The very long awaited post about my bathroom remodel is way overdue. We have been so busy with all of our remodels lately that I haven’t had a spare minute to sit down and write the tutorial. Today however I am going to give you all the details on how we transformed our master bathroom to the bathroom of our dreams. Not only do we love how our bathroom turned out, we also did this on a very tight budget and all on our own. I hope this post inspires you to transform your own space. It is all fairly simple: just requires a lot of hard work and lots of patience.
We also painted and stenciled our bathroom floors. The stencil that I used on this floor is from Royal Design Studios. The stencil pattern is called the Anatolia Tile stencil and you can find it here. It looks great on a floor and would look perfect on any wall! What I love best about this stencil is its large size and forgiving pattern! Even though it didn’t match up to the size of each tile, you can barely tell where my grout lines are! It made the stenciling process go 10x faster!
I’ll start with the easier step by step tutorial first: how to paint your shower tiles. This will also work on a bathtub- however we did need to do this, our bath was already white.
1.Tape off your counters and protect your vanities or cabinets.
2. Tape off your sinks, use a plastic or a garbage bag to protect the inside of the sink.
3. Using a foam roller, apply the kilz Adhesion Primer with 2 coats. Let Dry.
4. Using a different foam roller, apply the white base color of your choice. Let Dry.
5. Using your artist sponges, sponge on the lightest color. (This is where I used my paper plates to separate all the colors for easy access). I used a very light grey.
6. Use the same sponge and sponge back over the white paint, this will blend in the grey to make it appear more natural.
7. If you want a “dirtier” marble look you can sponge in some darker grey paint in a few areas. Be creative!
8. Remember to always sponge back over with the white to blende it back in.
9. You can also use different sponges to achieve different looks.
10. To make the marble veins:
11. Blend in the veins with the white sponge. You can blend some veins in more then others so it appears like some veins are deeper into the stone.
12. Be creative and don’t be afraid to add more layers of different shades of grey. If you feel like one spot is too dark just go over with the white paint on the sponge. I let everything dry and wanted to tone it down a bit more so I went back over everything with a very very light coat of white paint.
13. Let the Paint Dry
14. Apply the epoxy. Follow the instructions on the Glaze Coat product.
Act fast! The product will start to harden after 10-15 minutes.
I hope these tutorials are clear enough to help you transform your own bathroom. As always, if you have any questions please leave them below of feel free to send me an email at [email protected].
