Our Bathroom: Before And After

When we moved into this house in June 2010, I remember saying—in the self-assured way that new homeowners have of saying things like this—"it's all going to be done by Christmas."

Oh, self. Oh, sweet, idiotic self. I'd roll my eyes skyward right now if they weren't already stuck from rolling them every time I've remembered saying it. 

But slowly, as life went by, we made progress. We renovated the kitchen and turned the spare bedroom into a home office and got the living room the way we wanted it. And all that time, the bathroom loomed before us, a huge beige-colored project that we could never find the time or the inclination to tackle. Renovations are never fun, exactly, but when they require the removal and temporary relocation of one's toilet, they're decidedly harder to get psyched about. 

So this is what the bathroom looked like for a little under two years while we figured out what to do with it:


The toilet was new and the pedestal sink wasn't bad, but the speckled tile came directly from the depths of my nightmares, and no matter how much or how often I scrubbed that horrible mildewed-looking grout, it never seemed to get particularly clean. The toilet paper holder was in an incomprehensively bizarre place several feet from the toilet, there was no storage whatsoever, and the light fixture over the medicine cabinet was straight out of the 80s. And while the cast-iron tub was solid and deep, someone had done a terrible job of reglazing it at some point to match the beige of the tiles, which meant it was flaking and peeling pretty badly. The bathroom was functional, don't get me wrong, but it certainly wasn't my happy place.

So we lived with it for two years, and then we made it the happiest place in the world. 



Well, for me, anyway. I'm not going to fight Disneyland on it or anything. 

What did we do? Well, first, we took out the toilet and the sink—the former we kept; the latter we donated—and demoed all the tile on the floor and walls. Then we cheated a little bit and hired a lovely man named Pat to come in and lay all the new tile: a carrara marble subway tile from Home Depot on the walls and, for the floor, a honeycomb carrara tile that I ordered, extremely nervously, from a random tile warehouse online—it's not the kind of thing you can just send back, you know?and which I ended up, thank goodness, being very pleasantly surprised by.

Hiring someone else to do the tiling wasn't in the original plan—we did the kitchen all ourselves and had been thinking we'd go similarly DIY for the bathroom—but Pat was so wonderful and so reasonable and did such an impeccable job that it ended up being the best decision we ever could have made. (Locals, let me know if you want his details.) 

 
Also, it only took a week instead of a thousand weeks, which is what it would have taken if we'd done it ourselves. And I don't want to overstate it or anything, but this fancy little nook Pat made for my shampoo makes me feel like I have arrived. 

Once all the tile was in, we ordered new fixtures for the shower and bath, which make me happy every time I look at them. In fact, I look at them so much when I'm supposed to be showering that I've almost been late to work a couple of times because of it. 



Then we painted the walls a dark moody gray (Benjamin Moore's Nightfall) because I love dark colors in small spaces. I was just a teeny bit hesitant at first because the room is so tiny—can you tell how tiny it is by the fact that I can't even seem to get the whole thing in one shot?—but the ceilings are high and there's a big skylight at the top that lets in lots of light, so that really helps it feel bright enough.

Oh, also we decided to get a new toilet paper holder and move it to a more practical place. 

Whew! I knew that was on your mind. 

While we did think about replacing the bath, I couldn't bring myself to get rid of an original 1942 cast iron tub and replace it with something flimsy made of fiberglass, so we had it refinished instead by a local company named Mr Bathtub—when I phoned them up, I had to say "hello, is that Mr Bathtub?" and the guy on the other end had to say "yes, it is," which I'm sure was equally as amusing for him as it was for me—and they did an amazing job. I'd been skeptical that our peeling beige monstrosity could ever look like anything other than a peeling beige monstrosity, but whatever they did was magic, pure and simple. It looks like a brand new tub.


(Except it was half the price of a brand new tub.)

One of my favorite parts of the bathroom is the vanity Sean made—inspired by this one on Young House Love—using a bedside table from Pottery Barn Teen, a white vessel sink from Overstock, and an equal amount of patience and obsessive measuring. 

We knew we wanted a vanity with a little storage, since there isn't really any in the rest of the room. But we also had a teeny-tiny space to work with—the gap between the wall and the toilet is only 23 inches, and the smallest standard vanities are usually 24—and we just didn't like anything we were seeing in stores or online. Finally, Sean said "you know what? I'm going to make us one." And I said "you know what? I would like to marry you again."  


Then I had to marry him again, then divorce him, then marry him again when he built me a light as well. 

To be fair, though, I'm the one who came up with the idea for the light. I was lusting after a similar one online that cost a painful $250, and wondering if there wasn't a way to get that industrial look a little cheaper. Turns out there is: you just buy two $25 lamps from the outdoor lighting department at Lowe's and wire them to a piece of wood. Boom, $50 light. I just saved you two hundred bucks. Go add it to your 401K or something.  


Once we had all the essentials taken care of—including installing the recessed medicine cabinet, which looks very pretty now but is a process we shall never speak of again—we hung a few things on the walls. I know lots of people live by a credo like "every room should have a little bit of red in it," but I happen to live by the credo "every room should have a little bit of Evan Dando in it." This is why I have a framed poster showing the lineup of the 1993 Reading music festival—which, if you squint at, you will see the Lemonheads headlined in more prosperous times—hanging over my toilet. There you go, gentlemen: a little light reading while you pee! See how many bands you can spot whose songs you still remember!

  
On the opposite wall, we blew up a photo Sean took of two zebras we saw on safari in South Africa and had it stretched across canvas. It's a huge piece—almost fills the entire wall—but I waited until I had a Groupon to do it, which ended up saving a bunch of money. In fact, we saved a bunch of money all over the place during the renovation, mostly because we ended up doing a large portion of it ourselves. (Is it gauche to talk about budget? I don't know if it's gauche to talk about budget, but ours was fairly modest.)

So that's it! There are a few more photos here, as if the seven million in this post weren't enough, but I'm pretty sure you've got the general idea. Let me know if you have any questions, or if I haven't explained anything properly, or if you'd like a tutorial for making your own industrial-looking light fixture for $50. And also, thank you for reading this far; if you're ever in the neighborhood, you should feel free to stop by for a shower. Wow, that sounded way less creepy in my head.

Holly, your bathroom looks fantastic and has made me just a little depressed about the state of mine. I know very well about the trials of renovating with a husband which is probably why things are on hold atm! But you've inspired me to change a few things and just get on with it. Also I'd love to see a tutorial on your industrial lights.

Holy crap, you really never cease to amaze with your designing chops, do you? I have no words to describe how madly in love I am with your new bathroom except: can I move in? Or just come over for a shower...?

On a less creepy note - is the zebra canvas print just a regular old canvas? Not special waterproof-ness? Will that hold up well to bathroom humidity? Cuz if you so, you just solved my bathroom art dilemma that has been haunting me for three years!

Wow, I am so inspired and heartened!! Our bathroom is a disaster. I mean, old yellow tiles, a beige tub (painted with paint, not enamel), and a bidet so close to the toilet you have to sit sideways. On the up side, the toilet paper roll IS in a good space. I am showing this post to my husband and we will have to change our weekend plans to go tile shopping...

When we moved my husband was sure we would remodel the basement, kitchen, and three bathrooms in the first 6 months. Hahahahahahaha. Wow. I tried to set him straight, but that just landed me the title of the dream bubble burster. 4 years later and we finished the basement and kitchen... and when I say finish I mean there are still a few details to complete. We've had one bathroom half torn apart and the other two untouched.

Love how you transformed this room. It gives me inspiration and hope that my pink 1940's bathroom can be so much better. Totally pinning this.

Thanks for sharing!

Ah yes. Recessed medicine cabinets. Let me just say, if you think it was bad your way, you should try doing it single-handed. Which is what I did in my last house.

Next time I redo a bathroom, I am hiring a professional for that part. And it will be worth every single penny.

I love it! That tile is stunning, and the dark walls are chic and cozy at the same time. Perfect!

One question -- are your soap dispensers from Target? If so, have you had any issues with the spout corroding? I have two of them and keep having to dig out clogs with little pins. I would just buy new ones, but I really love how pretty they are and can't find any I like as much. (Unsurprisingly, my husband does not understand this reasoning.)

I love it so much! And it's really amazing to see what can be done with a small space. I have three bathrooms in my house, which sounds fun. But they're all tiny. And ugly. And now I have hope that one day maybe I can make them even a quarter as pretty as yours.

Ok so we just bought a house that we are updating a bit (not neeearly as much as you guys, but it still feels like a ton to me!). We ordered carrera marble countertops for the kitchen and were quite surprised when they arrived with very little gray veining and lots of BROWN veining. And looking at your gorgeous tile makes me that much more annoyed at our slabs.

I find solace in the fact that we will only be in the house for a few years. I will show the contractor for the next house a picture of your bathroom and be like FIND ME THAT MARBLE.

I'd call you the Coupon Queen but Honey Boo Boo's mom got there first. I write that with complete and total admiration for your shopping skills because I have none. All I have is the lazy tendency to pay full price for items or services without waiting for them to go on sale or do it myself. Merchants love me. But, you've inspired me to follow your ways and I will no longer be so easily separated from my hard-earned $$!

Love it. I have the same soap dispensers in my kids' bathroom, which, while beautiful, are prone to failure. Also, my youngest daughter dropped hers in her sink, breaking both the sink and the dispenser. I have replaced the danged things twice, though, because I can't stand to put cheap plastic (read: unbreakable, klutzy-6ft.-tall-14 yr old girl- proof), because they're so pretty.

Also? It's gauche to accuse someone of being gauche. Talking about your budget just makes you sound clever and creative.

Oh I LOVE it. We are gearing up for a bathroom reno and I may just steal all your ideas. It's lovely.

I have a question about your tub - do you actually take baths in it? (Is that the stupidest question ever?) The reason I ask is I'm considering ripping our metal tub out too - because I LOVE BATHS and the old style with the straight up and down sides is KILLING ME. It's so uncomfortable compared to our last (new, modern but ugly) tub with it's angled back for optimum long bath lounging comfort.

I would really love to keep it but I haven't been able to find a bath pillow or anything else that really works. Have you?

Nothing But Bonfires
Oct 03, 2012

Thank you SO MUCH for all the kind words, everyone! Now to answer a few questions:

Nicole: The zebra print canvas is just a regular old canvas. We debated whether it would hold up to potential bathroom humidity and decided it probably would. So far it's been fine. Framing something was going to be SO expensive that printing on canvas was a risk I was willing to take.

Ines: The toilet paper holder is the unfortunately named Umbra Stream (I mean, SERIOUSLY?) made by Kerr & Co. I got it on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Umbra-Stream-Die-Cast-Toilet-Nickel/dp/B0028RXGVI/...

Erica W: Nope, we didn't paint the lights! That's the original finish — it's kind of a galvanized metal.

Deva by Definition: The glass pump bottle in the shower is full of shower gel — Neutrogena Rainbath, to be exact! I had one of the massive bottles from Costco because I love the smell so much, but it was way too big to fit in nook, so I decanted it into a glass handsoap bottle instead. So far it's been a pretty good solution!

Kate: Yes, both glass soap bottles are from Target! And you know, it's funny, I HAVE had some issues with the white one (full of handsoap, on the shelf) corroding a little bit on the metal parts of the spout, now that you mention it, but it hasn't been a big deal — I think I had to clean it out once with a safety pin and there are a few little rust spots I've tried to polish out, but it's so pretty and has held up so well otherwise that I don't want to replace it! The clear one hasn't done that yet (fingers crossed.)

Dani: I haven't found that printing on canvas makes the image look pixellated or cheap — I've printed a few with a couple of different companies and they've all come out really well. I guess it depends on the size of the image you have in the first place, though — I've always used the biggest, most hi-res version possible and the quality has been great.

Jen: Bathmat is from IKEA. It was a few years ago, though — not sure if they still have them!

Alicia: We ordered the tile from Oracle Tile & Stone (through Amazon). It's called Carrara White 2" Hexagon Mosaic Tile. You can get it from a bunch of different places online though -- the other place we looked was called The Builder Depot.

Shelley: I think this particular time we used Picture It On Canvas, but we've also used (and been pleased with) Canvas on Demand.

Lara: Hmm, I've never found the bath uncomfortable! I guess I always just thought a bath was a bath was a bath and didn't even consider how the shape might change how comfortable it was. Sorry not to be of more help!

It's pink tile walls and blue bathtub always makes me wonder if someone was so excited they were having fraternal twins (a boy and girl obviously) they had to celebrate by remodeling the bathroom with pink! and blue! your bathroom makes me want to cry every time I go in there now.

BEAUTIFUL. Three months into the home renovation process--of a 112-year-old home, eek!--I have even more respect for you, ha. We have two bathrooms--the master which has an original clawfoot tub and while it is totally pointless and neither Scott nor I can really even stand and shower in it, I can't bear to part with it. So I think we're going to use the downstairs bathroom for now (which has a stall shower) and completely demo the upstairs bath next summer when we have more time and daylight. For now, it's all about the bedrooms and the office and the living room.

Oh! And we started retiling two of our (six!) fireplaces tonight, and I'm thinking your tile guy was an excellent investment. We're on a tight deadline with the hardwood floor installer coming week after next, otherwise we'd probably hire someone, too.

The really, really sad thing is that your "before" bathroom is about ten thousand times better than my "now" bathroom. I cannot effectively express how deeply I hate my bathroom, nor how happy I would be if I could completely demolish it and have it renovated.

Congrats on yours - it's lovely! I have to admit, seeing someone's bathroom feels a bit naughty and voyeuristic, considering all the nekkid that happens there. 8-)

Yes -- I was scanning the photos looking for the TP holder. I saw the basket on top of the tank and thought, surely Holly wouldn't expect everyone who uses her bathroom to twist around awkwardly and fish a roll out of that basket? Relieved to see the free standing holder. Chagrined at the dark gray but to each her own. The teeny sink is brilliant.

Too Gorgeous! Loved reading about the rehab journey too and Congratulations that you two are still speaking, even if never again about the medicine cab. Wise of you both! I love dark in small spaces too, so rich and lovely. I also love that so many spots are so meaningful to you both. The print, the vanity he lovingly made to fit that tiny spot, the DIY, and very creative, light fixture you dreamed up and he made reality. This bathroom is a labor of love and reflects both of you so perfectly. Well, and even more well, DONE! Now enjoy.

WOW! You both did some great work here. It's very impressive. I wish I had that kind of vision when I started my remodeling bathroom project. Which is how I get here of course. I think you have done a wonderful job, I started on my own but will end with the pro doing the rest. As I am getting older I want a bathroom that can accommodate me as I get elderly and need the bathroom bars etc. Thank you for your inspirational post though.

Inspiring and wonderful DIY job there! I like the towel hook on your door that says “his” and “hers”. The ingenious thing about it is how you have painted the hooks to match the color of your walls. I also think it’s a wonderful color choice you made regarding the wall color. I’m glad you ignored the so called rules about how dark colors make rooms look smaller and just went with it. It absolutely works! I’m also glad you retained that beautiful white door of yours. The theme of the room seems to be a film noir like black and white and so the white door actually stood out a lot more in the bathroom’s new state. By the way, I think you made the right call hiring Pat to tile. Tiling requires some skill and experience and if done poorly, can lead to popping tiles which is a major headache.

Great job! I love the tile choice. Is it polished or matte?
