guest bathroom | remodel

more than a year ago, i had posted on what i had wanted my guest bathroom to look like once i got around to doing it. well, "getting around" is finally here and the final touch was completed this past weekend!

here is another look at the before:

and here are the before and after shots:

| vanity details |

| paint, mirror and lighting fixture |

to begin with i wanted a new paint color in the bathroom since it had a yellowish hue, so i repainted the bathroom a light powder blue gray as well as changing the molding and door to a plain white. 

i removed the old "builders" mirror and light fixture and installed the mirror and the light fixture. one awesome thing about the mirror is that it has a gold/silver reflection which is great since i have both metals in the bathroom :)

 gold/silver mirror | $39 | garden ridge
bathroom lighting fixture | $59 | home depot

| towel hook, towel, and decor |

i had had my eyes on this gold owl towel hook so when i went to go pick it up, my hubby actually picked out the ceramic container  piece and while it doesn't really serve any functionality, it went really well with the decor! (plus that was totally awesome that he picked it out!). the artifical flower and vase is from hobby lobby (remember to only buy their flowers when they have 50% off...which is almost twice a month!)

| vanity cabinets |

the vanity cabinets were originally an off-white, but i thought that it washed out the bathroom too much so i wanted to create some contrast, so with the help of my mom we painted the cabinets a mid-toned gray and added new hardware. (note: josh picked out the door knobs too!)

door knobs | $10/knob | athropologie
rug | $20 | homegoods

| towels and hooks |

 i loved the look of hooks for towels (just like the owl hook) and i couldn't pass up turquoise anything (its my favorite color). since i had picked out almost everything in the bathroom, i let josh pick out the towels, and  they are the same design as the hand towel from the vanity.

white chevron bath towel | $14.99 | world market
white chevron hand towel | $9.99 | world market

| toilet details |

| photo wall |

so recently, i have become obsessed with anna rifle bond art and since the living room was starting to become a little too girly, i decided i would put some of her art in the bathroom. i was originally going to repaint them, but her art is so beautiful, i decided i wanted the real thing. plus, when i saw these frames at target as part of their new "threshold" line, i knew it would go perfect with the prints.

floral prints | $18/set of 8 | rifle paper company
4x6 matted wooden picture frame | $13.59/frame | target

| shelf and decor |

so after i put up the frame, i thought it looked a little empty, so i decided to add a shelf with a few decor items. the shelf was something i had had before and just painted it white. the jar is also part of the target threshold collection and the shells are from our honeymoon that we picked up on the beach in cabo. the vase  i found at a thrift store and painted old and the blue ceramic piece is also from mexico when we were on out honeymoon.

aqua glass jar | $3.99 | target

| light plates |

these were just left over from our old house and thought i would put them to good use :)

| floors |

so after everything was almost done, i realized that none of it was going to look as good as it should, unless i did something to brighten up the floors. so after perusing pinterest, i saw a how-to on updating the grout. it only took me about 2 hours since i had to do two coats, but it was totally worth it because when my husband  got home, he thought i had replaced the floor!

wall collage

lately, with decor i have been really focused on the living room. not so much on the dining room. but since i am 90% done with the living room, i decided to work on the empty wall in our dining room. over the past few months, i have been slowly gathering different pieces and ideas for my "wall collage", below is the finished result (super excited!) and where everything is from.

| mirrors |
i got these gems from a couple of different stores on etsy selling vintage items, unfortunately, these were the only ones the stores had so i can't provide a link to purchase. 
(also, all the frames i got from thrifting at local stores)

| "nothing worth sharing" print |
i got inspiration from a few weddings i have come across where a couple had this quote at their reception, so i decided to make my own print

| beach photo |
this was josh and i's favorite picture from the wedding. the wonderful photographers, the minnericks, i have to thank for this. i got this printed on a 11" x 14" standout from whcc

| "don't do nothing" print |
again, i found this quote on the internet and made a print. its actually supposed to say "don't do nothing because you can't do everything. do something. anything" but i didn't do a good enough proof before printing so i will need to redo this one. also, this quote is in relation to being a vegan, but i still though it was inspirational to other things :)

| "hola" sign |
 i had seen the "hello" version of this all over pinterest, but i wanted "hola" instead, gotta represent the fernandez name, right? ;) the etsy owner was great and didn't mind doing a custom sign and it was barely any more than his standard "hello" AND you can get it any almost any color!

| kate spade print |
i actually got this randomly with a kate spade purchase and thought it was cute so i framed it :)

| peony print |
i came across this online when i was searching for peony prints (i wanted a peony art piece of some kind since those were our wedding flowers) and found this and just printed it out and framed it.

| mexico postcard |
this was our save the date from our wedding and i thought it went well with the other colors.

| "i vow" standout |
i found the inspiration for this from pinterest and just remade it in photoshop and had it printed on a 12" x 18" standout from whcc 

| josh's wedding vows |
these are the actually written vows that josh wrote out on our wedding day. unfortunately, i don't have any written vows since i ran out of time and "winged it". oops :)

| "love" photography print |
i got inspiration from a store on etsy, while i was looking for a photo camera print, but it wasn't quite what i wanted so i made my own and printed it out.

happy thursday!
