Operation New Bathroom Part III- Almost Complete!

23 Feb

The bathroom is now 100% functional and about 90% complete- yahoo!

In the past week, it has gone from this.


To this.


Ben painted and patched the ceiling and added crown molding…


Installed the base boards….IMG_2534Installed the vanity and mirror (both from Home Depot/Home Decorators)…IMG_2546

Installed the sconces (from Lowe’s). We used Edison style light bulbs from Home Depot. Aren’t they so cool?

IMG_2537Installed the oil rubbed bronze sink and shower fixtures (all Delta)…


IMG_2524And hung the curved shower rod and shower curtain (from Kohls)…

IMG_2523As you can see it’s pretty much complete. Here’s what’s left on the agenda before we can put a fork in it:

  • Install a new window and window casing (coming Tuesday)
  • Switch out door hardware
  • Build vintage-looking ladder to hold towels
  • Decorate walls and open shelving on vanity
  • Install toilet paper holder and towel bar
  • Hang window shade

Very exciting! Now off to go bowling with some friends in the city. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    Love the bathroom–what paint color did you use for the ceiling and trim?

    I would also love to know what paint color you used on your trim?

    Hi! Love your bathroom. We are currently installing carsiding in new bedrooms we’ve added. I am wondering if you used a primer on your boards and are you having any problems with bleeding from the knotholes.

    • 12oaksblog September 6, 2014 at 7:01 am #

      Yes we primed and there has been a bit of bleeding. Use a really good oil based primer. Good luck!

    Hello! I’m curious about your sconces. I found these exact sconces from Lowes. However, the inside of the base is white. Did you paint the inside of the sconces to get rid of the white base? If yes, what method did you use?

    • 12oaksblog February 14, 2016 at 1:03 pm #

      Yes it is. I spray painted it oil rubbed bronze and it blends well.

    Where did you get your subway tile? (Sorry, if you already covered this in your post or comments).

    Your bathroom is beautiful and I LOVE your sconces! I was on Lowe’s website and looked through the bronze sconces several times and didn’t see yours… could you kindly send me a link? They would be perfect for my bathroom remodel! 🙂

    Love the vanity. Where was that purchased? Expensive?

    What does your ceiling light look like? We need on with a fan in it.

    • 12oaksblog September 10, 2017 at 2:56 pm #

      We have recessed can lights including one that has an exhaust fan built into it.

      • Heather September 10, 2017 at 3:14 pm #

        Maybe weird question but do you have a pic of the ceiling? My bathroom is laid out the same and I wanted to see where exactly yall put the lights

      • 12oaksblog September 10, 2017 at 3:19 pm #

        I can’t attach a pic but there are two down the center and one in the shower.

    What color did you paint the ship lap? It looks like a pretty light blue and I love it!!?

    • 12oaksblog April 9, 2018 at 7:23 pm #

      Thanks. It’s Palladian Blue.
