I’ll be posting pictures/writing about our hall bath remodeling project in about three different parts. The first one will naturally be all the before pictures, the second one will be progress photos, and the last one will contain finished project. If needed, I will add another post.
A couple weeks ago I posted on Facebook that I was going to ditch the ‘guest room’ concept in my house and opt for a more traditional classroom/home office instead. I’ll soon write about the motivation for that decision. I posted paint charts and asked everyone to vote. I even started the room, but when Milton returned home from NY, he decided he wanted to rip out the hall bath and completely remodel it. Right now our house is a wreck!
Since we bought this house almost two years ago, he has been bothered by the tile in the laundry room, kitchen, and the bathrooms. We covered the kitchen floor with a different shade of wood to match the rest of the house. The tile is still a problem for him though.
There was actually nothing wrong with our house. We moved into it and decided to make upgrades. We have redone the kitchen, living room, dining room (have a few things left to do in here), family room, our son’s room, and we are in the middle of working on the office and hall bath. The biggest project will be our master bedroom/master bath/master closet. His reasoning for tackling the hall bathroom first was to give us a comfortable bathroom to use while he works in the master. Hence, the hall bath redo.
We will be changing the wall tile, changing to a glass block window, using extensive mosaic tiles, retiling the bathroom floor, accenting a wall, hanging decorative pieces, installing a new vanity and faucet, light fixture, vent, a clear, sliding glass door, hand-towel rod, and tissue holder, and re-purposing the medicine cabinet space among other things. The coolest part is that I played ‘Name Your Own Price’ at Home Depot the other night. The light fixture we bought for the bathroom was on clearance from $60 down to $15.06. We were able to talk the supervisor into giving us an additional 20% off because it was the display item. I did the same thing at a furniture store a few days ago, and I will write about that soon.
So, what do you think so far?
