It’s been one year since we finished the master bathroom. Safe to say, that we love it! It’s kind of amazing to go from having a small, cramped bathroom to something that functions and is so pretty to look at. To celebrate the one-year anniversary of our 2nd major renovation, here are some updated pictures of the master bath now. You can see all the before and afters here, here & here.
It took me a year, but I finally hung some wall decor up in the master bath. It took me a really long time to decide what to hang for some reason. Initially, my plan was to go with two of the square Ikea Ribba frames on the wall by the sinks. But, real life happened and I broke the glass of one of the frames when I was trying to put the back back in. (#whoops) I actually like it better with just one. Two may have been too much.
Over the toilet, I found a cute metal cutout sign at Home Goods. At this point, I finally realized that the toilet is actually not center on this little wall because of the bump out where the plumbing is. The toilet also has to be so many inches away from the shower due to codes, so it’s not quite center. I debated whether to center the sign above the toilet or with the shelves, and ultimately went with the second option. To trick the eye and not make it look off-center from the toilet, I added a candle next to the tissue holder. It balances out the issue nicely. The candle is a Ballard Design outlet find that was originally orange. As I’m slowly removing the orange from the master bedroom, all the existing accents are getting a new paint job (spray paint is fun!).
Rugs & Towels
Originally, there was one rug in front of the sinks. I recently switched it out for two rugs from Ikea that are softer and take up more space. And hubby and I each get our own 😉 I also swapped out the existing brown towels for white ones. If you really want to feel like you live in a hotel, buy yourself some fluffy white towels! These are from Target and are super reasonable. I buy a few every now and when they go on sale (you can see the hall bathroom ones here). It’s nice to have all white linens and bleach everything when they get dirty.
And of course, I still love the barn door! It’s definitely my favorite feature in the house. The only issue we’ve had is the seasonal swelling – thank you humidity in the South! Most of the year, it’s not an issue, but during the hot summer months, the tracks scrape the wall a little bit. Nothing a little touch up paint can’t fix! I am curious to know how any of you lock barn doors, if at all? One of our more curious pups figured out how to use is nose/head to shove the door open a smidge. He clearly doesn’t like being left alone!
