this is a long overdue post… our bathroom renovation is FINALLY complete!
the project was finished in May. we finally had a fully functioning additional bathroom! however, we went without vanity lighting and mirror for about a month. i had to make a difficult design decision and ditch the wall sconces i was so excited to have, in order to keep the standing cabinet that was more practical and necessary. the vanity lighting and mirror were added sometime in June or July.
this was definitely a labor of love project… mike and i invested our time and energy into demolishing the old bathroom and despite not being able to partake in building the new bathroom… we spent countless hours deciding on materials, furniture, color scheme, changing our minds numerous times, hitting design snafus (measure your fixtures!), making last minute decisions to make things work, and perfecting the final touches.
so, what’s left? i still need to paint one of the doors white, and i’m still looking for handles/knobs to replace the ones on the vanity, cabinet and medicine cabinet. aside from that… there isn’t one thing i would change… i’m so happy with how it’s all come together!
i owe a lot of thanks to our friend, Jeremiah, for taking on such a big project all on his own. he replaced the subfloor, laid down the floor tile in the bathroom and laundry room, installed the bathtub, vanity sink, cabinet, toilet, replaced some of the pipes for the toilet, sink, and bathtub plumbing, installed the showerhead and fixtures, put up the drywall, added wainscoting and baseboards in the bathroom and laundry, installed a pocket door and replaced the other door, tiled the bathtub area, and sealed everything. this list doesn’t account for all the obstacles that got in our way… we hit several snafus but managed to work together to overcome them all! Jeremiah, (if you’re reading this) you did a great job and i couldn’t be happier! and everything still works! hehehe… and i also have to thank Jeremy for handling all the electrical repairs in our home. for this project, he wired up and installed the lighting over the vanity sink, toilet, bathtub and laundry room.
