Y3W | The Bathroom Reveal

You guys? I'm so excited to show you our completely renovated bathroom... eeekkk! There were quite a few set backs along the way, but we pulled through them and finally finished this disaster of a project. And the result? Well, it's amazing.

First? A little tip. When you have annoying little house projects to do and you continuously put them off weekend after weekend, my tip for you is this...

Invite people over.

It works every time. And that's exactly what I did on Saturday. So I ended up looking like this for most of the day...Painting 6-panel doors is my hell. {Along with filing and being stuck behind a slow driver in the fast lane.}

Let's take a look back to the "before" pics, shall we? {So embarrassing, but it shows just how far we've come!}
Ugh. It's worse than I remember. But I did get to put a hammer right through that effing "x" on the wall...

...and boy did that feel good.

So the final product? WE LOVE IT! I want to give a big gigantic THANK YOU to my wonderful father-in-law, Mike, for all the fantastic work he did. He is amazing and we are so very lucky to have him in our lives {and not just because he's a great renovator, lol} Thanks Mike!!

ETA: Check out the bottom of the post for info on where I got some of the items!
The details...So there you have it... our gorgeous new bathroom! Although I said I wouldn't post these pictures until it was officially D.O.N.E., I did. There are still a few minor things that we want to do: put up a towel bar, change out the light switch covers {right now they're just the standard cheap ones} and lastly, buy this sign that I've loved since 2006. I'm not kidding. {I never had a bathroom that it would match... and now I do. =}
So you want to know where I got some of this stuff, huh? No problem...

Paint Color: Shenandoah Taupe by Benjamin Moore {this is the most gorgeous paint color I have ever seen. I stole the idea from my sister who has it in her dinning room.}
Target: Shower curtain, towels, baskets in drawers & closet, candle on the bottom shelf
Home Depot: Sink, faucet, lights, tub, toilet, mirror, granite counter top, closet shelving, etc.
Kohls: Wood shelves above toilet, vintage tub picture, "M" and the jar with scented sticks on top shelf

Gorgeous! Can you share the color/brand of paint on the walls? Where'd you get the fab shower curtain? Vanity? Countertop? Lights etc? I'm always looking for tips on where to shop and what people did. Thanks!
