Home Renovations Part 2!

We’ve been hard at work over here! I feel like this whole project would just be done in a matter of weeks if it were not for one thing…

At any rate, we’ve gotten help from my parents and we’ve worked in shifts and we’ve gotten the master bath and bedroom nearly complete! The bathroom is mostly finished, just need to install trim. Need to paint the trim first, though…

Master bath before (when we bought the house).

In progress... we painted the walls green at one point when we had an 'India' theme going in our master bed/bath. Don't ever paint your bathroom walls green.

Primed and ready.

New bathroom!

New toilet, shelf, mirror and vanity. All from Ikea. Except the toilet!

I love this sink!

We painted the woodwork white. The walls and fresh, bright sage green. It looks white unless you know it's green.

I just LOVE our new bathroom. It’s so much brighter! I feel clean just walking into it! And the sink cabinet is much shallower, so we’ve gained quite a bit of floor space, too.

The guest bath is up next!

      hello
      i came across your blog and am thinking of having the Lillangen sink installed in my bathroom. Did you have difficulty installing it? I live in the US, and I’m not sure if Ikea’s sinks/plumbing are based on European plumbing standards. I’d like to know what your experience has been with this Ikea sink before I take the plunge to purchase the sink and have a carpenter make me a cabinet to fit this sink.

      Thank you so much.

    Hi! You bathroom looks fantastic!!! I found your blog while i was searching for images of the Lillangen. I want to install a Lillangen vanity/ mirror cabinet combo very similar to yours, but I’m worried that the mirror cabinet is too deep. Do you ever feel cramped with this set up when at the sink? Does the mirror feel too close? Thank you so much for your input!
