Bathroom Reno

I am gearing up for a major shopping day tomorrow!  My step brother and his wife have hired me to help renovate both bathrooms in their house; the master and the guest bath.  They are hoping to put their starter home on the market shortly, so fixing up the bathrooms is on the list of things to do. 

They needed a little help and direction as to where to start and weren't sure what fixtures to choose, colors, tile, accessories, etc.  Plus, as smart as they both are, hands on work is just not their forte!  So they put me in charge of the design and budget.

For this project, we are on a limited budget of $1500 for 2 bathrooms.   We will do the work in 2 weekends hopefully.  Guest bathroom this weekend, and master bath next weekend.

Here's a sneak peak of a few things I will be picking up tomorrow:

Benjamin Moore:  Glacier Blue 1653
(A gorgeous shade of grayish-blue)

So that's all I am going to show you for now!  We want to keep it fairly neutral, as they are trying to sell the house, not live in it forever.  Of course, it has to have some style though ;)   The rest of my shopping list for tomorrow consists of:
-medicine cabinet
-door knobs
-t.p. holder
-towel ring
-goose neck faucet
-tile adhesive
-cement board

I will have before and after shots to share once we finish this bathroom, and then we will be on to the next!
