Thoughts for Thursday: Master Bath Before & After

Happy Thursday, friends! 

I wanted to share a little before and after of our master bathroom with y'all today. As y'all know, we recently moved and decided to go ahead and remodel our master bathroom. It was completely fine to begin with, but just simply not our taste. And, we figured we might as well go ahead and just bite the bullet and do it...or we would probably put it off for years. 

We had a complete nightmare of a contractor and this project took six whole weeks from demo day to completion day, but I can admit now after almost a full week of contractors being out of my house, that it was all worth it. 

Here's the before picture, taken from the real estate listing: 

And here's the after, taken the day they finished: 

We used our contractor for everything except the painting, shower glass and crown moulding. Our personal painter painted the walls, trim and cabinets; a local company did the shower glass (we have used them before and loved them); and our personal carpenter added crown moulding in the room (which unfortunately I couldn't fit into my lens). 

And even though the contractors put us through complete hell, we are very happy with the end result. The pictures don't do it justice, but it most definitely looks bigger and brighter in person. (I just don't have that fancy photographer lens that makes it look bigger! Ha!) 


  • Wall paint color: Behr Gentle Rain
  • Trim and cabinet paint color: Sherwin William Superwhite
