Updating an old bathroom goodlove dating site
The finish on the tub was worn off, so it was permanently stained and rusted around the drain.
This helped so much until we were ready to tackle the big renovation.
Once the grout project was complete the vanity seemed somewhat tired (read really really dated, and more suitable for cabin/RV use, than a “modern” bathroom”).
Brace yourselves because here’s the horrendous before picture.
As much as I love the colour pink, it’s not the kind of colour you want to see in you main bath.
By covering the pink walls with white paint, all that dated wall and shower tile recedes into the background, like magic!
Since the handy hubby and I are always tackling projects in our own home on the cheap I figured it was finally time to start sharing some of them for others to draw some knowledge and inspiration from.
Besides, I figured, even if we never have any blog followers at least we’ll have a chronicle of our home before and afters for our own sake.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane to summarize how we got here. Feel free to skip to the pretty “afters” at the bottom if you want 🙂 Here is how it looked when Phil bought the house – back when it was a tropical “oasis” with palm tree wallpaper.
None of it was our style, and much of it was in less than ideal condition, but we thought we could update it ourselves.
I have renovation on the brain this month with two kitchens and two bathrooms in the works, so I’m dedicating this week to the topic of remodeling bathrooms!
