Half Bath Before & After

I have been hesitant to share with you some of the rooms in our house because in my mind they are not “finished.” I decided to get over this notion, and share with you the progress we have made so far. This is a photo of our half bathroom that Josh took before we bought the house.  

We replaced everything but the tile floor. The vanity, faucet, mirror, light fixture, and toilet were all from Lowes. (Thanks to our friend Matt for helping install everything!)

I bought this small table at a garage sale for $4. With a quick coat of spray paint, it fits perfectly in the new bathroom.

The yellow urn only set me back a quarter. I still haven’t figured out what I want to put in there. Any suggestions?

I found the quirky embroidery at Goodwill and the towel bar was a clearance bargain from Target.

I had a difficult time trying to capture the whole makeover in such a tight space. (This is yet another reason why I think I need to invest in a wide angle lens) Hopefully you still get the gist of the transformation. 

Just in case you were wondering what I was wearing yesterday, here is a cheesy photo of me in the mirror.
