A guest bathroom makeover reveal that includes before and after photos, budget DIY projects and stunning modern design
Guest Bathroom Makeover Reveal
Ummmmm, I can’t believe I’m about to type these words. OUR FRIGGIN GUEST BATHROOM IS DONEZO! DONE! FIN! FINITO! IT IS FINISHED! Y’all I can’t even believe it. We thought we were big timing last APRIL when we started this One Room Challenge and decided to gut this bad boy to the studs.
In case you missed any of our weekly posts on this before I gave up posting weekly because I was about to leave a Carmen shaped hole in the front of our house, click any of the links below:

11 MONTHS LATER HERE WE ARE! Technically it’s been “mostly finished” since right before Christmas which would make it around nine months, but we just had to put a few finishing touches on it. So, because I know you’re all squirming, I’m going to hush my mouth (fingers?) and let you just scroll through the photos for a minute!
I will say that I am SO MAD at myself for not getting us a portable bathtub, though. Having one bathroom in the midst of not only having a toddler but adopting a newborn has about put me over the edge, but NO MIND BECAUSE WE ARE DONE NOW!
Okay, wait one more thing. Let’s just show some more before/during pictures so that you can FULLY appreciate where we have come from:
Then we sat in this state for MONTHS:
Don’t fret. I’m doing in an entire separate post to talk about our total budget and sources for everything, but for now, I’m just trying to let you bask in the glory for a moment.
Okay, I’ll stop teasing you. The reason you came was a guest bathroom makeover reveal, right? Well, HERE IS WHERE WE ARE TODAY!!!
This is just a regular hollow core door and my husband cut the top out of it and we had a piece of glass cut to fit in here.
We hacked this Ikea Bekvam step stool for our daughter to be able to reach the sinks to wash her own hands.
Also, if you were praying with me that my husband would let me have some fun in this bathroom and put up a funny bathroom sign, the prayers have been answered! I love the one we chose and it makes me giggle a little every time I see it.
Speaking of poop jokes, I typically don’t show photos with a toilet lid up (cuz #gross) I just had to show you this lid we got. It’s called a TinyHiney and it’s got your child’s seat BUILT INTO IT. It’s friggin’ genius. And the name is also hilarious.
That’s all for now! If you need me, I’ll be sitting fully clothed in our $5 tub as my “office” today.
What do you think?!?! Was the 6-week-turned-9-months-of-work worth it??? Don’t forget: I’m doing an entire separate post to talk about our budget and sources so make sure you’re on our mailing list so you don’t miss that (you can sign up right here) and make sure you’re following along on Instagram, because I’m showing a lot of behind the scenes real life versions of this space too!
If this space inspired you make sure you pin this for later:
