Downstairs Bathroom Round 1: DONE!

Hey pals..the last in-house update was when we were starting the downstairs bathroom around Christmas time! Here are a few before photos for your viewing pleasure:

You know you’re jealous of that bathroom. Just admit it.

So, we painted the room, mirror, and cabinets, installed the new light fixture, a new countertop, and a new sink/faucet! Voila!

Yes, we need to paint and install the baseboard heater cover! Thanks for mentioning it.

We ended up breaking the backsplash off of the countertop when we were cutting the countertop down to size, so we installed a row of white subway tile backsplash for now. Eventually we are going to do a full renovation on this bathroom (re-work the layout, add a shower/bath, full gut job), so we didn’t want to spend too much on anything that would be a temporary placeholder.

The finishing touch was the installation of my beautiful “Paint Nite/Wine & Design” paintings, too, which I am now calling my “Crappy Art Gallery.” 🙂 Speaking of which, I want to add to my gallery, so anyone who wants to go drink and paint with me..holla at me!

Even though it took me 5 months to actually blog about this bad boy-it only took us a few days (and about $400) to complete, which was refreshing after months and months of working on the living room/sunroom (and still not being finished. joy!).

  1. The sink area is so pretty!! I think it turned out really well. I’m still not finished with our guest bathroom that we started what, six or seven months ago? I really need to get on it.

    1. Thank you!! It felt good to “finish” a project although it isn’t completely finished. 🙂 for your bathroom, I know I’m never as motivated if I don’t HAVE to use that room. Maybe invite someone to come stay with you soon so that you have no excuses. Haha!!

      1. Yeeeeaaaaah we’ve had people stay with us for like 5 of the last 7 weekends so that’s kind of embarrassing haha. To be fair, we only have to do the crown and maybe a couple of shelves so at least it’s functional! I just have so much trouble finishing the last couple of things of any project.

      2. Hahaha. Oh I’m the same way! We still have to paint trim in our kitchen AND our sun room so you definitely aren’t alone!!
