Master Bathroom Redo

Hello!  It's been a while (even though I vowed to blog more often ;) hehe). Today I wanted to share some photos (iPhone quality, don't judge!) of our master bathroom renovation we completed this summer.  If you remember the before pictures of our bathroom, you probably recall the awful red painted wallpaper (a Bella and Birch infomercial product- yuck!)  We ended up having to have a friend plaster over it because we could not remove that darn stuff!!!  We finally got around to re-tiling our bathtub this past May and we've been enjoying our new subway tiled shower alllllll summer.  We love it and I hope you do, too!  

Here's a look at our bathroom when we first bought the house:

It definitely needed some TLC, am I right?!?

I really wanted to brighten up this space and make it simple, clean and timeless.  If you check out my Pinterest board you'll see all of my inspiration photos for the project!

We had never tiled anything before so to prepare ourselves for the task, I scoured the web for tutorials.  I really loved the tutorial I found at Queen B and Me.  She was very clear and straight-forward with her directions and it gave me all the confidence I needed to tackle such a scary project!  Definitely check it out if you are planning a similar project.

Here is what it looked like after we finished the tiling job:

Since then we have added a shelf to hold cotton swabs, cotton rounds, make-up brushes, etc, and a picture frame holding a pretty Manet print.  

Wall Color - Silver Drop by Behr
Subway Tile - 3x6 from Home Depot
Grout Color - Dove Gray from Tile Shop
Shower Curtain - Crate and Barrel
Picture Frame - IKEA (added brass brackets from Home Depot)
Shelf - Lowes
Curtain Rod, Curtain Hooks, Toilet Paper Holder, and Towel Bars - all found at Home Goods/TJMaxx
Rugs - Target (old)

Thanks for reading.  Hope you love it as much as we do!  Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. 

I couldn't resist adding one last picture of my cutie-pie hubby during our tiling adventure :-)

Haha!  Have a good night!
