We are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to our bathroom reno. It felt like every step of the way we hit an obstacle. I guess that is to be expected in any renovation, especially when your house is almost 200 years old. This has probably been the most extensive project we have tackled, being that just about everything we ripped out needed to be re-done behind the walls. The plumbing being the worst of it. Well it may be tied with the uneven walls, but unless we wanted to completely gut the space there was no getting around that one, just making the best of it.
Here is our progress so far.
This is where things were left off the last time I should you. Since then we have completed the subway tile around the bathtub, and began to apply the grout.
I also installed the bead board and went with the left over bead board wall paper I had from when I installed it on our kitchen ceiling.
I gave the wood trim 2 coats of the paint I used for the wall paper before installing just to get the initial coverage out of the way.
Once the bead board was dry it was time to paint! I chose Peppercorn by Sherwin Williams which is a really nice charcoal gray with a subtle hint of navy to it.
We also installed the new toilet! Then for the top half of the walls I’m using Simply White by Benjamin Moore, and once my barn wood dries out this spring, we’ll install it to the ceiling to add some warmth and texture to the space. Below you can see a close up of the tile and bead board painted next to each other, and it matches so perfectly with the grout.
We are nearing the finish line, and can see the end in sight, and I can’t wait to show you the final reveal!
