Bathroom Remodel Before and Afters: ORC Reveal

I can 100% promise that you are not as happy to be reading this post as I am to be writing it!!! It's been a LONG haul but we are finished, people. F.I.N.I.S.H.E.D. Well, except for that one tiny detail called a shower glass panel, but I figured that shouldn't keep me from showing you how things turned out. 

The glass panel is scheduled for installation on Monday so make sure you come back and see it!

One more important thing to note...I'm NOT superwoman and these two remodels DID NOT happen in just 6 weeks like the ORC typically operates. In full disclosure, we've spent a full 12 weeks from start to finish.

Okay, now take a look...
Custom vanity paired with Vicostone quartz countertops in Titanium. Sconces from AllModern.



Can you believe I originally considered keeping the previous cabinets? That would have been tragic. You'll have to scroll way down to refresh your memory of what they looked like. I was trying to save money, but honestly, keeping them would have ruined the whole design. So glad I came to my senses! 

I love the glow the sconces put off.  I ended up using the Hovet mirror from Ikea.


Mixing vintage with modern.

My salvage yard tub makes its debut!

The unique shape sold me instantly. 



Here you're looking at the back portion of the shower which will also be the way we'll walk into the shower since the glass panel is freestanding without a door. I'm planning on using the hand hooks and bench area as a dressing space. We'll hang our bath towels on hooks that we'll place on the tile wall.

If you've read this blog long, you know I love a little bit 'o quirk in a space. These hands make me smile.

Hold on, Mr. Showerhead, one day you will get used! It's such a tease having an "almost" completed bathroom with the most important item missing.

The devil's in the details, right? I thought painting the edge of the door was a great idea until I had to start taping! John was super thrilled to see our gold handles spray painted black. He's been asking me to paint them since we moved in (almost 2 years ago).

I found this little plant stand at an estate sale in our neighborhood awhile back. I wasn't sure where I was going to put it but now it's found the perfect spot.

Here's a wide shot so you can get a full understanding of the space. Can you believe we started out with flower wallpaper and a HUGE jetted tub? We've come a long way.

BEFORE:




Remodel #2
Now, we'll move on into the guest bathroom. Our main goal here was to 1) get RID of the mirrors (see below) and 2) add a shower so guests didn't have to share with us or the kiddos.

I got a little creative and funky with this space. It's typically my goal to come up with original designs that keep things fun and unexpected.

And, I'd say our utility cart turned vanity does just that...provides the unexpected. I'm fully expecting our guests to scratch their heads a little and wonder what I was thinking?! Honestly, this was an element that wasn't part of the original design plans. It just popped into my head one day and I couldn't shake it so that's when I started scouring craigslist. It was meant to be when I ran across this one and it was the perfect size.

Love how the stained stripe breaks up our white wall and helps tie everything together throughout the space.

It's super hard to see in these pictures, but there's a frameless shower panel between the toilet and the shower. See the little chrome piece on the curb, holding it up?

This big, round mirror helps offset all the hard lines in the space. It also compliments the round vessel sink nicely.

Not the best picture, but it helps you see the shower panel.

99 cent art from Goodwill, purchased years ago but still going strong.

And for your viewing pleasure, this is what it looked like a mere 12 weeks ago (although my hairstyle has changed at least 3 times since I actually took this picture).

May these pictures never resurface again and please, please don't EVER add mirrors to every wall in your bathroom. Take it from me...it's not a good idea.

I hope you've had fun following along with the progression of our remodels. I've had so much fun reading your comments and feelin' the love. It makes all those days of wondering if I'll ever get the paint off my hands and the dust off my floors, beds, tables, walls, etc, totally worth it!

Thank you, Linda, for challenging us all through the One Room Challenge. You've managed to create quite the buzz in blogland! Don't forget to click through to see numerous other makeovers.

Lastly, check back in next week to see the real deal final reveal of our master bathroom!

Both rooms turned out beautiful! I've been thinking about keeping our cabinets when we remodel our master bath next year, but I'm sold on replacing them now that I see what an impact you doing it in your space made. Enjoy the new spaces!

Tricia @ Suburban Bitches said...

Both bathrooms are gorgeous - although I can't believe you didn't want to keep all those mirrors! YIKES! Love the utility cart sink - that is pure genius & that Stockholm mirror is the best! I used it a few months ago for a bath remodel myself. Congrats!!

Lianna@theresnoplacelikehomemke.com said...

Dana! I looks fantastic. I bet you can't wait for you glass to get here. It makes me feel better that you took 12 weeks, as I am no where near getting done with my bathroom that I am doing! Can't wait for when mine is as polished as yours!

Jenny said...

Wow! What huge transformations! I can't even believe where you began with the way they look now. Gorgeous! And who puts mirrors on every wall in any room, let alone a bathroom?!?

What an amazing transformation! A true job well done. I just cannot get over that fantastic tub and hand hooks. The six weeks went by so fast. I completed our entry, living and dining areas in a new to us 30 year old house. So, cheers to us! Have a wonderful weekend.

pam {simple details} said...

WOW girl, you rocked this challenge BIG time!! The stained vanity and wood beam are perfection against the white! I can totally picture how the black accents of lighting and tub will compliment the shower frame, dying to see it! LOVE the quirky hands! The industrial cart - just BRILLIANT!!! Amazing tile choices, I could go and on... If I were a guest I just might be rude enough to ask if I could use your MB on day 2! :)

Albertina M. Cisneros said...

Oh My Goodness!! I love it!! What a transformation! It is really spectacular! Congratulations I love every little corner...and love the hands too!

kate@willowinteriors said...

Holy bathrooms Batman!! This is incredible! I adore both of these and I adore your funky additions like the hands and that utility cart idea is killer (aka I might steal that!). Love everything and cannot get over the before pictures (not sure I would have been able to use the mirror bathroom!). Well done!

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

Remodel #1 looks like a spa! How fun are those hands?! And I still love, love the plank wall in bathroom 2. Great job and congrats on finsihing not 1 but 2 rooms!

Angela, Blue i Style said...

Wow. Wow. Talk about a night and day difference... I was already loving both bathrooms, but when I saw the befores I was totally stunned. Way to reclaim your space! I am so happy for you that you now have two beautiful bathrooms and that you never have to see that wallpaper or those mirrors ever again! :) ALSO, I LOVE the hands in the shower, and I'm glad I'm not the only one with a hand sticking out of the wall in their ORC space!

SHERRY HART said...

You lie....those are not the same bathrooms! Gah....Love...Love the vanity in the first one! Awesome job!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

Dana, this is double impressive. I don't know which is my favorite? I love both. OK, I am seriously crazy over the herringbone tile pattern in the shower. You are a renovation queen. Great job.

Julia Fain said...

your new bathroom is gorgeous! I love how you blended vintage style with modern.

jana bek said...

Dana it's amazing! I love your open shower and the utility cart turned vanity is genius! Amazing transformation!

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

This is wonderful. I love this bathroom

Julia Konya said...

Life has so gotten in the way for me and I'm so behind on blog reading. So glad I checked out your blog for this. Man this is so good. I've been planning on getting a floating cabinet too. Looks so amazing in your space! And that shower!!!! Those before and after photos are just awesome. Love what you have done.

John Mclaughlin said...

This is one of the most beautiful bathrooms that I have ever seen. There is something about being able to have a house of your own that really seems like it could make a difference. I personally think that being able to have this kind of work in order is something that also could be a great benefit in ensuring that you have the best home possible. The cabinets that you changed over really look amazing as well, and I like that they are of a darker wood as well. Thank you for sharing. http://www.countrysidepro.com/Repiping-Water-Heater-Repair.html
