Whew! We are finally done with the 2 part bathroom renovations! I feel a little like I have been run over by a truck, but I'm very pleased with the results! So here's a little background on the project: $1,500 budget for 2 bathrooms, 2 weekends total(1 bathroom per weekend) to complete the project, 3 dedicated and hard workers to get the job done!
I now present to you the "guest" bath(which is technically my brother's bathroom) before photos:
As you can see, the walls were yellow, the cabinetry was ugly old oak, and the floor a builder-grade sheet of linoleum. Not very spa-like, huh?
And did I forget to mention the plastic cove moulding?? You know, the stuff you see in office buildings? Yuck! That had to go.
Now here is a list of what we did:
-goose neck faucet
-towel bar and tp roll
Total cost for this bathroom around $900 with lots of sweat equity!
Keep in mind these bathrooms were done for resale purposes. We wanted it to be buyer friendly and not too personal. I would have preferred a different mirror so as not to be so matchy-matchy, but I was out-voted on this one!
Believe it or not, the goose neck faucet came from Wal-mart! I found them back when we were doing a little work to our bathrooms and I was looking for an affordable goose neck which is very difficult to find. This one comes in right at $40! Can't beat that! Most of the major items came from Lowe's. Aslo, this photo is pre-bifold doors. We had not hung those yet so you can see the laundry area in the reflection.
Overall, it was lots of fun and I think we added lots of value to this once unappealing bathroom! Hopefully the buyers will agree!
I will be back tomorrow with before and afters of the master bath.
