One Weekend Bathroom Makeover

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to update your home. Big or small projects can make quite an impression on the overall appearance and usually value of your home. I recently helped my mom update her guest bathroom in one weekend. And guess what? It only involved a couple cans of paint, new lighting and some decor! Check out the full details below.

Bathroom Before:

This was the most out of date room in their home. Most of the home had been updated prior to them purchasing it, and what was updated, was of the best quality. The previous homeowners’ son was a custom cabinet maker so their kitchen is top of the line custom cabinets and island. There is nothing necessarily wrong with the bathroom. Everything is still in functioning order but as you can see from the picture below, the room is a drab blend of various shades of brown, beige and yellow.

The last colors you want to put in a bathroom are the colors that already go in a bathroom (if you know what I mean)…

The Plan:

The tile was in great condition and even though it is not a color we would have chosen, the goal was to update this room for the least amount of money possible. So the tile stayed. In order to compliment the existing tile, I suggested painting the vanity a bold deep blue and updating the walls with an off white. This way the trim wouldn’t need to be repainted (something she was adamant she didn’t want to do).

We chose to paint the walls in Behr Night Blooming Jasmine, a gorgeous off white shade that had a slight yellow undertone when paired with the existing tile. It actually made the tile appear less brown and more pink/beige. For the vanity we opted for Behr Midnight in the Tropics. This deep blue is absolutely stunning in person and perfectly complimented the newly painted walls and existing tile.

Bathroom After:

In one weekend we managed to paint the walls, ceiling and vanity! Check out the after pics and let me know what you think.
