Guest Bathroom Remodel

My amazing husband finished work on our bathroom this weekend.  Sometimes I feel like I won the lottery landing such a handy guy for a husband.  He remodeled our master bathroom when we first moved into the house, but this one is larger and a lot more work so we had to save up the funds for a few years.  This is our guest bathroom and the one our kids will use as they get older.  It was a source of embarrassment for me whenever people came over to our house for the first time.  Some features of the original room included old stained linoleum, chipped paint, and a water damaged door.  Here are some before photos:
The vanity cabinets were custom built at a local place because the size of the large one is not standard.  Jeremy stained them himself.  The porcelain tile, backsplash, and counter tops all came from Home Depot.

We went with mostly grayscale items.  Our shower curtain features a photo of Mt. Hood which is a mountain that can be easily seen from most parts of Portland.  We decided that a pop of color would be a nice accent to include in the hand towels and bathroom rug.  We went with yellow and found most of those accents at Target.
I made the Daniel Tiger print to put above the toilet and I also created the line artwork to mimic the shape of Mt. Hood from the shower curtain.  We also have a large framed photo of Multnomah Falls that was given to us as a wedding gift by a family friend.
I love that it's a room that we can easily change by updating our accents over time and I'm excited for all of our guests to use the restroom now.


  1. I love it, and as someone who has lived through remodels, I appreciate your hard work even more. ;)

  2. You are one lucky lady having such a handy husband - this is so impressive. I really like the before and after pictures. Nice.

    1. Believe me, I know how lucky I am!

  3. What an amazing transformation! I love all the little details!

  4. (I accidentally posted my comment on the wrong blog post!) This is a beautiful remodel. I'm really impressed, especially as I have no DIY skills myself. I really love those towels!


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
