This post has been a long time coming! We actually finished the bathroom months ago and I’m just now sitting down to share with you. The bathroom has really become one of my favorite rooms. It’s simple, clean and its design prohibits clutter. Hallelujah!
Here are the before shots of the bathroom. Not terrible, but it did have carpet on the floor and avocado colored tile, soooo. Yes. It was time for an upgrade. It’s hard to convey the sink situation in pictures. The counter top was some kind of almond colored wonder that absorbed the color of EVERYTHING you allowed to sit on it. Blue bracelet, blue counter. Yellow soap dispenser, yellow counter. You get the picture. The sink itself matched the avocado shower and was recessed. This caused water to hit the bowl with force and splash out the sides, get on the carpet, smell bad… you see where this is going.
We knew there were certain aspects of the remodel we could not do ourselves, plumbing, electrical etc. But we found if we were willing to do a little demo, paint, trim and tile treatment we could accomplish the renovation and stay within a VERY budget price. I designed the layout, selected the toilet (Calvin replaced the toilet with help from a friend!), sinks, paint, trim and tile. I chose clean, well priced fixtures and used barn lighting to tie the entire thing together. We chose to install medicine cabinets to hold our items rather than having a cluttered counter top.
And finally, everything came together and it’s so peaceful, and calm and old school and NOT cluttered.
