Ciao from (probably) the other side of the world! We are in Italy right now and I’ve been trying to get this post up for about 5 days, but WiFi has been so intermittent and shoddy that I’ve had a little trouble. But alas, here it is! PS – it is BEAUTIFUL here!!!
Alright, guys. As you might know, we’ve been on a roll with our bathroom renovations this year! They all needed a serious facelift and we’ve finally finished our THIRD and FINAL bathroom! We started over New Year’s weekend with our master bathroom, in February we finished our guest bathroom, and just this month we finished our upstairs bathroom makeover which is what I’m revealing today!

Our upstairs bathroom was NAST. Seriously, gross. I think at one point, the past owners had some leaking or water damage, so they decided to caulk the bathroom themselves. They caulked horribly. Look:
Like the rest of our house, the bathroom was entirely tan. It also had some nasty white linoleum on the floor. As I ripped it up, we also found out that there was water damage on the subfloor. We thought we’d finish this renovation in a couple weeks, but it ended up taking about 2 months and an extra $200 to fix the floor!
So, without further adieu… come on in!!
Bathroom Makeover: Before & Afters
As you might have noticed, we used the same paint as our guest bathroom, Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams, color matched with Behr Marquee (love me some Behr).
After, guys!! After!!!
As you can tell, we have a LOT going on here!! Here was our to-do list…
Bathroom Makeover Checklist
- Rip up the old floor, put down new subfloor, and lay down VINYL! Yes, vinyl. It was so easy to put down, I’d do it a thousand times over.
- Take out and re-install toilet, a task in itself.
- Paint the walls in Sea Salt by SW.
- Paint, install, and caulk new trim.
- Paint the vanity (Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams, color matched with Behr Marquee) and install new hardware.
- Install a new bathroom sink with new faucet.
- Put up and grout a new backsplash.
- Make mirror frame and glue onto the existing mirror, as per my DIY Mirror Frame post!
- Replace light fixture above the mirror.
That Big Shelf Thing
You may have noticed that big shelf thing above the toilet. I got it from Hobby Lobby and I’m really excited how it 1) fills the space, 2) is decorative, yet 3) functional! Once we have some little babes we’ll be able to use the baskets for bath toys and other stuff. I found a similar, equally cute one on Amazon here.
After putting up the dark metal shelf, I thought it would work great if we had complimentary hardware on our sink. We found this Kohler sink on OfferUp for about 80% of the original price, though you can order almost the same one on Amazon here.
Aaannnddd a couple close-ups of the other other decor!
There it is, guys! I hope you enjoyed all the pics and the makeover! If you have any questions, feel free to drop them in the comments.
I’ll be slightly off-the-grid for the next week and a half, though you can catch up with me via Instagram! We have a BIG project planned for when we get back and I’m stoked to share it with you! One word: Shiplap. 😀
