Reader Redesign: From Bedroom To Bathroom

When Kim sent some pretty dramatic before and afters our way, we couldn’t wait to share her bedroom to bathroom conversion. Here’s her letter:

Okay, Youngsters… I’m biting on your quest for before and afters. I’m not sure if it’s quite drool-worthy enough, but I wanted to share my favorite room makeover in our house – our upstairs bathroom. We bought a foreclosed home a year and a half ago. It was built in the 30’s so it had lots of lovely touches, but the prior owners had run it into the ground. It took about 8 months to make it livable, and we just “finished” it in August (although we are learning that it’s never really finished). Our upstairs bathroom was a tiny bedroom when we started (about 6 x 11). But, it makes a fabulously large bathroom.

My husband and our dads ran the plumbing and electrical and today it’s a lovely retreat and truly my favorite transformation in the house. I took a cue from your blog for the open bathroom storage with baskets and fell in love with a shower curtain from Ballard Designs. It kinda all started from there. Hope you like it! Keep the design inspiration coming!- Kim

Crazy good transformation, no? We love that open storage with those adorable baskets and we’re head over heels about the idea of taking a small unusable bedroom (anything 6 feet wide is a bit crazy) and creating a spacious and serene bathroom full of crisp and clean touches for a totally current feel. Thanks so much for sending those pics our way Kim!

    Everything Kim touches is as amazing as this beautiful bathroom. Her Thanksgiving decorations were as beautiful as her Christmas arrangements. What a talented young lady. She must have amazing parents???
