Bathroom Makeover!

Marla from Marla Plain and Small (who is anything but by the way) has an amazing bathroom transformation to show off.  It's gorgeous.  Here is a bit from her reveal but click the link to see all of the details and more pictures!

Bathroom Remodel (before & after)

Demo time!

Removing drop ceiling...

Besides being completely gutted, the bathroom floor was leveled.

Ready for the big transformation?!?!

 Everything is new. 

Marla's advice:
Save as much money as you can to pay for it with cash
When shopping, see how your items go together.  We took tiles over to the vanities and laid down paint chips...all in the store!
Know what you're doing or hire someone who does.  My dad did the majority of the work, and we couldn't have done it without him.  He did electrical, plumbing, construction.  You will be disappointed and discouraged if you attempt something you know you can't do alone.
Wait for sales, discounts, coupons!

So what do you think?  Stunning, isn't it?  I love everything from the vanities to the tile, lighting choices, colors and that ceiling!  Great job Marla (and family)!  What a change!

Marla has a fun week of giveaways going on so you definitely want to stop over and get entered (ends Sunday!)

I'm speechless, it's BEAUTIFUL! I love the wall color, what color is that? I love everything from the mirrors you chose to the vanities. Great job, and what a lucky girl to have a dad who knows how to do those things. =)

The wall colour is completely lush, isn't it? They did a good job to be able to fit in TWO basins!! It makes the room feel pretty luxe.
