Without further ado, let's see the before and after. It's a pretty dramatic transformation.
Before, all you could see was dated wallpaper.
Now it looks so much better. So fresh and clean!
The wallpaper was torn down and replaced with an accent wall of graphic tile (Merola Tile Twenties Petal) from Home Depot. The pedestal sink was replaced with a white vanity, and a new toilet was installed. The pink-ish tile was replaced with wood-look tile in a grey wash. The capiz mirror is from HomeGoods. Almost everything in the room is new, including the faucet and light fixture.
One of the main reasons my mom wanted to tackle this bathroom was the fact that it's visible right when you walk in the house, and she didn't want the first impression of her home to be a pink 1980s bathroom. You can see we weren't too fond of it because the only before photo I can find is this one, with the bathroom door closed.
How much more exciting is this house now?
Anyway, thank goodness that pinkwallpaper is gone! The pattern on the tile really pops from the front door. It was the perfect choice. And I still can't get over how perfectly that capiz mirror fits that narrow space above the sink. What a lucky find!
I'll be back soon with some more pictures of my mom's house. She has done a lot of work to improve the house, and it ooks completely different now. Can't wait to share the tour with you!
