Beginning Of The Half Bath Reno

What started as a simple painting project has turned into a pretty nice overhaul of the half bath.  We started with a cozy little room, unchanged since we moved in with the exception of the toilet.  After our initial painting job (from white to Behr Urban Putty), mom decided to go all out changing the light fixture, mirror, sink, faucet, accessory fixtures, flooring and trim.

The room went from 17 year old carpet...

...to beautiful boardwalk laid tiles.

We changed up the pedestal sink...

...to the vanity that set off our battle with spray paint.

And we switched out the builder's "hollywood" lights...

...to something a little less in your face thanks to Martha Stewart. 

We're still working on some finishing pieces (including touch up paint, handmade shelves from Chris and another mirror because the first one looked too small above the sink) but I was too excited to share the beginning of the renovation!  I'll be back with the finished before and after pictures soon!

Have you ever started on a project that grew into a larger one?


  1. Wow, it's looking so fantastic! I love that tile so much!

    1. Thanks!! The tile was being discontinued so we scored it at a great price.

  2. Looks awesome! I really love that flooring.
