I totally gutted this second bathroom located off the hallway before I moved in. I did all renovations, painting, lighting and draperies prior to my move because I just wanted one day to unpack and be settled. And it was all it took! I would highly recommend doing all the renovations you need to a home before your big furniture and clothes move so you won’t be stressed out. It was the easiest move in my entire life, ever.
This bathroom was not pretty. Boys lived in this house. So I gutted it.
This is my bathroom since it has more drawers and Mr. Wonderful and I like our own personal space. Remember, we couldn’t share an office, so we couldn’t possibly share a bathroom.
Ricki recommended subway tiles with dark grout all the way up the walls with a honeycomb floor. The new thing that was happening over ELLE Decor. Since I don’t clean grout like ever, I decided it was a superb idea.
I always get compliments on the curtain, it’s from Anthro.
I also decided to place the lighting where I stand so illuminate on both sides, better than uplighting. This former beauty queen knows what’s up and what looks best when you apply makeup.
I’m not a big expensive product freak. I use hotel shampoo when I travel, I think my hair just works with anything and so I use every basic thing. Except skin care, I use whatever my facial lady Vicky tells me to use.
We put in granite shelving in the corners to match the vanity counters, and in the shower, I wanted the subway tile to go up to the ceiling as well. I think the only thing I would have added would be a light in the shower, but it still works. I also installed a bathroom fan since I was just dating Mr. Wonderful and knew that I would marry him one day and I was already notified that boys need a bathroom fan. His main bathroom is the master bedroom bathroom, which I’ll show you later.
I don’t typically shoot interiors so I’m not sure if it’s even kosher to show you the toilet. My bad if it’s not. It’s clean if you’re wondering since my cleaning lady came.

Diana Elizabeth doesn’t spend that much time getting ready. About 20-30 minutes max from shower to makeup. She’s quick. She doesn’t understand girls that take so long, it’s not like your eyeballs changed places on your face.
