Bathroom Makeover Before and After

When Amanda from Mommy is Coocoo shared her bathroom makeover after, I had serious bathroom envy. That doesn’t sound right, does it?  But read on, you’ll get it.


And when she shared the ‘before’ pictures, I may have involuntarily shuddered. There’s a reason you’ve never seen our upstairs bathrooms. It’s the stuff nightmares are made of. Amanda understands because she had a nightmare bathroom too…
