before & after: andrea’s elegant bathroom makeover

by Kate Pruitt

looking at this before picture, i have to be honest and say what i’m thinking, which is, “this is when i run out of the house and never return”. i am endlessly amazed by the many of you out there who tackle large home renovations, and i want to say right now how much i admire you. it’s possible the reason i am squeamish at the thought is that i have a vivid memory of my parents redoing their kitchen, and my father nearly lost his mind trying to choose the faucet. it’s like choosing a toothbrush from the millions of nearly identical options out there, except the toothbrush costs hundreds of dollars. so again, i want to say that i am immeasurably impressed by this before & after project from andrea.

andrea and her husband nathan live just outside of atlanta, georgia in a 1967 ranch style house. it is their first home together, and the renovations of the entire house (!) took about five months…wow. looking at this elegant, gorgeous bathroom, it is clear that andrea and her husband had a million decisions to make and it seems to me that they chose wisely on all of them. i love all the details, including the chandelier over the tub and the silhouette of their dog, walt on the vanity table. what makes this even more impressive is that some of the fixtures were found at flea markets and ebay for great deals. i will definitely be looking to this for inspiration if i ever (yikes) have to renovate a room of my own. thanks so much for sharing, andrea. great job!! –kate
