As “Bathroom Makeovers Week” comes to a close, here are 5 more readers sent in that might inspire you to try something new with yours!
1. Ashley’s Master Bath
Ashley lives in a one bedroom-one bath condo. She painted gray and white stripes on the walls of her bathroom to add a little interest and fun to the space. She also created a display wall for her jewelry with frames.

2. Vilija’s Boys’ Bath
Vilija writes, “I live in a lovely and airy, but builder basic home. After 3 years of living with yellow and blue striped (and peeling) wallpaper in my boys’ bathroom, it was time to get down to business. We demo’d everything but the tub.
“I started with just a piece of white quartz and a chip of Martha Stewart’s perfect grey paint (Sharkey Grey). With the help of Pinterest and design-savvy friends and family, we managed to turn my Pottery-Barn-gone-wrong boys’ bathroom into a clean, bright, and modern room.”

3. Leslie’s Bathroom
Leslie writes, “We live in a Federal-style home built in 1856. This bathtub was added to the house around 1904 in this very room and in that very spot. The chair and mirror are both 18th century.
“The floors are painted with Sherwin Williams Gauntlet Grey and Honey White. The trim is SW Honey White and wall color is SW Barely Beige. The border is from Zuber, as are the closet door scenes.”
Katie writes, “As first-time-buyers with far too many hours of HGTV-watching under our belts but not any *actual* experience with home renovations, completing this hall bath and laundry room was a true test of our marriage.
“We scraped the dingy popcorn off the ceilings and created a huge mess. The wallpaper was so difficult to remove that we actually had to sand it off. We unwittingly picked huge porcelain tiles for this tiny, complicated room, and when I accidentally knocked over and broke the last intricately-cut piece, I’m pretty sure we both might have cried.”
“In the end, though, the effort was worth it. Our house sold in just over two weeks, and we didn’t even use a listing agent!”

5. Neal’s Bathroom
Neal writes, “We live in in a small, historic neighborhood in Little Rock, Arkansas. We knew we had to remodel the bathroom. It was a complete gut job that took about 3 weeks.”
Here’s how it looks now:
They all look great! I love hearing about your house projects. Thanks to everyone who shared theirs with us this week. I got so many great submissions that I’ll be sharing more of them when I have a chance. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
