Bathroom Reveal!


Get ready for major photo overload; I have hardly been able to contain myself.  I just couldn't wait to share this post with you and all the goodness that is J&A's updated bathroom.

Remember how it started out?


Now look at it!


I know what you are thinking.  That mirror.


I can't stop staring at it.  I keep walking by the room just to catch another glance.  It is everything I wanted it to be and more.  


I found the mirror on Craigslist.  I fell in love with the shape and it was the exact dimensions I was looking for.  It started out gold, but nothing that a little spray paint couldn't fix.


I used Montana Gold spray paint in "Shock Light Yellow".  When it comes to spray paint, Montana Gold is by far the best I have tried.  It runs about $11 a can, but is well worth the price.  The paint goes on smooth, covers easily, and comes in the most amazing array of colors.  For local peeps, you can find a selection at Ben Franklin Crafts.  


Okay, so besides the mirror, we also painted the walls (Silver Drop by Behr) and the vanity (Platinum Gray by Benjamin Moore, color matched to Behr 'cuz I'm cheap like that).


The inside of the vanity got a little update as well thanks to some graphic gray and white contact paper.


I found the drawer pulls and towel hooks at Home Depot.  They are a knock-off of a fancier (read: more expensive) version from Restoration Hardware.  I love how they glam up the room a bit.


The claw tub art print was made using my trusty Silhouette Cameo and some scrapbook paper.



We also switched out the light fixture, faucet and toilet paper holder, all from Home Depot.


The shelves above the toilet are from Ikea.  I think we will probably add one more at the top, and they definitely need some styling and accessories; however, they add much needed storage to the space especially as our twins get older.


Okay, so that was an obnoxious number of photos, but what can I say?  I am obsessed with this bathroom update.  Isn't it amazing what a little paint and some new hardware can do?  Now just deciding which room in our house to tackle next...
