We started a bathroom remodel last year and we are still in the process of finishing up a few things. It always seems like the little things that take forever to finish up.
I was a little frustrated when I went to find photos of the bathroom in the before stage and could only find one. I know I took more but we also had a computer malfunction and I am wondering if they may have gotten lost during that. So here is the one before photo that I do have.
This is the entrance to the old bathroom when we purchased this home. You can see that there was two doors. One leading into the bathroom and then another that separated the toilet and tub from the sink area. Lovely wall paper, blue tile and laminate flooring all said in a very sarcastic tone of voice. We completely gutted the entire thing to do the remodel.
I purchased the clawfoot tub off of Craigslist for $100.00 and it was in rather rough shape with quite a bit of rust on the exterior. I did a lot of sanding to remove the rust and then spray painted the outside. The interior of the tub wasn’t in really bad shape and some simple scrubbing and some pumice stones cleaned it up nicely.
The bathroom vanity was built by my cousin and my husband built the concrete countertop. It was his first try at doing one and he done a good job. Not perfect but the imperfections are fine with me. I will be doing a blog on the steps that he did and some things that we learned along the way in a future post.
So what is left to do? It’s the little details like trim work around the floors and the window as well as finding a tub faucet that I really like. It has been a labor of love and time but well worth it. More updates soon!
