Well, we’re a little late in running our second before and after article, which should have made it out last night. Unfortunately, a series of events (including a hard drive crash) conspired against us this last week to delay the post.
… Perhaps you can think of the delay as a really long drumroll, because this week’s before and after from Kara @ Made 2 Create is absolutely amazing. Take a look at her stunning bathroom makeover that turns a traditional mid-80s era bathroom into a black and white modern marvel.
Based on Kara’s submission, we’ll make a $35 donation to Habitat for Humanity in her honor. Kara will receive a $25 gift card to either Lowes, Home Depot, or Amazon. If she chooses Home Depot, she can add the gift card to one of our Home Depot Coupons for even bigger savings! Congrats, Kara! Thanks for the submission!
There’s still plenty of time to enter our Before and After contest, just send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Black and White Bathroom Upgrade by Kara
My husband and I gutted everything and came up with a new layout. I chose a sophisticated color palette of black, white, chrome, and slate blue. I used brazilian black slate and white subway tiles to create a classy look. 2 shower heads and 2 sinks are sure to keep harmony between my husband and I while the stylish and functional floating shelves add to the spa like feel. Lastly the glass shower screen allows this somewhat small bathroom to appear much bigger!
The Before Pictures…
The (Amazing!) After Pictures
Details, details. details! I have to admit my husband is usually the one focused on fine tuning, I am more of a “big picture” kind of girl. However, there are times when I see the difference the slightest change can make and I remember that truly GREAT design is in the details!
After (the After) Picture
Thanks for One Project Closer
Kara, this is a truly inspiring transformation. We love the black and white modern touches, and the frosted glass really is the perfect finishing touch! Very nice indeed…

Wow! Very nice work Kara. I was immediately struck by how much larger the bathroom looks because of the glass. And I really love the floating shelves.
We need to do a bathroom rehaul and these are great inspiration photos.
(I actually would love to have your “before” bathroom.) 🙂
Woah – awesome makeover. I’ll take it! 🙂
Beautiful! I love the every detail! Great job Kara! 🙂
Beautiful Remodel! Amazing is right!
I love the white tile and the sinks. I especially love the sense of extra space.
Bathroom looks great! Where can I find the vanity that you used?
I echo Dane’s question about the vanity/sink. Where did you get them?
nice job. i love the whole look.
