Bathroom Re-do Update V

The bathroom has finally come together with the exception of the back splash. My first fused glass, back splash design was too complex for my skill level, so I've had to go back to the drawing board. I have several ideas which I'll start working on next week. Once a design is decided upon, there are ten 4 x 6 inch tiles to assemble, fire in the kiln and install around the vanity top.

This is the before. Pretty drab, isn't it. lol

This is the suggestion from Layla of The Lettered Cottage.

I changed it for this look after playing around with Behr's Color Smart.

The brown trim on the shower curtain ties to the mirror. The white curtain ties to the white fixtures and tile.

Several years ago, I removed the usual 4 x 4 mirror over the vanity and replaced it with this mirror which hung over my mother's dresser. I had it reframed in mesquite.

The antique, leaded glass window with a touch of red.

The red in the picture ties back to the leaded glass window.

Whew. The hard work is over and the rest, i.e., back splash, is going to be fun. There are few more details to complete, i.e., changing out the light switch plates for brushed stainless/nickle ones, pick up two stainless door pulls, and, ugh, replace the grout around the bathtub.

Until next time, God bless.

The color really brightened it up and added a festive look. You really have an eye for decorating. It looks so nice.

Lynn, that bathroom is going good, but may I suggest that you put some touch of little flowers like the curtain on the first photo, it adds softness to the room.

Thank you for your comment regarding the cyclone, yep it was over and glad we are still alive, I appreciate it so much.

WOW! You really brought the design plan to life! The room looks so great. That stained glass is to die for, and I love how the room opened up a bit with the open shelving.

Wonderful! What a difference in look. The bathroom looks much larger than before. I like being a back seat driver in a room makeover! This is fun!

The difference in the before and after is incredible, it opened up the space a lot. I love the stained glass and it ties in with the picture perfectly.

Sorry I'm so late getting over, while you've been painting I been raking leaves and doing last minute yard work. I'm almost looking forward to winter so I can get my bathroom done.
