Remodel a Half Bathroom - Part 2

Tip Junkie handmade projectsLast summer we worked hard to remodel a half bathroom (link to Part 1 of the story) in our home.  We ripped off very ugly paneling, pulled up 2 layers of vinyl flooring, painted the walls, laid new vinyl flooring and replaced the vanity and toilet.

We completed the major parts of the remodel within a couple of weeks, the finer parts of the decorating took me awhile though.  Thankfully I have a good friend who's great at decorating!  She gave me a few ideas and I slowly found pieces to that matched her recommendations.  The finishing touches went in place just last month.

Now we have a totally different bathroom!  I'm so not exaggerating and here's the photographic proof.

Ugly Bathroom before

Beautiful Bathroom After

The mason jars are filled with Q-Tips, cotton balls, and a green shower pouf.

I finished the bench, bought the basket at Ann & Hope, and had everything else.

All together I think the new bathroom cost us about $600 (I didn't add it all up in the end).  Not bad for such dramatic results!!  I still like to just admire how pretty the room is.

Have you ever remodeled a bathroom?  How did it turn out?

Thank you! I love how it looks like a grown up bathroom and not a kids bathroom. One day I'll have a master bathroom to decorate all pretty.

Awesome! I think you may potentially begin to fall in love with your house haha j/k! Where did you get the "family" picture?

That is beautiful, steph! Very clean and outdoorsy. ;) I did in fact remodel the bathroom in our first apt.... rented!... it was so old that the layers of wall paper were peeling from under the paint. I scraped, painted everything "satin cream" and made a shower curtain and cafe curtain in lavender, forest, and cream. Prettier than it sounds, compaired to the starting gate.

Leeta, I found the picture about family at Ann & Hope months ago. I've seen similar art work at other stores.

I really do like my house. It has been great for this stage of my life. All my babies are close at night and I definitely couldn't have kept a larger house clean. But, as my kids are getting bigger we need a bigger house!

Thanks, @tiasmomma! Your remodeled bathroom sounds pretty. I'm sure it was better than what you started with!!

I'm very impressed. Can I hire you?

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

Thanks Westafricanrains! And no, you may not hire us. It only took me 7 years of living in this house to finally convince my hubby to remodel that bathroom!

Oh wow! That IS a dramatic difference! I LOVE what you ended up doing with the room and space. Beautiful! (A lot of hard work too, I know!) But it definitely paid off.
