1. i am such a fan of that floor update! it looks SO good! i would love to do it in our bathroom but the tile is textured and i don’t think it would work as well. BOOOO! and i love the mirror in there!

    1. I just ordered a different type of vinyl that is made for floors and outdoor applications and I’ll try it out on some random leftover tiles and I’ll let you know 😉

    2. Yes, the floor update is amazing! Secretly hoping I find a tan and white floor like this in our house hunting so that I can do the same thing.

      1. I hope you find one too but i haven’t seen many tan checkerboard floors. But even if you find a black and white checkerboard floor you could do the same 😉

    You can do anything girl! It looksgreat!

  3. I love the matt black facet and the mirror shape – unexpected! Looking really good. Have you decided on the pendants yet? Have a great Monday.

    1. Thank you Toni. I’m going to finally decide on the pendants after the electrician came and can confirm/hook me up with the outlets. I’m still not 100% what can be done. I hate the wait.

    HAVE MERCY ! Anyone who can decorate like a super hero, wield power tools, mother children, wife a husband (making up my own verbage as I go ) AND wear faux leather leggings , will have no problem having an IKEA warranty stricken null and void should you ever need to !

    1. LOL, well if you make it sound like this Diane, I think I will have to go upstairs right now and drill the darn holes 😉 Too funny!

  5. Looks fantastic! Go for those handles, girl. You ARE superwoman!

    I love the vanity and faucet! Can’t wait to get our bathroom remodeled now!

    1. I don’t think you would regret it if you get the Ikea vanity. It’s a good one!

  7. Jennifer@The Chronicles of Home says:

    Everything is looking so great! I still can’t get over that floor. Checking out your leggings now… 🙂

    1. I’m not kidding when I say that I live in them. My brother’s wife in Germany bought them too and says the same thing. They are awesome.

    I like the white sink stopper. I again chose a gold faucet and it comes with the gold, but I want a white one like yours. Hey go drill the holes right now.

    1. That white stopper comes with the sink actually and is kind of the reason I wanted the sink 😉

  9. Re: the ring pulls – do it! As you say, if you successfully sawed a sofa in half and rebuilt it, ring pulls will be a breeze. My condo is in chaos right now because I tackled hanging more art and there are potential groupings all over the floor. I need to take my own advice and start hanging stuff!

    1. I think I will do it today 😉 Have fun hanging your art

  10. Hi Julia,
    I have had that amazing vanity for the last four years and… I just learned reading your post that I voided my warranty four years ago when I drilled those four drawers 🙂 !!! Well only seven more years to go…
    BTW, since I speak from experience: I have done it and it is still standing to the test of time, a not so careful husband and two kids… So drill away!
    Your bathroom looks fabulous 🙂

    1. Oh that’s so so good to know. Thanks a bunch for letting me know.

  11. Lisa @ Shine Your Lighta says:

    I can’t believe the warranty is void if you add ring pulls! That’s insane. The ring pulls will look amazing. Go for it fearless DIY blogger!!

    1. Right? I think that is insane too. It’s not like I’m messing with the mechanics of the drawers!

  12. Gretchen@BoxyColonial says:

    Looking so great in there! Hope doing the ring pulls went smoothly (assuming you’ve done them by now; I’m out of town, so I’m trying to catch up!)

    It’s looking absolutely fabulous Julia!!

  14. Maggie @ Maggie Overby Studios says:

    Oh it looks so pretty! If I weren’t in a rental my bathrooms would be getting a major update after seeing this.

  15. Hi Julia. I am looking to buy a Ikea vanity for my bathroom makeover. Is it easy to mount on the wall? And is the quality good?

    1. Hi there! I was able to almost hang it by myself. Just briefly needed my husband to hold it in place. And I personally love the quality. So much better than before

  16. hi there! this looks great! I came across your post looking for a solve for our ikea sink — we went with the same look as you (matte black faucet) but i failed to get matching black for the sink drain, or white like you did! Are those pieces you purchased from IKEA, or elsewhere? Would love tips! The white looks so much nicer than the chrome against the black… My email : [email protected]

    Wonderful floor update! Also, I super like the black faucet. It looks so lovely and it complimented the overall look of the bathroom. Such an inspiration!
