Bath Renovations | Part 1

Before we left for vacay, we had destroyed the bathroom - literally. Right now I'm brushing my teeth in the kitchen sink and getting my face on in the bedroom. All that's left is the shower and toilet - thankfully!

While the hubs is off work for the next week or so, he plans on wrapping up most of the bathroom renovations. We're still trying to figure out exactly what we're going to do (here). I have a pretty good idea and only a little bit of time left. As soon as the floors are finished and the new toilet in - my time is up.

Anyways, here's the progress so far.

Before we started, it's hard to tell but the laundry is when you enter on the left with the shower next to it. On the right is the toilet, vanity and linen closet. If it weren't such a mess I'd be removing the closet and adding it above the laundry, but there is electrical and vents in the walls of it. :(

A view looking in from the hallway and of course,  the laundry area with the original paint colour from when we moved in. The holes in the wall are from changing out the water hookups. I want to remove the cupboard, put in a countertop and other shelving. When we moved in the closet doors were removed - I'm hoping to make it pretty so I can keep it that way.

The linen closet is on the opposite side of the laundry - no door again. I'm actually hoping to find something used with character for it - maybe even with glass? I really need to tidy up the space.

And then there's the vanity. I hate it! That's all I can say.

Don't get me started on the floors. They were laid so poorly they are breaking everywhere. The doorway is the main reason we are tackling this sooner than later. Once Little P starts crawling this can't be like this - he would slice his hands open for sure!

And let the demo begin. While the hubs was at work I removed the tile. When he came home he removed the subfloor they put in and the vanity. It's so nice not to have to step up to get into the bathroom. Oh and did I mention they built all of the subfloor and tile around the toilet instead of raising it? Let me tell you squatting that low sure was fun while pregnant - NOT!

The hubs hard at work and here's pretty much what it finished out like that night. We now have the vanity removed and the start of the floors put in.

That's it for now. Hopefully I'll have some more progress pics soon!

Progress, Progress, Progress!

It's everywhere... and I mean everywhere when I say it. We've been super busy these past couple of weeks getting ready for... well, everything!

I don't have pics yet, but the basement has been fully organized, one bedroom setup, the other partially. The storage room is organized! (Of course, we have lots of renos left down there... but it looks good for now!) All of my crafting stuff and office has been moved down and the nursery is well underway. Trust me - I spent a good hour the other day caulking all of the trim - BORING!!!

We've also started the furniture for the nursery - I know, about time! Here's a peak... I'm thinking of doing a dresser (we picked up a free one last year) painted like this... only I had the red and white paint purchased and now I'm thinking something else... I guess we'll both have to wait and see what I decide on.

We also bought a little Ikea cabinet/wardrobe off of kijiji that is the perfect height for our little guy as he gets older... and I got to try my hand at milk paint for the first time. Let me tell you... my hubby HATES... and I mean HATES painting and he loved this stuff... Here's a sneak peak at the color.

Oh, and did I mention the mantel is well on its way to being finished! I came home from work last night and the b-i-l had been working away all day on it! Yes he knows how to break into our house... and I'm so thankful he does. The excitement to be able to decorate... I'm so simple sometimes! :)

night photos suck.

Well... that's pretty much it for now. Rumor is my mom is having a baby shower at my place this weekend for family... so we're going to be busy, busy, busy wrapping up all these projects in time!
