When you're renovating, sometimes it's the little projects that are the most satisfying. When the team at A Beautiful Mess moved into their new home, the first project they tackled was this practically airplane-sized bathroom. Here it is before the renovation, complete with fake plastic tile, an unsecured linoleum floor, and lots and lots of water damage. This little space was ready for a big change.

This bitty bathroom now has an entirely new look. Much of the room was re-built, thanks to the water damage, and re-orienting the toilet gives you a little more space to stretch out when you're using the loo. Elsie and Emma decided to keep the original sink because "1) it's sorta cute, and 2) we couldn't find another sink that small." Its vintage style is a nice counterpart to the new penny tiles on the wall and hex tile on the floor. The pattern above the tile is handprinted on the wall, for a whimsical touch.

This might be my favorite part of the new bathroom, even though it's not in the bathroom at all: the new (bright yellow!) sliding barn door. It saves floor space over the old swing door, since the new door doesn't need to swing into the kitchen, and brightens up both rooms with a pop of cheerful color.

You can read more about the renovation (and see lots more photos!) on A Beautiful Mess.
