The Pink Master Bath

Pink, Pink, and more Pink! That was the Master bathroom theme  from the previous owners of our new home.  Pink toilet, sinks, tile in the shower, tub, and tub surround, pink tile on the floor---Pink everywhere!

 Don't get me wrong, I love pink, just not in the bathroom that I share with my husband; after all the poor guy has 4 sisters, and 3 daughters, at least  he deserves a semi-masculine bathroom! The pictures below are BEFORE pictures taken prior to our purchase. How about that pink??

Our  realtor told us about a  NJ company that a previous client of hers had used that spray painted the tile. After seeing the quality of their work, their guarantee, and their price fitting into the budget, we contracted the project.  Below is the final result of lots of hard work and compromise.

A change of color on the walls, new chandelier with dimmer switch, and window treatment bring a romantic French feel to the room.The window treatment is a quick sew project easy for windows, and also works over tubs with showers. The French shelf and monogrammed towels are from Horchow. The addition of accessories, like candles, always add a spa like feel.

The countertops were upgraded to granite, new double sinks, faucets, toilet, and updated lighting completed the project for the time being.

Final cost of the complete project is much less than replacing all of the tile at this point. We found that the demolition and installation prices combined, contributed to the project being out range at this time.

This now allows us time to plan a new design for the bathroom in the future and search for that perfect tile to compliment what has already been completed.

Most importantly my husband does not have to face a PINK bathroom everyday!
