Summer Project - Downstairs Bathroom

Kevin and I are gearing up to takle our downstairs bathroom remodel.
I thought I'd share some before pics so you might understand why
this room is so high on our to-do list :)

Here's a shot from the top. Notice the whole bathroom pretty much fits in this photo?
That means it's tiny! My goal for this room is to make it seem as open and airy as possible!

One thing I'll really miss when we're done with the re-do is this lovely brown toilet.. NOT

Everything's been in this room so long it's already starting to fall apart on it's own.
I'm thinking a pedestal sink and large mirror in place of the current setup!

And here's a shot of the linoleum floor. Kevin has tiling experience so I'm
very excited for that change.

This corner had a very large storage pantry that we moved to the kitchen when we
bought the house. The lack of paint and base boards hasn't bothered me
these past two years because I NEVER use this batheroom!
I'd rather walk upstairs then walk into this dark scary room!

It's hard to see in this picture, but there's also this weird crack that looks like a big
piece of drywall was added for some reason. That's got to be fixed first and then
we're painting the walls with tone-on-tone stripes
(not the blue in the picture)... so excited!

I'm so excited to get this project started, but Kevin and I are getting pretty famous for
putting things off for loooong periods of time. Make sure and bug ask us how it's going
so we're motivated to get it done for realz!


  1. I can't wait to see how it progresses and finally turns out. But what is really getting me is, how did you get the shot from the ceiling?!

  2. Haha! I was actually standing on the vanity. Turns out the vanity isn't attached to the wall or the floor so it was pretty unstable and scary, but I prevailed!

  3. I had the same question...
