Master Bath Redo

It has been done for some time, but I haven't yet posted on the redo of our master bath.
On the 3 walls of this bathroom that had the tile (halfway up) we took it all down to the studs.
It didn't take much as it is only 4 foot by 5 foot.

I knew I wanted some floating shelves and so we measured where we wanted them and then hubby reinforced between the studs where they would be so that when the shelves were attached it wouldn't just be to sheetrock.

Under that new piece of sheetrock above on the left he also reinforced.  I just forgot to take a picture beforehand.

Getting closer, with the sheetrock up and some mudding done.


  • Kept the toilet.
  • Changed out the recessed medicine cabinet and put up the oval mirror.
  • Changed the light fixture--that was an ordeal.  Because of the box placement there were a couple options we couldn't use, but we didn't know that until it was all said and done or we could've moved the electrical box as we were redoing walls.  Oh well.....
  • Pedestal sink, also a major ordeal and hubby absolutely hates.  With such a small space between the toilet and wall (the previous vanity was 18" wide) we didn't have much choice in the matter unless hubby custom made something, but time was a factor with other projects to complete.
  • Toilet holder, which all the kids think is totally cool.
  • 3 floating shelves custom made by hubby.  LOVE these! and have plans for more in the new house.
  • Beadboard and moldings along the 3 walls we demo'ed. 

Here is the demo of this bathroom, courtesy of my little kids.

Same tile in this bath as we did in the back entry---it's one continuous floor.
And taken before we got up all the door moldings and fixed the kitchen paint.

Friday Finds

Over the last week or two I have found some good bargains.  I've also passed on some good bargains, somewhat regrettably, but I'll be O.K.  If they had been FREE I would've snatched them up for sure.  But I am trying to curb the "wants" since we still are trying to move and I don't know what I will be doing with everything for sure.

Mission style side table or nightstand--$14.99

Small side table--$3.74.  Daughter #3 wants this in her new room.

I plan on beefing up the bottom shelf/base, adding legs and painting a fun color.
Love the detailing on the side.

Grocery bag worth of fabric for $2.99

  • 2 yds. blue cotton print
  • 4 yds. of brown/orange knit fabric
  • 2+ yds. of white upholstery weight fabric--I may dye this down the road
  • 1+ yd. of heavy denim
  • 3 yds. of floral print
  • 6 yds. of chambray linen-ish fabric

4 blue canning jars for 75 cents each.  One was marked $4.99 but they let me have it for the lower price of $.99/ea before the 25% discount because the other 3 were marked lower.  Yipee!!  Daughter #3 went with me last time and spotted a small blue jar that we only paid  $.51 for.  Good eye, kiddo!!

I made these up with some Dollar Tree flowers and have used them as a centerpiece on our table when we have a house showing.  

Trio of pretty green candle holders for $1.49.

Storage ottoman for $3.74 which may not even need anything at all done to it.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!  Hope it is a good one.
