Master Bathroom Makeover

We have a very small master bathroom.  Split level homes are not known for having large bedrooms or bathrooms.  It was sunshine yellow when we moved in.

Yellow BathroomWe took down the wall mirror and put up a white mirrored medicine chest.  We needed the storage badly in this small bath.


We tried painting it sea foam green and it was still not what we wanted.  I wanted a slight coastal feel.  Than I decided to try gray.  I painted the builder grade cabinet dark gray and the walls light gray.  The gray had purple tones and looked funny from the brown master bedroom. My husband tiled the floors with a pretty gray tile.  Excuse the Mess in the during picture.

American Walnut & Rosewood Stain 298

By this time my husband was telling me to just leave it and live with it.  I am too stubborn to live with something I don’t love.  We’re trying to sell the house too which is crazy that I painted it another time. 

This time I painted the walls Benjamin Moore Seapearl and I painted the vanity Fieldstone by Benjamin Moore.  We put bead board on the long wall opposite the vanity.  I put four hooks for hanging towels.

I filled this small basket with washcloths.

For the toothbrush holder I got a small hurricane candle holder for $1 at Wal-Mart and put some decorative rocks in it.  I love milk glass and found this great soap dispenser at Home Goods.

I want to put a small picture in there and change the blinds to curtains.  But at last I finally LOVE IT!  It sure took me a long time to get here.

this looks great!! i love the paint color and the beadboard adds so much. you are so right to keep at it until you get the paint color right - i tested over 15 colors before i found the tone i wanted to cover my yellow walls. it turned out that the one i picked was also the same as my old trim color that i wasn't changing. weird!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thanks for sharing your bathroom - you did a great job!!!

I've painted my small bath 4 times now and I am still not happy with it. I like how you used muted colors but everything is not matchy white. I think I am going to try repainting my vanity now.


Nice update! I love beadboard in a bathroom!

I'm so glad you left a comment or I might not have found you! I've been here before and must not have bookmarked it. Shame on me. The transformation in your bathroom is divine! I love the colors you chose! Well done!

Great job on the bathroom! The colors you finally chose are just perfect! It's very coastal, warm and cozy looking. I'm slowly incorporating soft grays into my 'beach house' and am very happy with it. And don't get me started on beadboard. It's heaven on earth! lol!
