Today, I want to share a different kind of makeover….my Guest Bathroom makeover. We moved into our house almost three years ago. After our initial efforts to make it our own, I am slowly making updates here and there. The most recent was our Guest Bathroom Makeover. I am by no means an expert, but I have always loved interior design and am obsessed with home blogs. In my head, I have my whole house planned out.
GUEST BATHROOM MAKEOVER
We love having friends come and stay with us. Now we finally have the room to do so and give them their own space and privacy. Also, we are now lucky enough to have my parents live close by. I also wanted them to have a nice space to call their own.
There is nothing that will get your butt in gear like a deadline. I had been wanting to refresh that space for a while. The last time we had friends coming, I finally did it.
Here are a couple of before photos. It was your standard no-frills, builder grade bathroom:
It is truly amazing what a gallon of paint can do. I was on a tight budget with this space, so I knew paint was the key. I gave the walls a fresh coat with my favorite color Benjamin Moore “Simply White”. The cabinets were painted with some leftover front door paint. I also gave them a bit of an upgrade with this cabinet hardware. Here are some after photos:

It took a total of 4 days. Most of that time was spent waiting for the paint on the cabinets to dry. They have a total of 4 coats – primer, 2 coats of paint, and a clear acrylic coating to make them look as smooth and a shiny as possible. It took one full day for each coat to dry.
A new faucet, gave it a richer look immediately. I also upgraded the rest of the hardware with towel bars that were left over from my parents bathroom renovation.
I wanted more storage for towels and small accessories, so I installed this wire shelving and a small floating shelf to make it look pretty. The bath mat and trash can are from Target. There is nothing grosser, in my opinion than bathroom trash, so I was happy to find this cute lidded trash can. It reminds me of the Serena & Lily baskets, at a fraction of the cost. I also like how it hides the toiled cord, or whatever you call that thing.
I stocked up on towels during a clearance event at Target. The only thing I still need is a small piece of art to hang below the small floating shelf to make it complete.
I didn’t want to spend the money on upgrading the shower door, so I simply hid it with a pretty shower curtain. I love how it turned out. It is now a pretty bathroom that is enjoyable to spend time in. Nice toiletries complete the look and make guests feel pampered. What do you guys think? After “practicing” on this space, I think I feel confident enough to tackle our master bath.
