Half Bath Source List

Friday, April 12, 2013

I would have to turn the blog over to my husband for all of the technical details of how we did what we did, but here's the breakdown of the items we used for our half bath renovation.

WALLS & PAINT | we wanted to add plank walls to the back wall to give some texture and interest to the toom. Due to the small space, we decided to keep the paint white to make it feel larger.

VANITY | we originally wanted to find a vintage table at the barn sales; however, we had a very narrow space to work with. We only had 19" and most standard vanities are 21", so even the ones you find online at Home Depot & Lowe's left us with very slim options to choose from. After having no luck finding something premade, we decided to stick with what we know and make our own. We opted for an open vanity (table vs one with cabinets) because the room is so tiny. Leaving things more open made it feel not quite as small.

SINK | since we wanted a table for the vanity, we wanted to use a vessel sink that would sit on top of the table. We bought the American Standard Studio Vessel Sink in White from Home Depot.

FAUCET | my husband and I both have always liked the vessel-style faucet ever since we visited my college roommate's family. They had a similar faucet in their guest bathroom and we always knew we wanted to have one in our own home one day. This bathroom seemed like the perfect place. We purchased the Pfister Ashfield Polished Chrome 1-Handle Single Hole WaterSense from Lowe's.

BASKETS | we wanted the industrial look of metal baskets and fortunately, we found the perfect ones at Homegoods

SOAP DISPENSER | this was actually the first purchase for the bathroom. We bought it at Luckett's Store.

TOPIARY | Homegoods

HAND TOWEL | Homegoods (noticing a trend?)

LIGHT FIXTURE | we tried a few options for the light and ended up deciding to go with the
Progress Lighting P5722-81 1-Light Wall Lantern in Antique Nickel from Amazon.

MIRROR | We originally purchased a mirror with a wooden frame for the bathroom from Homegoods; however, once we started installing the vanity we realized it wasn't quite the look we were going for. We opted to go with the Grundtal Mirror from Ikea.

I think that's everything, but if you have any questions about the bathroom renovation feel free to leave a comment.

The Reveal | Half Bath Edition

Monday, April 8, 2013

And we're back....  So while I've been on blog vacation (unintentionally), my husband and I have been busy with projects around the house.

Who knew that one of the smallest rooms in the house could take so long to finish! We just completed renovating the half bath on our main floor. When we first bought the house, the small room was completely covered with wallpaper - an alternating design was even used to cover the air vents and light switches!

So after living with the wallpaper for less than one week, the wallpaper had to go (or so my grandmother thought!).  My mom, grandmother, and aunt came up shortly after we moved into the house to help us get settled. One afternoon when I came home from work, I found my grandma in the tiny half bath removing every inch of the wallpaper.  So, the wallpaper was removed back in July, but the real renovation didn't begin until this January.

We had a ton of inspiration, but in the end we are MORE than satisfied with the results. Without further ado, here are the photos.

First, it's always best to remembered where you started. Here's the before photo:
