My parent’s bathroom makeover before and after

One of the best parts of blogging is when I get to help out others in some way. Recently I was contacted by Virtu USA to make over a bathroom, and since I’m happy with both of ours, I decided to use the opportunity to give my mom & dad a bathroom makeover instead. My dad has been battling cancer for a couple of years now, so it was really nice to be able to give their bathroom a much needed update.

bathroom makeoverBefore we started, her builder grade bathroom from the early 1990’s didn’t have enough storage, the flooring was wrinkled, and it just needed an update.

The walls got a fresh coat of Sherwin Williams Pure White, and I even whipped up a quick set of curtains from some scrap fabric.

  1. What a gorgeous vanity – and how special that you were able to do this for your parents – must have felt better than even doing it for your own home, right?
    Beautiful job!

  2. Wow, what a change. I love the Vanity! Good on you for helping your parents out with a makeover, blessings for you family for all they are going through!


  3. How fabulous is that vanity! The floor! The accessories! The curtains! LOVE LOVE LOVE it all!!!! Mom and Dad must be over the moon! : ) APPLAUSE!!!! : ) hugs…

  4. I love the makeover, but really love the vanity and faucet. Beautiful addition to your parents bathroom. Great job!

  5. Love the change to the bathroom. You did an amazing job.

  6. I love this Gina!!

  7. Seriously gorgeous, Gina! Love the carved details to that vanity! What a difference, they must adore their new bathroom!

  8. This is a great makeover! I need to rethink my bathrooms, too. They need to be overhauled and updated. We have been here 12 years and I haven’t redecorated the bathrooms, at all. I have changed many of the other rooms, but not the bathrooms. Thank you, for the inspiration, Gina. ~Cynthia

    love it. I’m drooling over that vanity. it’s funny how parents and grandparents live w/outdated rooms, but LOVE it when it’s redone. I wonder why they don’t think to update it for themselves? they deserve it after working for years and they would enjoy the updates in their retirement. I understand finances are an issue for most folks so dont misunderstand. Great makeover – I’m so glad you could do this for your folks.

  10. Lovely makeover. I have never heard of Virtu before – but I will definitely be checking them because I am changing out some sink fixtures and I absolutely love the faucet set you used.

  11. Why do I have a feeling mom and dad are spending wayyyyy more time in the bathroom these days! The whole redo is wonderful but that vanity makes the space. You dun good.

  12. What an awesome gift to give your parents!!! I know they have to just love their beautiful “new” bathroom!

  13. Great job! I absolutely love the vanity/mirror set.

  14. I just love this! We’re getting ready to remodel our master bath (it still has carpet. Gross!) and I need all the ideas I can get.

  15. What a wonderful gift you gave your parents. It’s amazing how a few simple changes can make a room look new. The bathroom now looks beautiful. Great job!!!

  16. Stunning detail on the vanity cabinet, and pretty detail around the mirror. LOVE the faucet a well. Your curtains complimented everything just beautifully. You have such good taste!

  17. What a great transformation! I am sure your mother will be very happy with the increased value in her home as well!! Nice work!

  18. Hi,

    36″ Would leave approx. 5″ per side of space
    40″ would leave approx. 3.” per space.
