So, I’ve Been Thinking…

These few words cause my loving husband to roll his eyes and say oh crap.  We have been talking about how within the next few years we want to redo the guest bathroom and the kitchen.  Then our house will have been completely remodeled.  So, I brought up the idea that I want the guest bathroom to be remodeled by the time we had a baby.  I really thought I would have a battle ahead of me with Jeremy, but he just thought about it and started talking about what we could do!  HELLO!  That was easy :)

Here is our plan… GUT the bathroom!  Nothing stays.  Sounds nice and inexpensive.  But, we think that we can do all the labor ourselves, actually we know we can.  That cuts down our cost by a HUGE amount.  We want to put in a new vanity with a granite counter, new tub, new toilet, new tile floor, tile up the wall around the tub, texture the walls, paint, and new mirror, and perhaps even some lighting too.  Anything else we are missing?! HaHa!

Not sure when we will actually start this.  Hopefully, sometime this fall when it isn’t 100 degree out. 

Here are some pictures of people’s remodels and just different bathroom ideas that I like.  Although, some of the pictures I only like one certain aspect of the bathroom, but maybe you will like the whole shabang.  Who knows what we will actually do!

Wow quite a task! I agree that you should do it before a baby comes along ... otherwise your bathroom will look like ours. Half torn down wallpaper. I also suggest you make it baby/kid friendly since it will end up being their bathroom. :) Good luck!

We did all the work ourselves and gutted down to the dirt (pier and beam house) to redo the plumbing. The only thing we had built for us was the cabinetry that we added to what existed and we bartered that for some photography. If you are adding new flooring, I highly recommend putting in a heated floor. CHEAP if you do it yourself and the most wonderful thing in the world in the winter. It's also good for warming your towels and undies after a bath and for speeding up bread rising when your in a time crunch.
