Our downstairs bathroom is a real gem. We have marbled green and brown formica counters, 1980s vanity lights, a cracked, moldy tub, and my personal favorite, drop ceilings. Who puts drop ceilings in the bathroom?! Are you ready to lay your eyes on perhaps the ugliest bathroom in Vermont? Behold:
It's a bad scene all around, and since moving to the house the only thing we do in there is give dog baths. Now that the downstairs office & bedroom are almost complete, we're turning our attention to the bathroom, and demo began this week. We removed the medicine cabinet from the wall, took down the drop ceiling, and started removing the plastic shower walls.
Removing the tub and chiseling off the floor tile is slated for later this week, as is a trip to home depot to check out new shower pan and door options. We are thinking simple glass with slate tile. For the sink stand we are planning to use a vintage table found at a flea market with a porcelain bowl sink on top. Since everything in the bathroom is being removed, there is a TON of work to do, but I can't wait to really get going on it. This space has huge potential for improvement, and it will be so nice to have a clean, functioning bathroom for guests when they come to visit.
Stay tuned for the tub removal and tile demo later this week!
Update: As of August, 2013 the bathroom is DONE! Check out the photos of the finished space here.
