Anticipation! Nearly complete master bath remodel pics


Remember that song from the 70’s called “Anticipation”?  Carly Simon sang it.  Heinz used it for a ketchup commercial in the 80’s, I think.  They showed the ketchup barely moving out of the bottle, and you just knew it was going to be worth the wait.  With some extra crispy fries.  Yum.

Well, that’s what we’ve been dealing with.  Minus the ketchup.

Our master bath remodel is finished with the exception of our shower door splurge.  It will be another week and a half for that, but I couldn’t wait that long to share some pictures.

So without further ado, here’s what’s been happening here in the ridge.

 My favorite thing in there is the vanity we had made from our old dining room buffet.  I share the details about the conversion in this post.


The before pic of the buffet.  It was in our kitchen at Christmas because we don’t have an official dining room in this house.

 Le shower, waiting on the glass wall and door. And you can see the floor tiles.  We had them laid in a brick pattern.  They are American Olean Catarina.

 Le sink, and a few fancy soaps and lotions to trick us into thinking we’re somewhere special. 

I shared the facelift details of the mirror in this post.

And the details about the pulls are here.

The newly opened up shower end of the room.  Huge difference from before.

The before pic of the shower.  The plastic was there because there was some mold behind the walls.  The wall is gone now, except for a half wall of tile on the left.  And the wall on the right with the light switch on it was removed and moved out 1 foot.  It doesn’t sound like a lot, but it made a big difference.

Handheld shower.  Glossy white subway tile.

 Little glass accent tiles.  More glossy white subway tile.

Pebble shower floor.  Our contractor called these fruity pebbles. And lots more glossy white subway tile.

They do kinda resemble fruity pebbles, don’t they?  In milk, nonetheless!

I had this ladder in the garage and love the idea of using it for towel storage.  The Mr. is not too keen on the idea.  Not sure who will win this one.  The wall color is Benjamin Moore Wales Gray.

 Monogrammed linens, lavender, candle, towels.  I like the texture and rusticity of it all.  Is that even a word?

 I heart lavender.

The little luxuries.  Some of these soaps are from nice places we’ve been fortunate enough to stay at.  Santa brought me the lotions for Christmas.  🙂

Update: I recently added a rug for some additional color and to keep help keep the floor clean. 

FYI, here’s some info for the elements of the room:

Walls ~ Benjamin Moore Wales Gray #1585, eggshell finish

Trim ~ Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace, Satin Impervo waterborne

Ceiling ~ Benjamin Moore White Christmas, eggshell finish

Floor tile ~ American Olean Catarina Gray

Shower mosaic floor tile ~ white pebble mosaic tumble

Shower walls ~ Metro super white subway tiles

Accent tileIceland Mosaic

Sink ~ American Standard Morning vessel sink

Faucet ~ Delta Linden chrome

Toilet ~ Toto Drake elongated

Corner ShelvesWhite Carrara

I’m still looking for a small rug and will do some type of window treatment, but the room is complete except for that and the glass door and wall.   All that’s left is just a little more anticipation.  But it’s been worth the wait so far, and we’re on the home stretch.

You’ll have to excuse me now, ’cause I’m off to get some crispy fries and Heinz ketchup that I’m seriously craving after this post.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Love the ladder towel rack idea, it adds some old world charm.

    1. Thanks. It will hopefully be installed within the next week and I'll post some updated pictures. I probably should have waited to do a post of the finished bathroom, but I'm just too darned impatient for that. I like the ladder idea too. I've seen it in pictures and just happened to have an old ladder in the garage.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Gorgeous makeover!! Love the tile especially the pebble shower floor and love the ladder and display!

  15. Where did you get your sink? Do you remember the name? Totally love your sink and upcycled vanity. Thanks, Michelle

    1. Hi Michelle. The sink is from American Standard and is the Morning model. ~ Angie

  16. You did a beautiful job on the bathroom, all the personal touches are what makes it so perfect! I have a mirror that is gold like yours was, what kind of paint did you use? I am going to put mine in a bedroom. Thanks!

  17. Lovely. I have a dresser that I would like to use when I redo the bath. Alas, it is too long for the space.

  18. Hi Angie, this is such a beautiful bathroom makeover! I love everything about it, from the fruity pebbles 😉 to the pewter pulls, the half wall, the paint on the walls, the ladder, etc. You thought of every detail and it looks fantastic. Well done!


  19. So now that you've lived in the bathroom for almost 2 years, how is it holding up? I'm debating if I should install a countertop on mine or leave is as wood like you did. Have any major markups happened? For curling irons, are you concerned at all with the heat on the wood surface? I LOVE your look but want to make sure it can stand on it's own for a few years. Thanks!

  20. Do you have any updates on your bathroom? Would love to see what you ended up doing with the shower-curtain or glass door? Thank you for showing your details-I want to do the same in our house!!

  21. Hey Angie,
    We are beginning a bathroom reno. the tub if to be removed and a a shower in it's place. The shower will have a half wall and a glass door as yours does. Who did your glass for your shower? Was it custom?
