Here is a picture of the master bath with the previous owner's items. But other than removing the popcorn ceilings/rug/window treatment/storage over the toilet, our bathroom looked like this for TWO YEARS. !!!
I had the walls painted a creamy white (Creamy by Sherwin Williams) and all of the trim painted gray (Useful Gray by Sherwin Williams)
Here are pictures of the bathroom as it is now (you'll have to excuse the bad iPhone photos... I'll save the pretty photography for the real afters! These are just "during" shots...)
It feels so much lighter and brighter, and cleaner! But there is still so much to do....
As you can tell, the floors are in DIRE need of changing. The vinyl is so old and so nasty and so dirty, no matter how hard I clean them. And now that the walls are fresh, the floors feel so much worse. (We're also in need of window treatments.. I think I'm going to do cafe curtains).
The counters and shower surround are original to the house and are a creamy faux marble. I've decided to just save the difference and keep them. Sure it'd be wonderful to have everything new and exactly how I want it, but we've decided with this house to do what really needs to be done and live with what we can live with.
I've 99.99% nailed down the bathroom floor tile. It's this tile from The Tile Shop:
It's the same tile Young House Loved used in their kitchen but in the color "Milk". I adore it. And best part is - the milky cream color of the tile matches the existing countertops. I'm planning on a light gray grout that matches the trim paint color.
I can't wait to do the floors!!
