Back in July my wife and I purchased our first home and ever since we have been renovating. It started as a simple update to some outdated items. It was a house built in the fifties and nothing had been updated (except for some pretty sad updates in the bathrooms). Over time we ended up having to update almost every inch due to outdated electrical and plumbing and it just being an old home. Seven months later and we are finally move in and are thrilled with the way it turned out. It took longer than expected but we couldn’t be happier with the result. We’ll slowly be sharing all of the updates we made to our home in the hopes that we can help shine a little light on the process whether you’re contemplating a similar scenario or just looking for some stylish decorating tips.
First up is my wife’s bathroom… the house has two bathrooms so my wife and I each took on one to disperse the workload. Her’s turned out gorgeous! Favorite part? It’s a tie between the amazing hand-painted tile rug (surrounded by classic penny tiles) and the light-reflecting crystal knobs we received from Hickory Hardware.
