Oona’s Bathroom Makeover {sigh}

My dear, long time blog friend, Lisa
happened to share her friend’s 
bathroom remodel with me.

Although Lisa didn’t share it
with the intent of me featuring it,
I thought it was too b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. not to share with you
so I begged for more pictures and details.

I am simply amazed with the transformation.

This is what Oona started with…

I don’t mind the shower door with the transom thing,
but agree that the rest needed to go.

Here is the breathtaking after…

Help! I need CPR. 

Can you believe that it’s the same bathroom?

Wall removal, which included a closet,
and the addition of the glass dividers
made such a difference and really opened things up.

Oona chose such lovely details for the space.

I am in love with those sconces and shades,
the sink console cabinetry, and accessories…

…not to mention the damask stenciling
of the entire bathroom.
 That labor of love was well worth it.
Oona and Lisa were kind enough to share
details of this space with you.

Here is what Oona wrote:
“I bought an allover patterned stencil 
called “Florentine Damask” from 
Royal Design Studio
 Having never used a stencil
before I found the “how to” section very helpful.

The paints I used were regular latex. 

I rolled the walls using a regular paint roller with a 1/4″ nap 
and used a small, foam roller when applying the 
stencil paint.

My colors were:

base paint: Ralph Lauren “Natural Canvas”
stencil paint: Ralph Lauren “Edwardian Linen”"
For the mirrored medicine cabinet above the sink,
Oona mounted the gold frame to the wall 
and just the mirror opens by pressure touch,
exposing the shelves inside. 
Adding the depth of the frame to the depth of the studs gave 
her enough room to recess it.

If you’re reading,

Thank you for sharing the details, Oona!
With a little help from her friend, Lisa,
she created one of the most divine
bathroom transformations I have ever seen.

Thank you Lisa for sharing
her bath with me to begin with. 

Oona doesn’t have a blog
so please take a second to thank her or
let her know what you think of her remodel below.

It seems Oona is a true DIYer. 
She even did all the contracting herself!

I’ll be back at a minute after midnight
with my new weekly link party… 

And thank you so much for your comments
and kind words, and waiting patiently
for me to return with a new project.

I feel guilty for abandoning my blog 
these past several days, but it had to be done.

Thanks for understanding.
(I just figured out how to add hearts to my posts…I’ll make you sick of them, soon.)
