Y’all know I love a good home improvement project, and we tackled our biggest one yet…a mini “renovation” on both of our bathrooms. I’m detailing our budget, the process and the final product in this post. As always, leave any questions in the comments below!

The Plan: Molly’s Bathroom
As with most projects you’ve seen on the blog, I like to create an outline before actually buying or physically changing anything. Here was my plan for my bathroom.
Once I settled on a final plan, we got to work!
The Process: Molly’s Bathroom
The bulk of the work in my bathroom came from installing this peel and stick subway tile. We ordered tons of different peel and stick options, tested them out, ripped them down, etc. We finally decided on this white subway tile, and ordered enough to cover the necessary square footage. The process of installing is relatively easy, once you get the hang of it. Be sure you have a ruler, a sharp edge (scissors, exacto knife) and a tool to smooth out the air bubbles + ensure the tile adheres to the wall.
I wanted to add a bit more space within my shower, so we installed this shower curtain rod that curves outward! It’s mounted to the wall, so I don’t have to worry about it crashing down mid-shampoo.
Once the tile was installed, we added this shelf above the toilet. TIP: if you’re drilling into your peel + stick tile, be sure to create little pilot holes so the screws don’t distort or twist the tile.
For hardware, we changed everything to polished chrome…shower rod, faucet, light fixture and toilet paper holder. Installing the faucet by myself was actually easier than I expected! There are some amazing youtube videos to help with installation // plumbing. Just search your faucet manufacturer and you should find a tutorial!
I made the linen cabinet area a bit more cozy, with a soft little rug, some photos and a candle. We also lined the back wall with more peel + stick tile!
Oh, and can’t forget my favorite accessory…the “Lana” woven bowl from my very own brand, Tate + Tiegs.

The Plan: Drew’s Bathroom
Drew’s bathroom is set off to the side of the hallway on the way to our bedroom. We wanted to spice it up a bit, so we made some changes to his space as well!
I was apprehensive that the blue tile would be too blue, but once I saw the sample in person, I was obsessed!
The Process: Drew’s Bathroom
First things first was this adorable blue subway tile! We covered the top half of this back wall and I love the way it turned out.
Since the mirror + light fixture from my bathroom fit so well, we ordered the same for Drew’s! We also replaced his faucet to match with mine.
We installed two floating shelves on the opposite wall, to add a bit of extra storage!
We also replaced the towel ring with a polished chrome version, to tie in the faucet. It’s allllll in the details!
