First, I'm going to show you photos of the bathroom "before" and I mean before we moved in...right after the home was set up. I took pictures but I did a majorly crappy job of it...I think I was just holding the camera out and clicking. I wish I could go back and kick myself and I will definitely do that as soon as time travel is available to the average person ;)
|I guess the drain had leaked for the previous owners and|
that's the reason there was some kind of caulk around the
|This is the bathroom after we put the new vanity in a couple months ago.|
|We had put down these stick on tiles a few years ago when|
we did the kitchen. They actually held up fairly well until
we took the old vanity out and then they began to
separate pretty rapidly.
|The bare floor|
|This is the cement board going down...I think he said it|
was called hardie backer board and it has to go down
|Mr. FixIt himself...taking down the shower walls and|
getting ready to take the tub out.
|Notice there are still no shower walls here? Well, that's|
because we also had to order those...Because nothing
can be easy, right? lol
|There's my very own Mr. FixIt again :) He had to cut|
some of the wall away to get to the plumbing and he's
replacing it here.
|How much cleaner and nicer does that look???|
|Remember that I did say it was 95% finished...we still|
have some paint touching up as well as trim work to do.
I gave him the weekend off to go fishing because I'd been
cracking the whip on him to get it finished, lol.
|The mirror will be replaced as soon as I can find a|
replacement that I like and that fits.
We did not replace the toilet because honestly, it just seemed crazy to replace it just for the sake of saying it was replaced. Haha...it made quite the porch decoration--It sat on our front porch for well over 2 weeks...yep, we're those neighbors, lol.
In total, we spent just under $1,000 on the bathroom and even though it was a headache it was totally worth it :)
