Before & After Photos - Bathroom

In my house, everything is always a work in progress. And the bathroom my boys share is definitely a work in progress. You can see what I started with here. It was a 1970's mess!! I'm currently renting, so that limited me as to what I could do to improve it. But I am happy with the results so far.

The next couple of photos show the beginnings of the improvement. I love the shabby black vintage cabinet. I had it for about three months before I decided to revamp the bathroom, the vintage round mirror , metal basket and white rooster were all thrifted finds.

The new "Classic Taupe" paint color by Behr. And a blank wall just asking to be "dressed"

And here are some of the finishing touches I have added. What do you think??

The Paris rose picture I picked up this past weekend. and the candle sconce (I forgot to put the candle on the sconce before I took the picture) awhile back at a yard sale, the new little bird on the tank of the toilet has the perfect blue on it :)

See the new blue pedestal plate? LOVE IT!! I have had my eye on it for THREE weeks at the local thrift store waiting for it to be marked down. I stopped by yesterday and it was finally 1/2 off!!!

Close up, isn't she a beauty??

My sweet little bird with the perfect shade of blue...

I really am very happy with the way this bathroom is starting to shape up, but I still have some more to do. In this last picture, there are two frames that I bought for this bathroom with the idea of having something hanging in the center of them. As you can see I have hung them up, but I can't decide what I want to go in the center of them. So I'm asking you wonderfully talented ladies to help me out. Please give me some suggestions...what would you do???

Until Later,


  1. It looks great. Sorry - I am of no help. I have come to a halt on my half bath.

  2. Hi
    I love the bathroom!
    The colors are great and the accents are wonderful~
    In the center of each frame why not hang either a small mirror or a smaller frame with 2 of your favorite quotes
    Just a thought

  3. OH! Very lovely! Well Done You!
    Hugs, Lisa

  4. Lovely! I am blank on the blank frames. I have 2 black 1960's frames that I love...have distressed and haven't figured what to do with them. I imagine it'll change with the seasons...

  5. This looks wonderful! We just put a new white vanity in our bathroom so I really love seeing your updates! Especially that cottage white/bluebird!
