This is one of my favorite guest bathroom makeovers ever! With just a few small changes, this guest bathroom makeover made a big impact. We started this update with a few temporary changes that would refresh the space before we tackled the bigger projects.
We had lived in the house for almost 5 years before we got around to updating the kid’s bathroom. Although the shower curtain looks fine it was time to go. So I replaced the curtain and changed out the mirror for a quick refresh. You can find my mirror here and here.
Everything in this mini makeover started with the floors. I painted the tile white. I’ve used this same technique before on my entryway with great success. You can get the step-by-step instructions here. The idea was to update the space until we could make the big changes we wanted to.
In the beginning, I just painted the walls and made some simple updates to the decor. We had purchased a new shower curtain (above) but when it came in the holes for the shower rings were on the side. I did a quick fix by using drapery clip rings on the shower curtain pole. I ended up really liking it because it gave the curtain a little extra length, so it stuck. We tried several shower curtains, including the one below, before we settled on one from CB2.
Guest Bathroom Makeover Reveal
We knew that we really wanted was to gut the room to do some major updates. So when the time came, Rob and I couldn’t wait to get started. We went to work adding our new lighting, a custom vanity, and black hexagon tile. Our kids Jonathan and Libby share this bathroom, so it was important for us that it was gender-neutral.
Above the toilet, I did a $35.00 dupe of the $250.00 Work Hard Print from Schoolhouse. I purchased a Downloadable PDF and a frame from Walmart for a fraction of the price of the original.
The vanity we had custom made by Wild Tribe Design Company. We purchased our large basin sink from Wayfair and the two faucets from Home Depot. I topped it with this cute metal and wood 2-tiered serving stand to hold toiletries and control clutter on the counter.
We finished our guest bathroom makeover by installing Matte Black Tessile Hex 9″ x 10″ Porcelain Field Tile from EliteTile. I purchased this barrel basket from Pottery Barn to use as a dirty clothes hamper and it’s been perfect!
