How’s the bathroom renovation going?

We are continuing to make progress on the bathroom renovation!

Jimmy and his dad finished putting the tile on the walls and installed the new vanity top. Since we had to custom order it (due to the dimensions of our bathroom), it took about a month to come in. We were nervous to see how it would look since we only saw a small sample of the marble in the store. Thankfully, we love it!

Choosing a paint color was tough! Jimmy had originally wanted to go with a light blue, but the walls we already light blue when we moved in, so we were kind of over it. He totally surprised me when he suggested purple, so we made a trip to Lowe’s to check out paint samples.

I put a few paint samples on the walls, and we settled on gothic amethyst by Olympic. Not too purple-y for a bathroom, I think. I’m really excited to see what the walls will look like when we’re done.

Gothic Amethyst

Since we picked a color theme and I had some birthday gift cards, I bought a few new towels, wall art, a shower curtain, and made a DIY decoration. All that’s left is painting the walls and installing fixtures like a towel rack, toilet paper holder, vent, and a new fan. Slowly but surely, we’re getting there!

Edited to add: right after I posted this, I totally noticed I spelled “household” wrong in the graphic at the top of this post, ha! Sorry 🙂



  1. That’s exciting!!! I can’t wait to see the finished bathroom once it’s done. I love the paint choice, and I know that it’s going to look GREAT!
    I finally bought curtains for our bedroom, so that was my latest home improvement project. Only I guess I’m only half done, because I haven’t actually hung the curtains yet. Ha, ha! But still, it’s always fun to see rooms start to come together! 🙂

  2. Hooray for getting it done bit by bit! So good that you love the counter top now that it has arrived! 🙂

  3. Purple is actually my favorite color to see a man wear. It looks really fresh and sharp. I can’t wait to see the final product Allie!

    1. Ohh, I love purple on a guy, too! Jimmy and I were in a friend’s wedding last September and their color theme was purple and gray. Jimmy looked so handsome! Love it!
