~our master bath~

I thought I'd show you the master bathroom which is right off our master bedroom. I guess that's a given......
Anyway, we added onto it around 8 years ago, adding a walk in shower and a jacuzzi tub. I'm such a tub girl. I'd take a bubble bath over a shower anyway.





Here are some ways we saved money:
The bathroom vanity was a returned item that was marked down. Look for these items at home improvement stores. Sometimes you can find special order items that were made not exactly to the customers specifications, and you can get them for a steal. This particular one was maple and it was cracked in a couple places. We asked the manager for an even bigger markdown and got it. Sometimes, actually all the time, it doesn't hurt to ask. I knew I would be painting it anyway, so it was perfect. I painted and distressed it and added appliques to the doors. The granite counter, sink, and backsplash was a all in one deal at Home Depot as well.



This shelf was a thrift store find that was around $10.00 whole dollars. I painted it the same color as the vanity and distressed it as well.


I love this for necklace storage!



These jars I got at Rejuvenation after winning a gift card on this fantastic blog!



I love lighting these candles at night. It creates a very relaxing mood. The floors and all the other tile are travertine and were bought right off the shelf at Home Depot. I normally have bath mats, I just took them out for the photos. I tiled the shower and my husband did the tub and the floor. We make a great team! I made the gigantic mirror above the sink, it was actually one of my first mirrors I ever made. I made it the same way I make all my picture frames. If you'd like to learn how, you can, for $10.00 my e- course will show you how. Sign up for it here!


Do you want to see what we started with? A teeny tiny little closet of a bathroom!


And then, when we started ripping into things, we found this lovely surprise.

If anyone has any suggestions for dressing up those windows, I'd love to hear! I have been stuck on what to do for a really long time! Holly???

Hope you are having a great weekend! I am taking 3 girls to the Taylor Swift concert tonight!

I love how you reformed your bathroom, it's beautiful. What a nice place to relax on an autumn evening! Very inspirational!

Beautiful bathroom! Maybe three pieces of ironwork for above the windows? Something bigger above the middle, smaller above the two others.

We have very similar travertine. What do you use to clean your shower? I'm about to use a sledge hammer.
Have fun at the concert, maybe we will bump into each other! ;)

Melaine....This is what I would do with those windows...I would place just one rattan shade as long as you need to cover the width of all three windows combined. I would placed it as high as possible. then I would put a drape between each window giving the illusion you have one huge picture window that is very large. What do you think??

I've been looking at that same travertine @ Home Depot ... I'm scared to use it because I don't know how hard it will be to keep it clean on a bathroom floor and in the shower. Please let me know details. Thanks so much!

Some buffalo check fabric would be lovely!

Hey Melaine,

I was looking back in your past posts looking for master bathroom inspiration and saw you had a question about dressing up the windows. If you came up with something would love to see what you did.

I sent you a Pin to help describe what my suggestion is...I would go with white heavy molding around the windows. Where the 3 windows merge as one big wall of windows beefed up by heavy molding. The I would either get roman shades or a more textured bamboo...

Just my two cents😃
