I am just popping into today because we have some real work to get to. Even though this summer was a blast and we got several projects off the ‘ol todo list, Ive been planning our next major update! We are finally getting around to the upstairs bathroom. I feel like this has been planned for forever, but we are finally ready to start demo this week. While it looks ok, we have come a fair bit from what we started with 3 years ago:
I know that looks scary with all of the warning signs, but its just to tell people there is no running water in the house. Really not much has changed other than we stapled down the floor temporarily and we slapped some paint on the wall.
Still there’s a lot left to be desired here. While it looks ok in pictures, the subfloor is actually rotted beneath that basic vinyl flooring. We have no idea how bad, but it’s fine since we already plan to replace everything. New lighting, tile, floor, vanity top, and fixtures, it’s going to be beautiful.
We have some really cool plans to reuse the mirror and you will have to see what we have in store for that. If you remember earlier this year, I made a mood board to give myself a general idea of what we planned to do with this space.
Now that we are finally ready, it has changed a bit. I want to add more brass into the design to create some warmth. We finished the powder room makeover earlier this year and while we stuck with a pretty traditional design, I want to mix in some more modern lines into this bathroom. The timeline for this whole project is that we hope to have it done by the end of October. And yes, we will be doing all the work ourselves. Here are just some of the projects we have in store:
Rewiring a Light Fixture
Reusing the Mirror (hint: not in it’s current state)
Vanity Makeover and New Top
New Tub installation with Glass Doors
New Wall and Floor Tile
It’s a lot for a small bathroom, but we are so ready for this! Bring on the hammer and demo!
Have you redone a bathroom? Thankfully, we have another shower in the master, but living with one bathroom is going to be an adventure. Stay tuned for all the details!
