Bathroom mini makeover

I am happy to say that I have finished the 3/4 bathroom attached to my craft room.  It has only taken me about 2 years to get started on it.  This bathroom is very small and was very difficult to get good pictures.

And of course I forgot to take any before pictures.  I need to remember next time I do a project.  The granite counter top was already there.  I painted the vanity, painted the trim around the mirror, textured the walls and painted the walls a soft yellow.

I added some beadboard wallpaper on the side of the vanity to tie in with the beadboard wallpaper in my craft room.  It looks like the real thing and is much easier to install.  The only downfall is that it is easily dented so you have to be careful with setting furniture near it.

I had to retexture the walls since when the previous owners replaced the counter top and light fixture the walls were not patched correctly.  So I decided to buy some joint compound and slap it on the walls.  Now the walls have a hand troweled look.  It would look great with a darker color rubbed on but I wanted to keep this room more light since it is small.

The mirror frame was a dark brown with some gold highlights.  I thought it would like better if it matched the cabinet.  I painted it the white color, antiqued it and painted the carved area and inside area brown.

I would love to gut the shower and install new tile but I don't think I want to waste my time and money right now.  The shower tiles are white with a few accent tiles that look they are from the 80's (blue and mauve).  For now I hung a shower curtain to cover the ugliness.  I know that it is hard to see the whole thing with the door in the way but if I stand inside with the door shut there is no room to take a picture.  Maybe I should have taken the picture before I put the door back on.  I had to take it off in order to paint the trim white in the bathroom.

Now I just need to get the rest of my craft room in order.  I am still trying to figure out the furniture arrangement.
