Master Bathroom Makeover Reveal

It is always so wonderful to have a project done and to stand back and admire the results.  The jewelry for the bathroom makeover was the final touch.  Gorgeous new faucets to replace the old builder basic.

 This was going to be such an easy simple refresh, then we ran into a snag.  The holes in the wall that we discovered when we took the old lights down have been repaired.  The new light fixtures are installed and they are wonderful.

Just as a reminder, this is what it looked like before.  Nothing wrong with this, but it just needed a small refresh.

 The lights have a really clean and simple design.  The white shades add so much more light than the previous tinted shades on the old fixtures.

 See, you can't tell where I had to patch a whole that was about 6" square to the left of the backplate.  I patted myself on the back, I did a good job.

New black and white towels and my new diy zebra artwork are definitely more up to date than my previous accessories.

The new striped rugs are a great compliment to the new Zebra art.

But the final finishing element are these gorgeous faucets from Pfister.  This is the Bronson in their wonderful brushed nickel finish.

 This was the one the builder put in.  I had this same builder faucet in my last house that is now 22yrs. old.  They must get these things for free.  Serviceable but not very pretty.

 Just look at this beauty.  Sleek modern lines with a bit of a traditional nod too.  I love it

It always amazes me at how a simple update like the faucet can take a bathroom to the next decade.

 I love the graceful lines of this faucet and it is so well made.  You can feel the difference when you turn the water on.

 This is definitely the finishing jewelry for the room

This is a sponsored post for Pfister, but all opinions are 100% mind.  I can't thank Pfister enough for these gorgeous faucets.

Now we are up to date on all fronts inside, I think.  Hopefully the weather cools down soon so we can get some work done outside in the backyard.  It is hard to get much done in humid 110°.
