Can we collectively say FINALLY the modern eclectic master bathroom remodel is complete! Y’all have been here from the beginning when we started the remodel in April to now completing it in December. Initially I wanted to have the remodel finished when my husband got home from deployment as a “Surprise! I did this all by myself!” Oh boy, little did I know how many issues and how much help I was going to need especially with a super active toddler running around.
I am so grateful to all of you that helped, supported, and cheered us on through this whole remodel. It wouldn’t have been possible without y’all!
If you want to go back and catch up on some of the previous updates on this master bathroom remodel – here are the links.

Alright, now before I show y’all the goods I have to take y’all down memory lane and show you the “green monster” again.
Are you ready for the reveal??
Can we all just sit here and admire this beauty? To say I am proud is an understatement. This was one of the most stressful remodels I have ever experienced, but the end result had me crying because I was so happy with what we brought to life.
Let’s chat about this tub for a second. This was the very first thing I had picked out for the remodel, yeah I know. Who pick out a tub before tile and paint colors..this girl right here! I saw the American Standard Cadet tub in a showroom and literally got in and sat in it as if I was in the comfort of my own home. My husband got in it after he and my father-in-law installed it and gave me a funny look like “this was obviously meant for your size” look. But what 6 foot man likes to take long luxurious bubble baths? (*que Gracie Hart from Miss Congeniality)
The artwork above the tub was a good find on Etsy and I was able to send the digital downloads over to Frame it Easy to print and frame for us! Can we talk about convenience? I mean I love shopping, but not when my toddler is throwing tantrums in the checkout line.
Do you see that built-in right there? If you follow me over on instagram you saw a TON of behind the scenes on this entire project. Including the start to finish on this linen closet I turned into a faux built-in. There was a resounding yes on sharing a tutorial on this so as requested, it’s coming soon!
I could talk for days about how many contractors told me I should do things a certain way because it’s “the standard” or it’s “not usually done that way.” Well I hate to break it to ya, but I’ve NEVER followed the rules of standard design or fashion. The fashion bit is probably why I’m not a fashion blogger.
Our bathroom had heated floors and we found out while we were demoing the tile. We had heated floors for 2 years and never used them, funny right?! It wasn’t even listed on the “home features” when we bought the home. So I’m pretty sure the previous owners that lived here for 12 years didn’t know either. YIKES!
So because there were heated floors our new tile was going to sit A LOT lower than before. The door frames ended up having a 1″ inch gap when the tile was finished. I ripped this door frame off because our tile contractor told me I would need to. Then I reinstalled it because I shouldn’t listen to other people.
Long story short, I cut off scrap pieces and used wood filler for free to make them longer and saved myself $75 each per door frame.
We swapped places with the old tub and shower and removed the entryway to my closet that was in the bathroom. The shower actually was in the corner where that plant is, it was roughly 2×3 ft and was basically the size of an RV shower.
I don’t have an issue with a small shower being 5’1″, but my husband on the other hand was not a fan of ducking under the shower door frame to get in. Just picture Buddy the elf taking a shower in Elf….HILARIOUS.
These vanities actually came with other vanity tops that were an ugly beige color. So we thought sourcing from a stone fabricator would be cheaper, but that was not the case. Most places in Nashville charged at the lowest $60 a square foot for countertops and we needed around 16 square feet. Without even counting tax we were looking at close to $1000 alone on countertops. That was a hard no from Mr. HOLL.
I sourced these Carrara marble countertops from Home Depot for less than $300 each and they included the sink bowl too! However, I had to run all over Nashville and surrounding cities to 6 Home Depots to find the slap I liked.
Remember folks, natural stone will look different because it’s not engineered and its all from different slabs. So if you’re looking at buying this, you MUST look at them in person!
Say hello to this black shiplap goodness. I always laugh when my husband gives design input, but I decided to go for this one. He sent me a photo while deployed and said “let’s do this in the toilet room.” Meaning, I should figure out how to do and make it beautiful haha.
The photo he sent me was very farmhouse looking and we don’t live in a farmhouse, so I wanted to add my own modern touch. We did Varathane Golden Oak on the shelves and painted the shiplap BEHR Black Noir. It was the perfect mix!
My husband even added the frost adhesive to the lower part of the window since I didn’t want to put blinds in here again. It’s a small space and getting as much natural light in here was the goal.
We opted for NO GLASS. I know, someone is going to tell me how it would look soooo much better with glass.
There were a few reasons why we opted for no glass:
- We were given the quote from one of the only glass fabricators in the area and said he was giving us a “deal” since we used his tile guy. It was a whopping $2,600!
- Neither of us ever squeegeed the glass on the tiny shower, so we didn’t think we would do it in a shower 10x that size.
- That “deal” the glass guy was giving us blew our budget out of the water.
This was my first time making a DIY picture ledge and I went big, like 8 ft big! I decided to hang one along the entire length of the wall the tub was going to be against.
For the tub filler we went with the DXV by American Standards Modules collection for a modern sleek matte black option to flow with the rest of the fixtures in the bathroom.
I hope y’all love this master bathroom as much as we do! I have to give a HUGE shoutout to my husband and Grade A Home Improvement for all of their hard work and making this vision come to life!
And none of this would have been possible without my amazing sponsors! So, THANK YOU!
