We are wrapping up phase 1 of our bathroom reno. Can you believe it?? I’m not sure we totally can either. Anyway, super excited to share some (almost there) pictures. Check it out below!
This project has been a big one, but we’ve learned so much and didn’t have the budget to pay someone to do it for us. So for us, it was totally worth it. I do think I would do it again, with a few tweaks however.

Here’s a reminder of what this bathroom looked like before. It could’ve been worse, but it’s also not very pretty. The tile was old and had silicone caulking in every grout line, which was smeared onto the tiles (you can see it in the picture).
We knew we wanted to replace the tile and tub eventually, but after having Miles, we wanted to get a move on so that he could take baths in a nice bathtub for as long as we’re in this house.
Done (Phase I)
When I was looking at the finished tile and tub next to the white board and batten and white sink and vanity, I knew some white needed to go (even though that’s a very, and I mean VERY, rare thought for me). I used Rustoleum Chalked paint in Charcoal for my vanity. You can find it here. I love how easily it goes on and covers.
I took the doors and hinges off of the vanity to paint it. Once I had the vanity painted, I loved the handles so much more. When it was all white, I was debating switching them out. But now I’m so glad I didn’t.
We went with oil rubbed bronze for our fixtures. I just love the contrast against the white tile. You can find the fixtures we used here. I thought about going with a vintage brass look, but that’s probably more trendy (and probably more expensive).

Our sink faucet is currently unavailable on Amazon, but here is a very similar one.
I’m sure you’re not surprised by this, but I have more plans for this bathroom as we head into 2020. Part of it involves painting the walls. I’d tell you what I’m thinking, except for the fact that I don’t even know what I’m thinking yet… 😉
Phase II of our bathroom was going to be flooring and a new vanity with more storage, but after some discussion, we’ve decided to leave the vanity and just do the floors. What that looks like and when, however, who knows. Hopefully sometime this year!
As always, friends, thank you so much for reading and following along with our bathroom progress. Please pin below for later!
