facelift; guest bath

As promised, here are the pictures of our guest bathroom with a little bit of a facelift.

I wanted the overall look of this tiny guest bath to be simple with touches of glam and drama. Except for the paint and the shower curtain fabric, I decorated using pieces we already owned, but am considering replacing the shelving unit with either a round side table or a shorter rack. The shower curtain is actually window treatment panels sold at ikea and a steal at $14 {two panels}. I used four panels. The paint color is Mysteria by Behr Premium Plus in semi-gloss. I want to add decorative wood paneling to the walls and change the lights above the sink at some point. The mirror is antique silver from India, and a gift from my mom. In total, we spent less than $100 and that is the part I am most pleased about.







I didn’t think I had a before pic, but just found one from last year. It was only a few days after we moved in. yep it was SAD!


So there it is… whaddaya think?

  1. What counts is its use and the power to fix a particular interpretation of the events, objects or people depicted. ,

  2. congratulations manvi! it looks absolutely gorgeous. i love that you’ve chosen a dark colour even if the room is small, it’s daring but you pulled it off brilliantly.

  3. thanks all! @charlotte the chandelier is from ikea. i got 4-5 years ago and it think it was around $30.

  4. my goodness Manvi!!!! I am so excited to see the finished product!!! and I love, LOVE it! Specially the paint color and the chandelier, I think it’s dramatic and chic to no end. I love that color for a bathroom, so soothing, you did just wonderfully. Love the mirror too…. couldnt get a good look at the curtain but it looks equally stunning. And under $100??? what are you Hermionie Granger????



  5. Manvi – the new bathroom decor is lovely. Such a difference!

    I agree with you on the shelving unit – I think it needs to be lower in order not to conflict with the divine chandelier.

    The colour of the walls is delicious – I want that colour too!

    Thanks for sharing.


  6. Hey Manu,

    Awesome facelift of the bathroom and for not much more money! Really love the wall color and the lighting from the chandelier adds a beautiful soft lighting to the space.

    Keep up the great work!

  7. very interesting!its amazing how small details can change the look of a place.

  8. Thanks so much for your wonderful comments. I feel so encouraged! You are the best!!

  9. It’s incredible! I can’t believe what you did to such a small space. I really love the chandelier and mirror.

  10. What a transformation! And that for a mere $100!!! Splendid! I LOVE the wall color and the chandelier and the mirror. I agree w. you that a different display unit would be nice – but it is far from urgent. Your guests will be thrilled!
