Bathroom Remodel

To start off, our old bathroom smelled like mothballs and gold bond. Delicious, right? It needed a major overhaul. So major, we had to take it down to the studs (and even replace those!). It was moldy underneath, and we couldn't salvage the ORIGINAL tiles or walls because of all the glue they used to hold up those nasty vinyl walls. I was heartbroken. Anyhow, it started off looking like this:

Vinyl, waterproof walls, the toilet was being held up by a stick of wood, the tub had permanent foot stick ons, it was rusty around the drain, and the plumbing, I kid you not, was duct tape. It was that bad.

We replaced every single, solitary thing in the bathroom EXCEPT the exhaust fan. It was the only thing worth keeping. It actually looks pretty cool. New toilet, sink, plumbing, tub, tile, fixtures, everything. ALL new, and totally glorious.

I'm so glad that's over with. Next up: dining room HOPEFULLY!
