I dreaded starting this bathroom reno for months. I knew it would be the death of me and it almost was on several occasions. Luckily though, we are in the last stages!!! Somebody pinch me. First let’s see what has been done, it won’t look like much from the pictures but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Obviously first on the list was demo, then came things like electrical and plumbing. In my opinion these are the worst projects because it’s a lot of work and you don’t get much satisfaction from different plumbing placement or new wiring for sconces without actual sconces.
There was also a lot of planning that happened in the beginning. You need to figure out what needs to go where and how long things like cabinets will take to build. You also have to start shopping around for not only tile but tile installers. Yes, sadly Trav and I will not be DIYing our tile. We tried this here and got very burnt out and frustrated so we decided to leave it to the experts. It is money REALLY well spent in our eyes. And props to all who do it yourself, you are amazing!! Lastly we had to do drywall which we also opted to hire out because let’s be real, that stuff is hard, especially when half of your bathroom needs to be patched. Trav ended up doing the concrete board and waterproofing around the tub though!
Alrighty enough talk let’s get to the pics. This is a pic of how I last left you. Basically we demo-ed and were mid way through plumbing.
Here we have most of the plumbing and electrical done as well as drywall and waterproofing up.
See told ya you wouldn’t be impressed! But tomorrow guess what is getting done? Yep Tile! And then Wednesday our cabinets will be in. Can I get a woot, woot!? I plan on painting Tuesday so it will be a totally new space come Thursday. Here is a little sneak peak of what to expect.
Honeycomb marble floors, subway tile shower, grey cabinets, mint walls, and marble countertops are all in the mix.
On a different note here is our mess of a master bedroom. This will be next on the to-do list!
