And here we go –

to start with Рthe tile!  sigh.  It matches the entry landing, the basement landing and the basement bathroom.  It is so awesome to walk through the house and feel that kind of consistency.

don’t worry – that side edge of the vanity below has since been cleaned up.

So bright- squinty.

The paint is up, the trim is in, the vanity is in (so gorgeous and shiny white).   I also decided to go with a vintage-y looking mirror to contrast the ultra sleek vanity.

So close, I can almost taste it.  Ceiling, shelves next to sink to balance out the retro (!) mirror and a small door to the sump pump.

Bathroom Update

Which bathroom?  Is that the question you are thinking in your head?  How about both bathrooms?! Hells yeah.

Basement bathroom has seen the needle move the most. ¬†As I said in my Instagram post, this pic makes me feel like we have taken several steps backward. ¬†It is a positive thing though….we are prepping for tile.

We are prepping for tile on our landing as well.  Check out that retro linoleum:

I can’t make it around the corner for a pic of the bathroom but here is the landing:

Such a good look for you 1970’s house.

I am eagerly anticipating the grout being completed and the laundry (!) getting hooked back up.

Upstairs Recap:

***Chris H – did you see that I took your advice??

Future plan for this bathroom –

  • finish painting the walls blue
  • floor tile (same as basement and landings)
  • new tub insert
  • price out tile for the shower portion (may be a full insert, may be just a tub)
  • install white toilet
  • install white vanity
  • new trim
  • evaluate the art

More pics to come as we complete each project!  Happy New Year Peeps.
