Imagine this. You’re house searching and you fall in love with a home as soon as the realtor opens the front door. She begins by telling you it has everything you were hoping for…a fixer upper with great bones, 100-year-old heart pine floors, high ceilings, wainscoting. Then she whispers in my ear “By the way, the main bathroom is down the hall from the master bedroom”.
I could hear the brakes screech in my mind…
Wait. Backup. You’re kidding, right?
At this point, it wasn’t a deal breaker but it certainly was something I could use to negotiate on the price.

Joan Lewis says
Hi. . I just found this & wondered what the dimensions of the spare bedroom was?
We would like to try something like this in our 1956 house.
Tricia @ Simplicity in the South says
Hi Joan! The previous guest bedroom was about 11 x 11 before the remodel. I hope that helps and good luck with your remodel.
Hi! What color grout did you use on the shower subway tile?
Tricia @ Simplicity in the South says
We used Mapei grout in Pearl Gray for the shower tile. It’s sold at Lowes and we got the one that has the integrated sealer. We used the same color for our pantry floor tile too because we love the color so much.
I am new to your blog and am amazed at you and your husband’s talent! I was going to ask if he was a pro and then I saw you got a call from HGTV, I guess that answers my question! I am so excited for you! I hope it all works out. You bathroom looks fantastic! (I’m not sure how old this post is and I’m in Canada so if you are already on tv congrats! Lol!)
Suhana Morgan says
This is a wonderful hacking tutorial You share that gives me a piece of resourceful information. A proper guideline of bathroom renovation.
Joette Tavernise says
Tricia, love reading all that you write and show. I think HGTV needs you. Good luck! I do have a question. I wondered why Spartanburg,SC was at the bottom of your blog. Is that where you are?!
Best of luck!

Wall makeup mirrors are so useful. What source for very large magnification, fairly large, reasonably priced, sturdy, reasonably priced wall makeup mirrors have you located?
Hi Fern! Yes, a makeup mirror is so nice to have. The one I have is affordable, has held up well over the past 2+ years and can be found in this link. It’s 8.5″ round, has a magnification mirror on the other side, and extends up to 13.5″. This mirror was a close contender and it has a larger 9.8″ mirror. But my favorite is one that I saw in a hotel that I stayed at recently. I love it because it lights up and has a plugin so it doesn’t have to be hardwired. It’s 9.75″ but part of that has the light ring but it’s still a nice size. You can find that one here.
Luanne Smith says
Lovely! We are in the process of beginning a bathroom remodel. Can you give me info on the shower faucet system? Thank you!
Trish Cree says
Hi! I LOVE your bathroom!!! We are in the midst of redoing ours and are using many of the same elements. The patterned shower niche will actually be our flooring and I will be using subway tile in the shower. Just trying to figure out a coordinating shower floor simple pattern that complements, not overwhelms. . . suggestions welcome!! Main reason for my comment though – WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR TOILET PAPER HOLDER?!?! I LOVE IT!!!!! thank you! xo trish.
Diena Cameron says

Love! And can’t wait for the tutorial on the mirrors! Exactly what I’ve been wanting and figured there was a way! Hope to see posted soon!
Thank you, Carrie! I posted the mirror tutorial today 🙂
Wow, so beautiful! I love all the shiplap, and how bright your new master bath is. Great job!!
Thank you, Mellisa! It still amazes me every time I walk in the room that it’s the same space
Sam C says
Where is the bath mat from?
Hi Sam! I found the black and white runner in front of the vanity at Home Depot. It’s no longer in stock at Home Depot online but can be found on Amazon for less. The small white in front of the shower came from the clearance section at Marshalls last month.
Lillian B. says
So pretty! What color is the vanity? It looks like a gray with blue.
Thank you, Lillian! The color of the vanity is Gibraltar by Sherwin Williams.
I can’t wait to see how you made the wooden chandelier. I’ve been wanting one just like it since I saw it on Fixer Upper. The whole bathroom remodel is fabulous! Kudos to both of you!
Husband and wife team with amazing taste and multitudes of talent…PRICELESS…job well done!
This is gorgeous, Tricia! I can’t believe it’s the same space!
Thank you, Katie! It’s our new favorite room in the house.
Your bedroom bathroom is gorgeous. Everything about it is modern, fresh and bright. I really love it!!
Thank you so much! That’s just the type of compliment I was hoping for.
Stacy G. says
Drop dead gorgeous! Nice job!
