The renovation on the hall bathroom at the house in Hooterville is taking a little longer than I expected. However, it IS progressing and I am extremely excited about the changes.
Everything was ripped out, right down to the studs in some places. Initially, I was undecided about replacing the bathtub and the tile around the tub right now because it wasn’t THAT bad. I finally came to the conclusion it was probably better to bite the bullet, financially and replace everything now, rather than try to do it in stages, since remodeling is so disruptive and messy.
Here’s a not-so-great photo to give you a sneak peek of the new tile, bathtub, flooring, bead board wallpaper, paint color and the base of the new toilet. (I asked the contractor to leave the toilet tank off temporarily so it would be easier for me to hang and paint the bead board wallpaper behind the toilet.)
As I recall, when I asked for opinions, the vote was unanimous to remove the privacy half-wall and what a wonderful difference it made! In addition, using all one type of flooring instead of the mish-mash combination of (badly laid) tile and parquet certainly enlarged the space, visually.
Just in case you forgot, here’s a “before” photo of what we inherited when we bought the house.
The new sink/vanity is also in. It was installed Monday but I’m going to keep you in suspense a little longer as to which style I decided on. I will say I am over-the-moon THRILLED with it! It’s BEAUTIFUL! Or at least I think so. I’ve stood in the doorway at least 47 times, just staring at it and smiling.
There is still work to do in here so I hope you will keep checking back for the big reveal. Hopefully, I’ll have better pictures to share and, for those who might be interested, I’ll soon be providing the low-down on all the details like paint color, flooring info etc.
