DIY Bathroom Remodel: Full Reveal
Ok, you guys. We’re d.o.n.e. 😀 It’s been a long time coming, and we’re so excited to have our finished bathroom to come home to. We’ve been super excited to show you the results, but the process is where the real magic happens. If you’ve been following along, you know how much work it takes to DIY a bathroom remodel, but also how rewarding it is to wrap up! I’m going to unpack some more photos later because there’s so darn much to share. I’ll go into more detail with certain things then, but for now come on in!
Enter and relax.
Before & After
Just so we all remember the before photo. On the left is the tiny shower and this was the entire bathroom. On the other side of the shower wall was an unused storage closet in the laundry room. We tore into that space for what in now the new shower.
DIY Modern Rustic Bathroom
Some of you totally hit the nail on the head with our “Rustic Modern” theme.
Joe made the most perfect shelves – I’ll tell you more about those later!
Here’s the vanity area. Rustic on the bottom, modern on the top.
We love the waterfall sink.
If you turn around, we can take a walk into the shower.
Just step up the ramp here.
We love this little detail on the partition.
Our plan was to carry the floor tile all the way up to the shower dials, and we’re so glad we did! We liked it so much we continued the pattern in other places too…
like into our little niches.
The river rock floor feels pretty cool under your feet.
Here’s what the jets look like turned on.
Our handheld sprayer really comes in handy for dirty feet, or a scalp massage.
Joe’s favorite – the rain shower.
More river rock on the ceiling.
Here’s a steamy view through the glass. We’re still not sure whether we want to frost it or add decals, or leave it as-is. We’ll keep you posted.
Paddles are our new symbol of the house. My brother and his girlfriend painted this one for us for Christmas. I happened to have the other paddle piece, so we used them together. It was meant to be.
It’s amazing what it looks like in here with more daylight vs ambient lighting.

And that’s the tour! Most of these photos were done by Joe’s talented sister. Highly recommend checking out her work at iMMMagine Photography if you need a photographer. As I mentioned, we have a whole bunch of details to share still, but I wanted to throw some of these photos out right away.
Countless man and woman hours, 4 months, and roughly $3500 later, we have a fully functioning second bathroom with plenty of room. Ahhh, we sure could get used to this feeling. Now to tackle the rest of our to-do list!
