We took a week off of work, and pretty much did the entire project in a 2 1/2 week period. Let me tell you, that was quite an interesting 2 1/2 weeks (we have a grand total of 1 bathroom in our house, therefore we were without a shower for several days, and without toilet for almost 2 full weeks. yeah…interesting.) The first week, while we were off work, we pretty much worked non-stop on the remodel, and the second week we worked on it every chance we got after work and on the weekends. Tired was an understatement once it was all said and done.
But the tired was totally worth it. And the going without a toilet? Also totally worth it. Because I now have a shiny new bathroom complete with fresh paint, new fixtures, and a clean tub. All things that were missing from the previous bathroom which was pretty much just old and dirty, and not much more.
I intended to take pictures and blog some before & after shots quite a long time ago…but, there were (and still are) a few details left that I wanted to finish before the big reveal. Well, I’m not convinced those are going to get finished any time soon, and since pretty much all of our family and friends have come over to see the new bathroom, I figured it was about time to post these pictures.
So now, over 5 months later, here are the before and after pictures…enjoy!
I am in. LOVE. with my new vanity. Especially considering how u-g-l-y the previous one was…
The window was another major transformation. Its so nice not to have to have a shower curtain *inside* the shower, and to not have to look at that old, rotting window anymore! The glass block window is one of my favorite features of the remodel. It is the only thing we paid someone else to install, but it was oh so worth it.
A couple of other details I am in love with about the new bathroom…
