Julie remodeled her dark, out-dated half bath right after moving in, but it took awhile to finish the room completely. She moved on to other projects until she found the perfect chandelier to cap off the space. That motivated her to finally put the last finishing touches in place.

And we're so glad she did! Julie's renovation shows what you can do to brighten even the most cramped of small spaces.

To maximize the tiny bath, they first removed the existing vanity and wall-to-wall countertop, replacing it with an airier pedestal sink. They also removed the cabinet doors, creating open and accessible shelving for their necessities. Chrome baskets keep everything organized and pretty.

The final step was adding the lighting, fresh flowers, some prints, and a new mirror.

Thanks Julie! Nice work, and congratulations on your (completely) finished bathroom!
