Welcome to “The extremely WAAAAAAY before pics” of my Master Bathroom.
Can you believe I’ve never shared this room with you guys?
Come to think of it, I haven’t shared most of my house with y’all. What is wrong with me?! I guess I’m embarrassed to show all these horrible “before” pics without any new “after” pics to use as my rebuttal.
So anyway, today I’m going to give you a tour of my Master Bath.
Overall it’s a really nice bathroom. It’s HUGE and has nice dark cabinets. I also love the garden tub.
But for starters, there isn’t any real storage. I had to put up this metal shelf to hold all our towels. Eventually I’d like to add some type of nice big built-ins or some cabinets with doors. But for now, this is working just fine.
We obviously are having a decorating crisis going on. In actuality we haven’t decorated at.all. in here. I just threw down several bath rugs that I already had from our previous homes.
Also, see those lovely big windows above the tub? They are textured to hide the view. OR SO I THOUGHT! Last night I randomly decided to test this camo theory. I turned on the lights in the bathroom and I had my husband stand in there while I went outside. It was about 10pm so it was really dark outside…
Oh my freaking gosh. You can’t make out our faces through the textured glass, but you can definitely see our body outlines and features. Ben even pulled his shirt up and I could totally make out where his nipples and chest hair are. Then he went outside and I flashed him, and he said he could totally see the shape and outline of my boobs.
Awesome. So freaking awesome. I’ve assumed these windows were “safe” for six flippin’ months people! I’m sure my neighbors behind us as well as next door have really enjoyed the peep show!
Doh! So now I get to buy blinds because there is no way I’m walking around naked in there at night anymore. How embarrassing!
Moving right along… “Nothing to see here, people. Keep on moving…”
On the left is my sink. It’s lower than Ben’s sink. Kind of annoying. I wish I had a tall sink too, but I do get more counter space.
The massive amounts of hair bows are my daughters, not mine! I make hair bows, so she’s got loads of them. And since I do her hair in my bathroom each morning it made more sense to put them in my bathroom.
On the right is Ben’s sink and straight ahead at the double doors is the entrance to the bathroom. The door to the right of the double doors is where our toilet is.
Here’s another shot of the bathroom standing at the entrance.
I put some potpouri stuff from the dollar store in this glass jar on my window sill:
Eventually I’m going to spray paint some of the balls some bright colors.
And I’ve got these two canvases hanging on the wall in the toilet room. They are from Target (on clearance!).
Here’s where our comode sits:
And finally, in closing, I’m going to leave you with the very best part about the Master Bath:
When you are sitting on the John, you can see straight to the Master Bedroom door. It’s really awesome when you’ve got your pants around your ankles and you are all spread-eagle and then one of your kids pokes their head in your room. Hello totally naked crotch shot! Of course, we should probably go tinkle with the little toilet room door shut, but still! Who would design a toilet like this?!
Let’s just say there’s been more than one compromising situation regarding my son and myself on the commode. Hopefully the poor boy can recover and not have woman issues for life.
And there you have it. The “Before the before” Master Bathroom tour.
Don’t get too excited thinking a makeover is on it’s way. It isn’t. I’ve got too many other rooms in the works to even think about this bathroom any time soon. But someday. Someday I’ll work on this bathroom and make it the spa-like retreat that it should be. But for now, the only makeover it’s getting is me remembering to shut the dang door when I poop.
