Ok, quick popping in today to share the master bath and bedroom makeover over at my parent’s new beach condo. If you don’t know what I’m talking about check out this post here for all the details and let’s continue the tour.
Here’s the before – and another ceiling fan that bit the dust :)
I’ll try to keep this short. Mainly because we are in the last weeks of school here, and I’m actually dashing this off in the carpool line at school – 7 more pickups left, not that I’m counting.
We didn’t swap much in this room besides bedding and paint, but wow what a huge difference that makes! The furniture in here is kind of enormous and ornate, not really my mom’s style, but we couldn’t talk my Dad into moving this furniture out of there since it weighs a gazillion pounds. We did at least get rid of the enormous dresser, because it was just way too much furniture in one room.
Ideally we wanted to paint the bed all white to downplay some of the more ornate detailing but we ran out of time. So, for now we gave the nightstands a little makeover to break up the matchy-matchiness of this set. Here’s the before –
And After –
New lamps brighten it up in here and help with a more casual vibe.
On to their little master bathroom area, before –
And after –
Again crazy what a difference a lighter paint color can make, also the walls were all previously painted in a semi gloss finish which really highlighted every imperfection, switching to more of a matte finish was key too.
We also painted the mirror and swapped the light fixtures. We didn’t have a lot of options as far as lights went, because there was a huge hole in the wall behind the existing one we had to cover up. Thankfully, this one fit perfectly.
Putting up a pretty shower curtain for a pop of color and losing the glass door was our next move. Removing a shower door is so easy – you basically need a screwdriver to undo a few screws and that’s it. Here’s the before of the door/shower curtain combo, not sure why they had both?
And after –
Oh and we swapped out the dated medicine cabinet for this pretty mirror.
Tada! Quick and easy transformation, and my mom is already sleeping better in here…
We will not talk about how the first night we were down here she took a sleeping pill (she never sleeps well away from my Dad) and somehow sleep-ate an entire bag of candy orange slices in the middle of the night unbeknownst to her…
nor will we mention how she woke up covered in sugar with a previously mentioned candy orange slice stuck to her cheek.
Me being covered in paint and her being covered in sugar, we were a hot mess that morning.
BUT that definitely didn’t happen…just between us, love you mom! :)
Stay tuned for next week, I’m sharing my favorite part of the whole tour – the kitchen!! Don’t forget to check out their living room post from last week if you missed it!
