It’s week 6 for The Jeffrey Court Tile Renovation Challenge! It’s now time to see if this ugly duckling became a swan.
The Jeffrey Court Tile Renovation Challenge is here! WOW! The fastest 6 weeks ever! The buzzer has sounded and our hands are up, it’s time to see the beautiful room!
Before I show you our AFTER photos let me remind you where we started.
I really don’t wanna go back there either but we NEED to.
Yep there she is our ugly duckling bathroom. Cramped, worn, and tired are the adjectives I would use.
Feel free to add your own.
So many little issues were hiding in this space and I am happy to say that I think we have solved them. Ok, I am excited! Pretend I am holding your hand and your eyes are closed and I am leading you to the door. I say, “On the count of three – open your eyes”.

Can you believe these petite french doors are actually bi-fold doors I just reinvented?
Y’all the ugly duckling is a beautiful swan! Pretty unrecognizable, huh.
With the linen closet gone – a larger vanity area could be installed. I decided to separate the two sinks with a tower and set up pull out drawers for linens, towels, makeup, etc.
Under each sink, I installed “pull out” shallow bins, so the entire area is accessible. I finished the edges of the pull-out shelves with a simple banding material before painting. I wrote a quick tutorial on it here.
The tower is filled with a few favorite things but can easily be switched up to suit the needs of the girls. Guess what? There’s a hidden door – that can house blow dryers, curling irons, etc. The hidden door has extra power – to hopefully make getting ready in the morning super easy.
I was fortunate enough to have Liberty Hardware sponsor all the gorgeous knobs, pulls, and towel bars.
The vanity wall now boasts one of the most beautiful tile patterns I have seen in a while. I love the boldness of the blue. This was the first time I had ever tiled a wall with such large heavy tile. It took a few mistakes to get it right but once I did- I was golden.
I even had to break the jigsaw out to cut a circle out for the light fixtures!
Oh, and the tile around the linen tower crown molding? I had to jigsaw that too. The jigsaw and I are best friends now. I call him to “jig” cause we’re that close. Ha!
Now let’s take a look below our feet- don’t you just LOVE this floor? It makes this small bathroom feel much larger.

Following the floors lead we end up in the tub/toilet area.
The apple green is a distant memory now! How fabulous is this set up?
The Carrera ceramic tile is perfection. I am so glad we changed out the “linen” colored tub for a classic white one.
Of course, every room must sport a monogram. I love the simplicity and elegance of this shower curtain – can you believe I found it on clearance??
So this next little picture isn’t the best photo but I had to show you the tub area light. Instead of spending big bucks replacing it, I spent $11 for a seed glass globe and I painted the white base with an acrylic matte metallic paint. So easy and it looks a hundred times better!
I also painted the two round mirrors in the same matte metallic – so much better than the washed-out gold they arrived with. To save money I updated the existing tub area light with a little paint. See the easy tutorial here.
When in doubt- paint it, friends!
This project had a few hiccups and I won’t lie- we are some kind of tired.
The Jeffrey Court tile products are truly the stars of this bathroom remodel and I’m kinda bummed it isn’t in my bathroom. HA!
Thank you for following along with me as we took on this little tile renovation challenge adventure. It’s amazing what can be accomplished in 6 very short weeks!
Huge Thank You to Jeffrey Court for choosing me as one of their 12 for this round. I have loved every minute of it!
Oh, and I found the vintage wooden swan, circa 1915 at Round Top a while back and it’s now this little bathroom’s mascot.
