Above counter bathroom sink with butcher block counters and chrome faucets

Our bathroom REALLY needed remodeling but because we are remodeling our kitchen, we had a limited budget for the bathroom.  My daughter went through a phase where she dyed her hair every color of the rainbow.  She also dyed our bathroom in the process.  She moved out this summer so we decided it was time to redecorate the bathroom.

This is what it looked like before:

(as you can see, we already started making a mess before I remembered to take a picture.  oops…)

Bathroom Makeover Before Pic

This is what it looks like now:

Above counter sinks, butcher block counter tops, and a new paint job made a huge, updated difference.

I wish you could see it in person, these pictures don’t do it justice.

Changing out the counter-top and the sinks was so much easier and more affordable than I expected.

There were a couple of screws holding the old counter top in place.  All we had to do was scrape away the old caulk and unscrew the screws, and remove the old counter.  Then we simply screwed the new counter in the same place.

The butcher block counter top was just over $100 at IKEA.  We cut it down to size and had the perfect amount left over for the back-splash.  We screwed and glued them in place.  You will want to use a water-proof caulk to seal the crack where they meet so that water can’t make it down there.

The biggest problem we had during this project was that my husband accidentally cracked our old mirror and we had to have a new one cut.

It was an odd size and I found that it was hard to find a replacement at a decent price.  I ended up buying a large mirror from IKEA and having a local glass company cut it down.

After that it was easy to glue it back in place and re-glue the molding back on.

I purchased these rectangular, above counter bowl sinks and tall faucets from Amazon©.  They are sturdy, well made, they look great, and they are a great price.   Make sure that you purchase pop up plugs as well.

We used a hole drill bit to carve large holes where we wanted the sink drains and the faucets to go.

Then we caulked around the drain holes on the underside of the sinks, we placed them in place, and secured the drain plugs until they were tight but not tight enough to crack the sink bowls.

Most of the accessories and I bought from Target and IKEA.  They always have great options.

I bought the Turkish towels from Target and Amazon.

The jute rug is from Bed Bath and Beyond.

I painted the room gray and white and filled it with natural elements to make it feel seaside casual.

I found this lovely shower curtain at Bed Bath & Beyond®.

Apparently, I’m a shower-curtain snob.  I had the HARDEST time finding one that I truly liked.  I have mostly sons that will be using this bathroom so I didn’t want one that was too feminine however, I didn’t want one that was too masculine either. Ideally, I would replace the tub with a shower and coastal-style shower doors like the ones in this post.   Of course, that will probably happen eventually but, I couldn’t do it right now.  I like this curtain because it’s a Turkish towel style, it has a natural feel, and the colors are perfect.

In case you have my problem and you suffer from not being able to replace your bathtub the second that you want to, 

My favorite places to shop for shower curtains are Target© and Bed Bath and Beyond©. :)

To complete the look, I added some hooks on the wall and Turkish towels.
