Anyway, the bathroom is 98% done. But since I'm all about the "so it's not perfect", I'm going to show it anyway. I didn't even clean it before I took pictures (even though I wanted to really, really bad!) because I'm trying to live by this new mantra.
I don't have a true "before", just imagine the ugliest bathroom you've ever seen. Now add green and yellow plaid wallpaper, a yellow counter and matching pea green sink. That's my before. The after is MUCH better. I'm pretty happy with how it came out though, even though technically it's not done. We still have the floor and ceiling trim to do, but it's fully functional and looks pretty darn good.
Originally we thought that this would be the "guest bathroom", but 1. we don't have many guests, and 2., we have two kids who really wanted their own bathroom. So now we call it the kids' bathroom. If it was a guest bathroom, I would've fancied it up with some flowers or something, but for the kids, it's just not practical at all. The kids really couldn't agree on anything, so I suggested painting the walls white and using black accents, and they loved that idea. So we went for it.
We addressed her complaint by hanging a larger mirror and making it low enough to work for her. This mirror was one of the first things I bought after moving here, and I love it. I had envisioned using it in the living room, but it really looks great in the bathroom, so I don't mind giving it up.
I really love how it looks like it belongs with the vanity and sink.
For once I picked the cheapest fixture! We got this fixture at Home Depot, I think it was $20 or something like that. I think it's so retro and cool.
It's a really, REALLY small bathroom, so I tried to keep it light, and of course I tried to keep the kids in mind when decorating it. The wall color is Valspar Ultra White, and the floor is the same vinyl planks that I used to cover the walls, which of course what led to this whole renovation!
Overall, I'm really happy with how it came out. It was A LOT of work, so much more than we thought it would be. But it was worth it, the kids are thrilled and I'm thrilled not to have four people sharing a bathroom anymore!
