My Notting Hill Revealed - Before & After on Pure Style Home

First, a huge thank you to Lauren of Pure Style Home for including my pepto-pink "master" bath redo in her guest blogger Before & After series. Why the word revealed in this post title? Well, I still can't believe I actually showed just how bad the condition of this bathroom was before doing something about it.(I promise the peeling paint thing happened mostly all at once...) Go here to see the full post on Lauren's blog - including a cost breakdown. Thank you Lauren!

Wow! As the owner 4 (count 'em) fabulous baths c.1964....I am so impressed. It's gorgeous.

I spent the past 7 months on the reno/redecorating of the "public" rooms of my house; sadly the bathrooms will have to wait until another chunk of cash falls from the sky. But until then, I will keep this transformation in mind.

I read your guest post on Lauren's blog. You did a wonderful job with this bathroom. So much brighter and up to date. Loved the vanity and the sink you used.

great job, babe. we are in a
1940's cape cod and our mba was the same pink tile and our hall bath was a perriwinkle blue tile. I did the exact same thing - primed then painted the tiles white - even in the shower area. It held up wonderfully for the approximately 14 years we used the baths before totally gutting. wonderful decisions, choices, and styling. bravo!

Absolutely terrific. Have a small bathroom with yellow (think 60's) tile in the shower. I'm inspired to try the repaint route. Put tumbled Turkish marble mosaic on son's bath room floor...terrific look. Great job, thanks for the inspiration! Trish

What a transformation! Looks great!

My Mother painted her tile which was similar and it looks gorgeous. It's amazing what paint can do for a room. xo

Hi Michele - Read your post on Lauren's blog. Your bathroom looks great and thanks for sharing your ideas and tips! I painted the tiles on my kitchen backsplash in my old house, but you really went the distance. I can't get over the difference. So pretty! Love the marble floor!

Looks great, and actually looks like a bathroom in my mother's house, which I inherited. I'm just worried about the toxicity of the reglazing paint, though. I hear the fumes are crazy. Is that true?

My Notting Hill said...

Fiona - Hi. I agree those fumes are really strong but I used regular paint on top of Sherwin Williams prep rite primer (details on Pure Style Home) When I had our tub professionally reglazed I opened every single window and door, left the house and kept all of them open for 12 hours.

Quite a brave reveal - and a fantastic transformation! The Ikea vanity looks great against the marble floor.

Live In Full Color said...

I'm totally inspired...I have the ugliest tile border in my Master Bath that I have been dreaming of painting over- will do now for sure.

I can't believe the price for the sink and console! Ikea rocks!
