Ladies and gentleman, drum roll please. We are DONE with the downstairs bathroom! It took us four months start to finish, with a huge learning curve along the way as we learned to do our own plumbing (shower, sink, toilet) and tiling (shower and floor), but we're all the better for it and finally ready to share some pictures.
First, let's take a walk down memory lane....
Sink: The sink stand was made using a simple $50 oak table from the flea market, outfitted with a bowl sink and brushed nickel bridge faucet. The wood looks rather dark in the photos, but does not appear as dark in person.
Mirror: The mirror was a $10 flea market find. It had a layer of chipping veneer, so I soaked it in the tub until the veneer peeled off easily, sanded the wood, and refinished with stain and sealer.
Medicine cabinet: Again, a flea market find for $40. It had a bad paint job, so I sanded and repainted it.
Shower: We used a shower kit to build out the shower curb and floor. Josh poured concrete to angle the floor slightly so that water runs to the drain, rather than pooling. He also added pipes to move the shower head and installed an on/off shower dial in the middle of the wall. We hand cut small square tiles from our slate tile stock and tiled the shower floor and curb. We tiled the shower walls with white ceramic subway tile.
Floor: We tiled the floor ourselves with slate tile from the quarry.
Peg rack: We built a peg rack/towel bar by attaching 4 shaker pegs and this towel bar from the hardware store on a wood plank. We painted the whole thing white then mounted it to the wall.
Thanks all for following along on our first bathroom remodel journey! We are already brainstorming ideas for updates to the upstairs bathroom...
