Are house projects ever really complete? Maybe not. At my house, there is always some tweaking going on! So, although there are a few things yet to do, I have decided to go ahead and show you our newly remodeled bathroom.
If you remember, the need for a new floor kind of started the ball rolling on this project.
The old floor was worn and had mysterious staining under the surface, so no amount of cleaning and scrubbing could make it look good.
|BEFORE: old floor|
Ron installed our new floor using SnapStone® tiles from Lowe's.
|AFTER: new floor|
With all of the fixtures removed in order to lay the floor, this was the time to replace the toilet with a water-saving model that Ron wanted...as well as add the tongue-and-groove style wainscoting.
You have no idea how long we stood in Lowe's debating whether we should go with the wainscoting. Pros: we love the look of this wainscoting in our farmhouse...and it was within our project budget...and the easiest time to install is when the room is basically empty. Cons: it would add time (installation and painting) to what we needed to be a quick project! (Have I mentioned that Ye Olde Farmhouse has only ONE bathroom?) In the end, we decided to add the wainscot...and we are so glad that we did! Woo hoo!
Those were the major things that we (mostly Ron!) did.
We also repainted the bathtub...
repainted the medicine cabinet...
and stitched up a new vanity skirt and lid cover.
Have a look around!
Unfinished business: making a curtain, ordering the toilet paper holder, and hanging something on that empty wall. But that's all fun stuff. :-)
Thanks for sharing our project with us!
