No More Pink Bathroom

That's right...we got rid of the pink bathroom (if you didn't guess already). It just wasn't current and it wasn't anything that we could work with even slightly. So out with the old, in with the new.

Here is a photo of the pink bathroom in case you forgot how PINK it was...


And a few more "before" photos...

Can you also see that the inside of the closet was pink too?

And here are a few "in progress" photos...my vision for the bathroom was bright, clean, and airy. This is a very small bathroom as you can see, so I wanted to keep it fairly simple. You can see a few of the paint samples we tried out.


We ended up using Feather Grey by Benjamin Moore. I love it. It's more of a blue grey, so I knew I wanted a white shower curtain and crisp white towels. 


The monogrammed towels shown here were a bridal shower gift. A monogram is the perfect gift for someone in my opinion. It's personal and practical.


Looking at these pictures is like a breath of fresh air compared to that pink explosion.

And here is a photo as of today. 



I had recently gotten that shelf above the toilet while thrifting and spray painted it yellow. I wanted to add a pop of color as I thought the space really needed it. This bathroom is fairly narrow, so it took me a while to find something that would fit above the toilet but not be too deep. This shelf has been a great addition.

I also just ordered some fabric to make a valance for the window in here as well. I hope to update you on that in another post.

What do you think of our renovated bathroom? If you have a small bathroom like this one, how do you make it work?

  3. Hi holly - It looks sooooo much better. What a huge change. I just read in that "yellow" is going to be the new "in" color. You are ahead of the trends. :)

  6. I had a turquoise one that was pretty bad.....and it was set in that really thick concrete from the 50's. Gutting that sucker was quite the job. You did a great job bringing it up to date!

  8. What what what?!?! This is the same bathroom?
    Incredible. Love the light gray walls and that shelf is so pretty.
    We were the victims of a pepto pink bathroom in our old house. There really isn't much you can do with that except start over from scratch!

  9. It's hard to believe that anyone actually chose to have a pink tiled bathroom, isn't it? You did good girl! You'll be able to re-accessorize anytime you want with the choices you made.

  12. We have old tile in our bathrooms too. One is black & white which isn't bad, but the other is yellow & black. I would love to do this one day. It looks great!
