Bathroom Before and After

I have already alluded to the bathroom makeover when I blogged earlier about de-brassing the girls' bathroom.  Well, it is FINISHED!

Almost.

I still need to paint all the trim since for whatever reason the baseboards were only primed and never caulked or painted when the previous owners replaced the floor.   However, the big exciting part of the makeover is finished! 

I really love it.  I still wish the engineered marble was gone, especially the weird little shelf over the toilet, but for now, it will do.  I will blog about the details, especially cutting down and framing the mirror but for now.. the big reveal.

  2. Hello there,

    I love how you debrassed your bathroom. I am in the process of debrassing my house now. What color did you paint under the sink? It is like a dark brown or did you stain it?

  4. @Bridget: It is actually painted. The color is Martha Stewart's Burl from home depot.

    @Liz: The curtains are actually just a shower curtain I cut down and hemmed. Originally I used them in my kitchen (here: http://www.themoney-pit.com/2011/04/kitchen-after.html )

  5. How hard is it to remove the glass doors from bathtub? Does it leave a mark on bathtub?? Thanks!

  6. @Norsk.. it wasn't hard at all. There were some small holes which I filled and the caulk needed to be scraped off with a razor blade, but compared to the ugly door, it isn't anything noticeable. Details of the door removal are in this post: http://www.themoney-pit.com/2011/09/out-out-damn-brass.html

  7. I have a very large mirror that extends over our toilet the same way yours did. Did you remove the whole mirror and start over?

  8. @lrdobry I actually had the mirror cut down and reused it.. The nitty gritty details are in this post: http://www.themoney-pit.com/2012/05/framing-mirror-without-miter-cuts.html (It also includes how I framed it)

  9. If you keep submitting well written articles just like this then I will always keep returning back to your blog. Really good material.

  10. I’m impressed, I have to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is something that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled across this in my seek for something referring to this.

  11. How did you get the shine on your painted vanity and mirror frame? Did you varnish it?

  12. I didn't.. but you could put a coat of poly on it since it is in a bathroom. I used a high gloss paint. The entire tutorial can be found here: http://www.thekimsixfix.com/2012/05/framing-mirror-without-miter-cuts.html
