As I mentioned earlier this month, I partnered with 1StopLighting.com to give my small master bathroom a refresh. For a long time, it felt like my bathroom was stuck at a midway point and had no clear design direction and while I liked the main bathroom elements, subway tile in the shower and hex tile on the floors and bathroom vanity. Overall everything felt flat. I love pretty lighting and knew finding the perfect bathroom vanity lighting would help give the entire room an updated look.
After putting looking at bathroom lighting ideas on 1StopLighting.com I was able to narrow down the style I had in mind, a modern gold light fixture. I love how easy is to navigate their site and filter down to the light fixture style you had in mind. In addition to offering amazing lighting deals, they also have a large selection of mirror styles. I put together a few lighting and mirror combinations, which help me create the design plan for my bathroom, read more about my design plan here.
Here’s a quick recap of my bathroom design plans, update lighting, mirror, and bathroom hardware. Paint the bathroom vanity black and add trim on the drawers to create more depth, in addition, freshen room up with paint and a new shower curtain and new bathroom hardware.
I’m so excited to share how my updated Master Bathroom and how we tackled this project on a budget! I can’t get over how incredible my bathroom feels and looks, it went from so-so to inviting and feeling more luxe! I’m so excited to share the process of transforming this little space. Here’s a quick reminder of how my bathroom looked. Not bad, but in real life felt like a snoozefest.
MASTER BATHROOM BEFORE
MASTER BATHROOM AFTER
To give my bathroom vanity more depth, I added 1x2 lattice on the flat panel drawers giving the appearance of shaker style. This is a great way to add visual interest on otherwise boring drawers. I used wood filler to fill in the gaps of the wood trim and also filled the holes in the old cabinet hardware.
Next, I tapped off the area in my bathroom and painted the cabinet Tricorn Black by Sherwin Williams, I used to paint in one primer. Although I love grey cabinets, this color felt off in my bathroom and I knew going with black cabinets would help ground the area and create depth in this small bathroom. I gave my vanity three coats of paint, lightly sanded before each coat and waiting for 24 hrs before applying the last coat of paint.
We made a 12th-hour decision to replace the old vanity top with a pretty stunning Scintillante Bianco Polished Marble. The new counter is amazing, it has a clean white background with flecks of grey throughout and almost sparkles. Next, my husband installed the new bathroom faucet. I love mixing metals and adore the look of polished chrome paired with the gold elements in my bathroom.
After the sink and vanity were completed, Hasani installed the new light fixture. The light is incredible and feels modern and gives off the amazing light! I love how it looks paired with the gold mirror, also from 1StopLighting. I’m waiting for one key element in my bathroom to arrive, the new roman shade. I went back and forth between a natural roman shade and a fabric woven shade, I ultimately decided on a simple natural shade that will complement the woven baskets in my bathroom. below is a closer look.

I adore the gold glided mirror, the curve is so pretty! I should mention the mirror is very heavy and a two person job in install.
I love the gold matte light fixture, it feels modern and polished, I also love the generous size of the shades. When it comes to bathroom lighting, I'm all about frosted glass. It's so easy on the eyes. We also installed a swing-out vanity mirror! Perfect for shaving, applying makeup and doing my eyebrows.
