We were finally able to move into our house two weekends ago! It's been a long process with quite a few major events interrupting the renovation schedule. But, we made it!!
I mentioned on Facebook that while the main projects are now finished and the rooms are all livable that nothing is completely ready for final, finished, and fully decorated reveals. That led me to suggest showing what we do have done in each room and detailing the plans for finishing them up.
So welcome to the first in our series of Progress and Plans posts.
The before pictures don't really do justice at just how nasty the bathroom was. Peeling moldy olive green wallpaper, green crusty fixtures, and 4 different types of green tiles.
The bathroom was built using an existing porch structure so the ceilings are lower than normal. We wanted the space to feel bright and open.
For now white walls and trim look fresh with a beveled white subway tile surround, a rounded white tub, gray/white octagon and dot floor tile, and a Dried Lavender milk painted vanity.
A sheer floral scarf from Walmart adds privacy while casting pretty muted tones. I can't resist pretty floral patterns! I picked up a second scarf to hang if we decide we want 2 panels.
The brightly framed cottage garden crewelwork was bought on Etsy. The yarn is faded but one of the flowers now shares the exact same lavender shade as the vanity!
We dropped in a Kohler Farmington sink bowl with widespread fixture holes. The faucet and tub/shower hardware are the Caldwell series by Moen.
2. Hang mirror: This antique dresser mirror is a beast. I want to get it up off the vanity and hanging on the wall. If you have a suggestion on how to hang it and have it stay put I'd love to know!
3. Toilet paper holder/storage: This tank top basket isn't cutting it and a standard roll holder would have to be hung in an awkward position from the toilet. I'm hoping to purchase this toilet paper holder basket from Pottery Barn to fill the space.
4. Hang towel ring: We picked up the matching Caldwell towel ring to hang beside the vanity. Just need to put it up!
5. Build in shelves: The closet on the other side of the bathroom wall was used to put in the HVAC ducts. We bumped out the bathroom into some of the leftover space to add some additional storage. Three shelves, finishing paint, and baskets and it'll be good to go.
