We have been working on updating the downstairs/guest bathroom. We didn't change any of the major pieces, but we added some colour and changed out the old accessories. We still need to get a new mirror for over the sink, and some art for above the new shelf, but it's looking a lot better already. The room needed some new caulking and the walls really needed some repair and fresh paint.
We took out all the old caulking around the sink, counter, and bathtub area and replaced it all with a fresh coat. We took down the old builders mirror (which you can see how to do in this post), and pried the old towel bar and toilet paper holder off the wall. Then we replaced the gold knobs on the cabinet and the gold door knob with one that matches the new knobs upstairs (slowly we want to replace all of them to be the same).
This is our new towel bar, above. Much better then the glued on white porcelain and plastic one. We also bought a new colourful hand towel with a matching bath mat. Below, is the matching toilet paper holder. It does a funky twist that we thought was pretty neat.
Then we put a hook on the back of the door for guests to use to hang their bath towel or clothes on. The one piece of art we have put up in here we had from our old place. It was gift from a good friend, and I still love it.
It's looking a lot more inviting for guests now, except the whole missing a mirror part. We want to get a mirror with a big frame around it. We found a couple that we liked, but the measurements were wrong for the space. I think that is going to be the hardest part for finding a mirror. Hopefully soon we can find one that will go there perfectly!
