Our Guest Bath Remodel: Before & After

February was so much of an intense month with renovation, that I've needed about two months to recoup. But, as promised, here are the photos from our bath remodels! I'll show you the guest bath today, and then the master tomorrow! 

In a small house, I think it just really makes sense to keep the bathrooms the same, or very similar in style and finishes. For this remodel, we put the same floor tile and shower tile in both bathrooms. They both actually have the same wall color too (although that was an accident, more on that later!). Both rooms feel bigger and more cohesive. 

Ok, let's get into the photos! 

Here's some back-in-the-day photos I found of this guest bathroom.. Yikes! 

The above photo is from the house listing. 
I have no idea how the previous family lived with this! 
Notice: full wall mirror, honey oak cabinet with no knobs, 
vinyl flooring, super dark brown paint

And this (above) photo was right as we moved in. 
We made some minimal changes, and the first to go was that large wall mirror. 
We also lightened it up with a neutral paint. 

Then we made various other changes over the two years, but this photo from October of last year, was the only one I could find. 
Notice: dark stained cabinet with knobs, new toilet, new light fixture, new faucet, beadboard, and a more bold paint. 
I was going for a pumpkin color, but it ended up looking Tuscan-inspired, aka absolutely hideous. 
A few weeks later I finally painted because it looked so awful, 
and used some leftover blue paint from the master bath. 

Ok, now that we've seen this bathroom's multiple changes, let's get into the demo!!! 

Wow! That was quick! 

Much better! 

We had the guys re-tile the floor, and re-tile the shower stall up to the ceiling. 
I also got a deeper soaking tub. Yay!


After the guys finished the shower stall, tub, and flooring, 
we had a little bit of money to finally get a new sink vanity top. 

I can't even believe it, but this entire room is complete. 
It's 100% finished, and 100% beautiful! 

What do you think?
