main bathroom complete makeover

 Is there an Ugliest Bathroom of the Year award?

Because my bathroom would've won.
Purple sponge-painted walls (with test patches of gray), 1980's light bar,
outdated cabinets, original toilet and sink, ugly shower curtain...

 and worst yet: the original, cheap, dingy linoleum flooring with that fake
wood trim and door in brown.

 Enter our wonderful contractor since we're not do-it-yourselfers, and we have
a Much Nicer Bathroom. Let's start with the new porcelain tile floors.
Much better, yes?

 Gray walls, floating shelves, new shower curtain, new toilet, sink,
trim, and door.

Hello to a new light fixture and mirror...

and pretty new wall art and towel to brighten up the neutral space.

 Thanks for visiting my re-do ~ happy Wednesday to you!


  1. It looks fabulous! Love the wall color & floating shelves. The floor is amazing too. :)

  2. Beautiful! What a great really gutted that bathroom! I totally love that paint color with the bright pops of color in your towels and painting. The floor is awesome! I'm so happy for you!


    1. Thanks, Jane! Now we just need a new tub/shower! ;-)

  3. Amazing what new flooring and a coat of paint alone can do for a room...the new fixtures help too of course, but for a cheap fix just floors and paint can do wonders. Love your new bathroom!,!

  4. That is beautiful You made really attractive choices

  5. Oh Melanie,

    Such a wonderful change! Your paint and decorating are just beautiful and I love the floors!!
    Just know you are enjoying this remodel!!

  6. Love it! I bet it makes you smile every time you walk in there.

    1. Thanks, Tammy. I'm actually not in there often as it's the main hall bath. I use the master bathroom most of the time. :-)

  7. IT's beautiful!
    One of my 'dreams' is to have my current bathroom re-done.
    Love the floor and the paint and just how serene it looks.

    1. Thank you, Maggie. We've lived here for almost 23 years and are just now truly updating things! Money and time...I'm sure you know how that goes. ;-)

  8. What a wonderful transformation, Melanie! I love all the choices you made! I bet you love going in there now!

  9. Melaine, what an amazing makeover! Love, love your new bathroom! Just gorgeous! I am your new follower.

  10. Nice change!! You've wanted this update for so long!


  11. Your bathroom redo looks great! Sometimes I think those HGTV makeover shows could take lessons from the everyday people like us on how to do a makeover with very little money. They simply have no idea how to shop the discount and thrift stores!
