Boys Bathroom Remodel

Boys Bathroom Remodel

I am in love with our boys’ bathroom remodel. We kept the same footprint of the bath to help with the budget, but we updated the walls, paint, flooring, and vanity. The cosmetic changes made a huge difference in updating the bath.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Signature Hardware. All opinions are 100% mine.

Here’s a before of the space:

And the after:

My goal was to design a space that was masculine enough for my boys while still maintaining the sophisticated traditional style of the rest of our home. I also wanted to add the navy in their bedroom while adding some additional pops of color. Bathrooms are spaces you can have a little more fun in with patterns and color.

Obviously the centerpiece of the bathroom is the gorgeous double sink vanity. It is from Signature Hardware, and it is the Robertson Mahogany Console Double Vanity in midnight navy blue.

We added the matching Halifax Mahogany Vanity Mirror Set above the sinks.

The stunning faucets are the Rotunda Widespread Bathroom Faucet with Lever Handles, and I love their modern lines.

The vanity provides plenty of storage for the boys, and they each appreciate having their own sink. The bottom open storage provides for customizable organization. We added a basket for each boy and use the center to store towels.

I painted the toilet room a deep green (Vine Green by Behr) to add a little unexpected color (and it’s the boys’ school color).

The flooring is luxury plank vinyl which looks like wood floors, and we added a schoolhouse light and vintage artwork which adds a fun contrast to the more modern wallpaper.

The boys love their updated bathroom and promise to keep it clean, but time will tell…

Thanks so much to Signature Hardware for partnering with me on the bathroom remodel! Go check out the half bath remodel I did with them earlier this year.

Navy Bath Makeover

It is amazing how paint can transform a space!  I’m sharing all the details behind our inexpensive Navy Bath Makeover.

This post has been sponsored by BEHR®.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Navy Bathroom Makeover

When we first moved into our home, I was loving all things neutral.  I added a paneled wall treatment, painted the walls a neutral beige and added a starched fabric wall treatment to our half bath.

Four years later, I decided it was time for a bathroom refresh as we head into the new year.  I have been crushing on navy lately, and I knew a color would add some fun and drama to the space – without breaking the bank.

Navy Bath Makeover

I went to our local Home Depot and played around with BEHR’s ColorSmart app.  It is so easy – just grab a paint chip and scan the barcode!  The app allows you to see the color in various spaces, and it helps visualize what your room will look like in a color.

The display also shows the various paint sheens and suggests the best use of each. I chose BEHR in Dark Denim.  

It is a navy, but it does have quite a bit of gray in it.  I wanted to avoid a more royal blue look, so I made sure to find something with a deeper undertone.  My space also has no natural light, so I only painted the upper wall to avoid making the room appear smaller.

I used BEHR’s Premium Plus Ultra paint in the eggshell finish – one of my favorite finishes.

I also painted the bathroom door using BEHR in Orion Gray – the same color I recently painted my laundry room doors (see more here).  I am slowly painting the doors in our mudroom hallway this gorgeous medium gray.  The doors were an off-white, but they see so much use that they were hard to keep clean.  This gray hides so much.

For the door, I began with two coats of KILZ premium primer.  I used a foam roller for a smoother finish and brush for hard-to-reach areas (like the inset panels in the doors).

Once the primer was dry, I added two coats of BEHR in Orion Gray – once again using the roller and brush.

The result is a sophisticated entrance into the bathroom.

The navy adds so much to the space!  I found an inexpensive rug and floral art and kept the decor minimal.

As I mentioned before, the bathroom has no natural light.  I kept the paneled walls their original off-white color to not allow the room to be swallowed by the darker color palette.

BEHR in Dark Denim is now one of my favorite navy paint colors!  Where can you see this color in your home?  I already know some other rooms I’d love to see it in my home!

Bathroom Remodel Tile

I’m sharing all the details on our bathroom remodel tile today.

Bathroom Remodel - South Cypress Tile

I shared our master bath reveal earlier this week, and I have gotten so many questions about our tile.  I partnered with South Cypress, and I have had the best experience with them.

I knew I wanted a subway-tiled shower along with a black and white shower floor.  I also knew that wood floor tiles would be perfect for the space.  I began searching the South Cypress website and found so many options.


I ended up settling on the following

I ordered samples of each of the tiles and was immediately in love.


I placed my order online, and the sales associates were really helpful with questions and helping me determine how many tiles I needed.

Shipping was fast, and the tile was delivered straight to my door (actually garage).


I only had a few tiles in one box that were damaged in delivery, and South Cypress quickly sent me the replacements.

The Segato Riverwood is so gorgeous.  It has dynamic grain patterns and cross-cut texturing exquisitely mimicking the intricacies of vintage faded hardwood.  The tile is Italian-made and provides the timeworn look of aged hardwood without the upkeep headaches.  It was a perfect match for my gray vanities.

The Overton has a clean and classic look of subway tile but is extra special because of its handcrafted look.  It adds gorgeous textures with its shine reminiscent of traditional glazed ceramic tiles.

The Manhattan provides a clean, classic look.   It makes a distinctive statement in our bathroom and allowed us to create our own design.


A special thanks to South Cypress for helping me make our dream bathroom a reality!

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:

This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

  • 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.
