Today I’m sharing with you a bathroom remodel!! This guest bathroom is actually at my Parents’ house… they did all of the work themselves.
Unfortunately I do not have a “Before” photo… but let me describe what it looked like before:
builder grade oak cabinet, white tile counter top, and for the floors the cheapest tile you could get.
Here’s the after!

Isn’t it beautiful??
I love the walls… they are actually wallpapered! You can kind of tell in the pictures that the wallpaper has a little shine on it… so you when you walk through the bathroom the light bounces off and shimmers!
Look at the beautiful floors! They are calacatta marble! My parents did all of the work themselves.. including cutting and laying the tile. Don’t you just love the herringbone pattern they laid the tile in??
Now this bathroom is a Jack and Jill bathroom. What they noticed though was that when you opened the doors they would swing way out into the room and take up a bunch of space. So… they made their own doors. They cut a door down the middle and made a little double door. Isn’t that a great idea? It is space-saving and it is super cute!

Closed double door… how cute is the little double doors closed? I like the grey-blue on the doors too!
One last look… isn’t this bathroom so cute?? (The bathroom does have a toilet and a full shower/bathtub too but I don’t have pictures of them).
They saved money on this project several ways: One, they did all of their own tile work. That saves the most amount of money. For the pieces from RH, they would scour the RH outlet store once a week when they’d drive by. You can sometimes pick up pieces for 25-30% of their original price. Most of the time though it’s about 50% off. They hung their own wallpaper too!
