New countertop & mirrors

Hey there friends...
I told you there were more changes to come in my son and daughters jack & jill bathroom and today I'm going to show you them.

This January marked 11 years for us in this house...and many changes have been made!
 This is the only bathroom that we didn't remove the builder grade mirrors and replace them with pretty framed ones. We even took it a step further in here and replaced the formica counter top with a solid surface one.
I was so excited to get this done I forgot to take before pictures:( but I was able to find these.
In the next two shots you can get an idea what the Before was...
 Now let's get to the Afters...
The color of the counter is called toffee...I ordered two side splashes along with the back splash...I like the finished look it gives.

The mirrors I bought in Home Goods...they were a dark silver color and I painted them AS Pure White.

I really liked the chunkiness of the frames.
I went with rectangular under mount sinks instead of oval...so happy with that choice.
I also upgraded the edge type to ogee.

The faucets and lights we changed out the year we moved in.
Found the rug in Marshals...I like the pop of color it adds.
Looking out from the tub and potty room.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The under-mounted sink is going to much easier for them to keep clean. I really like their shape and the mirrors!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty, Martina! Love the countertop you went with. I had that faucet in the powder room in our old house and loved it with the touch of white.

Martina, love the new looks, you made some great choices! Awesome sinks too!

Blondie's Journal said...

Very, very nice, Martina!! I love the counters and painting the mirror was a great idea, I love how it turned out. Maybe they would be selling them faster had they looked like this from the start! Ha!

Great job! :)

XO,

Love the great changes. So fresh and bright. Love the sinks and the ogee edge. I ungraded to that too when we did 2 bathrooms. Love how your redo turned out.
The mirror painted is wonderful!

It looks great. Very upscale and lovely. Great choices on those sinks. I like the rectangular ones, too. You did a good job, Martina! xo Diana

Bliss said...

The mirrors look fantastic but I'm zoomed in on the fact I can see your fish in your tank. Ours is just like that and someone has been neglecting their duties!

Stacey said...

That looks amazing! I really like the rectangular sinks. That's not something you see everyday and it is good looking.

Art and Sand said...

I love everything, but my favorite is the sweet little table in the last photo and the vignette you created.

Judy K said...

Great changes to the bathroom. I love the sink shape. Beautiful makeover.

chateau chic said...

The bathroom looks so nice with all of your upgrades. I know the feeling of getting rid of builder grade everything. We still have it in the kitchen which I'd love to change sometime.

Looks beautiful Martina! I really refer undermount sinks. In our secondary baths we have the sink counter top combo where it is all one-tumbled marble. Can't wait to rip um out some day.
