It is done! The small bathroom that our kids share is renovated and finally back in use! This bathroom renovation was one DIY project after another, and I've got plenty of tutorials planned over the next several months. Today, however, I just want to share a few before and after shots.

So . . . here are some embarrassing photos of our kids' bathroom right before I tore everything apart:

Small Bathroom : Before Renovation

Small Bathroom Renovation Before Shot

Ugh. There is really just so. much. wrong. The junky, builder-grade bathroom vanity cabinet was made from mostly particleboard and cheap plywood. . . it was literally falling apart. The linoleum, the beige tiles, the light fixture, the plastic towel ring . . . it's probably not even necessary to point out everything here that wasn't working. Nothing is.

Here you can see a little more of the small bathroom pre-renovation. Delightful, isn't it? ?

And here's a nice view of the bathroom countertop (pink!!!) and light fixture:

Small Bathroom DIY Projects

 

As I mentioned above, nearly everything in the bathroom was a DIY project. Some of those projects have already been featured on the blog:

There's lots more though, and I'd love to hear what you'd like to see next:

  • I ripped out the linoleum and put in new flooring
  • I designed and then built the floating vanity
  • Jim and I added subway tile to ALLLLL the walls.....
  • We created and tiled a shower niche
  • We replaced the shower valve
  • We installed a new toilet
  • We hooked up a new bathroom faucet
  • I put in new trim
  • I made a wooden soap dish
  • I made a brass and wooden towel rack

 

Do any of those sound interesting to you? Would you like to see the details/how-to's of any of those projects on House Becoming Home? Let me know in the comments!
