Mostly :) I still have to hang a new shower curtain rod, but I’m scared silly to drill into my new tiling job.
This reno took me 3 weeks to do and other than having someone install the tub, I did it all by myself. Can you tell I’m proud?! This is the biggest project I have taken on.
I started by ripping the existing tub and tile out, bringing it down to the studs.
After – new tub, new shower faucet, new tiles
Storage is an issue in a small bathroom, I solved that by building up.
A fresh coat of paint and some new accessories helped to make the space feel airy and bright.
I installed this bamboo slatted shelf above the sink to hold brushes and soap. This is a shelf meant to go above your kitchen sink, I simply removed the legs and mounted it to brackets.
The toilet and sink were in good condition and although they are no longer what I would choose, I didn’t replace them.
The final touch was new flooring which I installed yesterday. I tore out the old linoleum and to keep costs down, put new lino in.
I love the pattern and texture in the shower curtain, bought at a garage sale last year for $3.00
The new flooring goes well with the touches of bamboo in the blind and baskets.
It was 3 weeks of back breaking work, but I am pleased with the final result.
In total I spent a little over $1,100. That includes the new tub, faucet, tile, floor, trim, paint, labour and building supplies. The wealth of knowledge gained and the boost to my self esteem is priceless :)
