Mini reno


Alex and I had a very productive weekend! I'd like to remind you what this bathroom looked like when we first moved in. We gutted this bathroom about 2 weeks ago. It was like an archaeological dig! We kept finding older floors and more layers of wallpaper. We finally got everything down to the bones and began building back up...

But first, more pictures of the old bathroom


Mmmmm...love that peel and stick fake wood "tile"!

Then we got down to business and put the tile down


Then we had to wait a day for all the thinset to dry...

PS, I made some bagin' mac and cheese from scratch today while Alex and I were waiting for the grout to dry ;-)


Then I painted!


Then we decided to do a tile baseboard with our left over tile; which I freakin' LOVE! We haven't grouted it yet but we'll do that tomorrow


Then we installed my $3 thrift store light and the mirror from the master bath (I repainted it). I'm not sure if we'll keep it in there as it might be a little small. We won't know until we get the vanity in...hopefully tomorrow


So there's still some minor things left to be done...put the toilet back in, grout the "baseboards", caulk everything, install the vanity and then we're about set! It will be nice to have this bathroom in working order again

Love it! Great color. And the tile baseboard is GREAT. Thanks for the advice today! I didn't go with them, but they had a good time poking around your old town.
