Master Bathroom {pedestal tub, white subway tile, carrera}



Our master bathroom is finally done!!  It was our most complicated DIY project to date, just because we had to move/add some plumbing.  We have never attempted that before.  It was extremely hard to get a before picture of the bathroom because it was 2 small tight spaces.  One was a walkthrough vanity area and the other was the toilet, sink and stall shower.
blue toilet, 80's decor, small, dark, awkward...

First, we knocked down the wall between the two spaces and relocated the door.  We also removed two full size linen closets so we would have enough room to add in a separate tub.  We kept the toilet and shower in their previous locations, but added a pedestal tub and second sink.  The bathroom is still not huge at 11ftx8ft but we managed to fit everything in and stay within our $7,000 budget.  We also added built-ins to the walls between the door to the bedroom so we would have linen storage.master bath with sherwin williams sea salt paint, pedestal tub, white subway tile, carrera via www.goldenboysandme.commaster bath with sherwin williams sea salt paint, pedestal tub, white subway tile, carrera via www.goldenboysandme.comcarrera, lowes arch mirror, beverly vanity, waterton sconces- www.goldenboysandme.commaster bath white subway tile, glass tile shower niche, exposed shower - www.goldenboysandme.commaster bath with pedestal tub, sherwin williams sea salt, built ins -www.goldenboysandme.comMaster Bath with carrera, waterton sconce, chandelier, lowes arch frameless mirror - www.goldenboysandme.comwhite master bath with bead board, carrera, white subway tile, built-ins, waterton sconce, frameless arch mirror - www.goldenboysandme.com

Beadboard: PVC from Home Depot.  This is on the ceiling as well.  It is reversible and comes in two sizes.  We used the shorter (3ft), closer spaced beadboard on the walls and the longer (7ft), wider side on the ceiling.  Great product to work with.

  1. GORGEOUS!! You did an amazing job and I love all of your choices. They will stay in style forever.
    We did an overhaul of our master bath too and know how much of an undertaking it is to move and add plumbing, walls, etc. Doesn't it feel good to accomplish it yourself?!
    Thanks for sharing. I love it!

  75. Wow. I am absolutely stunned by two things.

    First, I can't believe how amazingly beautiful you managed to make that space look spending only $7,000. If I was given that same space and budget, I'm not sure I could deliver a COMPLETE and functioning bathroom at all, let alone one that looks like I (easily) spent $25,000 (which, btw, is the minimum amount that anyone who knows what good stuff costs would guess your bath to have cost). So, my hat's off to you for pulling this off!

    Second, I see that you respond to each and every comment individually, thanking the commenter for reading or or for their compliments. That might actually impress me more than the subject of the post because I can think of only one other blogger who even comes close to that (and I've read a lot of blogs!). It's so off putting when people post things publicly, solicit comments--and then ignore them! So, thank you for thanking us! ;-)

    I look forward to browsing through the rest of this site. (Did I mention I'm a first-time visitor?)

  79. In case you're searching for a wonderful appearance, toughness, and simple upkeep, you can't beat artistic floor tiles. Another great decision for a washroom is vinyl flooring. This kind of material comes in either 6' or 12' widths, so you just need to purchase the measure of you need. Vinyl is accessible in a wide assortment of examples, some of which are very one of a kind, and others which are intended to take after hardwood, stone, or tile flooring. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2015/12/looking-intently.html

  81. Hello! First, thank you for being so generous by sharing the details of your bathroom remodel! I can't tell you how excited/grateful I am to have these details. I do have just a few questions ...
    1) For the bathroom tile, is it a octagon-and-dot tile design that you have? If so, is it low sheen?
    2) Are there any more details you can provide regarding the type of glass tile that was used for the shower niche?
    3) I saw that some folks who purchased the same glass shower unit had trouble with installation and/or the drain? (One person mentioned the drain being flimsy ... what are your thoughts?)
    4) Between the wall sconces and chandelier, do you feel you have sufficient lighting in the bathroom? (I just love the look!)

    Thank you again!!
