We Bought a Fixer - Guest Bathroom Gut

Hi there! How are you?
 It was a long time coming, but I am happy to report that our guest bathroom remodel is complete! 

 You may recall the creepy space we started with. (Read more here.)

Quite a transformation....Isn't it? 

The vanities came from Ikea.

We really like how the narrow sinks work in this long, skinny room.

I dig the little towel hooks and metal tray that came with the sink.
Adds a little bit of "counter space" for a guest. 

The tile may look familiar to you.
We used the leftovers from the kitchen  to do this job.
We used a dark grout to give it a little more contrast. 

 The creepy brown "lowboy" toilet......

....was replaced by a "comfort height" water saving one. 

The carpet was replaced with tile. (Yes, there was carpet in 2 of our 3 bathrooms.) Gross! 
We used something very similar to what we have in our kitchen. 

The tired cast-iron pink tub......

......was replaced with a white tub and gray surround. 

This is the only part of the bathroom we didn't do ourselves.
We paid a plumber to install the tub, surround & shower fixtures.


We got this Italian - English translation shower curtain for a wedding present. 
Love how it works in this bathroom. 

We're pretty darn proud of our new guest bath.
Come visit, and you can use it!

Ta-ta for now!


  1. OMG, Jen and Matt. Will you please come remodel my master bath? It has the ever popular 80s dusty rose whirlpool tub which we NEVER use and matching sinks and toilet. The worst part of this whole scenario is that I chose the colors.
    LOVE your color palette.

    1. Aw, thanks! We'd totally help you remodel. But are you sure you want to part with dusty rose? Ha!

  2. The before and after picture really help me to comprehend the exact value of your remodel bathroom. I guess if you are taking of a bathroom in such meticulous way the what can be for whole home! I hope you are with great plumbing work cause if anything goes wrong with plumbing than it's not lesser than a nightmare. Anyway, great transformation!



Thanks for chiming in! I love to hear what you have to say.
