Bathroom completion!

It is with extreme excitement that I state the bathroom RENO is done, DONE! It was a long month and a half, supposed to be 2 weeks, but so well worth it! Mae fell in LOVE with the contractor Scott, and Ryan worked his fanny off doing some small things himself (paint, faucets, toilet install, caulking, etc.) and it is finally perfect and I am in LOVE with it!

Here is the list of all we had done:
-Tore out the soffit (boxed wall above the shower)
-tore down the 12 foot wall between the open door and shower wall.
-Demo'd tub, toilet, old shower, sinks, faucets, countertops, tile surround, blinds, and floor
-new toilet
-new tub
-new shoe mold
-new shower with niche
-new faucets
-new shower and tub fictures
-new tile surround for tub
-new marble countertops
-new undermount sinks
-new globes on light fixtures
-painted mirrors for a new look
-new hardware on cabinets
-painted cabinets with "Duck Blue" Annie Sloan chalk paint
-new tile floor
-new bamboo blinds
-re-painted all trim
-painted the ceiling and walls
-new glass doors for shower as well as expanded the shower space
-new towel racks and rings
-STILL NEED: open shelving Ryan will build behind toilet

The beginning of painting the cabinets. 

The blue made us nervous and we were not sure at first. The countertops were a nightmare I wont even go into. 

Mae LOVED Mr. Scott. He loved her too. He even brought her a lollipop and stuffed minnie mouse at the end of the project for being such a good girl!

This is my bedroom at one 

Before the doors and shower head were installed. 

Tile selection:


This is the only part not finished. Ryan is going to build open shelving like he did in our kitchen, we he gets a chance. Then it will be complete. 

So thankful for our new bathroom. Even though most people wont see it, Ryan and I can enjoy it since we use it daily! It has been such a breath of fresh air!

  4. Your bathroom looks so lovely! I like the idea of those double niches. It’s perfect for soaps, shampoos and the like. Anyway, thanks for sharing this with us. Have a great day!

  5. Congrats on completing the project, Leighton! Your beautiful bathroom totally gave worth to the long month and a half of hand work you put in it. I love every detail, especially the base of the sinks. Great job! In any way, thanks for sharing that! Kudos and all the best!
