Master Bath Makeover Reveal

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day with your families.
The long awaited Master Bath Makeover is complete. It's been in the back of my mind for quite sometime to tackle the ceilings in our home. The whole process started in January. You can see where it began and the process I went through HERE. Wow - Wow - and Double WOW!  We've come a long way from those pictures. I've truly forgotten how chaotic it was. 
The process began
with scrapping the popcorn off the ceilings. Everything was covered with heavy duty plastic from the sides of the walls to the floors. It was messy, but I have to say I enjoyed the process. The crown molding had to be readjusted and put back nice and tight to the ceilings. I then put 2 coats of polyurethane on every  piece of wood with a light sanding in between. I carried the paint color in from the master bedroom. Eight years ago August I had major water damage and had to have the vanity replaced. Due to the length, I had it custom made to fit the length and made it 35 1/2" tall instead of the normal height 31".  The light fixtures were new at that time purchased from Home Depot as well as the faucets.
Now, came the truly fun part, accessorizing the room. Shopping my home for the perfect pieces of blue and white with a few touches of silver.


The expanse of the garden tub had always been a challenge for me to find just the right decor. Quite a while back shopping at Nell Hill's these gorgeous ginger jars kept showing up at every turn. I so wanted to incorporate them some where in my home. Before I left the store a light bulb went off in my head, they would be perfect around the garden tub.


The silver urn was a purchase almost 20+ years ago and has been used in many ways. While shopping the house it dawned me it would make the perfect vessel for the orchid plant.
I love the clean look of the ceiling now, no more popcorn!!!  I purchased the new lighting fixture after deciding to take the ceiling fan down. The ceiling fan felt like a weight hanging over my head each time I entered the room.
A faux maidenhair fern for a bit of green in a blue vase for one side of the vanity.
I originally had a clock hanging in between the mirrors. Wanting a change I added the blue and white plates.

I'm a bit of a romantic and love chandeliers, lets face it, I love lighting! The chandelier was purchased about 8 to 9 years ago, Originally the bulbs were covered with shades. With the concentrator running non stop they got really dusty, and had to be cleaned all the time. Once it was hung I chose not to use the shades, I am loving the change.
The door leads out to where the hot tub once sat. Over the course of time I had stained the door black. It felt too heavy and seemed to close in this area of the bathroom. I painted it the same color as the ceiling, Swan White. It made a huge difference in the way the room feels. As you can see the shower still has just a Plain Jane shower curtain. I was determined to find just the right one before sharing with all of you, Obviously the "right one" hasn't shown up yet. That will be a share when I do.
If you've looked back through the post I shared the changes happening around here,  you'll recall there was a cabinet hanging here on the wall. I felt it was too heavy looking and really enclosed the water closet area. I had it moved, filled the holes and voile' not so heavy an area. I'm still looking for a picture or something to hang on this small wall. I also chose not to put back the TT holder, instead I'm using a basket on the back of the toilet.
This is where the cabinet was moved to, the perfect fit.
Looking out into the master. 
I'm still looking for a picture or two for the wall to the right of the mirror. I'm so pleased with the feel of the room and how it's come together.

Thanks so much for being so patient with me getting the room ready to share of the Master Bath Makeover Reveal. I've said it many times all the work was worth it, I'm still enjoying the process. There has been so much going on around here, tons of projects to share with all of you, so readers please join me in the up coming posts for those projects. Please let me know what you think of the Master Bath Makeover.
Fondly ~ Lynne ~

Hi Lynne! Oh, I just can't believe how hard you've worked removing the popcorn from your ceiling. What a job, but you ceilings look wonderful. I love your bathroom with your blue and white accents! I love a garden tub and wish I had one in this house. sob... Those ginger jars are so pretty! You can pat your tiny self on the back now! ;) Happy Mother's Day, sweet one.
Blessings,
Shelia ;)

Hi Sweet Shelia, It was a lot of work, but so much fun. The garden tub is a jacuzzi that gets quite a work out at the end of the day. Sure helps the sore muscles. fondly ~ Lynne~

Oh Lynne, you KNOW I love every bit of your BLUE AND WHITE bathroom!!!!!!!!!! The jars are FABULOUS and I am wondering if that is a Ralph Lauren lamp? Good idea to move the cabinet and remove the ceiling fan. Everything looks fabulous!!!! I would LOVE to have jets in our tub!!!

Thanks Shirley, it has been a labor of love. The ginger jars are a treasure and inexpensive for their size. fondly ~Lynne~

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Thanks Pinky, the jars are perfect for the area. They are large in size and inexpensive to boot ! :-) The lamp came from Boxwoods a couple of years ago, I don't believe it's a Ralph Lauren, I have a couple of them will share soon. fondly ~ Lynne ~

Turned out great mom!

Rue said...

It turned out beautiful, Lynne! I can't imagine scraping off all the ceilings, but I would probably find it relaxing too. I'm working on my bathroom too :)
