Guest Bath Renovation: Before + After

The last room that got a lot of attention in our renovation was the guest bathroom.  We painted it when we first moved in and changed the light over the vanity, but that’s the only work we’ve done in there.  Here’s the before photo:

Again, not terrible… but don’t those yellow-y doors and vanity top bug you?  First off we took out the vanity, horribly done “framed in” mirror that the previous owner DIYed, off center towel ring and light (we kept the light fixture for a future project).

The entire bathroom got fresh paint (same light gray as the rest of the house) after the walls were patched.We bought matching vanitiesvanity topsfaucets and knobs in the master & guest bathrooms (just different size vanities) so they’d be cohesive and similar to the kitchen.

Also like the master, the owner before us took the lazy path and didn’t take the previous vanity out when putting in new floors, so Scott had to spend some time doing it the right way.After the vanity was in and the paint was dry, the mirror and lighting fixture were hung.  We also bought a new towel ring and hung it centered with the vanity on the side wall.

The final touches were replacing the towel rack and the outlet covers to a new white ones.Once the list of things to do in the bathroom was done, we were so happy with the finished product!  It’s much brighter, cleaner and finally updated.  With these rooms all done, we are thinking about painting the guest room & office the same gray color.  Onto the next project..

    I have great plans for my guest bath too, and it’s pretty much identical to yours in layout. What’s funny is that the colors I had decided on are just the same as yours – gray, navy, and white. I had also planned on a silver mirror. The difference is that I want to paint the vanity navy. Thanks for sharing! http://www.MilkandHoney.mobi
