Live Pretty on a Penny: Official Guest Bathroom Plans

Official Guest Bathroom Plans

Tuesday, January 10, 2017


Thank you so much for your kind words regarding my announcement of my Floor and Decor partnership. I am so excited to see this project come together and promise to share everything along the way. Someone asked in the comments on my last post will we be doing the work ourselves. The answer is YES!! Every single bit of it. There will be in-depth video content posted  on my YouTube channel as well, so make sure you are subscribed so that you don't miss it.

So let's flash back to a few days ago when I showed you our current guest bathroom space and my tour of Floor and Decor, and the floors that we selected as the starting point for this makeover.




So you remember the before pics of the bathroom? The state of our current guest bathroom space is drab, sad, and blah, unlike the guest bedroom which everyone who visits seems to love!









Great, now that we are all caught up, let's talk plans...

When I imagine this space, my goal is simple and classic. I want to avoid a lot of trendy pieces, and stick to something that both myself, along with my guests will enjoy for years to come. This is not a full gut and remodel, so the changes I will mostly be making are cosmetic.




First, I will be removing the current mirror, and replacing it. Round is the route I would like to go but I am not quite sure just yet.

Then I will add a fresh coat of paint. I've decided to go with the paint that I have in my living room...Benjamin Moore Sea Haze, color matched to Behr Paint. It's a nice soft gray-green color.

The vanity will also get a coat of paint. Currently it is white. I am going back and forth about rather it will go light or dark. I guess you will have to stay tuned to see!

We will replace the shower curtain, opting for a rounded version. Curved shower curtains just provide more of a luxurious and spacious feel, especially in a smaller space.

Piggybacking off the new curtain rod, the shower curtain will get a facelift as well. I'm opting for something more clean and fresh, with minimal pattern, as I want the floors to be the showstopper.

Lastly, accessories!! This is my favorite part. I love styling and accessorizing rooms. It's so fun to see everything come together just off of a few accessories. I am going for a mix of textures and contrast.

So that's pretty much it! What do you think? I am so excited for it all to come together. We've already gotten started with some of the "demo" work if you wanna call it that, and I am just too anxious.

Oh and I forgot to mention, if I wander from this mood board a little, don't worry. I tend to do that, but it at least helps me get a visual of where I am going with this project. My office mood board is living proof that it all works out in the end:)

I hope your week is off to an amazing and productive start.

Until next time!
