Mr. DE and I have been knocking out home projects left and right this summer. One of the next projects on our list was to update our hall bathroom upstairs.
The previous owners of our home added a nice, new master bathroom, so the family bathroom in the hallway is only used when we have guests stay with us or at parties. So, we wanted to update the bathroom, but we didn't want to invest too much in it since it doesn't get a lot of use.
Now for the good part. Here is the before (a picture taken at the inspection before we bought the house, so previous owners stuff):
Yikes. Our house was built in the 1930s, and this bathroom certainly reflected it. The previous sellers only added the new master bathroom right before they sold the home, so this was the only full bath in the house. I don't know how the previous families did it. This bathroom is s-m-a-l-l.
In the planning process, we decided to embrace the yellow and black tiles, since we weren't going to rip them out and start from scratch.
And I love how it turned out.
Mr. DE also added some left over knobs from our kitchen remodel. It makes the vanity much more functional. (I really need to get a new soap dispenser!)
I also bought two yellow and black butterfly prints from etsy seller east ashley studio. They are beautiful in person and very reasonably priced.
I bought the two frames as a set at Michaels, and with my coupons they came to $4 total. I love how the black frames pop against the white walls, and balance the black frame of the mirror.
I just love how it turned out. Nothing earth shattering, but it just looks a lot more coordinated now.
Have a great weekend!
