Bathroom Update Sneak Peak

Bathroom Sneak Peak by Sweet Pea

I’ve been hard at work on our main floor bathroom update and although the project isn’t complete, progress has been made.  If you missed the before pictures, click over to see the difference a new paint color makes in this room.

I started plans for this update by selecting fabric for the shower curtain.  I made this over the winter and am so happy to finally get to hang it.  I picked the wall paint color from a gray in the fabric.  The ceiling was painted white, the walls gray, and the trim, closet doors, and main door got a fresh coat of white.  The door is still in the basement.  Thank goodness we have more than one bathroom!

This yellow rug is one that we’ve been using in this room and the color still works.  I’m not sure if I’ll keep this rug or get a new one in a different color.

A big project was refreshing the floor grout.  I explained how to do this last summer and after a year of heavy use, it was time to refresh it again.  Not only did I do the floor, I did all of the walls, too.  It took several hours but was well worth the effort.  Both my floor and wall tile look almost new.

Are you wondering what is left to do?  I plan to have a large mirror cut for the wall that you see in the picture above.  It will have to be custom made because the outlet is in the future mirror’s space.  It’s going to be great to finally have a mirror other than the tiny one on our medicine cabinet.

We are planning to replace the pedestal sink with a cabinet.  I found one that I like in a local shop and need to bite the bullet and order it.

I have one piece of art for this room that will hang over the toilet.  Additional art will be nice, but I’ll wait until I find it.

I hope to have this project finished by the end of August.   We are really happy with how it’s looking so far!


  1. So cute! I looove that fabric for the shower curtain! Also, what shade is that grey? I am trying to pick a shade of grey for our bathroom too and there are just so many. I am collecting different names of ones I see around the web in projects!

    1. Thanks, Megan. I saw the fabric at Cotton Gin and later mail ordered it. The gray is from Lowes and I think is called Urban Gray. I have half a quart left if you’d like a sample of it.

  2. I’ve tried to bleach my grout before, it looked nice but boy did it smell!!! Didn’t know there was a product for this, thanks for sharing! Really like your shower curtain and love black and white tiel!

    1. Bleach didn’t work at all for me. The stuff i used is great and lasts for a long while. If you click on the link in my post ( I am on vacation and am typing on the fly) the product’s name is on that post from last summer. I bought it at Lowes and the bottle has enough left after two applications to do at least two more.

      Thanks for your sweet compliments.

  3. Hi Paula! This little bath is really taking on a personality!! I just love the shower curtain. The whole color scheme works really well. Enjoy your vacation…hope Sherman got to go!

    P.S. I made you cucumber-mint couscous and it was so delicious. Thanks for that recipe…it’s a keeper!

  4. You are doing a great job. We redid our bathroom a few years ago and it was a big job. I hope you are keeping your sanity with you.
