Hello my fine friends! It is the moment you have all been waiting for, the master bathroom reveal! Ok, so you probably forgot we were working on this because it took us WAY too long to finish it, but I was reminded every day when I had to use our guest bathroom, haha! It has actually been done for about a month now, minus the shower glass, but I couldn’t hold out any longer.

I was hoping to have shower glass in before I wrote this, but life has been nuts and honestly it may be a little while before we get to that, so today is the day! I will do an update once we have glass, don’t you worry! 😉 In the meantime, we will be showering with our dollar store shower curtain I cut to fit our half wall. If you want to check it out head to my archived bathroom reno stories on Instagram.
Because its been a while since we talked about this renovation, let’s recap. My original wish list included the following.
- New tile floor
- New vanity and countertop
- New lighting
- New Faucets
- New tile shower with frameless glass
- Remove wall between vanity and toilet
- Add wall between vanity and bedroom
- Add sliding barn door between bedroom and bathroom
- Add sliding barn door to closet
- Reconfigure my closet
For a refresh, here is a side by side comparison of the before and after. No more swinging doors! I’m not going to go into ALL the details as to why it has taken us so long to finish because you would probably get bored, but just know we only actually worked on it for about four months. Here are a few construction shots to give you an idea of what all happened.
So what all did we do? Maybe the better question is what didn’t we do, haha! 😉 The closet doorway moved over. We built a wall between the bedroom and the bathroom. We took out the sofits that made the bathroom feel like a cave. We removed the wall between the vanity and the toilet. We scraped the popcorn ceilings and had all the drywall patched and re-textured. New electrical was added for additional outlets and lights. The plumbing for the sinks moved from the floor to the wall. We expanded our shower about 8 inches so we could add a seat to the back wall. And just to clairify, we hired out all the plumbing, drywall, and electrical, but everything else we did ourselves including scraping the ceilings (this is oddly satisfying), framing, tiling and finishing work. During this same time, we were also redoing our master bedroom by adding new wood flooring, a shiplap accent wall, DIYing our new bed and re-configuring my closet. Here is a visual of the floor plan change.Now the bathroom is done, and we love it! It’s so nice to have our own sinks again and no carpet in the bathroom! Seriously, what were they thinking putting carpet in a bathroom?
I have had a few questions about the vanity on Instagram and unfortunately the answer is a little complicated, but here you go. We bought a floating 80″ vanity (just the white cabinet) from Wayfair, but I wanted to customize it a bit. So I swapped out the brushed nickle pulls that came with it for square gold pulls and we built a wood frame to go around the vanity to give it a little MCM vibe. We had the countertops fabricated locally.
In the shower we laid the white wall tiles vertically to draw your eye up and make the ceilings feel taller.
I finally got my hidden niche! I love that I can stash all my products in here and you will never see them from the rest of the bathroom! Because lets be honest, I am not one of those people that transfers all my shampoo and such into pretty bottles.
Later today I am doing a video tour of our whole master suite on Instagram so make sure you follow me and check out my stories!
