Welcome to our first Master Bath renovation(we were 8 years younger and a bit more aggressive with this one). It was a much bigger deal than our little mini master bath revamp that I mentioned here. This baby needed everything! Well almost everything..the only thing we didn't have to rip out was the tile in the bath/shower area. With a really good scrub down she was just fine. Oh but the rest of her..well
Look at that pretty vanity, the gorgeous shell sinks, the 80's wall paper, "wood look" toilet seat, peel and stick wood floors(now don't get me wrong there are actually some pretty nice wood look floors out there these days, as a matter of fact we have some in our current casa that we love)etc...you get the picture. There was also a closet located in the bath that we had to paint and recarpet.
So we started with demo! I didn't take many "in the process pictures" but you can see below we obviously tiled the floor with "slate like" ceramic, Made all of the trim out of MDF, replaced all of the doors( I actually spray painted all the door knobs and hinges because those puppies can really add to the budget..in a bad way) and we got another free toilet from the city of Austin like I posted about in our first bath reno. We removed the wallpaper, retextured and once again tried a yellow color that I just couldn't make myself like. Then the hubby built these cabinets out of MDF. After lots of paint and poly they looked really good and were so inexpensive!
See those lights? They are super cheap outdoor lights from home depot, the tower cabinet in the middle was from target but it was white so that got repainted and with my makeup mirror on it and all the white goodies inside I think it turned out pretty nice.
The color in these pics looks a bit purple but it was a taupey grayish tone.
In this pic below the door on the right is the little toilet room shown in the first picture and the one on the left was our closet. Doesn't fresh white trim and new doors make all the difference in the world?
I was never good at keeping up with receipts but this was a very inexpensive yet huge makeover for our first master bathroom and we LOVED how it turned out.
Oh and see that crown molding..we found it at a home materials salvage store and it was made out of styrofoam so it was really easy to work with and affordable too. Have you guys taken full advantage of MDF in your homes? It really saved us $$ and allowed us to be able to afford a certain look without the hefty price of wood!..
