Before & After- Kat's Bathroom

I know that these are long overdue, but this is the first post in a series (that will be posted periodically over the next couple of weeks) about the redo on our new house.

Today's blog post is the most girly room in the house...Kat's bathroom. Please note that there is NO natural light in any of these rooms so the lighting is really bad in these photos...this is when I know that I desperately need a photography class!!!!

Kat's bathroom is actually a series of three rooms that form an "L". The first room (that you see here) is the guest vanity area and is the only bathroom access for anyone who is just here visiting. There is also a toilet/shower room (room 2.) Then finally a private vanity area for Kat just off her bedroom (room 3.)
Above is the way that it looks as you come in from the doorway(this is the guest side of the vanity.)

Below is the way that it looks from the toilet/shower room looking back towards the doorway.


Before: This is what this side of the vanity looked like when we bought the house...very retro! That wallpaper actually had a silver foil running throughout that you can't see in these photos and those fixtures are VERY GOLD. *shudder*


There are several pieces in this room which have been redo's...the lamp below...


This mirror. It's the same gold mirror that was shown in the guest vanity area in the before photo above when we bought the house...simply spraypainted black. Now it is on Kat's side of the vanity.


The pieces getting ready for their spraypaint...


And a redone stepstool that was originally part of Jacobs room. It used to be a hat rack (you can see the original hole for the hat rack in the photo above), but it works perfectly (sans hat rack piece) for Kat so that she can wash her hands.


This is Kat's private side of her vanity area looking into the toilet/shower room. As you can see here, we were not shy with color. ;o) The rooms are a series of pinks and purples based from her quilt in her room  from a Liberty of London quilt from Target.


And here is a before shot of her vanity area...


A close-up detail of the shower curtain (from Target)...


Looking into Kat's vanity area from the toilet area. That photo on the wall is by my very talented brother, Dave.


This is just a detail shot of my "Loo" sign in the guest vanity area. The "Loo" sign was bought when we lived in England. The hook is from Hobby Lobby.
