Just a little update on my bathroom project!
Last week I mentioned I was working on our upstairs bathroom. Those are the before pictures. It’s a process. I think that is why I always wait so long to paint. You have to take everything off the walls, fill the holes, wipe the ceiling and walls down and then you can paint. I have slowly painted every single room in this house except for the kitchen ceiling, half the living room and our bedroom.
Are you the type of person that tapes off or just goes for it?
The last time I had done anything to this room was in the early 1990’s, and it shows! It was desperately in need of an update.
This house was built in 1965.
These past two weeks I have been painting the walls and the ceiling. The picture below is me working my way around the room.
Yesterday I started the cabinets.
I’m amazed at what paint can do.
You can tell by the pictures above how yellowed the paint was. It doesn’t seem to look that way until you do a side-by-side.
The doors and the drawers below the sink still need to be sanded and painted. Besides replacing the bath with a shower, we hope to get a new sink and counter top.
I ordered a towel bar, towel holder, and a tp holder, which all came in this week. My husband put those up Friday.
Still need to order new knobs for the cupboards but I can’t decide what to get.
We have two bathrooms in our house. One upstairs is a tub only and the one downstairs is a shower only. We don’t care for baths so we use the downstairs shower all the time.
However, the shower downstairs needs to be replaced. I have all the tile for it but I need to learn how to do the grout and all that building a shower entails. Is anyone else afraid to do things like that because they may mess up? It’s way too expensive to hire out the job and we need to figure out how to do it ourselves.
That’s how I learn best is by doing!
My husband has wanted a shower upstairs for several years now but I have never liked the idea. His main reason is because he doesn’t want to work on the shower downstairs until we have a fully working one upstairs. (really hate baths, lol). So here we are. Trying to figure out how to get the size of shower we need when there is nothing to be found. We are finding Out of Stock, Wrong Size, Wrong Drain Placement, just to name a few! It has been a challenge, that’s for sure.
This room is looking so much better with new paint and hardware.
I’m still working on it but love the changes. Can’t believe it’s the same room. I decided not to add a lot of things that were in here, back.
I will show you the progress as I go! Hoping to get the rest of the doors and cabinets sanded and painted soon! Also have the trim to buy, paint and put in!
Until next time,
Have a great week!
