Small Cottage-Style Bathroom

Here’s the upstairs bath before we moved in. Quite little, lots of light, and dated.Bathroom Makeover |Indigo & Honey

We started by removing the old sink (late one night…. and had to stop in the middle because, like most things in this house, it proved to be more complicated than we predicted) I ended up repurposing the cabinet as a little potting table out in the garage (with a new top). After living with out a sink for a couple week, we had our pedestal sink installed. It was well-worth the wait.



I almost kept the little medicine cabinet, but ended up switching it out for a round, rattan mirror which brings some nice texture to the space. The bathroom still has the old charm feeling, but with a fresher outlook. (I think I heard it thank me.)

I took the cage off that it comes with, it made it look more industrial–which is cool, just didn’t work so well in this bathroom.

One day I hope to completely the re-do the shower. For now, we removed the old accordion door and put up a pretty shower curtain.

We decided to lay some new tiles as well. They were, yet another, steal at only 87 cents a tile. The color is called “Gray Marble”, I wasn’t able to find the link online.

The color is slightly off in this image. The sun was setting as I snapped it so the tiles look a bit warmer on the right than they are. But I love them. So easy to install and gave the bathroom an instantly fresh lease on life.
Before I wrap up this post, I had to show one more feature. The sweet little built-in over the toilet. Perfect solution to make up for, the now, lack of vanity!
