our fixer upper bathroom is finished

Our new bathroom is finally finished! 

What started as the 6 week One Room Challenge, ended up being more like the 12 week challenge.

To see my posts from the beginning click here for week 1, here for week 2, here for week 3, and here for week 4.

That is where we had to stop and take a break. Our new business was keeping us busy on other peoples projects and we had to put our own on the back burner. 

We crashed and burned to get this done, working sun up till sun down, but it paid off as we all love our new guest bathroom and fight over who gets to use it! 

I'd say my favorite part is the heated floors and the built in blue tooth speakers. I also really love having a rain shower head. It really feels like a spa in there. 

Here is a little collage of the before and after:

This is such a small space that it was hard to photograph, so most of the pictures will be close up shots. 

We were going to do a cement tile floor, but as the bathroom progressed, I felt like it would be too busy with everything going on. So we opted for a black hexagon floor and I absolutely love it. 

This is the in floor radiant heat we used. 

I decided last minute to shiplap the back wall. I painted it out with bright white straight off the shelf, as well as the other walls.

We added pot lighting to the ceiling, where there were no recessed lights. 

On a separate switch we added a single sconce above the mirror. 
This sconce is stunning! It's so much better in person, trust me!

The way the light filters through the tiny holes at night, just dreamy. I literally leave it on 24/7 so I can get that glow. This sconce is handmade in Morocco by Master Artisan Larbi. It is a unique piece that I haven't seen anywhere else and it's the perfect touch for this small bathroom. {ours is the large, color: gunmetal}

I had wanted this mirror for a long time and finally got it. It's super heavy and has the industrial modern look I was going for. 
Ours is the oil rubbed bronze finish in the small size. 

The vanity was super inexpensive! All I did was swap out the nickel pulls for black ones and that was it! 

The sink faucet is matte black and a bit modern with really clean lines.
You can find it here. 

For a bit of color I used blue penny tile on the shower floor as well as the niche in the shower. I LOVE penny tile, and the blue keeps the bathroom looking fresh. 

Now, can we have a moment for this shower door?! The whole bathroom was designed around this custom made shower door from Coastal Shower Doors. It is part of their Gridsscape series and it is fabulous. The day it showed up outside the garage it was like Christmas morning. So so good. I highly recommend them!

We also added a hand held shower head inside the shower, mainly for dog washing. But, it is a nice option if you don't want the rain shower.

I love white subway tile, but wanted something with a bit more texture. So I picked this wavy 4x16 tile for the shower walls. It's very suitable for a bathroom as it reminds me of waves. 

In keeping with the matte black finishes with a modern feel, I got this tp holder and this towel bar.

And one more before and after, because that fiberglass bathtub from the 1950's was just so bad! As well as that floor! 

Many thanks to you for following along on my One Room Challenge even though I didn't finish in time. I hope it was worth the wait.
