  1. A lovely renovation, very pretty. Did you remove the old tiles yourself?

    1. Thanks, Lee. Actually, we didn’t remove any tile. The old tile on the walls and in the shower was just sprayed by a company that specializes in porcelain spray. Not sure how long it will last, but it’s a guest bath that doesn’t get much use. The floor tile is new, but it was laid right on top of the old tile. That’s what kept the price down.

  2. Gorgeous! Love the floor tiles and all your silver touches…just beautiful! Hope you’ll hop over and share at Amaze Me Monday…
    Blessings,

  3. Porcelain sprayed? I have never heard of that! I just went on Google to look it up, and it sounds like a way to get what you want without quite so much expense. Hmmmm….thinking about our kitchen and the changes I’d like to make in there!

    I must tell you that the transformation of this bathroom space is nothing short of phenomenal!!! It is so pretty now! I love a white bathroom, and a chandelier is ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS right at home in a bathroom in my opinion! (Glad you mentioned what the electrician said about putting the chandelier over the tub. I wanted to do that, but if it could present problems, no point in thinking about that anymore!) I adore that wash basin, and I’m just over the moon with the fabulous pieces you found to carry out utilitarian jobs in a fashionable way!!! My pinning finger will most likely fall off before I’m done here! 🙂

    The mirror over the tub is FAH-bulous!!! What a beautiful way to set it! You really have made a wonderful statement with this bathroom!

    1. Thank you so much Alycia!! Yes, the spray was a huge epiphany and money saver. I’d seen it done successfully before, so I knew it was worth a shot. I’d be careful about using it in a well used room though, because it probably chips pretty easily. Ours has held up perfectly in the months since we did it, but when we were first renovating, we had the shower door replaced and the installation caused some chipping. Fortunately the spray company takes this into account and you are entitled to a touch up once your renovation is complete… 🙂 And yes, I much more enjoyed the accessory shopping to picking out faucets!

  4. Wow, Lory, this is gorgeous and looks like way more than a bandaid fix. I love it!!

    1. Thanks Kim! If I was sure we were staying, I would have gone for marble and nicer plumbing fixtures, but I am happy with the result. And as of now, we’re staying… lol! (Although I change my mind every week… ;-))

  5. Gorgeous bathroom Lory and I adore that you hug the mirror in the shower! That is genius….

    1. Thanks Christine! There actually is a separate stall shower on the right side of the room, so right now that’s just a tub. But it used to have a shower head in it, as well. That’s right – when we bought the house there were two showers in this room!

  6. A very lovely remodel…and I think that white for a bathroom is the best. So clean looking. I have white bathrooms…except for wall paint. Everything else is white. Visiting from MyKentuckyLiving.

  7. This looks great, Lory! Beautiful transformation! My hubby sprayed the blue shower tiles in the master bath of a 50’s home, we recently renovated for our girls. It really makes a world of difference! Your bathroom is stunning!

  8. This came out beautifully. A very calming, serene space. Love it.

    1. Thank you Sheri! I’m glad you commented because I hadn’t seen your blog yet. I’m pretty new to this so going over there now to read… 🙂

  9. Well done – it looks amazing. I cannot even believe it is the same space, wow!!!!

  10. I have heard of getting tile sprayed. Curious to know who well it holds up. The results are beautiful !! Luv the creamy white 🙂
    Cheers, Gee

    1. Thanks Gee! I doubt it would hold up to a lot of use, but for the guest bath it’s been fine so far. We did it about 6 months ago. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!

  11. You really gave your bathroom a wonderful fresh and updated makeover! Love all the pretties sprinkled around.

  12. porcelain sprayed? I’ve never heard of that. I’m tempted to make a room all blue but reno is so much work.

  13. Your bathroom is divine! I love your vanity and that mirror over the tub. Thanx for joining THT!

  14. Hi!

    Beautiful bathroom redo! Where did you get the mirror over the tub and vanity?

    1. Thanks Jessica! The mirror is from a local antique shop in New Jersey, but the vanity is readily available at Home Decorators… 🙂

  15. I am so inspired by your bathroom. Didn’t realize tile could be painted. thanks for the tips and inspiration.

  16. Love the new bath, great job lightening up the colors, can you tell me if you sealed your new white grout , getting to do mine need some recommendations

    1. Thanks Becky! Yes, we sealed it but actually the grout is not new. It was just sprayed over when they sprayed the tile. Since we were putting in a new floor, the our tile guy did all the sealing. Also, I need to underscore that this is a guest bath, so doesn’t get a whole lot of showering use. But so far in 6 months it has held up perfectly.

  17. Absolutely stunning! Can you tell me where you purchased the floor tiles? Brand? Pattern Style Number? Manufacturer Color Name? Thank you so much!

    1. Hmmm… would have to dig out the box of extras to see, but it’s a porcelain tile meant to look like tumbled marble. The corners are an iridescent glass mosaic. If I have a chance I’ll come back and give you more info.

  18. How much does that porcelain spraying run? I love that idea! Were trying to do as little as possible to get our house ready to sell
    This sounds like a great idea. Ours looks kinda like yours did!
    Thank you
    Wendy

    1. Oh gosh, I can’t remember but it’s by the square foot. It’s not exactly cheap, but it’s WAY cheaper than knocking out all the tile and putting in new.

  19. I have been thinking about this as a solution now that I have seen how great your bathroom looks! Can you tell me how bad the toxic fumes were, and how long they lasted?

    Thanks. It looks lovely.

    1. Thanks Teri! You definitely need to open the windows upstairs, if that’s where your room is, but it wasn’t unbearable. Was much better by the next day.

  20. Ok, you are the first I have seen use the porcelain spraying….how was the process?? how long did it take? Will it last do you think?? I have old tile and tub also, 1959. I’ve been thinking about it, so what company did you use??
    Oh it looks fabulous!

    1. Thanks, Nancy! Here’s the deal on the spraying. Process was easy to deal with. Hired a local company – they came in and did it in one day (took a couple of hours). Had to keep the windows open for a day or so, so I wouldn’t do it in the winter. Then, they told me to have all my other work done in the room, and then they would come back at the end and do a final touch up. The only place I needed that was when I had the shower door installed, the installer chipped the spray (as well as my wall!) The touch up was included in the initial price and worked fine. It still looks great today and we did it at least a year ago. BUT that said, I would not do this in a bathroom you use frequently. This is a bath that used to be my kids’ and now is a guest bath. It is rarely used except for when then kids come in and even then, they still prefer to use my shower. So I would say it’s a great option for either a room that’s not often used, or as a temporary solution to hold off a more complete renovation. I doubt it would hold up well with prolonged use. It does look really great though. It was SO ugly before!

  21. Hey Lory, We are currently working on our upstairs bathroom reno. We ended up having to mostly gut ours because of plumbing problems. We kept the old sink and tub and they’re being refinished. I love how your remodel turned out. It has a light fresh look with a touch of drama from the beautiful chandelier and mirror. And those pink peonies have me dreaming of summer.

    1. Thanks, Sally! We had to do some plumbing work behind some of the tile, but because we were spraying the tile, they were able to just replace the tile in that area. Amazing what just lightening up the room did for it… 🙂

  22. Hopping over from Wow Us Wednesdays. Your bathroom is stunning. Love all the updates and decor. Thanks for the inspiration and enjoy your lovely space!
