Master Bath Makeover


Here is my master bath that I tackled all by myself "Hubby did help me with the heavy stuff though." This all happened less than a year ago. This was by far the best, learning experience I have ever had. 






This was the before a basic builder home bathroom, I wish I could find my photos of the opposite end of the bathroom. Believe me your not missing much it was just ugly.


  So here is my new beauty and a list.
  • Vintage dresser repainted. 
  • I added a wood top to raise 1", for inside clearance of plumbing.
  • Delta Faucets from Lowes purchased a while back.
  • Mirrors from Lowes, they were dark and have been painted Behr Oyster. 
  • I used original white sinks from the old vanity.
  • Light Fixture Polished Antique Nickel Hinkley, I love love this fixture very well made.
  • The walls are wood plank stripes, cut down to size 8" stripes from lowes 8mm underlayment. 
  • Planks are painted Behr Swiss Coffee. I actually have used this all over my house for base boards and trim.
  • Chandelier was given to me by a friend and i love it...


I found this Cast iron tub on craigslist for a great deal it was also in great shape. I had to sand the outside of the tube to remove rust, then primmed and painted. The Inside porcelain was in great shape, all I had to do was clean with basic bath clean products. 


  • White subway tile from Home Depot.
  • Snow white grout.
  • Quick Pitch pre slope system, this gave me the perfect slope. In removing the old insert I gained 6 feet around. Awesome!
  • Flooring is Pebble Tile with Snow white grout.
  • Rain shower head is from lowes. 
  • Shower handle is a Delta series. 
  • Shower arm was a fantastic deal off of Ebay $10.00. I purchased it knowing it was chrome, so when it arrived I gave it a very light sanding with a green scrubbing pad and viola, a perfect satin look. I made sure I sanded in the same direction to give a even look.
  • The Stone is a long quarts back splash, that I cut down to size and placed as my entry shower top.
The tube hangs over the ledge by a inch and if I ever put glass. I have more than enough room to place it. I have also gained 4.5sq feet by the tube. Plus by removing the old vanity, I gained more square footage around that area too!



  • Shower curtains are from Amazon and are much longer than your normal curtains.
  • Curtain rings are basic curtain rod rings purchased at Target.
  • Shower rod is made out of copper rod. I soldered brackets to the rod on all three ends. This allowed me to screw them in to the ceiling and walls. As you can see its not copper anymore, I gave it a light brushing of silver paint.


  • Wall color on this end of the bathroom is Revere Pewter from Benjamin Moore




  • Tile is from lowes 
And that is it, all done and I'm in love....
