This hall bath transform was a very long time coming! So glad to have this light, bright and ethereal area that is eventually visitor-ready! 


I am eventually revealing the very last area to be remodeled in this home! All of the key remodels are now completed. I can’t think I’m even indicating that. lol
It’s been a very (pretty!) extended time coming. It will be 18 yrs in June that we have lived listed here. That is a lengthy time to be functioning on a dwelling, y’all. ha!

We do have a couple of things to complete up above in our bedroom but we are scheduling to get again on that soon. (just smaller end variety stuff)
AND we system to change a person of our bedrooms into a visitor bedroom. (it’s now our “stock” area for the shop but we have programs to move that somewhere else) I’ll be sharing the guest space as we do it so continue to be tuned for that.

And yes, if you have been wanting to know simply because I’ve outlined it a bunch, we are nevertheless scheduling to promote and move. Unfortunately, we identified absolutely nothing in the past year+ that we liked ample to go into. We have been searching the whole time! We want particular things and just hardly ever observed them all in one particular residence. We may well stop up purchasing land and building in the foreseeable future so for the time being, we are likely to settle again into staying listed here and permitting it go for a little bit. That is all right, it presents us a chance to appreciate all the do the job we have done in this house (and maybe do even more…you know us!! lol)

But currently, it’s all about this corridor bathtub transform. I am thrilled with it!

Hall Bathtub Rework Expose

Alright, so you may well be pondering why it claims “x2” up there. Which is due to the fact we really gave this corridor bath a mini-makeover before long just after relocating in. Type of how we gave our kitchen 2 mini makeovers ahead of giving it the full remodel we did just lately.

Let’s commence at the very starting, shall we?

Brace yourselves, haha, these photographs had been Never meant to be seen by any individual other than my partner! I  took these shots (back again in 2004) for him for the reason that he was performing out of city at the time and I known as him and mentioned guess what I’m doing?? (pulling down tiles and having it heading!) So I snapped a number of photos for him.

So, they are a mess. We had moved in not long ago and things was just everywhere…and I was now fatigued of seeking at that dated lavatory and free tiles prepared to fall from the wall.

And then this is how it went immediately after that…

Not undesirable at all!

  • We actually pulled up the outdated blue tile and laid this super unexciting (and neutral-our considering at the time) builder-quality type of ceramic flooring. haha
  • For the cabinet, we just designed new doorways and I painted the complete matter.
  • The countertop is just one of individuals laminate all set-mades you can purchase off the shelf at Lowe’s or The House Depot.
  • The sinks ended up like $20 bucks just about every and we reused the taps that have been listed here.
  • We set up beadboard where the blue tiles had been.
  • New mild fixture (this is in fact the most recent 1, we had a past “new” one for a long time ahead of this just one)
  • New mirror.

Truly not poor at all but the cabinet was seriously showing age and desired to go.
I was also quite tired of the laminate countertop and sink condition. And the bathtub and encompass desired interest.

It was just time. 

Having said that, I genuinely, genuinely did not want to pull up all that tile or pull out the tub.

And we experienced regarded replacing the beadboard with shiplap as we did in the downstairs guest 50 % tub that we experienced also previously additional beadboard to on an before makeover.

You can see this whole makeover, listed here.

So we did not do both. 

I just gave the beadboard a fresh new coat of paint and very well we did the exact same thing with the tub. We subbed that reglazing out to a skilled though since we wished it to past.
It seems wonderful!

Are you all set to see the reveal now?

Now, if you bear in mind, I had a different vanity cupboard picked out. I requested it and months later was explained to it would not be accessible. So we had to switch gears. And by switching to a blue cupboard we experienced to seriously change gears on the full style.

But I’m thrilled with the alter!

As a refresher, in this article is what I at first experienced prepared.

Obtaining all drawers is a in addition way too. I generally select drawers over cupboards any day.

This certain bath self-importance arrived with gold AND brushed nickel components. I selected to use gold. (but it’s nice to have the brushed nickel for other jobs down the road!)

I did, even so, opt for brushed nickel for the taps to go with the light-weight fixture and towel racks in here.
