Our Master Bath's New Look!

Pin It!
I *say* new, even though this was done quite awhile ago ... my absent-minded self just forgot to share it with you!  Oops.

Anywaaaay ... *some* of you may remember when my husband and neighbor removed this "lone" cabinet in our kitchen so that I could replace it with shelves that I made (which, I'm happy to report still haven't come crashing down ... yet, lol):


Well, here we are ... almost two years later, and I can't believe I never showed you where we placed the cabinet after removing it from the kitchen!  

Here it is!  It's now in our master bath, being used as our linen cabinet!


Do you recognize the cabinet below it?  It *used* to look like this in our sitting room:


That was ... until my paint brush soaked with Annie Sloane's Old White, along with Duck Egg (followed by dark wax) attacked it!


It's the perfect little chest to go under the cabinets and serves as a great spot to display my perfumes:


And, before I show you the other changes in this space, let's have a gander at what this room looked like after we first moved in 6 years ago, shall we?  Well, *hellerrr* reds, golds and greens!


I loved that color combo for years!  THEN, as my tastes were starting to migrate towards blues and browns, I changed it to THIS (by adding two mirrors in place of the large one ... and adding a fun vinyl art, along with new lights and fun rug).  The blue chest is now in the sitting room:


Then, THIS latest change happened ... besides adding the kitchen cabinet, I also painted the mirrors to match the newly painted accent chest.  I also painted the vanity lights AND, I painted the cabinets Annie Sloane's Old White.  We also just recently had the room painted BM's White Sand to match our master bedroom:


It's so much lighter and brighter in here now that the cabinets are painted ... I love it (so do my faux hydrangeas ... just *look* at how they are blooming, wow)!


I kept the wall art in between the newly painted mirrors, which I made by simply wrapping leftover fabric (from the shower curtain and window valance) around inexpensive canvases I bought at Michael's:   


I added a cute, fun rug that I recently spotted at where else(??) ... Home Goods:


Our 2x2 shower area remains the same since its last makeover.  Although, I did recently find these great, striped towels from HomeGoods that seem to match the fabric really well! 


The garden tub has new art above it,


along with a cute shelf from Home Goods:


I have a couple more things that I'd like to do in here, which I hope to share soon!

Just for fun ... let's look one more time at what my taste was a few years ago:


And, what it is now:


Wow, what a difference a few years can make!  LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by ... have a fabulous weekend!

I'm partying with fun friends here:

I love it! I just ordered some Annie Sloan paint in Old White and now I'm afraid of how many things I'm going to paint with it ;) The blue and whites look so pretty together. You did a great job.

It looks so fresh. I too had the red, gold, and green going on and the blue and brown. Wonder what will be next, probably dark wood again since we have painted our wood white! Lol

Pamela said...

It is beautiful and so romantic!

Dawn Mcdowall said...

I love it, I just want to paint everywhere with ASCP haha I love the way your old cabinet looks aswell, gorgeous :)

Jessica Kielman said...

Wow...just gorgeous, Becca! I love it! Did I spy a bottle of Jessica McClintock perfume? That used to be my favorite...for obvious reasons :)

Gee Singh Newbanks said...

I think a lot of us were fans of red , gold and greens back in the day. That was the colour scheme we had throughout the open area. The gold is gone... the green took on a lighter, mossier shade and I still luv red :-)
Beautiful changes Becca.
Hugs, Gee

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

What a difference light paints can make. It looks great.

Eclectically Vintage said...

Amazing how tastes continue to change! Your before reminds me of my green/maroon phase!

Love the colors - so fresh and inviting! Now, go fill up that tub, light a candle and pour yourself a nice big glass of wine!

Miss LindaLee said...

Beautiful rooms and the changes you've made are fantastic. I love your color choices as well as your imagination. You're able to "see" it even before you pick that brush up! Right? Thank you so much for sharing.

Beautiful, Becca! It is so fun to see how your tastes have evolved! It looks like a totally different room. Now, if I could just have a tenth of your energy!

Carol said...

Now that is a "WOW" transformation -- it is always so amazing what paint can do. I really like that Duck Egg Blue -- so fresh and pretty. Lovely job, Becca!

WOW!! What a transformation!! I love the lighter and brighter look, it all looks so beautiful Becca!
Love the fabric you chose for your shower curtain and window too, those towels go perfectly with it!

Suzy Handgraaf said...

What a HUGE difference. I love it, Becca! Does it make you all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when you go in there in the morning??? No excuse now not to start every day in a great mood. lol Looking forward to seeing what else you have up your sleeve!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

I love the new look of the bathroom...so light and airy...I am trying to do the same thing, but without painting the cherry cabinetry...You did a fantastic job Becca!!...I can definitely see the direction of colors you have been gravitating towards and have achieved!
Oh, did you use the AS lacquer on the cabinetry?

Kathy Moreland said...

Wonderful makeover Becca! Love it!

Melissa Miller said...

Absolutely fresh, light, bright and stunning! You are the master of beautiful change.

I love it Becca! You are so good with a paint brush! I'm glad my gold, red and green days are over ;)
xo,

Lil said...

Love! The blue and white (and brown) color scheme is so cheerful, refreshing and sophisticated. You even painted the light fixtures - I would not have thought of that. I am just now embarking on a Master Bath update after ten years. Maybe I'll try a cute rug, too!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Isn't it amazing how our tastes change. I also LOVED reds and yellows and thought I would never change them.... now I'm going very neutral! Your cabinet that you keep your perfumes in certainly went through a wonderful transformation!!!! I LOVE the color combo! You really did a fabulous job. YOu bathroom looks airy and fresh! Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Kathryn Ferguson Griffin said...

Becca, it's so fresh and pretty! I'm changing colors in my house as well. Going from green, gold, eggplant to blue, white and beige. I love your color choices! The cabinet you painted is perfect!! Thank you for sharing. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party. Here's the link if you want to check it out. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com/2013/03/make-it-pretty-monday-week-39.html Hope to see you at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

Your master bath is so pretty. Love the new colors, especially the cabinets. Love the wall paint too...that's the same color we painted our Family Room and Foyer.

Elizabeth (Blue Clear Sky) said...

That is a lovely and fresh makeover for your bathroom, Becca. Love the colours and a great use for the extra cabinet too.

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

So pretty, great transformation!

The Coffey's said...

Becca - I don't think anyone has asked yet but where did you find the great sign "Fresh Hot Water Baths"? Love the entire look, really love the sign.

So nice! I'm inspired!

Gabrielle Jeromy said...

Our taste for fashion does change and so as our taste for interior design, and in this post I saw how your taste with your bathroom changed. I do love the previous look of your bathroom, but it just does not seem appropriate. The last one is a lot more suitable. It has a very chic and cozy look. Good job! -Majestic Exteriors

Lida Swisher said...

I really like that signage above the bathroom mirror. And the new rug is certainly cute and unique! Going white on the whole thing was a great idea. Dark color themes in the bathroom seems to be depressing, somehow. Anyways, have fun in your new-ish bathroom! :)
