UncategorizedBathroom Progress March 16, 2011Well, as with any other DIY project, our master bathroom redo is taking a little longer than we expected. But, we’re enjoying the process and our vision of the finished product keeps pushing us along. First up was some major demolition on the pink tub and vanity. Chris was more than happy to take that on. It’s interesting the surprises you get when gutting and redoing a room like this. We knew the walls were paint over wallpaper in places and paint over ripped off wallpaper glue in others. In tearing it apart, we found remnants of three different prints of wallpaper! So happy to get rid of that! The worst surprise and probably hardest part so far of this redo was the tile floor. We knew we wanted to rip it up and re-tile with something more our style. But what we didn’t realize was that this tile was tiled over other tile. Trying to chip that up was a nightmare! But, finally, after a lot of hard work and a little help from our tile expert, the old tile is removed and ready for the new! Is it crazy that this demolished version of our master bath feels more hopeful than the more put together version before? I guess not because it means a bath that is all us is on the way! As I said earlier, our vision for this bathroom is rustic, but also brighter. We’re going with a rustic subway tile for the shower and matching cobblestone-type floors. There will be some white beadboard to add a little architectural interest, some outdoor barn light fixtures, some contrast between light and dark, and an old refurbished piece of furniture. Sounds much, much better.
