Bathroom Remodel Part 6: It is finished. Mostly!

I can hardly believe I'm saying this, but the bathroom is finished - for the most part :) The doors need to be painted, and some other trim as well, but mirrors are hung, grout is sealed, and Matt took the first shower today! I have to say, my bathroom, which I was never really crazy about, now makes me very, very happy. I have a thing for houses, and changing them and making them my own - this is probably the biggest thing we've done to date, and I'm thrilled with how it turned out! If you want to see the original bathroom, click here. All posts mentioning the bathroom can be found here. Otherwise, take a look!:

We ripped out the white builder's grade cabinets and laminate vanity and replaced it with cherry cabinets in an espresso finish, with venatino marble for the counter top and backsplash.
Light fixtures are Pottery Barn's Mercer collection in polished chrome. I think I got the last two on ebay. After spending an eternity looking for mirrors, I ended up ordering silver leaf frames from in a custom size, and then had beveled mirrors cut to fit. This was the last piece of the puzzle, and I'm thrilled with them :)
Clear glass shower door opens into the tiled stall; all plumbing fixtures are from Kohler's Bancroft line, as well as the robe hook and towel bars.
The pocket door leading to the water closet will have frosted glass film on it, as soon as I can get to that :)
And here's some more pictures! I think I may just move in here for a few days and not come out :)

Window in the water closet is now cased, and I have a sill deep enough to put some pretties on...
Yes, there is a mirror across from the shower. Fun!
Another view from inside the shower.
So we survived our bathroom remodel, even if there are bits and pieces still to be finished up. I think we're taking a break from big projects for a bit, lots of things have gone by the wayside while we've been swamped with this - and soccer, and kids, and life - you know how that goes. That is not to say, however, that I'm not already planning what that next project will be :)


  1. Gorgeous. I am, as always, very very jealous.

  2. That is FABULOUS!!!! I love it! The mirror in front of the shower...SCARY. LOL Guess it'd keep my fat ass on a diet! LOL
    I'd go in there and LOCK the door so nobody would be frightened by walking in on me. UGH! lol

  3. Gorgeous completely & totally gorgeous! I love all the fixtures & that marble is beautiful! Hmmm the mirror infront of the shower not be a pretty site in it if I was in the shower, but I'm thinking... bow chicka wow wow might be a little fun ;)

    Congratulations on making it through!

  4. It's beautiful! I love the floor tiles and the marble! Love.

  5. You guys did an amazing job! It should be featured in a magazine or something!

  6. And I love that little clock on the counter!

  7. I swoon! It's gorgeous! The blue bottles look beautiful on the sill.


    I love those countertops. The backsplash, the fixtures, the pocket door... all of it.

    I hope you enjoy every minute of it.

  9. Beautiful!! I love those cabinets and counters. I have to second Mimi, though, a mirror across from the shower would terrify me. Especially right now ;)

  10. GORGEOUS! I love the blue bottles!

  11. Wow Jen, that looks completely amazing, I adore the dark wood cabinets, and those counters! You must love getting ready for the day in this space!!


  12. I am so glad I came across your blog! This is almost exactly what I have been picturing for my bathroom remodel, but mine will be on a smaller scale. (How I envy your big bathroom! Mine is like 5 by 7, seriously.) But the subway tile with pencil line, marble countertop, espresso-stained cabinet, marble floor (I'm deciding between hexagon and basket weave), chrome fixtures, even the wall color -- it's so nice to see what it all looks like together... stunning! Love love love... and super-excited to do away with our shabby-and-not-chic 70-year-old peach-tiled bathroom!!!
