J has been BUSY BUSY BUSY on our powder room, which was gutted last week. I'm very proud of his handiness! He's been working on the floor and he's pretty sure he will be laying and finishing the tile floor tomorrow...woo hoo! When he pulled up the old tile and ripped out the vanity, we found a pretty messed up subfloor which has required more work than we originally thought. That bathroom was a hot mess to begin with, so I'm not really surprised that it's been a huge pain to update it. I've been taking pictures of his progress, so I can document all his hard work. To give you an idea of how heinous it was, here's the before pictures:
WARNING - These pictures are very graphic and feature the world's ugliest wallpaper and most disgusting tile and sink EVER! Don't say I didn't warn you!!
GAH!!! Seriously, it's such a TINY space that going in there with that wallpaper can seriously make you sick to your stomach and give you a headache! (do you like how I hung up some monogrammed towels to "help"?? yeah, that doesn't help at all!)
Another view - lovely plastic mirror!
Oh and it gets better - even the CEILING is wallpapered! with coordinating colors!! Yeah, I'm not kidding. And check out that gorgeous light!!
The vanity with about 15 years of built up caulk and grime.
The floor - doesn't that tile look disgusting...the grout is seriously BROWN! NASTY!!
So that's the before, just so you know what we were dealing with. We honestly didn't even go in to that bathroom for the first 4 months we lived here. I pretended it didn't exist. Thank god we have 2 other bathrooms. Anyways, I will have pictures of the new beautiful floor in a few days!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! HAPPY BLACK FRIDAY!! (did anyone go shopping? I refused to leave the house today!! ha!)
