So I mentioned last week that one of my favorite things about Christmas this year was the bathroom remodel that we gave my mom for her gift.
The bathroom turned out even more beautiful than I possibly imagined. And for once, one of our projects turned out just as easy as it was supposed to. We painted the room while we were home for Thanksgiving, (the paint job was a belated Mother’s Day gift), so everything else only took a day, and one trip to Lowes & one trip to Home Depot to finish.
This is a quick glance at what we started with. Granted, the spackle wasn’t there when mom bought her house. We did that before we painted in November. Nothing was in bad shape, it just needed some updating.
The finished bathroom turned out exactly how I hoped. Even before we finished it, I couldn’t help but post this photo on Instagram.
My favorite addition to the bathroom was the framed watercolors. Those were free printables from Young House Love that Sherry & Clara painted in honor of an aunt that had passed away. I loved incorporating those into the room. Mother-daughter art work for a gift to a mother from her daughter. They were framed with Ribba frames from Ikea. Graham even matted them himself.
The most expensive change we made was the countertop, which was annoying. We had planned to order a laminate countertop from Lowe’s like the one we ordered for our bathroom remodel. In Arkansas, the countertop cost us about $90. The Lowe’s here wanted to charge us $221. RIDICULOUS. So, we bought the basic white one from Home Depot.
