I am thrilled to FINALLY start a bathroom remodel. This is the main floor bathroom that my kids have used for the 16 years we have lived in this house. It was not in great shape when we moved in and I did about every cosmetic band-aid I could think of to make it work. The time has come to say goodbye...those birds will have a new spot to perch.
These are the BEFORE photos. The project will take awhile. We are having a contractor do it. I will be posting on it periodically as it progresses. (looking in from the door, double sinks on left, shower on right)
Blech. I hate this old bathtub/shower. I can't get it clean anymore and the oddball shelf at the back of the tub will disappear. It is also a really shallow tub so when you take a bath the water level is never very deep.
The built in cabinet is going away. I will have a new cabinet built and I am going to go with a pedestal sink. The new cabinet will run the length of the wall under the window. Originally this bathroom had a similar cabinet to what I am putting in.
Toilet. Beige. It is impossible to find a toilet lid that matches the rest of the toilet. The cabinet beside it is a floor to ceiling linen closet. I can't lose that much storage so I am having a similar piece built in the same spot. It will be shallower tho so the toilet is no longer in a dark little corner.
This is another view of that linen cabinet. It is attached to the cabinet where the two double sinks are. Where the tile and the countertop meet is wood trim that I painted cream years ago. It is looking shabby. I will be glad to see it go.
I am keeping this original mirror and light fixture. I like that it is framed in with the window trim.
I will report in as we progress. I have a whole stash of vintage goodies that will be put to use in the new bathroom. I can't wait to get this project started!
