I mean, who doesn’t like to cha-cha?
The guest bathroom is basically almost done. I finally remembered to take pictures so we are ready to share!
As a friendly reminder, here is what we were working with.
Pink. Pink. Pink. Old. More pink. Not functional. Pink.
I despised this bathroom. Not only did the toilet leak, giving me the biggest scare of my life when I found water dripping through the garage ceiling, it was just generally ugly. But that is all in the past and we now have a guest bathroom that I’m happy to have guests use. In fact, one of us uses it every day.
We did the demo. I say we because it was we. Ok I didn’t actually demo anything but I did all the clean up. I even helped carry our cast iron tub to the garage. No pics because demo is just boring and messy.
Y’all we are officially retired from drywall. Can I get an Aaaaaaaaaaaaamen? We found out with our last bathroom remodel that our favorite tile guys can also do drywall. Sign me up. We had them do the drywall and while it was still dusty in my house, it was a lot faster and a lot nicer looking than if we did it. No offense honey.
The rest of the project moved along from there. Plumber, electrician, tiling, etc. Blah, blah, blah, no one cares, let’s move on. Here’s the widest angle shot we can get of the new bathroom!
Let’s start with the cabinet, shall we? The only thing we kept was the original cabinet. It was custom-fit to the spot and it was not in bad shape. Andy painted it a nice gray and lined it with some fun contact paper [which I forgot to take a picture of].
The sink. I don’t even want to talk about how hard it was to get this sink. Let’s just say we had to order it three times, from two different places. It was a mess. However, now it’s here and gorgeous!
We got a nice but basic Kohler medicine cabinet. It has tons of storage. I didn’t take a picture of it because I don’t want you analyzing my medications.
We did two pendants here. They are both from Restoration Hardware, bought during a sale.
We choose white hexagonal tiles for the walls to keep it bright and open. We opted to tile all the way to the ceiling in the shower, which I think makes it seem huge. Seriously. I feel like a munchkin in there!
It’s popular nowadays to hang the shower curtain rod at the ceiling to help make the room seem taller, and thus bigger. I really like this trend. I found a shower curtain on amazon that was only $35 for a 95″ length. Sold!
It lines up perfectly with the niche we had put in right above the sink. What a brilliant idea from my hubby. I was so concerned about not having any counter space with this giant sink. Well, one thing he did is add in the niche which fits water glasses, toothbrushes, etc wonderfully.
We still need to hang the towel rods and toilet paper holder. But I bought a little wire basket from Crate and Barrel for $12 to hold extra toilet paper. Got the idea from this post.
In case you forgot what we started with:
