ABM Studio: Upstairs Bathroom (Before)


IMG_8393Hey friends! Ready to talk about bathrooms some more? It’s our favorite subject around here.

The new space has one and a half bathrooms. This one is located on the second floor at the top of the stairs. It had a little more space than the tiny half bath, and we’re excited to give it a makeover! Here’s the “before”:

IMG_8393Here’s the view looking in from the doorway. When we bought the house it had yellowed linoleum, fake tile panels on the walls and no light fixture. On the plus side, it has a large cabinet for storage and a big, beautiful window! IMG_8397Here’s a look from the other direction. You can see here that nothing is in the best condition, and the whole room is generally in need of a little refresher.

I’ve talked about this before, but that’s IDEAL for us. We were happy that the house hadn’t been newly updated, because the selling price didn’t reflect those updates. And we got to pick out everything from scratch! 0I0B9701Since this room has a little more floorspace we’re going to seize the opportunity to do something fun and experimental with tile.

Here are a few of our inspirations:Bathroom tile inspirationImages via Home Depot + Too Da Loos

We want to try making a pattern or shape from small tile (kinda like this?), and it is the most fun project ever! Can you guess what we chose? I promise to share updated photos soon.

We’ve got big ideas for this cute little bathroom. In addition to the new tile on the floors we picked out new tile for the walls and the shower area. We picked a new pedestal sink since the previous one was cracked. We’re excited to make a DIY shower curtain soon and some art for the walls.

Thanks so much for taking a look at our project house. I only have a few more rooms to share “before” photos of and then it’s time to share updates. We’re still planning projects for the bathrooms. Do you have any requests? xo. Elsie
