Downstairs Bathroom Transformation

In a post earlier I shared with you some of the finishing touches that would be going in the downstairs Bathroom (click here to see that post about the countertops, tile, and sconces).  Here is the completed product!

The Cabinet hardware and mirrors are from Hobby Lobby.  The shower curtain is from West Elm and the grey bath mat is from Target.  The paint color is (once again) Ozark Shadows lightened 50%.  We added some mdf boards just stacked horizontally one on top of another on the wall above the vanity and left that area painted the same white as the rest of the trim work in our house (Kwal "apple peel").

I love how the vanity turned out.  I HIGHLY recommend my cabinet guy (McKean Woodworking), he also did the fireplace and built-ins in my Living Room (see here).  

The numbered hooks on the wall are from a local store called "real deals"

 I think the Faux Marble countertops turned out great!  I paid a little extra to get an ogee edge but unfortunately they still did a regular block edge on the ends of the countertop - Darn!  If I had known I would of had them just leave that off and let the countertop run right into the walls.  To read more about these laminate "faux marble" countertops click here.

Because the countertop is laminate you can see a dark seem along the edges of the "block" backsplash piece so I painted that little edge with some white paint to hide that.  Got that tip from this blog.

I also love how the penny tiles look on the floor, these pictures really don't do them justice!  Click here for more info on the tile.

The hooks below and the "MEN" letters are from Hobby Lobby, I spray painted the letters Navy blue to coordinate with the blue vanity.

If you remember this was my inspiration photo from pinterest - I love having a picture to help me when designing a room!

The last area of our basement finish that I still need to show you is the Kitchenette, it still needs a little painting then I will post that final area!


  1. It looks amaaazing!!
    I love the vanity color and the hardware is bananas! The curtain is super cute and matches perfectly.

    Job well done!

  2. love it! the word MEN adds a little whimsy, love it.

  3. Fantastic job! Yougave sone many useful tips. Thanks for sharing this beautiful space:)

  4. I'm thinking of doing this countertop in our kitchen to save on costs. I'll do the ogee edge as well. Can I ask what it cost for the countertop and how much extra the ogee edging was?
