Another look at the master bathroom

Back to the masterbath. Lovin’ it.  Especially in these calm gray tones.  Ahhhhh.  Almost zen like.

Big soaking tub
All that tub needs is some bubbles and a glass of wine!

It wasn’t always so peaceful.  The last step in a really great renovation experience was picking the paint colors.  I said gray. But Clay, my really great contractor, said all the different woods needed to pop.  I’m easily convinced when it comes to colors so I went with pop:

So we lived with it for about six weeks.  Yes, the wood popped, but I needed calm.  I got a bunch of color chips, took Terry’s and Michelle’s advice and now it’s two lovely lovely calm shades of gray.  (no, no,no, not like the book)

Cloud pictures



I spent hours going through shelter magazine, catalogs, and Pinterest before buying anything for the bathroom.  The cloud pictures came from  Love this blog.  If I had an extra bucket of money and lived in Utah, I would hire Kirsten Curtis-Krason. She put cloud pictures that her pilot husband took into Ikea frames.  I said–I have those frames! Took the pics from my back yard, ordered 12″ x 12″ photos online from–so easy!

The candle shelf came from  I showed the plans to Terry and told him what I wanted to put on it.  He went right out and built a protype with scrap wood that he had in the garage.  Then we went to home depot and bought some good stuff.  He built it the same day and I painted it with glossy white spray paint.  If anyone knows Ikea, you know that they have their own special shade of white and it’s not glossy white.  So I convinced him to build another and I painted it the same gray as the bathroom.  Ahhhhhh, lovely.  (And the shiny white candle shelf will be in my dining room someday)

Other than what Terry built, or I had on hand, or could get from Ikea or Target or Home Depot, everything else was ordered online for this renovation.  Contact me and I will give you the details.

  1. I love it !!!!! …and I really love the little candles…sets the mood for the space. Another winner for Perfect.

    • I was wondering if anyone would catch the 50 shades reference. Since you sent me the books, I would certainly expect it! Haven’t yet but there is a nice bottle of wine chilling in the fridge……..
