Labor day weekend we planned on doing some quick updates to our bathroom. This would involve pulling out our nasty old tub and replacing it, as well as replacing the sink. Long weekend project? You bet! By Friday night, I had everything yanked out except the tub which Jason helped me do when he got home.
However, Saturday didn’t go as planned, Jason and Grandpa thought they would “quickly” fix something else first. You can read all about my frustrations here.
So, our long weekend project took a bit longer than a weekend. And then since I wasn’t home much to work on the finishing parts… Well, lets just say, a month later, we are finally done! (except for one piece of trim board lol)
Here is the before photo:
Glass shower doors are ok, until you try bathing a child in there. I was freaking out the whole time I was giving my 11 month old nephew a bath, because I realized if he went face down I couldn’t reach him very easily.
The old sink was nice, but the cabinet stuck out into the room a ways making a small bathroom, feel smaller.
Here is what our tub looked like before.
That sink is only a little bit narrower than the old one, but doesn’t stick so far out into the room. This also makes it easier to get to the tub. I hung the shower curtain we used at the rental and it will work for now.
Since I lost some of my under the sink storage, my awesome hubby whipped this up for me, using dollar store baskets I bought several years ago. Those baskets slide in and out as if they were drawers.
And because I went for over a month with bare-bones bathroom, I’m still enjoying having my decor up. So here’s a photo of that (The cool clock came from Mary & Martha when they had their clearance sale this summer)
