Comments - Reveal: A Dingy Bathroom Gets a Breath of Fresh Air

Kim on Dec 28, 2019:

We’re almost done with a very similar bathroom? Where can I find your toilet paper stand and is it well-weighted not to tip over during use? Thanks.

Angela S. on Jan 12, 2017:

Love your bathroom, looks very similar to ours, can you please tell me the color of the walls that were painted.

Was searching Pinterest for bathroom remodel ideas and stumbled across your post. Not kidding, we have the exact same floor and wall tiling as your original bathroom. Guess its definitely time to pull the trigger on our remodeling plans.

Eileen on Jun 22, 2016:

Hi, beautiful! What size is the vanity? Thanks

Sarah on Apr 23, 2016:

Looks great! What color paint did you use?

Meghan and Al on Jan 05, 2016:

Lowell, I'm sorry I'm just now seeing your question.

We used a pencil liner that matched the marble to top the tile. You can see it really good in the photos of the sink/faucet.

Hey Sandy! The painting we hung over our toilet is by Lulie Wallace but the paint color of the walls is a Benjamin Moore Color, Gray Owl. It's a great cool gray and is on the walls of most rooms in our home.

We've loved the countertop color and durability. It's been great! You'll love it.

Sandy on Jan 05, 2016:

Hi, I noticed you listed Lulie Wallace for paint. Was this a custom color? Several asked paint color but I didn't see response. Can you let me know if you can share? I just ordered Aspen counter top but now finding difficulty with paint color ... don't want to take away from the beauty of the countertop. Your bathroom is very pretty.

Lowell on Aug 23, 2015:


Love the renovation, could you let me know what you did/used for the end tiles of the shower (where it meets the painted wall on the side); bullnose or left alone? Could tell the bullnose on the top of the partial wall, but wasn't certain of the other edge. Even better if you have a photo!

Chloe on May 28, 2015:

LOVE THIS!!  Do you mind sharing what brand and color you used for the gray to paint the walls with?!


julie on May 11, 2015:

Would you mind sharing the cost of the renovation?

What is your wall paint color? Really nice job!

Meghan and Al on Apr 29, 2015:

The vanity was a custom order from Lowes made by Kraftmaid in Greyloft. 

Andrew on Apr 29, 2015:

Could you share color of vanity please? Thanks!

Meghan and Al on Jan 06, 2015:

@Eddie The tiles were as picture when we pulled them out. There were some darker tiles but we really liked the contrast. 

As for the sealer, after asking around a bit, we sealed after the tile was grouted and used sealer Lowes suggested. Sorry but I can't remember the brand/name. Hope this helps!

Edie on Dec 16, 2014:

I apologize if this is a repeat but not sure this is posting. We just put up the same tiles and they look so dark. How long did you have to wait for the tiles to lighten after putting them on the wall before sealing? Which sealer did you use? And did you seal again after grouting? Looks Beautiful!!

I do like the original floor better.

Meghan and Al on May 26, 2014:

@martha - Thanks! We love it too :)

Which outlet are you refering to? We actually moved the old power outlet from on the wall by the mirror to in line with the switches.

Meghan and Al on May 26, 2014:

@Robin - We did remove the old floor. I was told the same thing but was determined (or dumb) enough to take it out anyways. It was hard, but went much quicker than expected. Amazing what a 42" pry bar and pickaxe will do.

Martha on May 20, 2014:

What led to the decision not to replace the electrical outlet?

Love the renovation!

Robin on May 20, 2014:

Question on the floor...did you have to remove the old floor, or did you tile over?  We have the exact same 70 year old floor in our bathroom.  We were told it is very hard to remove because it is set in cement.  Thanks!

Meghan and Al on May 19, 2014:

@jeanio-- thanks! It's not the same vanity but a very similiar size and shape! The old one was made of particle board and was falling apart :) 

Jeanio on May 19, 2014:

I love the new look but isn't that the same vanity with a coat of paint and new fixtures?

It looks great! I love the wall tile and I'm so glad you can shower at home now!
