If there were a prize for that, it's fair to say we could be serious contestants.
When we bought this home back in 2010, the bathroom was a major turnoff at first. The floor space measures a whopping 4 feet by 5 feet...that's approximately 20 ceramic tiles.
But...I warmed up to the idea of having a small bathroom because the house had so much to offer us otherwise. Specifically, a fourth bedroom to use as a playroom and a double car garage for storage.
And so here she is, in all her alarmingly awesome glory.
Replaced the old sink and toilet
Painted the blue counter a medium grey
Freshened up the ceramic tile grout using grey Grout Renew
Installed a new light fixture
Painted the walls Behr's Snowfall White
The sink caulking job taking place in the photo was an epic fail and needs to be redone.
The entire process has been incredibly DIY, as hiring someone is not in the budget right now. Our entire house needs a lot of work. DIYing will save us thousands of dollars but will likely cause whopping migraines. A fair trade, perhaps?
To do, in addition to redoing the sink caulking:
Hang new shower curtain
Install towel bars
Hang window treatment
Paint mirror and hang
Build open shelving above toilet
Paint interior of vanity cupboard
Hang curtain in place of missing vanity doors
Organization bins for vanity
Caulk around base of bathtub
Paint baseboards and trim
Touch up wall paint
Spray paint baseboard heater (won't happen until summer)
New window (also won't happen until summer)
Thanks, Canadian winter for interfering with my home improvement efforts.
