beach house reveal ~ day 3

Hey there! Join me on Instagram and Pinterest to connect on all the behind the scenes action!


Welcome to Day 3 of the Beach House Reveal! For those popping in, you can check out the first post ever way back here.

I’ve actually been getting several questions and thought I should clarify a few things. This is a home we have fixed up to be a vacation rental and we are currently working on the official rental site available through We are planning to get the link up and going by the end of this week. We have a couple small things to wrap up over the next few weeks (adding wifi, that kind of small stuff), but it IS available immediately.


Ok, so onto today’s reveal. We moving on upstairs and taking a left into the main bathroom. As you saw in yesterday’s post, the before pictures are pretty awesome when it comes to “befores”!  ;-) The showerhead on the main shower was actually half-way down, like kid height. Weird. And the corner shower was just a tiny little cave…I’m 5’3″ and it felt tiny tiny tiny. The whole room just felt so closed in and small.




sorry for the out of focus pict. :-/




So, what better way to open it up and make it all amazing than by doing this.






Doesn’t it feel so much more light and open now?!

We chose to keep the vanity, mirrors, and faucets.

We added a new light –

New flooring. It was originally 12×12 tile with cracked grout.

New shower.

Lucite bench –

Towels- TJMaxx

Bath Mat – Fred Meyer

I don’t know about you, but seriously, every time I walk into this bathroom

I just envision a bridal party getting ready for the big day or something! Lol :-)


Since my father-in-law is a builder, we hired this out,

so no diy tips for you here. It was worth hiring out though!

It’s finished dimensions are around 42″ x 72″. I need to double check that one!






Next we move onto the upper master bedroom. When you reach the top of the stairs you take a right and go straight into this room. I’ll admit it right now….this room is my favorite. It has a view of the water and high vaulted ceilings. Spacious, yet cozy. I love it.








 DIY Upholstered Headboard

Refinished Craigslist Dresser and Nightstand

Art from World Maps book at Half Price Books

Chair and Blanket Basket from The Farm Chicks Show in Spokane, WA

 Frames and Lamps – TJMaxx

Wood and Iron End Table – Hobby Lobby

I will be doing a budget recap shortly,

but just to give you and idea, you are looking at about $1000 here before the cost of the mattress.









I hope you have enjoyed these reveals! Tomorrow will be the Bunk Room!

    • VRBO was SO amazing for this vacation rental and made it super easy. I don’t think I could do another project like that anytime soon. It took about 3 months of non-stop shopping and diy projects…..not to mention being a stay at home mom! So thank you!!!
