We eeked three full bathrooms into the Myrtle House which meant that if we were going to have a master bath (uh, duh) then it was going to have to be a small one. I have always loved small spaces - we did buy the Brooklyn Street House after-all - but figuring out how to fit two sinks, a shower/tub combo, and a closet entrance was a little tricky. In the end, this once pantry is now a cute little master bathroom.

We didn't do anything super fancy in our bathroom and stuck with affordable finishes. For the shower, we used subway tile that we installed ourselves. Tiling, once you get the hang of it, is not hard, just really time-consuming. By doing the labor ourselves, the project only cost about $200 (which is about the same price as a shower surround).
Since our bathroom is quite narrow, we found the most shallow vanities we could find. These are similar. The depth with the bowl is about 19", but then the cabinet is only 12" whereas most vanities are 24" deep at least. That gave us a lot more legroom. To make them look a little less "box store," I changed out the hardware for pretty glass knobs. I found the mirrors on Craigslist for $15 for the pair. Originally they were gold, but we painted them a glossy white to bring out the beaded detail. The sconces were a Habitat Restore purchase at $20 for the pair.
For the flooring, we opted for sheet vinyl, as with all of the bathrooms. I have this hatred of grout (we were constantly bleaching/painting the grout in our old bathroom) and it drives me crazy. We have had one little gouge in the vinyl, but other than that, it has been great. For added storage, we purchased this cute medicine cabinet and it adds just the right amount of extra space.
