New Homestead: Bathroom Progress

While we were painting this weekend, my Dad and brother were hard working on the bathroom.  These are some progress pictures.  I forgot to take one of the ceiling now that they fixed it as well, but you get the idea.  Just to remind you what we're working with and where we want to end up, here's a list of everything we wanted to get done from the beginning:

{1} Remove the shower & door and install a shower/tub unit.
{2} Remove the extra shower head (weird).
{3} Replace linoleum flooring since it's bad anyway, with tile.
{4} Replace toilet seat.
{5} Remove towel bar and possibly replace with ring? or just new towel bar.
{6} Try to salvage and paint existing mirror.  We're not sure this is going to work, but want to try first.
{7} Replace yellowed vanity top and budget faucet.
{8} Paint vanity and possibly replace hardware.

Not shown:
{9} Cover ceiling with bead-board.

I know a few of you are going to love the wide planked green ceiling, but I need you to trust me here.  This bathroom used to be a porch, so the ceiling is not exactly...."energy efficient".  To put it nicely, there are cracks between the slats and a bunch of cob webs, and I just can't be have'n that. mK?

This is the "before":

And this is the "in progress".
This is a HUGE improvement from where we started. 

When we decide what color we're painting the bathroom the tongue and grove will be painted the same color.  We're going to leave the beam exposed, and the ceiling will be white, exciting I know.

No, I wasn't drinking when I took this picture, the wall is just slanted.  Remember this bathroom started off as a porch, so there were quite a few corrections to be made on a budget.

It's light, and white, and it gives us a new clean slate.

Again, the "before":

And the "in progress":

New white vanity with a new polished chrome faucet. Love!

The tile guys are coming on Friday, and hopefully I'll be painting the vanity on Saturday afternoon! {fingers crossed on this one, I really don't know how long it's going to take.}

Here is the direction we {I} hope to start heading once the tile is done.

I'm not getting dark tile, but I am going to paint the vanity Urbane Bronze, so it will have this feel in the room.

For the shelves to the right of the tub, I want to do something pretty and inviting.

Love this for towels against the wall to the left of the shower.

  4. I tell you what, a great bathroom is just like the best thing to have in your house...seriously think about how much time you have to spend in those things (um, getting ready and stuff) and how much more pleasant it is when it's one of your fave rooms in the house??? It's gonna be Ka-razy good! (c;


Glad you're here! Let me know what ya think.
