Bathroom Renovation: The Before and The Inspiration
It has been years coming....but we have finally begun our main bathroom renovation!! When we bought the house, there were three things we needed/wanted to reno. The first was the unfinished basement, the second was the dated kitchen and the third was the nasty main bathroom. The basement and kitchen were both completed within the first 6 months of moving in. This May will be 4 years in this house, I think it may be about time to tackle the bathroom! Now this bathroom has some issues including mold around the bath fixtures and in the shower wall tile grout, the walls are green and in pretty rough shape, the linoleum is pink and blue with green paint splatters, the tub, toilet and sink are all a dirty almond colour and although don't look that bad, the cabinets are a cheap laminate which is slowly chipping away revealing the particle board underneath. With Penny's arrival quickly approaching, it was important to me to get this bathroom cleaned up and looking pretty since we will be spending a lot of time in there bathing and cleaning the cloth diapers. We expect to be done by mid May. So far, the shower has been demoed and the new tub and surround shower has been put in, thanks to Mr. Loonie and our amazing friend. The next step will be replacing the cabinets and counter top which are expected to arrive in 2 more weeks. First, the before shots:
Now, for the inspiration picture:
I love everything about this picture including the hexagon tile, white cabinets, chrome details, bead board wainscotting, dark grey paint job and light counter tops! So my goal is to pretty much re-create this look but I am sure on much less of a budget. I have created a board showing items we have already purchased, diy projects and items on the wish list.
