KIDS’ BATHROOM REVEAL WITH A CLASSIC WHITE VANITY

I’m finally sharing this finished bathroom! When I gave this space a small, low budget makeover last Summer, I was over the moon with how it turned out, but I can tell you, with these few new updates that we added – a classic white vanity, new mirror and traditional style toilet, I am completely over the moon for real this time…I always new I wanted a knew vanity with storage to give our growing kids some more space in here. You can read about this new piece here and also see last Summer’s reveal here. Many of you know me well by now, and it’s not unusual for me to keep making changes to our home. I suppose I see this little makeover as a two-part series, and I honestly could not be happier with the results. In Part One, I spent less than $500 to give it some new life, and now, in Part Two, we spent around $1000 to complete the look. Not so bad for a brand new space.  Keep reading below to see more of how this little space turned out – let me know what you think in the comments below! *Affiliate links are provided in this post for your shopping convenience – see my full disclosure policy here.

First of all, here’s a reminder of last Summer’s look…Beautiful bathroom with blue grasscloth wallpaper, black vanity and gold painted mirror makes this space classic and chic.And here we are today. I love the chic, coastal vibe this gorgeous vanity brings to this space and the new mirror is light, airy and crisp.Our kids' bathroom gets a chic, coastal update with a classic white vanity and marble countertop for an elegant and traditional look.

We were concerned at first, thinking it would feel smaller in here because the new vanity has storage and is closed underneath. In fact, we actually achieved the complete opposite effect. The white is crisp and clean and because it’s closed, it enlarges the bathroom visually.Our kids' bathroom gets a chic, coastal update with a classic white vanity and marble countertop for an elegant and traditional look.Our kids' bathroom gets a chic, coastal update with a classic white vanity and marble countertop for an elegant and traditional look.The only thing we haven’t done yet is attach the toilet paper holder to the vanity. I’m torn on this one. I really don’t want to make holes in this beautiful piece, so I may look for a standing one, even though they’re not my favorite. I’m on the fence right now, so I’ll wait and see what I can come up with.Our kids' bathroom gets a chic, coastal update with a classic white vanity and marble countertop for an elegant and traditional look.

This is a marble counter, and for any of you who have the same, you know that water can etch a marble surface. The one good thing, is with the beautiful veining in this one, it doesn’t show much at all.Our kids' bathroom gets a chic, coastal update with a classic white vanity and marble countertop for an elegant and traditional look.Something to consider if you’re thinking of going with marble in the bathroom. Some people are perfectly fine with the patina a marble counter can take on, and other people hate it! Make sure you do your homework before you buy…

I love the traditional lines, and the price was unbeatable. It’s elegant, and clean lined, and adds subtle character to the space. Even toilets should be beautiful!

They love that the top drawer pops open and holds their toothbrushes – something every bathroom vanity should have! I’m a stickler about keeping them off of the counter top and out of sight!

It’s also the main bathroom for guests to use as well, so keeping it more grown up looking and something that compliments the rest of our home, is a key ingredient in the design of this space.

    Tamara—this is absolutely gorgeous!! It DOES look bigger, more “important “ and very coastal chic! It was stunning before but somehow even better now!

      Mary thank you so much! We love how much brighter it feels and it’s so fresh! Unfortunately I don’t have the source, but I can tell you they’re ceramic and have a marble look – they were very inexpensive! I wish I could help you more than that! Thanks for stopping by to say hi!

    Love, love LOVE. It’s so clean looking! I heard that Barbra Streisand went to Martha Stewart’s house for dinner once, and about a week later, Martha received a gift box from Barbra. It was a standing toilet paper holder; Barbra was dismayed she had to reach so far!

      Thank you so much, I’m thrilled you like it!!! That is the funniest thing ever!! Hilarious! The good thing is this bathroom is way too small to have to reach lol! But I am really thinking I’ll have to go that route!!

    You could use a deep basket with handles and place a rod through them to hold toilet paper rolls. The rest of the basket could hold extras. Can’t remember where I saw this but thought it would work for you. I love your home.
