Guest Post : Master Bathroom Reveal!

Good morning!  Today we're happy to welcome our new blog friend, Charmaine, for our maiden guest-post revealing her new master bathroom renovation.   

Hi Powell Brower readers!  I'm Charmaine from My Best Friend Craig and I am happy to be guest posting for Nancy while she is hard at work finishing her breakfast area for the Spring into Action Challenge.  Today, I want to share with you our most recent project.  Our master bath.


Here it is, as promised...


{We used 3x6 white subway tiles with black pencil trim.  The frameless shower screen is from ark showers.}

{We are glad we went with white grout.  It gives it a fresh and cleaner look.
The towel rack is from restoration hardware outlet.}

{The Madonna and child painting is by a local Filipino artist.  I found the lucite tray at an antique store here in Milwaukee.  The wall color is Stonington gray by Benjamin Moore.}

{We painted the existing vanity white and changed the hardware and countertop. The inset medicine cabinet and wall sconces are also from restoration hardware outlet.  I got them for 1/3 and 1/2  off the retail price, respectively}

{The white Carrara basketweave marble tile is from Oracle Tile and Stone through Amazon.
I made the pelmet box out of  pine board.  I got the "Sultana lattice" fabric from Calico corners'
remnant sale.}

Here's how it looked when we first saw the house...

and after...

{The room looks bigger now that the soffit is gone!}

What do you guys think?


Such a fresh inspiration for those of us who need to redo our bathrooms, amazing what a whole lot of white and a little marble will do.  Thanks Charmaine for sharing this with us! You are one resourceful woman that we admire!

P. S. Check out my Spring Into Action challenge reveal tomorrow, the 19th!  


  1. What a beautiful bathroom. I received the lovely lavender bowl, yesterday...all in 1 piece, great packing. Thank you so much. I will blog about it as soon as I finish my Spring Into Action..still not done ;(

  2. I now have bathroom envy! I love the classic tile. The floor...dying! I really prefer simple classic things and this totally fits the bill.

  3. wow, oh, wow! what a fantastic job you did. but I'd expect nothing less! love it all and the art makes the room. donna

  4. Thanks for having me over! Thanks ladies!

  5. Amazing transformation!! Just gorgeous.Love the subway tiles.
    Happy Wednesday.

  6. Oh my goodness!! What a fabulous job you did, Charmaine! I love every inch of it! Thanks for the intro to a new blog, ladies!

  7. It looks amazing, what an improvement! I love the window treatment!

  8. Oh my goodness! I love your new bathroom! How awesome is this! What a total transformation!


  9. So, so sooooo fabulous!! Feels like a chic hotel. I'm in love with that tray over the potty. The art is the perfect accent. Well done!

  10. Wow, that black pencil trim is really stunning! I love the "framing" effect it has on the room; it pops but it doesn't overpower the space. Cool idea! The bathroom sconces are new as well, I gather? Where did you get those from? They look great!
