Hall Bathroom Reveal


Always love the before, so here is mine. This is what the bathroom looked like before, definitely builder basic bland,  Hate the look of that slab mirror.  I had already replaced the strip lights above the mirror, and painted the room with a soft camel color, so we had a little bit of a start to go from.  The shower curtain is from our previous house.  Re-using what I had.

Then I showed you this fabric that I think I will make a new shower curtain out of, but in the meantime, I just refreshed what I already had.  Turns out this fabric is a much darker turquoise background that the picture shows, (I ordered it from Fabric.com), so I have to repaint since my current pale camel color doesn't look very good with this fabric.  So, I have to think about this one for a while.

In the meantime, working with what I already had going on, seemed like a great option, so I forged ahead.
I found a fabulous large wood framed mirror, with a lovely beveled mirror inside.  The frame has such a pretty finish on the wood.  Striations of a honey color, darke walnut and a slight striation of gold.  Beautiful and so rich looking in person.


Thank goodness the mirror wasn't glued on, just held in place with clips, so it was easy to remove.  I had some leftover paint, so touching up the wall was a breeze.


You can see the finish on the mirror better in this pic.  I bought a new towel holder and dispenser.  I already had the soap dish and tissue holder.


Same monkey print that I had originally in here, but I did remove the corbel and brought in a large vase with twigs and grasses, plus a few feathers.


These two prints were here also, and the towels are some that I had.





Here you can see that I hang the shower curtain and the liner from the ceiling.  I think it gives the room more of a dramatic look.

For now this is a great redo for $58.  The mirror was $39.95 and the accessories included the dispenser, towel holder and a new toilet brush holder were $18.   I found them all at Ross.

If I decide to use the turquoise fabric, then that will create a whole new look again.

Thanks for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

  4. Nicely done, Marty! Changing the mirror made a big difference; that's why I'm hoping to do the molding kit around ours. I like your shower curtain up high like that. Now I have to go look at ours and see if the rod is attached in place or if it is a tension rod. It was here when we moved in. Although, I did already buy a second shower curtain that I couldn't resist on clearance at TJ Maxx for $5.00! I'm thinking of doing a Summer look and a Winter look with the two I have now. Maybe you could do that with your new fabric one, too.

  7. I thought your bathroom was lovely before, but love it even more after! I think I may have that same light fixture over the mirror. I'll have to check it out. I'm also going to be redoing some bathrooms in the near future. It's not a done deal, but I may be getting a new home and I plan to do a lot of remodeling!

  19. The mirror really did give your bathroom a makeover all on it's own so everything else you added is just the icing on the cake! Everything really looks wonderful and I love hanging the shower rod higher up. It certainly does give it a more dramatic look.

    Have a super day!

  30. The new mirror really made a big difference. We have a mirror like your old one in our bedroom bath. It is on the list for a makeover and I am trying to decide what I'm going to use instead. I think ours is glued to the wall...I hope I'm wrong. I love the new fabric, but what you have now looks great too.

  48. I'm so behind on my comments! I love your new mirror! You lucked out on the old one not being glued on! You pulled a new look together very nicely! I love the other fabric you got. Perhaps if you go ahead and make the shower curtain and hang it- the wall color will be okay.
