After our master bathroom reno was completed, I realized the other upstairs bath needed some serious attention ASAP but I didn't have the time, money, or energy for another bathroom renovation. The tile was in pretty good shape and the color wasn't awful, so I decided to just go with it. A new shower curtain, lighting, fixtures, paint, and accessories are all it took to spruce this place up.
These pics were shot shortly after move in day in 2007.
The vanity was still sporting the mirror and light fixture from 1969.
The original tile was in good condition and the color wasn't so bad.
The walls were dingy white with an angel/cherub border at the top (what were these people thinking??!!). The black cord in the tub is the wallpaper steamer. I shot these pics while I was in the process of removing the border.
Hello color scheme.
This shower curtain from WorldMarket incorporates the green from
the tile along with blue, gray, white, and khaki.
Polished chrome fixtures pick up the gray in the pattern of the shower curtain.
A glass shelf provides extra counter space without adding visual clutter and glass jars make a stylish display for bathroom necessities.
A pretty bowl to hold my jewelry.
I shot this photo in 2005 on our first anniversary trip and finally found a place to hang it!
Decorative hooks make a pretty display for towels.
The walls were painted Benjamin Moore's Smoke.
A soft jute rug adds warmth and texture.
I think this little bathroom makeover proves that you can create a great space even if you don't have the ability to completely renovate. Just go with what you got!
