Bathroom Makeover - Accessories Make All The Difference



Sometimes a makeover takes a lot longer than you ever think.  You run into all kinds of problems, but little by little things fall into place.  This is mostly just a simple cosmetic makeover.  Nothing major like knocking down walls or gutting to the studs.  The only major hicup was the holes in the wall behind the light fixtures when we took the old ones down.  I patched those and repainted, then we were good to go.

 Finding the right accessories is always the next thing.  Accessories can make or break a room and bathrooms are no exception.    I think I have finally found the pieces I am looking for.

Pick some stylish every day items that show your style.  I love these really classic tissue box, cup and cotton swab containers.


 Add the unexpected.  I could have used a silver tray to hold these necessary every day items, but a fun gold one adds an unexpected touch.  We aren't huge fragrance people and you don't have to have all the latest fancy bottles.  Display what you both use on something like this gold tray and it becomes special.


I love these stripe rugs and they tie in with the stripes I use in the master bedroom, so these were a great find.  Crate and Barrel to the rescue.  It's always important to have the bedroom en suite tie together if at all possible.  Accessories are the perfect way to coordinate the two spaces.


Replacing the bronze knobs with these simple classic chrome ones is another great update.  It ties all the chrome in the room together.


The new lights are definitely a major update.  The old ones were a little bit much.  These are a wonderful clean simple chic classic style, plus I love how much light they give off.


I think one of the biggest additions to the makeover is this really fun zebra painting I found at goodwill.  You can see how I added the black background to give it more importance here.  Adding updated art always makes a huge impact.  This is now the focal point of the room.


Waiting on some new faucets and I think this room will be done.  Stay tuned.

Be sure to get all your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live Monday afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.

  1. Marty, I know you are considering selling your home....my question is, have you ever considered painting your bath cabinets? Most new owners are put off by the older style oak ect woods. When we bought our down sized home 4 yrs ago the one thing that threw me off was I needed to paint the cabinetry in the baths. A suggestion would be consult a stager or your real estate agent and ask them if that would update and make the spaces more desirable. The baths are lovely, but that's the first thing I see when I look at the rooms. Just a suggestion.

    1. I talked with 4 different real estate agents and since my cabinets are a medium stain in maple, all 4 said not to stain or paint the cabinets. So I am leaving them all alone. In our area, oak is not favored, but all the more expensive homes are showcasing medium stained higher end maple cabinets.

  3. I didn't realize you are considering a move - well all the things you've been doing will certainly help the sell, that's for sure.

    We're just now showcasing medium stained high-end maple cabs in our new builds here too - I think people are put-off more with the high maintenance of painted cabinets. Especially if in retirement - makes sense. I think you've made a wise decision.

    Love to hear more about wanting to move - I missed that post, dang it. ♥

  5. I love the medium stained high-end maple cabinets. Unlike oak the maple has a nice smooth texture and its more neutral tone goes nicely with the different finishes and current color palettes.

  7. Marty, I think it looks beautiful! And, I love zebras! :) I adore black & white but the colors that are here kinda bother me as far as adding them to my bathroom/bedroom. The walls are a pale taupe which is really ok I guess but ALL the wood work/trim is a mocha color. :/ Do you mind sharing the color of your walls?

    I missed out on the fact that you're considering moving. Your home is so beautiful!

  13. You've done a great job with your changes. It's amazing that a few things can make such an impact.
    I'm stuck with brass in my bathroom. My recessed mirrored cabinet is all one piece with the light bar. If we changed it out it would require re-building the whole wall where it was.
