After long last the upstairs bathroom is done. Yahoo!!
First photo of the bathroom for this blog. ehh.
And here we go –
to start with – the 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.
I know I keep saying it – but seriously……2013!!! That is when I started this thing. And now its done. I am so excited to be able to cross this off my list.
Have a great day Peeps!
At this time last year (2016!!) I posted our plans for the year. We were pretty successful, which I can truly say…I am surprised about that.
Here is the list as described on Jan 4th of last year:
- Master Bathroom – started
- Guest Bathroom – vanity purchased
- Downstairs bathroom
- Front porch roof
- Finish front walkway
- Terrace hill to the chicken coop
Master Bathroom – Done!
Guest Bathroom – In Progress
Downstairs Bathroom – In Progress. thisclosetobeingdone
Sheetrock, mud, tape, texture are on tap for this weekend.
Front Porch Roof and Front Walkway – Done
Terrace hill to chicken coop – Done
I also added a few things back in November.
- Back Gate – The back gate is up….but I have no pics for you 😦 fail
- Furniture placement in the basement – the fireplace is here!
Dave flies home later today and we will be hammering out as much of the basement bathroom as we can and laying out our plans for 2017. I will have our list ready for you next week!
Enjoy your weekend Peeps.
We are not done with the basement bathroom and I am already anxious to move onto the Guest bathroom. I know…. The only thing that has changed about this bathroom since we moved in, is the paint color and the art.
I went shopping at Ikea in 2013. Yes, you read that right. I purchased my vanity and faucet for the guest bathroom in 2013. I love what I picked out and am still very excited for the changes to come in that room.
I am now pulling together all of images of bathrooms that I have been saving since 2013. I would like to narrow down my paint colors. The entire vanity, toilet and shower will be white…..so some color will be a nice addition.
Any preferences? I am leaning towards the 1st and 3rd blue.
I always like reading the graffiti in public toilet stalls…secretly of course…cause writing on stalls is not kosher. There is usually something that makes me laugh. I was thinking that I should create something for my bathroom that would give me the same ha-ha laugh. Without the graffiti guilt.
I took a piece of flat wood that was apart of the old vanity that we demo’d from our master bathroom and covered it in chalkboard contact paper.
There were some bubbles that needed to be smoothed out.
Dave helped out by making my 2 sided frame.
I sanded and poly’d to protect the wood.
Oh My Gosh….have I enjoyed having this. The girls leave me notes, visiting friends have taken advantage and I laugh every-time I see something new. (the most popular items are Doctor Who quotes)
The bathroom chalkboard inspired the girls so much that they were spending time in the bathroom just to draw, so I purchased each of them a chalkboard for their rooms.
Such a good idea.
