Hall Bathroom Makeover Part I | Before & After

Whoever underestimated the power of a gallon of paint and a free day needs more people. In 2013 when we moved into our home, mentally I knew the paint colors weren’t going to work. Unfortunately our coins and  free time missed the memo, four years later we are still tackling the upstairs.

We’ve tackled: The laundry room, Addison’s Room, Adrian’s Room, The Living Room, The Kitchen, The kitchen again, and the kitchen again.

Here’s a recap of my top 3 favorite makeovers.

When weather derailed our plans to spend the weekend in Asheville, we decided to tackle the mess of a hall bathroom. This weekend we’ll be attacking the trim, the cabinet, doors and the linen closet if time permits. The last step will be adding in decor and new linen. Seeing as how Thanksgiving is on our heels we’ll be done with the project sooner than later, or the usual “excuse the bathroom” will have a different connotation this year.

I’ll be quiet, and let the pictures talk…cause there are few words for the travesty that was.

Before I go, excuse these grainy iPhone photos but when the spirit moves you, you go. When we are done I’ll take the pretty pictures.

  1. Love the colors you guys chose. Makes the space look much brighter. I hate our hall bathroom with a passion. I’m at the point where I just want to blow it up with a stick dynamite. I’m so glad that we have plans to get started on renovating it after Thanksgiving.
