Blue Bath Be GONE- A Weekend Bathroom Makeover

Ever spot a room that is just all kinds of wrong? Well, let me introduce the blue bathroom. It was a 9.5 on the bad scale for me, like wrong on so many levels. With just a few hours to spare I gave this bright blue space a much needed bathroom makeover... with a little spa like touch!

You certainly can’t take into appreciation a bathroom makeover without the jaw dropping before and after… brace yourself for the brightness.

You have to see the transformation of this bathroom in only a weekend!

For real, that was the color! I can’t describe it as anything but the brightest of bright blue.

Update a builder grade bathroom vanity with new hardware and a Delta faucet

Ahhh, a much lighter, calming color! To update the builder-grade vanity I swapped out the chrome hardware with flat black, and replaced the faucet with a ARA single handle flat black, water-efficient one from Delta.

This faucet came with the colar to convert the three hole sink. The Ara faucet is much more streamlined and modern.

Then there was this mystery hole in the wall. I know, a bit weird. I’d say there was supposed to be a linen closet built there at some point. However, not a weekend friendly task, so I found this table second hand and it couldn’t fit more perfect! I had to refinish the top and give it a lick of paint. Can you believe how well it fits in the space?! Almost like it was made for there!!

I just so happened to have the clearance Ikea mirror waiting for a home and repurposed the unused bench seat as well.

what a great idea! Frame a piece of pretty wrapping paper for cheap artwork

The makeup vanity artwork was created by framing a pretty piece of wrapping paper and applying a vinyl sticker (cut on my Silhouette), so easy eh?!

On to the shower… possibly my favourite 5 minute upgrade EVER!

Have you heard of the Hydrorain® Two In One Shower Head from Delta? Seriously folks, less than 5 minutes to take the builder grade shower to a spa like experience!


You’ll have to check out my video on Facebook to see how long it really takes!  There are 7 shower settings in total so you can use it as a raincan, plus a shower head!

The leu is tucked in its own little cubby, kinda funny, but no fear of someone walking in on you!

Check out the bathroom makeover before and after one more time. I’m really happy with my progress in just one weekend!

I know this bathroom has so much more potential and maybe down the road I’ll give it another spiff up, for now the bright blue bathroom lives no more!

Disclosure: As always the opinions and ideas expressed in this post are 100% my own. Thank you to Delta Canada for helping me update our shower with the Hydro Rain Shower Head.
