We have been here for 2 years and have finished the bathroom renovation. The room was so dark, cold, damp and smelly. The walls were half yellow with seratone around the bottom half. The vanity was olive green and falling apart. Here are the before and after photos.
The feature wall was painted in Sea Lantern a Wattyl paint behind the white gloss vanity. To make the white vanity pop against the sea green walls. The theme for the house is a coastal beach style.
We renovated this bathroom on a budget. We didn't want to spend any more than $5,000. But only went over slightly, spending $5,340. As we did all the labour ourselves. My husband did the stripping of the old bathroom, all the electrical, the plumbing, rebuilding the shower, putting in new batts, re-gibbing, installing new shower liner and glass door, installing fan, lights and towel rail. Phew most of the work basically! I did all the prep work, plastering, painting, and styling. I also created a beach painting which finishes off the room. Here are the before pictures, with the make shift sink.
Before the walls were gibbed above and this one on the right is with Aqualine on the walls and I had done some plastering. We kept the original ceiling which I painted with Acrylic enamel. We ripped up the old vinyl flooring and got a timber look vinyl to replace it.
The wall above where the towel rails are was very bare so I painted a beach painting to finish off the coastal beach theme. Now the room is complete. I love the mint and blues.
Here is a before and after of the toilet which we did after the kitchen renovation was complete.
I painted the up-cycled shelf and the art work for the toilet myself. Check out my painted projects here.
