Ranch House Redo | The Front Bathroom Part 2

Wednesday, April 17, 2013
When I look at the bathroom to-do list it's not even halfway done. But the bathroom has made quite the transformation so far. I'm pretty happy with it! 


Here's the to do list to refresh your memory.
The Front Bathroom To Do List
In order of priority.
  • Remove textured stickers in bathtub
  • Remove wallpaper
  • Paint walls & vanity
  • Replace light fixture with this one
  • Replace vanity hardware with something more sleek
  • Replace mirror
  • Update medicine cabinet, I'm thinking chalkboard Next on the list! I bought chalkboard contact paper that I plan on putting on the cabinet. I figured paint might be too permanent ;)
  • Replace bathroom hardware (faucet, towel bars, hooks, switch plates, etc) I still need to update the switch plates  but everything else is done! 
  • Buy a new brighter filament bulb for the new sconce. The one that came with it was waaay too dim. Cool looking, but dim.
  • Hang shower curtain Bought the shower curtain, but I actually don't mind how the tile looks with the new color scheme. It's been toned down so much that I don't feel the need to hide it anymore!
  • Find a small shelf for above the toilet. The Ikea shelves I originally planned on getting were too big.
  • Hang up towel hooks.
  • Paint cultured marble countertop using this method?
  • Update bath to bath and shower combo
  • Replace tile
  • Replace flooring*
  • Replace vanity*
* This will not be happening now, or anytime too soon. Basically part of my wish-list for the house ;)


Isn't this black sconce from Lamps Plus just gorgeous? You can see the not-so-pretty lightbulb here. Working on it!

A little close-up of the counter. This is Arden's space, so we have her brush readily available and the little basket on the left holds her hair clips and hair bands. And the fun little chalkboard jar holds cotton balls. I love the new towel ring too. It's a great way to display fun hand towels.


Continuing with the theme that this is Arden's bathroom...here's her fun step stool that she LOVES. She can now climb up and turn on the faucet and wash her own hands. I also hung a cute little hand towel (gifted to me by Bryn!) from the drawer handle so she can reach it.



The adorable glasses print that Arden has lovingly dubbed "Momma's glasses" and black candle fit in perfectly with the star of the space, Mr. Pelican. Mr. Pelican is Arden's bath-time buddy ;)

And just for kicks here's the before shot!


So overall I'd say this is pretty good progress! It's my favorite room in the house right now (ironically). I think I'm going to slowly add more art to the walls and make it more of a gallery, which will add even more character. Can't wait!

  2. I love all of your bathroom updates, especially the painted vanity. I have the same Ikea step stool that my cats use to climb up into the bay window. What did you put on the legs of the stool to keep it from sliding? Also, one word of caution - be sure to vent the room adequately so the moisture does not ruin your wonderful artwork.

  4. I am currently looking for a faucet for our bathroom redo. This one is quite nice. Can you share which one it is or where it is from? Thank you. We are doing a black/grey/white color scheme as well. So modern, yet timeless.

    1. I actually got it from Joss & Main, but it's a speakman. Hopefully that helps! It's a really nice quality faucet, we couldn't be happier.

  5. Did you change the color of the bath tiles or do they just look different from all the changes? Great transformation!

    1. That's the funny thing! We didn't, it's crazy how changing the colors in the room changed how they look? I actually really like the tile color and how it ties in now. Less pink and more of a neutral sandy color.

    2. Totally. It looks like you retiled the tub! Amazing how a wall color, etc. can change things like that.

    1. Thanks Chels! Love it when a room comes together like this one. After the pelican, everything just fell into place :) If only the rest of the house was so easy....sigh.

    1. Thanks Elisa - thought that was cute too, although I did think it was a little bigger. lmao.

  10. love the pelican, and it ties in the tile color and the cabinets really well, which is a big accomplishment for a bird! we have an old 80's light fixture in ronin's bathroom with 3 lights, do you think the one light is enough for the whole bathroom? assuming you get a brighter filament...

    1. This bathroom is actually super dark and the bulb we have in the sconce now is definitely bright enough. So I'd say go for it!

  12. I love this remodel so much! Especially exciting to see how much a modern faucet can update even a shell sink :) Doing it this weekend-and the colors are perfect. Although I think mine may be a little too pink to pull this off.

  13. Looks awesome! What color paint did you end up using? Your mood board showed gray, but just wondered about this white! :)
