25. Very cute, Kim! Love the blue. We had those bronzed fixtures in TX. I would just love to see that hoarding room. Ever going to show us? Or have you already?

  26. Unbelievable as it might seem, I think your bathroom is bigger than mine. I think mine is longer, but I couldn't fit a stool in there like you did. It's too narrow. Anyway, I love your idea of painting the brass fixtures bronze. I think I may steal that idea since I will be redoing my bathroom soon and was thinking of replacing the sink faucet and tank handle. Might not have to! Thanks and love the new bath!

  27. Looks great Kim! I think my favorite part is the vintage grain sack tote bag for holding the toilet paper - so clever!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Kim love the changes to this bathroom, especially that faucet. Great hair cut and color by the way, I saw it on FB.

  29. Great updates, Kim. I especially like the pretty shower curtain and rug. I'm still searching for a stool with a bit of character for our front hall half bath and I think yours is adorable and perfectly rustic.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Kim your guest bathroom turned out beautifull - there are so many things I like! Love the rack, the grainsack bag, the new mirror, the artwork, the blue and white trash can - everything is perfect - I know it makes you smile! Have a blessed week,
    Kathy

  32. What a great transformation - love all of the attention to detail…great rug and shower curtain and the stool with the towels…perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  33. No surprise that it looks great - everything you touch turns to perfect!

    I love that wire shelf and the bag holding TP. I think I might steal that idea. I have a great canvas bag I purchased at JCrew years ago and it will look great in the bathroom holding the extra TP.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

  34. I love your darling bathroom! The bag is an unique idea for holding bathroom tissue. Thanx for sharing.

  35. C'est si bon! I have taken out glass shower doors before, I really don't like them. The bath looks really nice. I like your mirror/light and accessories. Good thinking to Mr. Savy painting the hardware. Thanks for sharing.

  36. I love the blue accents in the shower curtain and rug! And that wood stool is to die for!

  38. Is there anything left to makeover in your house? What a great transformation....there are so many things I love starting with the rack you found at HG's!

  40. Awesome! Great updates to your bathroom but I love that you painted the flusher and the tp holder instead of buying new! Of course you know that I love all of your cute accessories! Great job, Kim

    ReplyDelete
  41. Kim I know how hard it is to shoot in a windowless bathroom and you did a great job. I love all the little touches in your re-model, as usual your style is impeccable!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great updates, Kim! What a difference it made to replace the mirror...I would not have thought it would have made that much of an impact. Thanks for the tip about painting some bathroom metal items instead of buying new ones.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Turned out great Kim and I love the extra tp holder!:)

    ReplyDelete
  44. What a pretty bathroom, I love the finishing touches, especially the luggage style wire rack for the towels. I plan to update my bathrooms in the near future and would love one of those racks if I can find one in NZ.

  47. Such a beautiful makeover, Kim! I love the new updates. You and the Mr. did a marvelous job.

  48. I love it!
    We've leased an apartment for 6 months...another step in house prep. Anyway...small, very small for two people and a Labrador Retriever. However, I plan to do "cute", anyway. Even if we are hoping to be there no longer than 6 months before the house sells. This bathroom reveal gave me some ideas to cozy up and make a home out of temporary lodging;
