Master Bath (Before & After)

so... a little back story. 
a couple of weeks ago, I helped bestie paint their living room.
then I sneezed, but I knew it was too late. I caught the painting bug.

We've been wanting to makeover our master bath for a while, but since no one really goes in there but us... we've been focusing our efforts on other parts of the house. Until last week when I started painting test spots all over everything. (that kinda commits ya)

here are the before and after side by side:



We (and I say we because I had a lot of help from the hubs, and my parents. I really appreciate yall appeasing my whim!) basically painted the walls, the trim, the window, the doors, and the vanity. Then we changed out the vanity hardware, rehung our towel holder, and used our existing shower hooks to hang a new curtain. 
I am absolutely obsessed with how it turned out. I am in total love... I wanna pee like every 5 minutes.











the details:

wall paint color: Martha Stewart Love-in-a-mist (color matched to BEHR paint... martha paint does not "cover" as well... in my opinion)
trim/door paint color: BEHR frost
vanity paint color: BEHR elephant skin
paint and paint supplys: $60

our hardware came from homedepot... but we've had it for a few years and they no longer cary that exact style...
shower curtain: Fieldcrest (target) stripe in blue and gray $30
bath mat: walmart $10 (or $9.98... you know how those prices keep on rollin' on back...)
blue glass jars: thrifted $6
ceramic egg crate: gifted from bestie (west elm)
framed art: crafted

total: $106
amazing new place to poop: priceless

Ashley Paige said...

Ahhh, it looks SOOOO good! You can't beat that price! Like you, our master bath is ATROCIOUS. It's literally the ONLY room in our year old house that we didn't touch.. and I regret the decision every single day.. we have MAJOR reno plans for it in a year's time and I'm just trying to darndest to be patient.. but i'm thinking a new coat of paint and maybe some new hardware will be just the right fix until we can really pretty it up! great job!
