Bathroom remodel - before

I cannot believe I have sat on this makeover for as long as I have. I finished remodeling my bathroom back in July, but it has been so busy I have not had the chance to take great pictures of it and share with ya'll. They say a bathroom and a kitchen are what sells a house. I tend to disagree - I would prefer to redo it myself and make it exactly what I want. My bathroom was not in terrible shape, but it had some issues

The black and white vintage tile is very pretty, but it was chipped in several places. The townhouse was built in 1940, so there is also not much storage in there. There is a tiny closet and a tiny vanity, but that's all she wrote. It is NOT enough room for four people and all their crap. Especially when Mr. Muscles has a lot of beard maintenance stuff and my teenage boy is accumulating a lot of hygiene stuff (FINALLY!). Did I mention I have a 9 year old daughter who will soon accumulate a lot of beauty and hair stuff? I'm sure you can see my problem

I did not get a before picture of the closet before construction started. But, it has only a few shelves and was not very pretty or organized. To add to the problem, we do not have a hall closet, so all of our towels, toilet paper and other goodies were all shoved in this closet

The bathtub is a nice size but there are also chipped tiles in there, and the towel bar fell down. I am pretty picky, and I felt like I could never get my shower clean enough. No matter how much I scrubbed it still felt dingy, old and slightly dirty

Here is a close up of the floor, as you can see there are a few tiles missing. The overall pattern is pretty, and I love vintage tile, but I wanted something different

On the to do list:
  • re-tile the floor
  • re-tile the bathtub
  • add bead board walls
  • install a new vanity
  • install a new light
  • solve my storage problem
  • redo the closet
  • decorate
Here is a little sneak peak of the direction I am going with this project. I cannot wait to do the big reveal, its one of my favorite projects yet!


  1. I love the new tile!! I'll be excited to see what the final product looks like!

  2. I'm curious with the result. It is nice when decorating something.
