I just looked up my first post about our bathroom renovation and was shocked that it was almost exactly 1 year ago! Wow! I doesn’t feel like it’s been a year. I guess that’s partly because we had a usable toilet almost the whole time, a usable shower after 5 months (the most labor intensive part of the project) and a usable sink and vanity after 8 months.
Before I go on to show pictures of the finished bathroom, I need to reminisce a little. Here’s a look at where we started:
Remember that this room was originally a bedroom and was turned into a master bathroom and laundry room at last minute and when the house flippers ran out of money. (We’re assuming anyway.) Before layout and our plans for the renovation:
We pretty much stuck to that plan except some of the scale seems to be off here. The shower is 4′ x 5′ as it says but we decided not to do a door or a built in bench. Also, we decided we only wanted one sink on the vanity. (Marriage Advice: Have 1 sink in the bathroom. Learn to take turns!)
OK, HERE ARE THE PICTURES OF THE FINISHED BATHROOM!! (Yes, I’m yelling!)
New door installed between the bathroom and laundry room.
Baseboards on, caulked and painted.
Our hope for this room was that it would be a totally relaxing spa-like space.
