Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

I seldom post but I spend plenty of time on these boards and want to thank everyone here for all the knowledge you continue to impart. What a wonderful resource GW is for those of us who love to remodel, rebuild and redecorate! So glad I found this forum.

We bought my parents' home about three years ago and have been remodeling ever since. Built in 1980 it has a wonderful floor plan...just needed some updating. We rebuilt the master bath last fall and love every bit of it. My husband did all the carpentry, electrical, plumbing, painting, etc. - I think I'll keep him!

We took out one of two walk in closets (moved my husband's clothes into built-ins in the MBR), removed the old tub, and opened it up considerably. We love looking out to the back yard - it's completely private so we decided against window coverings.

Before - the original double vanity has been replaced by a built-in dresser.

The old bathtub and toilet were in a separate compartment

The shower had its own little room, too...

The window that had been above the tub is now in the shower. We took a picture to the artist and had it happy with the result!

We added storage cabinets (made by DH) in the WC to replace a linen closet we are removing from the hall in preparation for our kitchen remodel later this year.

This corner cab houses our electric toothbrushes - nice to have them out of sight.

Beautiful! Love your faucet!

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

That is AWESOME! Keep that husband. I didn't know Williams Sonoma had mirrors....just kitchen stuff. Beautiful combinations.


RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

Wonderfully warm and sophisticated. You must be in heaven. Your floor is just beautiful in the first "after" picture.

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

Beautiful! I live in the area (Fairfield - right where 680 meets 80) and am curious where you got all of your beautiful stone?

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

Serious wow stuff. I bow to fellow DIYers!

Always ;-)

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

Very nice, love the floor.


RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

It's fantastic. So glad you posted a picture with the mirrors. I bought one similar but it's still not up. In fact, it's still in the box. It's nice to get an idea of what it will look like.

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

Beautiful space! :) I would love to get ready there each day, and the view is gorgeous.

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

Beautiful! I love the creamy tones of the marble counters and limestone floor with the dark cabinets! And that vanity space--gorgeous! Enjoy!

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

Magnificent! Love everything.

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

Very nice job!

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments! We are thrilled with the outcome.

kailuamom - We got all the stone at Western Tile in Dublin...they have another store in Concord. Great service and pricing...wonderfully run, family owned. The limestone is by Marble Systems and the color is either Seagrass or Olive Green...the two are often used interchangeably.

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

It is gorgeous and I love the improved use of space. I'm sure you will enjoy being able to see outside as you get ready every day! Great job and thanks for posting the details/sources.

RE: Master Bath reveal...lots of pics!

Wow, what a gorgeous transformation! I love what you've done.
