So a long time ago, I told you we were going to attempt to remodel our upstairs bathroom ourselves. Other than the tile (we had professionally put in when we moved in because of carpet reasons), I am proud to say we did it! Well, my husband did most of the hard work. It took lots of painting, wood cutting, caulking and patience. It is well worth it. We think we probably save close to $1500 in labor.
He is what we were dealing with before. It actually doesn't look that bad in these pictures but believe me it was not good.
Daddy's little helper...
I tried to keep everything on the less expensive side, since it was basically like having two bathrooms, by using white cultured marble (it's just a kids bathroom), artwork from Etsy, we scored faucets cheap at Lowes and didn't move lighting around to avoid bringing in a electrician. I would love to have sconces but it just didn't make since to us cost wise. Here is the finished project....
I still need to get something for the window just haven't decided what yet.
Accessories from Ikea, TJMaxx, Marshalls and Target
I wanted something young, fresh and whimsical. Since it is a joining bathroom to my son's room and a guest room(which will one day be for our next child) I made the decision to make it somewhat gender neutral. Like most projects I attempt, I tend to have moments of panic and moments of "I don't care anymore; let's just get it done." In the end, I love it.
