Bathroom Reveal

Alright it has only taken me six months but I finally love my bathroom.

Yes, that is my arm :p

This bathroom was very difficult to photograph, but the changes I made are really amazing.

Here is what the bathroom looked like when we moved in:

When we first renovated the house I was 21, and all I wanted was a pedestal sink, the problem was that my contractor picked out the mirror which did not go with the sink at all.  The result?

A top-heavy bathroom with a huge vanity and a tiny sink.  That didn't work.

Then Jeff and I found this great sink and drawers, I painted it and it came out great.

We added the new sink console, a big mirror to replace the old one, and a new light.  I love the result.  There is also a lot more storage, which is good because we lost storage when we lost the other mirror.

On the other side, I fixed up the window, added plants (I love plants in my bathroom, makes me feel closer to nature) and, of course, the new shower curtain I made.   

See the plants peeking out?
On the other side of the bathroom is a simple wall.  Jeff and I installed two towel racks (one for each), my painting, and a small self.

I like to paint toilet paper!
My ring bowl for when I wash my hair.
Then on your way out you have the linen closet (so you always have towels when you need them).

We will have a mirror for the door...soon.
My bathroom is finished.  There are still a couple of things I want to do (change the tiles on the floor!!!), but overall it is in good shape.  I'm very happy with how it turned out.  I really like all the white tile, it just looks clean (I also just scrubbed it from top to bottom).  I really like that. 

What do you think?
