What were we thinking? Bathroom Remodel #1

For five years we have lived in this house and I have HATED the master bathroom. Original to the 70s when it was built, the turquoise floor, wall tile, toilet, sinks, and vanity counter were pretty h a r d on the eyes! However, even for me who is c.o.n.s.t.a.n.t.l.y. thinking about what to remodel I was way too overwhelmed to think about tackling this project. Look at the picture and you can see why. But, alas, we were backed into the proverbial corner as, piece by piece, the floor tile starting coming up, the vanity doors started falling off, the drains broke. Oh the horror!

Finally my husband said that it was time to start thinking about remodeling the bathroom. So, the journey began of brainstorming ideas, searching the internet, looking at vanities, etc. A very time consuming journey that started one way and, by the time it was done, did a total about face.

  


Nice looking wall don't you think?


So the destruction began with ripping down the turquoise wall tile that functioned like wainscoating. Ahh, I LOVE demo!




Even now as I'm looking at these pictures I am breathing a nice, contented sigh of relief that all of this old stuff is G O N E!



We carted it all out to the front porch and would you believe...



That the Habitat Restore came and took all this junk? I gotta say that I thought even they would not have a use for it, but I 'm glad they did. I much prefer to reuse than throw in the junk.

Stay tuned for Bathroom Remodel #2...the adventure continues.

  1. Can't wait to see the finished product. We just got done with our bathroom remodel. It took about 4 weeks, longer than anticipated, but worth the wait.
