getting there // master bath

BEFORE


calling the interior of these four walls a master bath is a bit of a stretch, but it is the only bath in the house with a shower, and it is upstairs ... so i guess that means it counts.

we didn't do much, it's such a tiny space you can't really, but we did paint, yay white! and added a few shelves (ikea ribba shelves UPSIDE DOWN, best idea ever), a snazzy shower curtain (west elm, though not on their site) and a not lame towel rack (so important).  also we replaced our hot water heater.  this was by far the biggest upgrade of the entire house - quality of life wise.  we had a total of three minutes of hot water when we first moved in.  then sometime in february we decided it was too cold to not have a hot shower.  new water heater = best investment EVER.  we can now sit in the shower forever.  i frequently come out pink skinned.  it is wonderful.


AFTER




maybe one day kind of soon we'll replace the sink and the pathetic piece of carpentry it's sitting on.  maybe one day not so soon we'll add an actual master bath.  until then i'm basking in the white walled brightness and it's all pretty ok.

ps - sea salt soap, it's the best ever.  both mas and i are deeply, madly in love.  i'd highly recommend it.

  2. So I assume that your master bath is not connected to your bedroom in anyway? Would it connect if you took out a portion of the wall?

    Primping rooms up is fun!

  3. @amanda - saddest ever.

    @worthington - yeah there's an entire extra room between our bedroom and the bath. the renovation would be no small project... old houses.

  4. Are those tiles cream or white? Our bathroom is in a similar state (cream tiles, lighter cream walls) and I was planning on painting the walls grey to get rid of the unmatched white/cream ughness. But..if they're cream and that's what they'll look like if I paint WHITE, then I'm down for that!

    1. i wouldn't really call the tiles cream or white. i think they were at one point a bit off white, but like everything else in our house, it's original color has been tainted by cigarettes causing it to go a bit dirty. but for sure they aren't white. our white walls are really white, and the difference is kind of nice.

    1. yeah, the tile is fine. it's just the whole bathroom is kind of old and gross and leaky all over the place.

      also the sink cabinet is particle board, 30 year old particle board, do you know what particle board does after being exposed to water for 30 years? it disintegrates every stupid time you touch it.
