My Marble Bathroom...All of It!

Renovating my bathroom was probably the biggest project I did in this little condo. It's the only space where a room was taken down to the studs and rebuilt. I really wanted Kohler fixtures (even behind the wall) and carefully combed different sources for months trying to find the perfect shower valve or supply line for the sink. Once the work began, we found out that the drywall behind the builder's tile was plain, old drywall and the floor wasn't level. Thankfully, my tile guy was willing to do a little more work than expected, so we have waterproof backer board (I think that's what it's called) behind the tile and nice, level floors so all that marble basketweave is safe.

Unfortunately, I've only been able to share the bathroom in bits and pieces. At the time of the big reveal, I had a point and shoot camera. Even when I upgraded to a pretty good DSLR, I didn't have a great wide-angle lens. The pictures I had to share was a bit limited:

 Recently, I was able to borrow a wide-angle lens for my camera and finally got to take a nice picture of the bathroom. After many years, here it is:

I'm thinking of retaking all of my "house tour" photos now.

  2. Thank you so much for the comment!

    It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure I got the chandelier on ebay. I have seen the same one (and versions with more arms) in the back of magazines, but wanted to go through ebay since there would be a little buyer protection. :)

  3. Jeannine, your bathroom turned out amazing! I'm pinning your photos right now - we just bought a small bungalow with one bathroom, and I'd love to transform it into something like this! Where did you find the chandelier?

  4. Holy cow, your bathroom is BEAUTIFUL!! Seriously, my dream bathroom. I am definitely filing this away as inspiration when we redo our bathroom!

  5. Your bathroom is so dreamy! Out of curiosity, what lens did you use? It really makes a huge difference!

    What an incredible job you did! When it's time, you'll have no problems selling.

  7. What a difference! I love it even more with the wide angle. I have bathroom envy! Great job, J!

  8. Love this!! It's so serene!! Great job Jeannine!
