  1. Everything looks so beautiful. I like barnwood shelves above the toilet very much. Glad I stumbled upon your blog: such beautiful transformations. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, those shelves are fun to accessorize!

  2. Lora, this is truly an amazing project. Love every little detail and it looks perfect to me. I’m happy to feature your post this week on the Tuesday Turn About Link Party. Hope you will come back and link again!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Michelle! I definitely will pop back!

  3. Lora, this bathroom makeover is top notch! It’s amazing how you made it look updated yet balanced with vintage touches. I always find the coolest accessories on your blog, like that mirror over the vanity and the little fans. Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Crissy! It’s so fun to have space in the bathroom to enjoy a bit of fun accessorizing!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laura! I haven’t had much tile in my house before, and I am really enjoying the pattern!

  4. You did a great job! We have one of those 100-year-old houses too where nothing is square or level, so I feel your pain. But the update is perfect. Pretty and functional!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Lisa! Yes, these old houses…it’s a love/hate relationship, indeed!

  5. Lora, I love how your bathroom turned out!!! Really pretty and the dresser turned into a vanity is beautiful… <3 Very chic, and I can't believe how inexpensive the tub insert/surround is!! I showed my husband as I like the curved arch and the little shelves for soap and shampoos.

    Enjoy your bathroom's new look,
    Barb 🙂

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Barbara! Yes, I was impressed how much nicer those tub/shower inserts have become, and much more inexpensive than tiling!

  6. Julie Briones says:

    Super lovely, Lora! Love that stool… so pretty! and the side lamps… and the vanity… all so pretty! Pinned! Would love to have you link up at Tuesday Turn About!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Julie! Will definitely do!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for the feature, Cindy:)

  7. Y’all did a fantastic job with such an old bathroom! When the Mister tiled our other house, he said he was done as well. I’m glad I didn’t have to do it! Love everything you’ve done in there but that dresser for a sink vanity has to be my fave! Oh wait, it could be the door or maybe the tile! Enjoy! Pinned

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cindy! Definitely worth all the hard work!

  8. What a beautiful room! I think it was worth waiting for–it would have been wasted on kids (LOL)! Stupid question–what kind of finish did you use on the buffet top to make it water resistamt? I have 2 china cupboards, a buffet, a second buffet at the foot of the kingsized bed for more storage, a bureau, dresser and nightstand all in that cherry/mahogany color!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I used 4 or 5 coats of Minwax Polycrylic, Satin finish, Kathy. I will be doing a post on the whole process soon!

  9. This looks amazing Lora! I’m so excited for you. I love all the finishes you chose and your floors are totally fabulous. I’ve always wanted a vanity that looks like a piece of heirloom furniture too. Yours is definitely on my bucket list now. It’s all really beautiful. Well done! Hugs, CoCo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, CoCo! I’ve always wanted a bathroom big enough for a piece of vintage furniture, and one with a sink and storage is even better!

  10. What a gorgeous bathroom makeover, Lora! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm–pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cecilia!

  11. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Maybe it took a while but it certainly is pretty, i think bathrooms are a hard room to redo they can be costly. I have one i need to redo and i will when i decide what i really want to do in there. I love the vanity and your little things made all the difference to the beauty of the room.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, Marlene, bathrooms are a big remodel job! Probably why this one took us 17 years to start! But all the hard work is definitely worth it!

  12. Shelly Torola says:

    Wow! Good things Do come to those who wait!😊
    Looks super!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Exactly, Shelly!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Karin! I guess patience pays off;)

  13. Oh my goodness, it all looks so beautiful Lora!!
