You. guys. If there was one room that needed a makeover most, it was our master bathroom. For the past couple of months we’ve been chunking away at this master bathroom and it’s finally d-o-n-e. And… it’s everything! This DIY Master Bathroom Makeover makes me so happy. If you saw the before pictures of this dark and dingy space with ugly floral wallpaper then you know just how BIG this transformation is.

DIY Master Bathroom Makeover
Remember, it all started with this tile selection from Floor & Decor. I had major heart eyes for those marble rounds. Remember, we did marble herringbone for our kitchen backsplash so I thought this would really tie in nicely.
The number one mission was to open up our shower. We knew that would the game changer. We knocked out the shower enclosure to open up the whole wall. We also cut the top portion of this half wall next to the vanity so we could get a better view of all that pretty tile!
And can we just have a moment for this large space that pulling down that wall revealed? The shower is the exact same size, yet it looks ten times bigger now.
The minute our tile guy started putting the tile I up, I literally got the giggles. I was so excited. I had made several trips to Floor & Decor to peek at tile but it wasn’t until I sat down with a designer at Floor & Decor that I finally settled on a combo and it was about this moment that I realized that my tile selection was on point!
As the tile was going up I had already set my mind on white grout but when I saw the dark spacing between the tile, I considered switching to a gray grout. For just a minute. Then, I stuck with my original plan and I’m so glad I did.
The white grout is so clean and fresh looking and with such a small space, brighter is better! And the round marble is everything, isn’t it?
After the shower was complete, we had to do away with the flower power wallpaper. We decided to hire the wallpaper removal job out because it was way too much work for us to tackle. I love DIY but sometimes you have to weigh the pros and cons. Days of wallpaper removal with two small kids in the middle of summer was a definitely no thanks for us. Ya know?
I wanted a really calm, retreat-like space. We painted the walls Ben Moore’s Oyster Shell which is a very light gray that has a hint of blue/green to it. It’s perfect for a coastal feel while still keeping the bathroom nice and bright.
The bathroom makeover continued with the vanities. We had a pinkish oak cabinetry that we painted gray (same as in our kitchen). The major game changer for the vanity was the re-glazing of the countertops (and tub).
The countertops were cultured marble which I realllyyyy did not like. We had them reglazed to a bright white. We also changed out the faucets and vanity lighting.
We kept the original mirrors but customized them by framing them out.
It’s so bright and clean in here now that I almost can’t believe this is the same space.
So glad that the last bathroom makeover in the MHB Florida House is in the books.
