Master Bath Reveal

Remember when I showed you the destruction which was my master bathroom? Well I'm glad to say ... It's FINISHED!

This was the final piece of the interior renovation we needed to do to our 1960s ranch style home. Let's take a trip down memory lane...

Tile overload... shower, floor, wall, countertop. Whew... it was a lot.


We raised the height of the shower about a foot by taking the coffer down. Beadboard was installed to cover the area that had been tiled. Rather than having the wall re-sheetrocked and textured we opted for the beadboard... which I LOVE and would have everywhere if that wouldn't be an overload. :)

We chose to use an inexpensive unfinished wood sink base from Lowes which we painted to match all the new beadboard and trim.

We also used an inexpensive prefab counter top from Lowes (for $44). I used my jig-saw to cut the hole for the sink.

New hardware

New plumbing fixtures

Clean clean clean

New mirror & lighting
New shower door (that actually closes!)

Colors Used:
Olympic Smoky Slate
Olympic Cake Batter

  1. Love the beadboard and your tile choice. It looks fabulous. Hugs, Marty

  2. That looks AWESOME!!! PLEASE come do mine!!! Your before pics look great compared to my NOW pics!! LOL!

  3. What an awesome reno! You didn't change the footprint but managed to make it spa like and fresh. Great work.

  4. I absolutely LOVE it Lindsay!!! The beadboard is FABULOUS!!

    And this answered a question I've had swirling around in my mind!! I've been planning to add beadboard to my bathroom, but I wasn't sure if I just did it on the empty wall or behind the toilet...and if I did behind the toilet did I do that little bit around the sink or not. But I love that you DID do the sink area too!! It finsihes it now I know. :)

  5. Do you hire someone to do the tile work?

  6. What color did you use on the walls? I like it!

  7. @The Reeves Family Yes, we did hire out the tile work. I think we could have done the floor ourselves, but it was a busy time for my husband and we have a trustworthy handy man who did our hall bath too.

  8. Your master bath is a lot better now! The wall color's unique and the tiles have brought life into your bathroom. We've been busy these past few days because we are renovating our front porch. Our today's goal is to replace the old doors with new wrought iron doors. Hope it goes out well with the walls. I've got my fingers crossed!

  9. we're almost done with our bathroom!!!i can't wait for you to see it! just posted a link to your blog on mine!

  10. NICE MASTER BATH! The tiles and the shower door made a big difference. I also want to renovate my bathroom and my front porch here in Arlington. I saw a lot of great finds and items at a home shop here in Arlington. Doors have unique and stylish designs, so I hope I can buy them all for our future home renovation.

  11. These days all frameless shower doors are very fashionable and are popular with many people for their sleek modern look. All frameless shower doors are made from thick tempered glass that is incredibly hard to break. This means it is possible to get years of performance out of an all frameless glass shower door.
