Alright, now to the bathroom.
We have 2 full baths upstairs. One is in the master bedroom and the other one is in the hallway. And at one point, 3 college boys shared this one bath.
Stage 1: Trying to clean up the mess the last roommate left us.
|Do you see how the laminate floor is ripped by the tub??|
I'll give one of Brian's roommates credit, when he moved out, his mom came over and gave the bathroom a good scrub. But shortly after, B's twin moved in, quickly moved out, and didn't clean the bathroom before he left. And for the VERY short time that the twin lived here - the 3 of us lived togehter. It got a little cramped... I can joke about it now because the twin brought it up in his Best Man speech at our rehearsal dinner. I highly don't recommend living with 2 boys to anyone.
Stage 2: Trying to make it look decent for the time being
|Notice the metal shower curtain rod, I'll bring that up later|
Step 3: Let hubby do the tile work.
here a few shots of the floor in the beginning stages.
|He glued down the wood transition strip on the floor, that's why the weight is there.|
And the rest of the bathroom for your viewing pleasure:
|Now the shower curtain rod is white|
Some of my monogrammed shower gifts:
|It's hard to see it, but the monogram is etched in there|
|I made my lil brother buy me this makeup mirror last year for x-mas, I highly recomend every girl put one in their bathroom.|
|I'm trying to convince myself that I really don't need the monogrammed bars of soap to put in this glass canister... but I think I need to try harder.|
My sweet sister-in-law made me this towel cake for one of my showers, isn't it clever??
|As you can see, I was really excited about this towel cake.|
I was going to buy a new toilet paper holder for the bathroom, but I painted it silver instead.
Brian thought it was silly and that I should just buy a new one...
|Note: I don't normally have my toilet paper role this way.|
But I saved some Ching-Ching instead. I even spray painted the metal shower curtain rod. Brian said I should just buy a new one, here's the convo:
Brian: "Why are you going to the trouble of spray painting it, just buy a new one"
Me: "Because a new one is $10"
Brian: "So, spray paint is $3"
EXACTLY. I saved $7 buddy. Put that towards my Derby Dress Fund please. Thanks!
It was here:
I was sick of it and about to toss it out, then I decided to just paint it. I like it...for now.
OK, one more look:
It looks so nice and fresh =) And of course it would not look like this at all if it weren't for my amazing tiler, THANKS BRIAN!!!!
I should put a sign on the door that reads: "NO MESSY BOYS ALLOWED". I'm NOT revamping this bathroom again!
The funny thing about this bathroom is...I don't actually use this bathroom. It's a guest bathroom and why would I want to make 2 bathrooms messy?? That's just silly. But if you'd like to come over, you are more than welcome to use this bathroom...the guest bedroom is another story.
OUR master bathroom is next on the list. It is the ONLY room in the house that we haven't touched. It's pretty sad and embarassing. The laminate floor is even WORSE than this bathroom was, the sink is cracked, oh and I've been slowly peeling off the wall paper border that's on the wall. But for this bathroom, we are caving in and hiring someone.
Is it sad that I am so super duper excited about a bathroom???
Thanks for reading!!
