Transformation Tuesday: Boys’ Bathroom

I have enjoyed sharing our room transformations with you every Tuesday.  We have lived in our current home for almost three years, and it is fun to look at the before and after photos! Here’s today’s version…Transformation Tuesday: Boys’ Bathroom.

 This makeover really will show you the power of paint.  Here is how the bathroom looked when we moved into our home:

Transformation Tuesday: Boys' Bathroom

And here is how it looks now (well, on the few rare occasions when the bathroom is actually clean):

Here is how the bathroom space was transformed:

  • PAINTED THE WALLS.  Valspar’s Notre Dame was used for the walls and Valspar’s Comet Dust was used for the stripes.  To see the full tutorial for the “ticking striped wall,” click HERE.
  • PAINTED THE CABINETS AND REPLACED THE HARDWARE.  Shortcuts were used for painting these cabinets.  To see which shortcuts worked (and didn’t work) click HERE.
  • PAINTED THE FAUCETS.  Painting the faucets is a great temporary fix.  I have had these painted for a couple of years, but I am considering replacing them now.  To see the full tutorial on painting a faucet, click HERE.
  • REPLACED THE DOOR HARDWARE.   All of our doors handles throughout the home were replaced inexpensively by buying them through Amazon.
  • REPLACED THE MIRROR.  The mirror that came with our master bedroom dresser was painted and hung to replace the frameless mirror that was in the boys’ bathroom.

I love creating design boards, and I created one that inspired this bathroom makeover.  You can see it HERE.  This room actually was one of the winners in the very first blogging contest I ever participated in.  To see all the details, go HERE.

Bathroom Design Boards

I’m sharing two bathroom design boards, and I need your help!

It has been known that we need to remodel our master bath since we moved in almost three years ago. There is a leak under our shower, and more issues have come up since then.  It is time to make this bathroom dream come true! I am in love with this bathroom:

Still Dreaming...Bathroom Remodel

Besides being gorgeous, this bathroom’s layout is almost identical to our bathroom.  I would love to recreate a similar look.  Here is what our bathroom looks like now:


A little less exciting than my inspiration bathroom, isn’t it? I created two design boards going slightly different directions.  I need your help deciding which way to go.

Option A – Polished Nickel Accents 

Master Bath Design Board

I would use Moen Weymouth Polished Nickel Shower Head in the shower along with the white subway tile on the lower left and maybe a decorative tile on the shower floor like on the lower right.  The floors would be a white-washed faux wood tile.  I am a bath girl, so I would need the Home Depot Universal bathtub along with the Moen Weymouth Tub Faucet.  We have a single sink on two separate walls, so I would love to use two of Home Decorators Hampton Bay Vanity, and hang a Pottery Barn Astor mirror (which is also a medicine cabinet) above each vanity.  I would love extra lighting on either side of the mirror with Home Decorators Progress wall lights and finish with the Moen Weymouth bathroom faucet. I am a huge gold fan, but I’m not sure I can convince my husband to go gold he allowed me to paint all of our brass faucets in oil-rubbed bronze paint.  So, my second option includes that oil-rubbed bronze details (only this time I don’t have to do the work)!

Option B – Oil-Rubbed Bronze

Master Bath Design Board - oil rubbed bronze

I would use the Moen Weymouth oil-rubbed bronze shower head in the shower along with the shower tile and flooring I mentioned above.  Again, I need my tub, and I like the one from Home Depot Universal 6 foot oval bathtub with Home Depot’s Delta Cassidy Floor-Mount Tub Faucet.  I would use a neutral-colored vanity (Home Depot Newport Bath Vanity) along with Pottery Barn classic glass globe sconces on either side of the Pottery Barn Astor mirror medicine cabinet.  Moen’s Weymouth high arc bathroom faucet would complete the look.

I would love your input!  

Leave me a comment and vote for Option A (polished nickel) or Option B (oil-rubbed bronze).

p.s. Almost two years ago, I created a dream design board for our bathroom (hopefully this bathroom will be done before I have time to dream up another board)!  Anyway, I had similar ideas.  You can view that post HERE.
