Before - Master Bathroom

Only because this transformation is amazing, is why I am brave enough to show you the before of our master bathroom.  Now remember, when we moved in, we painted, carpeted and added wood floors to the main living area.  But, the master bathroom was last on the list.  Then came three girls in college and two weddings and the remodel just got pushed further and further down the list.

I do want to remember how it started though.  Mainly, to remind myself when I think of the cost, how great it is now!

Who would put pink tile in a master bath?  Someone who also believed in gold fixtures. It was 1991 when the house was built.  Yes, like I said,  a long overdo project.

I framed the huge mirror just like everyone else on Pinterest. I replaced the gold light fixtures and painted the cabinet and that helped for a bit.

Nothing says glamorous like a molded shell sink.

The border around the top of the wall was my first recreation project from a blog DIY that I saw.  Fabric dipped in sheetrock mud and and nailed to the wall.  Luckily it came off easily.  I was afraid chunks of sheet rock would come off.  A bit of sanding and paint, you can not tell it was ever there.  Yay!

The gold to oil-rubbed bronze doorknob DIY you can see here.  They lasted about four years and were badly chipped.

The carpet, yes I said carpet, in the bathroom was eventually hidden under a family heirloom persian rug.  It did not really help, but in my mind maybe.

The jetted tub was the only thing that remains.  It is the perfect size for me and the grands.

Here is a peek at the transformation.  I was going for vintage southern glam.  I think I nailed it when hubby said he feels like he is in the Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans that we visited a couple times.

You can see the faux no saux (sew) roman shade here.
The shower glass is on order, we are in the home stretch!  I think there may be a bubble bath every night in my future!
