Price My Space: Bathroom

I'm excited to join Price My Space this week! Why am I so excited? Because I LOVE our new bathroom. We completed our major bathroom renovation earlier this year and everyday I feel so good inside when I step into our labor of love. If you have not seen the before photos you should really check them out to see the before and after shots.

Without further ado let me introduce you to my favorite room. Our bathroom.

Our bathroom might be small on size but not on style. Our Kohler Escale sink was $272.66 from faucetdirect.com. It really brings a modern touch to the space along with the vessel faucet set at an angle which was purchased from overstock.com for $110.99. We wanted to keep the clean lines of a modern look but still have our little kids be able to see themselves in the mirror. To accomplish that we had a local glass and mirror store cut us two mirrors with chrome J channels to make it look like the shelf is floating on one solid mirror. The mirror and channel came to $68.74. We used FreshAire paint from Home Depot which was $38 a gallon. It only took one gallon for our tiny bathroom.


The reason we had to gut our bathroom and start over was because of the tile tub surround leaking. We wanted nothing to do with tile in the tub after that experience. What we ended up doing was a solid cultured granite made here in the USA. It came to a total of $1256 including the three floating shelves for our bath items. The tub spout etc came was bought from faucetdirect.com for $242.73 and the tub itself was $401.74. I love taking tubs now in our super deep tub (Archer from Kohler). It is the perfect soaking tub.


The flooring is
Marmoleum. I can't find the receipt for it at the moment and I don't want to guess the cost. We didn't need that big of a piece and found that the cost was very reasonable. It is an excellent "green" product that I would recommend to anyone redoing a floor.


Some of the finishing touches in the room include our custom vinyl lettering for $21.35. I love having that be my first real thought of the morning when I get out of an awaking shower. It helps me start my day with a can do (cause I'm not alone) attitude. All of the bathroom hooks and towel bars came from West Elm and totaled $122. Our floating shelves were from Pottery Barn and included the spice jars for $119.20.


We filled the jars with sand and shells from our local beach for free. The tile was purchased from Lowes for apx. $170 including everything it took to lay it.


The best part of the room is something that you can not see. The best part is knowing that WE did it ourselves. It might have taken a few months, but we did the work. We didn't hire the work done. Instead we learned first hand the ins and outs of a major bathroom remodeling project.




Thanks for joining us for Price My Space! I hope that you enjoyed our bathroom tour.

Wow, what a makeover. I looked at your before pictures, too much pink! I love the tile and the colors you used. That sink is awesome and what a great quote to have on the wall. We are in the middle of a bathroom makeover, but nothing as major as yours.

The sink is gorgeous, a really great shape. The tile is very warm and works beautifully with the other colors in the bathroom. It looks like you did a great job installing it as well. Congrats on pulling it all together...on your own!

It's beautiful--I just love the sink and the countertop. Don't you just love walking into a room and having pride in knowing you did it yourself? Looks even better that way.

You have the same green paint and cabinet color that I have in my kitchen--how funny!
