Master Bath Redesign - Who Can Pass Up A Party, Over At Nesting Place!

I've watched the "Price My Space Party" go on for nearly two days over at Nesting Place, and I finally started to feel like the girl who decided to stay home and watch a movie rather than get herself out to the party. So, here goes, I'm heading over to the party!

For this Master Bath Redesign I painted, changed all the light fixtures, added window treatments, put a Mirror Mate frame around the large plate glass mirror, brought in chairs that I refinished and finally added some favorite accessories. The room includes a few splurges as well as a few additions for nearly nothing. I love the result! The bath went from one that did not inspire to one I love being in. The second photo above shows the before.

Now to the money part!
Paint: $72. Mirror Mate Mirror Frame, Mediterra/Glazed Earth: $149 (with my designer discount). 2 vanity mirror light fixtures: $49 each, from Destination Lighting. 2 chandeliers, $99 each, from Lamps Plus. 2 Recessed Fixture Converter Kits, around $9 each from Home Depot. The Little Golden Bird, $6, from Calico Corners, got the little guy for a steal (regularly about $22) because he had a little damage which super glue fixed perfectly. Biggest score of the room is the wall mirror from Uttermost. Was originally priced at $379, but again, due to damage easily repaired with super glue, I paid only $59. Love it! The chairs I already owned, so with a yard of Thomas Paul fabric and paint I transformed them from blah to beautiful for about $30, for the pair. A splurge for the room was the tall vase and golden grasses for the niche, they were perfect, so worth it I think. Both from Crate & Barrel, were just under $100. Finally a basket for towels from Target was on sale for $9 and the grass roman shades were $350 for both windows...again, with my discount.

This brings the grand total to $1089. Not inexpensive, but when you consider what is spent on bath remodels, it's a bargain!


  1. Gorgeous! I'm also envious of the fact you can fit chairs into your bathroom. Come to think of it, I'm envious of the entire bathroom. :)

  2. It is absolutely Beautiful!! I am so jelous!! =)

  3. It's a beautiful redesign! Doesn't it just make you feel good when you walk in there every morning?

  4. Stunning! I love absolutely everything about it!

  5. Your bathroom is gorgeous! I just love that big mirror you used. Realy glamorous and dramatic.

  6. This looks like much more than a bathroom - It's a place to escape to. Well Done!

  7. The Mirror Mate looks great. I have seen those and wondered if they were easy to install. Yours looks really good!

  8. janell you know I love this room! then to find out it cost less than $1200 WOW! and about my kitchen, well I'm scared to post the picture! I will tonight so you can see the color. I'm starting on the cabinets and trim this weekend.

  9. Janell, it's lovely! I'm happy for you that you created such lovely space that you enjoy so much more.
    You are so talented!


  10. Janell, I'm in the process of remodeling my master bath and am having trouble finding the perfect bathtub to recline in, relax, and read a book. It appears that yours has grab bars and arm rests as well as a nice reclining back. Did you pick it out or was it in the house when you bought it? Do you know the specs for it?

  11. Hi Lynn, the tub was already in place, but it is by Lasco. Here is a link: http://www.lascobathware.com/browse.pl?line=1&model=4572531&series=3

    This tub is virtually the same, but ours does not have jets. I didn't see our exact version, but I hope this helps. I do like it as it is very deep and like the slant at the back. GOOD LUCK on your project! Janell

  12. Hello Janell - your bathroom is absolutely gorgeous! Nice job on everything, and some great deals too. That mirror is my fave! Thank you for sharing.
