Makeover Monday - Master Bathroom

So, this post was all written and ready to go a month ago...I went in to post it one morning at work and somehow it got deleted and disappeared. I was NOT happy since I had spent quite a bit of time uploading pics and commenting. Anyways, here is our almost finished master bath. Enjoy!

The inspiration that I found on Pinterest
Before Pictures

Huge double sink vanity with a ton of crap essentials in the middle

Big ugly mirror

Outdated light fixtures and a lovely floral wall paper border at the ceiling. Also note the white vinyl flooring

More staining
We opted to lay down a heating pad under our tile so our feet can be toasty in the winter

Almost finished product:

Bathtub area (pics to hang on the wall got completed this past weekend - post to come)
Window looking into the backyard
The door is currently off, it needs to be stained. This why the project is not complete yet. Hopefully get that tackled soon!

I spray painted all of the towel racks/bars/rings and toilet paper holder a matte black color. I like the way they look and   it saved quite a bit of money! 
View of the vanity - new lights and mirrors. The original plan to construct a frame to go around the existing mirror proved to be a little expensive and very time consuming. My husband is very busy in the spring/summer. We bought the mirrors at Home Depot for about $50 each and sold the old mirror on Craigslist for like $25. Not too bad of a trade-off. My husband and I built the center shelving unit. I really like the way it turned out and that our clutter is more contained in the cute baskets I got at Target. We also swapped out the cabinet hardware with a chrome handle instead of the bronze. Love the look!

 Overall, I'm so happy with the way everything turned out. We totally revamped our bathroom on a pretty reasonable budget. The most expensive thing was the decision to get the heated flooring. I think we'll be happy when December/January rolls around! The most time consuming thing was staining all of the cabinets. I LOVE the way they turned out, but it was quite a bit of work. The product I used has been used in our house before and I hate working with it, but the end result is always worth it!
