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.
Visit her blog to see the rest of her (very cool) place!
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.”
You can see more photos and get more source information on her Pinterest page.
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.”
4. Katie’s Bathroom
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:
Thanks to everyone who shared their kitchens with us this week!

It’s difficult to choose a favorite bathroom when they’re all so lovely, but Leslie’s really speaks to me because of all the beautiful historical details. Great job, everyone! 🙂
I really like lots of details from each. Ashley’s is cool, with the vintage accents, and I like what she’s done with her condo – very homey. Right about now I’m feeling jealous of what I’m imagining is her relatively simple life in a new, manageable sized condo in the city (instead of my big, old, falling-apart house in Podunk). The grass is always greener….. 🙂

So many talented people! Thanks for sharing.
I like them all, the Katie’s bathroom is nice and bright and it stands out.

Great transformations! I love Katie’s. I am such a fan of the simple gray and white! Great job everyone!
Thanks Melinda! We’re moving this week… gonna miss it!
I really love Vilija’s room for her boys. It’s classy, modern, clean. The quartz countertops are perfect.
I love Neal’s bathroom. It’s so elegant and cozy. Love the colors and all the details. I’m a girly girl and I wouldn’t mind having this bathroom in my house! Great job! And in only 3 weeks! 🙂
I loved Katie’s bathroom. I loved all her choices. But as a homeowner with a vent too close to the plumbing, that heater vent on the floor under the sink made my heart jump into my throat. And maybe it’s the way the picture turned out, but it looks like the gorgeous mirror sticks out in front of the cool lights. I’d love to get a better look at this room. The feel she achieved what I’m trying to do in my 1899 cottage (again, since I redid it in 2004 and the tenant we had trashed it absolutely and completely).
Neal Dodson says
Thanks, Wendy! This was the first room we remodeled, and it was definitely a learning process. We actually had to move the vent because it would’ve been in the way of the pedestal. The problem with moving it wasn’t that it was too close to the plumbing though (that hasn’t been an issue) — it was that we put it too close to the wall! We had to cut the quarter-round molding around it. And yep – we didn’t think about the light fixture. It still works fine, but it would definitely be better if it was higher up.
I love Katie’s bathroom the best. It has a nice simple clean design.
Thank you, Kim! 🙂
House Crazy Sarah says
I love when a bathroom becomes a place where you actually want to spend time…. rather than somewhere gross where you just want to close your eyes and get the heck out of there!!
These are all beautiful.
Wow, I really like Katie’s. It’s a huge change for the better, and I can relate to how difficult a renovation (especially a DIY one) can be on a marriage.
Thank you, Patience! It wasn’t hard to improve on the maroon paisley wallpaper. 🙂
I’m a huge fan of white, however I like Neal’s bathroom. It’s nice to see some colour and warmth in a bathroom; it seems to give it a more luxurious feeling even though the room is relatively small.
Thanks so much for featuring my bathroom, Julia! What an honor. I really love Leslie’s — that floor and clawfoot tub! Drooling.
Thanks for sharing it with us, Katie! And best of luck with your move!! 🙂
