After finishing up the detailing on my bathroom vanity, it was time to move to the demo phase of the project! My custom vanity top arrived last week and looks perfect. I am so happy I decided to spend the extra money to get exactly what I wanted. With how nice the vanity top looked, we realized it would be smarter to work tops down in the bathroom, instead of installing the beautiful new pieces and then working over them, so the order of operation changed slightly!
We recently finished the construction of my bathroom vanity. It turned out so pretty and I am excited to keep moving forward with the project. The next step with the vanity was to stain and varnish the wood.
The vanity is made of oak, and the raw wood has such a light, pretty look. I wanted to keep this light look while still protecting the wood from the water and humidity in the bathroom. This meant finding the right stain and varnish combination to achieve my desired look.
As a part of my bathroom remodel, I wanted new accessories to make the space feel refreshed. The color palette for my old bathroom was purples and whites, and I was ready for something new. The new look for my bathroom is mostly white and natural wood, so I wanted to play up the bright palette with a pop of accent color.
Everything I got was pretty affordable and sits together so well! Keep reading to shop my style!
Over the last few weeks, I have been making progress on my bathroom remodel. The biggest part of the remodel is building the custom vanity, and then designing the bathroom around that. I always like to start a project and then make selections on colors/accessories once I can begin to see things together in person.
We have officially kicked off the bathroom remodel! When I first bought my house, I did a little freshening up of my bathroom, but the time has come for a bigger overhaul. The parts of the bathroom that really need to be redone are the vanity, mirror, and floor.
The vanity and mirror were there when I bought my house and have seen better days. The mirror is made out of laminate particle board, which just doesn’t wear well in a bathroom. I suspect the vanity is original to the house and the wood is pretty gross and the top is a yellowed stone. I put in a new floor the first time I did my bathroom, but I just went with a basic tan tile. It’s not the worst look, but I would like something a little nicer and updated.
One of the next projects on my home remodel bucket list is my bathroom. I already did a pretty extensive remodel before I moved into my house by refinishing the tile from yellow to white. (You can read about that project here!)
I also put a new floor down and painted the walls. But, I’ve never really loved my bathroom counter or vanity. The stone top is stained in a few places and has yellowed. The vanity is old and just not great. My goal for the project is to replace the vanity and the top to make the bathroom feel new and updated. Depending on how that project goes, I may choose to redo the floors as well, because they are a little plain jane.
