The tour of my little home sweet home continues, yay!  First I posted my art room, then a bathroom, then our nursery and now our laundry room/bathroom.



Our house is split level and this is the only bathroom on the lower level, so it's often used by company when we're entertaining.  No matter how many times we tried to detour people upstairs and away from the "laundry room," they would always insist on using it, so it definitely needed some sweet TLC.

Here are some before & afters.  Brace yourself for the befores...eep! Lips sealed  They are of the room when we first bought the house in 2002.  

The holes in the wall were covered with a not-so-fabulous mirror.  It's always a nice surprise to find gremlin holes in your wall when you take down a mirror. Cheesy















The curtain in the mirror reflection is covering a shower stall and I was actually sitting on the dryer to take a few of the photos, so no pictures of them. Cheesy

Special thanks to http://www.etsy.com/shop/MADART for the awesome print! Kiss

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Aww, thanks so much!!

The original paint color was called "Billiards" or "Billiard Green," I think.  We had it color matched to a slightly cheaper brand, though.

The sink is my favorite!  I love how it picks up the colors from the room.

Great job - it looks beautiful!  I love your choice for cabinet and sink.  Gorgeous!

I found gremlin holes in our soffit in our kitchen when I took down the wallpaper.  Seriously, some people don't know how to finish up their work!

Soooooo lovely!  What a great rehab!  This space doesn't look utilitarian at all.  I love the wall color: it goes very nicely with both your new floor tiles and vanity. After working on this gremlin hole this week I'm thinking of changing my name to Cesar, because I'm becoming a Wall Whisperer.  I rehabilitate walls when it's too late to train the people who've wrecked them.

That is a wonderful bathroom makeover. I have to ask, about how much did you spend total? I'm just wondering because I just bought a house, and there is a bathroom that will need major rehab. Probably even more then yours did, but at least this will give me a starting point for estimating.

Awesome color, especially with that print.  And that tile is SUCH an improvement.  We're getting ready to do some re-decorating (including our powder room), and you've really inspired me.

This looks just beautiful! I adore your wall color. It's amazing how much that one thing transforms the room. (I know there's more to it then paint but I think the wall color is a huge part of what makes this room awesome!)

And, hmm, that is a very good question...

Here's estimate/guesstimate for ya!
That would bring it to approximately $405 for the "core" pieces (minus flooring).

Accessories -- toilet paper holder, shelves, print $37, frame (50% off at Michael's), hand towels, reed air freshener, soap dispenser set, candles, waist basket, show curtain... probably $150.  I get most of the accessories from Burlington Coat Factory -- sales!

So, $555 plus flooring.

I hope that helps!

That rocks me off my chair! Great job guys! I just love the dark color of the wall and the way you decorate the walls.
You gave me a great idea what I could do with my guest bathroom that needs a make over really bad.

Thanks, guys!

The art on the wall is a print from an artist on Etsy.  I think I have the link included at the bottom of my first post.  She creates such beautiful pieces!!  If it's not there, holler and I'll retrieve it from my Etsy history.
