Before and After:  Master Bathroom Edition

Here it is! 1956 meets 2012….

This was such a hard, but rewarding renovation. We did every little step (and misstep) ourselves after full days at work…   demo, stud work, drywall, concrete floors, paint, installing toilets, sinks, faucets, and tile. The only thing we left to the professionals was installing the shower door (with glass that large, you’ve got to trust the professionals)!

Details here.

What an amazing transformation!! I love everything about this space.  I love the tile she chose for her shower, the bead board on the walls, and the pedestal sink.  I love how they tore out the shower wall to make it a big walk in shower with a glass door to make the room look more spacious.  And I love the soothing neutral colors she used.

Well done!

What is  your favorite part of this makeover?
