What? Those photos don't look like a master bath to you? They look like a room that is smaller than most master closets? Why, I was just thinking the same thing!
Well, since it's what I've got (no plans to knock out the back wall of the house, unfortunately), my goal is to take it out of the 80's, brighten it up, and bring it to the cottage-y, vintage vibe that I'm going for throughout the house. We've sort of been putting it off because we want to replace the shower with a bathtub, which is beyond our meager remoldeling abilities. The time has come & we are planning on getting estimates for the tub! I can't do exactly what I'd dream of doing, due to space & budget constraints, but this is the general vibe that I'm going for:
The paint is going to be the same as what is in our bedroom:
Behr's "Rejuvinate"on the walls & "Bridal Veil" trim.
We've already purchased a light fixture that is very similar to this:

And, we also have matching hardware such as towel bars, toilet paper holder, etc.
The tub will most likely be a fiberglass shower/tub insert (the white subway tile will have to wait until the dream house) & I like this shower curtain from Kohls:
We need to replace the vanity cabinet. I'd love to have a pedastal sink, but we have far too much junk that needs to be out of sight. This one at the Home Depot is nice, though I'd prefer a white counter:
My real dilemma is about the wall 'o mirror that currently exists & the medicine cabinet. Obviously, both have to go. The question is, do I keep the medicine cabinet where it is? If not, do we drywall over that space? Or, take out the cabinet & put in shallow shelves in the little space in the wall that remains? If we do not put a medicine cabinet in that space, we will definitely put one over the sink. I quite like this one from the Home Depot:
Also, I'm not really sure what to put above the toilet. A towel bar? We will already have one on the wall opposite the toilet, but another might not be a bad idea. I'd love to have someplace to put my makeup that is easily accessible, but not unsightly.
As you can see, I'm really open to & looking for ideas!!! Any suggestions that you have would be welcome!!
