well, we are remodeling our guest bathroom. it’s the first bathroom we’ve ever remodeled.
when brian and i moved into our house a few years ago, the first things we did were put in a bluestone patio and the BIGGEST sliding glass door we could find!
these photos so don’t do justice to the backyard (reminding me i should snap a few new ones). you can see more photos in our home tour here.
needless to say, it was a BIG job. and our hard work has really been enjoyed, so with the bathroom remodel, we’re making sure to do it right.
our house is of the 1940′s, so i want to keep that vintage feel. i really adore the classic sink and tub…
but that light fixture and mirror are ready to go.
we started the project by ripping up the linoleum floor. underneath two layers of terrible linoleum, we found hard wood floors that matched the rest of the house. so we thought we’d remove everything to the hard wood and refinish the floors.
but we found the wood all around the toilet had rotted and needed to be removed.
we thought about just replacing those rotted boards, but after a bit more excavation, the damage was not very repairable. and as we tried to remove the staples from the wood floor, each broke into tiny pins that became impossible to get out.
and we really had our hearts set on vintage black and white hexagon mosaics…so they new tile is on it’s way!
and our bathroom currently looks like this.
i kind of like the rustic barn board look, but know that wouldn’t keep with the style of our home. so instead, we’ll add our beautiful black and white mosaic floor…
and then get started on replacing the yellow tile. we still haven’t decided on what to replace it with yet.
any suggestions for wall tile or bathroom remodels?
*BATHROOM REMODEL UPDATE*
Here is the finished bathroom. Complete with just what I’d imagined…white subway tile, gray grout, and classic black and white hexagon floor tiles. And I managed to find an embroidered bird shower curtain…it completely makes the room elegant but very quaint.
It was all a lot of work to do ourselves and it took about 3 months to complete, but that just makes us appreciate it even more!
ps. we’re keeping the hula girl shower curtain (just moving it into the other bathroom). those hula girls were the first thing brian and i ever bought together!
i hope you had a wonderful weekend!
