When we last met our fearless DIYer (that’s me)… I was painting the guest bathroom. It’s the guest bathroom now, but in two months, it will be the master bathroom.
The paint is making a huge difference. The room already looks ten times bigger.
I’ve painted one coat on three walls of the room; two coats on the wall I’m facing in the above photograph.
Why did I stop painting, you ask?
Well, as with any older bathroom (or any older room), as I painted the room and got up close and personal with it, I found problems. For example, cracked tile on the floor and in the shower; holes in caulk in the shower; wallpaper peeling from under layers of paint; and the vanity is not in good shape.
I talked to Dear Husband about this and we’ve decided to explore renovating this bathroom completely. Given that it’s going to be our master bath soon enough, we want to have a retreat, and not just put lipstick on a pig with a nice paint job.
What are we looking at, in terms of renovation? Here are my ideas so far:
– Fix the shape of the shower from a wonky angular shower to a full-size rectangular shower.
– New tile in the shower and on the floor.
– New vanity, maybe with two sinks (the space is large enough). For the new vanity, I would love to repurpose a dresser or table, so I’m going to be on the lookout for something that might work.
– Figure out whether to incorporate this vanity area (in the picture, it was my craft area, but it’s not anymore because the area was just too small for that):
So, that’s where we are now. I’ve been having fun looking at tile and today I think I’m going to visit some thrift stores to get vanity ideas.
Thanks for stopping by!
