Finally. After 2 Months. We Have Our House Back. The Nasty Mold is Gone. Major Tear Down Construction is Over. Everything is Clean and Sparkly. And We had a Great Opportunity to Change It Up. Just a Little.
All this for a Bathroom! Crazy.
After Numerous Trips to the Tile Super- Store, Floor & Decor, we agreed on a Design Board. Tile choices are epic and exhausting. But also exciting and fun. We went with Shades of Grey and White. Ceramic Tile from Floor to Ceiling and Wall to Wall. Fan shaped Tiles to be set as Water Droplets.
Contemporary. Clean. Rustic. Simple. Mermaid without being Too Disney.
You can look back at the Progress Here and Here and Here! The Mitigation and Tear Down looks Scary. But as with all Beautiful Mermaid Stories, there’s a Happy Ending. 🙂
And Now Open the Turquoise Door for The Reveal.
With the Details:
New to the space – 30″ Vanity from Costco. Antique Lights Stay.
Quartz Top with Moen Faucet (Costco). Turquoise Mirror stays.
Original New Mexico Latillas stay.
Ceiling Painted in Sherwin Williams HGTV Mint-To-Be. Inspired by the HGTV Dream Home 2020.
My silly Faucets as Towel Hooks stay. Mermaid tiles extend from the Shower Enclosure across the Bathroom wall. Floor to Ceiling. Wall to Wall.
Striped Towels (TJ Maxx) in Grey/White stand up to all the Curves. Tiles set as water droplets with curves down to give a Mermaid Illusion.
Penny Tiles for the Shower Pan wrap the Shower Step. Penny Tiles feel great on bare feet and are very slip-proof.
3 Nichos in Penny Tiles. No more hanging rack over the Shower head.
Rainfall Shower – Sleek, Sassy and Powerful.
For Contrast: Grey Tile with White Grout. White Tile with Grey Grout.
My Favorite Part – The Before and After…
Shower Enclosure BEFORE.
Shower Enclosure AFTER.
Bathroom Floor with Black Mold BEFORE.
Bathroom Floor AFTER.
As Always, My Inspirations. 🙂
Magic is Everywhere. Just Keep Swimming! Just Keep Swimming!
Thanks for coming along on the Journey!
Love it! Love that you left the latillas, the fixtures and the towel knobs! One more time, you have outdone yourselves! I’m thinking it’s time to hang a shingle outside your house … maybe “Design Specialist & Construction”? Well, maybe not the construction! Can’t wait to see what you’ll do next!
Definitely NOT the construction…what a battle…so glad that’s over. Thanks! Because of cost, we left most of the fixtures but I’m glad we did. The old sink was becoming a chore so it was nice to replace it and move from the 1940’s into the 21st Century!
You rock woman! I’d have left the fixtures even if they were free because I love seeing the originals … they provide such charm and character! Good job all!
Love it , looks great! The turquoise door and mirror frame add just the right pop of color. Is that the SW “Mint to be “ paint? I am looking for a green shade to paint a side table. First one not the right color, so I will check SW.
Thanks! Can’t wait for you to see/use it! The door and mirror are a turquoise wood stain that I didn’t do so I don’t know the color. But it was a wood stain not a paint – the wood grain shows through and has held up beautifully. The bathroom ceiling and the bedroom are the Mint-To-Be SW paint – the color does lean more towards green than blue but not quite turquoise – it might be just what you’re looking for. 🙂
The photos are excellent, buddy. Glad you got the new iphone
Jeanne, what a heart happy moment!! Lovely upgrades with unique remnants of the past perfectly incorporated. You did a marvelous job!! Thanks for sharing
