Master Bath Makeover

I’m so excited you guys. We replaced the flooring in our master bathroom! Bye, bye ugly old linoleum and hello luxury vinyl plankflooring. I love how it turned out. Of course I now wish we could rip out the shower and update it, but there’s only so much we can do. I love looking at the before, from when we first moved in, with that hideous “murder room” red that was going in in the bathroom.

There’s a beachy vibe to the room now, and it feels much bigger. I plan on framing the mirror with white molding to complete the space.

Our next project is going to be to replacing all the hard surface flooring in the living room, kitchen and hallways with this same flooring. It’s going to be a lot of work, but I know the end result will be worth it. This is one project I wish we could hire out, but I’m on a deadline since we’re hosting Thanksgiving (eek!) so I want it done asap. Lucky for me, Match is motivated too.

Why the sudden urgency to do this project? Well…let’s just say I had the sick day from hell a couple weeks ago. I went to do a load of laundry before napping, and decided to clean the front loader filter. They put those warnings on the filter to tighten it down for a reason, people!! 30 minutes later I was sloshing across the carpet and hating my life.

So now we’ve got ruined carpet in the hallway, which we’ve been wanting to replace for awhile. Just wish it hadn’t been this enforced timeline! It was a terrible, no good, very bad day. Just glad Match wasn’t too angry with me! Notice the ugly linoleum in the kitchen. Can’t wait to get rid of that too!

But back to the makeover. Here’s a closer look at the before (we got rid of those ugly red walls before we even moved in). I love the blue, it’s “Caught in the Rain” by Sherwin Williams. We also chalk painted the vanity white, which ties in with our kitchen cabinets. But those floors, though.

My amazing hubby, doing all the hard work. I did rip out the baseboards and do all the prepping, but he did the majority of this project. He’s a keeper, that one!
