Do you even recognize this space?! We don’t! Introducing, our brand new bathroom! It may still be the world’s smallest bathroom, but it’s brand spankin’ new and ready to start its new life! Our friends at Hammertime Remodeling gutted our old pink disaster bathroom, removed the old window that was in the shower, reinforced some beams, installed a new vent fan, new tub and wall surround, new pedestal sink and layed some lovely new tile. Now we’d like to present to you, a full before and after timeline of our bathroom’s life:
Day 1: Sayonara, Swans!
The 1950s pink bathroom shortly after we moved in and started trying not to hate it.
We got rid of the shower doors and replaced them with a blinding white shower curtain in hopes of literally blinding all who dare enter. We also converted the run down, dirty linen closet into a highly function, semi-clean and freshly painted open storage space. Then, this happened:
Yes, the straw that broke the camel’s back, the icing on the cake, Custer’s last stand, every other idiom and reference that has to do with being pushed beyond our breaking point. There was so much water damage behind these tiles, I was able to literally just pluck the soap dish right off the wall.
So we called up our buddy Mike – the man, the myth, the legend who installed our new dishwasher – and he hooked us up with a sweet deal on a brand new bathroom!
He gutted the place.
And finally, the fun part! Adding a new mirror and a practical shelf/towel bar. Bringing our beloved typeface shower curtain back into the picture and coordinating the colors we always wanted in our bathroom.
