Last Minute Bathroom Redo

You may have seen a couple weeks ago a picture I posted on Instagram of my guest bathroom looking like this...
My husband up and decided to tackle a bathroom renovation just a week before my due date!  I claimed he was nesting more then I was.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any before pictures because Ryan started on this little project without me knowing about it. Ha!  But this "during" shot gives you an idea of what we started with.  We were both tired of the oak colored cabinets and the extra large mirror.
So Ryan bought a power sander and went to town.  

After sanding, he slapped a few coats of the darkest stain he could find from Lowes and then finished it off with some polyurethane.  He also replaced the hardware with the same ones we have in the kitchen but silver instead of oil rubbed bronze.

Instead of replacing the mirror, we decided to try and frame it in to make it seem more finished looking.  So Ryan headed back to Lowes to grab some wood, then cut and stained it.  I helped him glue it to the mirror, and he put some screws on top to fully secure it to the wall.

The finished product and I LOVE it!!  It makes such a difference.

More of a straight on view from the door and a Yogi photo bomb.

Now that this project's finally finished all we need is for Maggie to finally get here to enjoy her new bathroom!  Sometime down the road we plan to do this exact some thing to our master bathroom but I think we might be pushing our luck starting that now since I'm 5 days overdue...


  1. Looks awesome! Love that Ryan just started working on the project lol, he did a great job.

  2. Looks great! Wow I bet you are starting to feel miserable!

  3. Love the look! I think the framed in mirror makes a world of difference.

  4. What a great redo!!! It looks amazing!

  5. Oh my gosh, it looks great! You are lucky to have a husband that is A) really good at DIY projects, and B) finishes projects really quickly!


I'd love to hear from you!
