Bathroom Remodel at the Ranch

Oh, I love change for the better! I thought I would give you a little update on the Ozona ranch house remodel! The guest bath needed some updating! The house was built in the 1930's by my great-grand parents. It is a cute stucco with screened in porches!

The house had some updates in the 1950's. So it was a cute cheerful yellow bathroom but it needed a little work to freshen things up!

Here is the before photos:
Formica countertops.
There was old propane gas heaters that needed to be removed for safety reasons.
Soooo.... Dad added oak counter tops that he put together using oak flooring pieces.
Here is a closer view of the oak flooring countertops. The tile is from Home Depot and is very economical.
He added in oak floors, retiled and repainted!
Here is the new bathroom!

I thought that the tile looked great with the old Mexico pottery from the 1930's. My great grandmother collected them.
There is a little blue in these tiles and it looks great. We really like how simple and clean the new bath is. Hope y'all have a great day!


  1. Never would have thought of using oak flooring in this way! Beautiful and creative! What a difference you have made in your home. I would love to try this sometime! Thanks for the inspiration!


  2. WOW! That looks amazing, what a difference. I love seeing older houses redone. It looks great.

  3. What a make over! Bet the new bathroom is sporting a great big smile! I have happily just become a friend and follower and hope you will consider same. Plus, it's always nice to hear from a fellow Texan!

  4. Wow, it looks gorgeous! I love the sink, counter top and tile.

    Thanks for stopping by!


  5. Great job, it looks awesome!

  6. What a beautiful makeover, Kelsey! I love the old Mexican pottery and the tile is gorgeous! Is this your family's home? It is just lovely!

  7. Your makeover is success. It really looks clean and uncluttered - so much better. Feels good to get a project finished, doesn't it? Nancy

  8. What a difference, it looks so clean and fresh now! I love the wood scallops near the ceiling, so charming!


Would love to hear from you!
