Guest/Kids Bathroom Renovation – Before

Thank you Jeffrey Court for sponsoring todays project! As always, all opinions are our own. 

Bathroom Renovation

I’m so excited to share that we will be blogging about our most recent DIY renovation. We’ve been in our “new-to-us” house for the past 2.5 years and have done countless projects. However, with now two children we rarely have the time to document those said projects. We were invited by Jeffrey Court to comet in a One Room Challenge (ORC) and we accepted the offer. The best part is that we were already planning to rip out the kids bathroom and bring it up to date. The ORC is a win-win-win for us.

  1. Jeffrey Court has supplied us with ALL our tile (you guys, they have some amazing tile)!
  2. The challenge lights a fire under our butt to get this bathroom done within a month time frame (without the challenge I’m sure we would have been dragging this out by a few months).
  3. We have a chance to win $5,000 dream vacation getaway!!! The ultimate icing on the cake. We love some travel!

Over the next few weeks we will be sharing step-by-step each process of our remodel. We are doing 95% of the remodel on our own! The only thing we are hiring out is the taping and texturing of the drywall.

Here are some before photos of our very ugly and builder grade diginy guest/kids bathroom.

First order of business… the door! We are changing it to a pocket door! We have to move the electrical to make this all work.

The hideous floors that were throughout our entire house. The bathroom and laundry room is the last two rooms that we have it in. I can’t wait until it’s gone forever!

More dark dinginess! The bathroom and toilet are being replaced with new white not almond color units.

We are also adding a light in the shower/bath area. We need more light in this interior bathroom.

We had the countertops replaced back in December and had to rip off the mirrors. Me not thinking–never took before photos. So this is what you get. We added a second sink so when the time comes both kids can brush their teeth at the same time. We found an awesome mirror/medicine cabinet combo that we are installing above the sinks!

As you can tell our bathroom is small and we are trying to maximize the space–make it lighter, brighter and roomy! Stay tuned, I’ll be sharing our vision board and demo in the coming week!
