Beautiful new bathroom

Our bathroom makeover is complete! Thanks to my wonderfully amazing husband, I now have a bathroom that I am proud to show off! He pretty much did all the work, I was just the creative consultant!! We definitely wanted to give our bathroom some life, but we didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. So, with some paint, a few new fixtures and some organization, our bathroom is ready to be seen!
(After) The people that lived here before us did some custom sponge painting in neutral colors. Not really my style. I don't like the wood fixtures either, but like I said, we were doing this on a small budget so we did what we could to make them better.

This house is very small, just under 1,000 square feet. So accordingly, the master bathroom is very small as well. This is not our "Forever House", but it is our house right now, so we do what we can to make it ours while we are here!

This bathroom just doesn't have much going for it!

The shower is a pretty nice size, but that is about the only thing great about this bathroom.

But look at it now!!

I love this color! Aqua Chiffon on the walls above.

We painted the light fixture and medicine cabinet white as well as the chair rail, moulding and bottom portion of the wall. We replaced the old faucet with a new one that has white handles.

We painted the cabinet white too, distressed it and added some crystal knobs. Love it!

I even painted the towel hook white and distressed it just to make sure it fit in!

Silver shower curtain, rugs, toothbrush holder and waste basket finish it off. The white shelf above the cabinet was my inspiration for the whole thing!

I think I will call this my Tiffany & Co. bathroom! It has all the things I love!

I had the same medicine cabinet in my last home. Very function, but it was that same finish. I like how it looks white the way you redid it. Also like your wall color. Looks like a happy place to see first thing in the morning as you are getting ready.
