Before & After: Janelle's Bathroom

This before & after is long overdue! I helped my BFF Janelle redo her bathroom in a marathon DIY weekend, and it turned out awesome.

It's a not a huge space by any means, so we weren't able to reconfigure the layout at all. Basically, the bathroom needed a facelift, along with more storage. Everything but the toilet and shower were replaced. The shower is tiled in a pale yellow, and while we weren't crazy about the color, we weren't ready to redo it, so we decided to run with it. In the end, it inspired our color palette of yellow & gray, and the tile ended up complementing instead of clashing. I'm always inclined to work with you have if possible, and in this case it was a success!

Here's a peek at our Pinterest board, where we collaborated on our inspiration.

And here's the before photos...

And the beautiful white marble that took it's place! The kitties approve.

And now, the amazing after!

Can you even believe the difference? The bathroom that was once bland and dreary is now chic and soothing. I'm so happy with the way it turned out, and it was such a fun project to work on with my dear friend.

Gorgeous! I love the vanity and the shower curtain best! I was going to ask where you got the shower curtain.... love the idea of turning a tablecloth into the curtain.

This is one heck of renovation job and what an amazing transformation. Your new bathroom looks magnificent. I finished a bathroom makeover over the holidays but my remodeling was not as extensive as yours. It really feels great when you take a step and watch your new bathroom. After seeing the pictures above, I am really jealous :)

This is amazing!! I am gathering ideas for redoing my guest bathroom and am loving the grey/yellow. Might I ask what color/brand of paint you used? It's a lovely color. You are incredibly talented!
