bathroom reno diy.

last week on hello scarlett i promised that i would show our first renovation that *g* and i tackled days after we got little green.

initially, every time i left our bathroom, i felt more dirty than when i entered it.

is that not the opposite function of a bathroom?


i began to brainstorm about how i could get it to look cleaner, and all i could think of was white, white, white. we also did not have much money to spend, and kept in mind that there could not be any major changes.

with $35 towards new lighting, $30 towards paint, $15 towards new switch plates, and a little switcheroo, we had an improved bathroom!

would you like to see the results? just keep on scrolling …

later, we also removed the door to the bathroom and replaced it with a sliding door that we attached with a barn door kit.

i then painted it white and black.


in the end, cleanliness is next to godliness! :-)

  1. Your way of explaining all in this piece of writing is truly good, every one
    be able to easily be aware of it, Thanks a lot.


  2. I’m so glad you somehow found my blog because I have fallen in love with yours! This post made me so happy. When I tell people I’m obsessed with white on white on white with MAYBE a little gray, they look at me like I’m crazy. This proves my point perfectly! Looks great!

    WOW! What a tremendous difference for so little money. Love it!


    • thank you!

      *g* and i are masters of disguise. ;-)

      in all honesty, the color of the paint is a huge factor in the overall feeling of a room.

      it’s astonishing, sometimes.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • F*ck. I’m not sure how much more my little bug can take. Looking back at my @Instagram posts, Remy began to get sick exactly one month ago. Since then, she has had the flu, strep throat twice, and now what is essentially scarlet fever. We spent our morning at the hospital and even after a plethora of tests, she came home in good spirits- playing with our dog and her dolls and giving us hug after hug. My heart breaks for her, and for everyone else with a sick child. It’s not easy. I feel broken inside. My little wanderer.
