Remember almost a month ago when I posted here about the near completion about the project? Well I realized that I never did do the final recap – so here it is!
We went from this:
|What used to be the shower on the far left and the vanity|
|The wall where we ripped out tile around the vanity area|
|New paint, new beadboard walls, new mirror and light fixture|
|We took the doors off the cabinet above the toilet – I love the open spa-like feel of it.|
|We even have new towel bars! But we reused the sink and toilet to save us some cash!|
|IN LOVE with my new shower. Love the tile. Love the rain shower head. Love, Love, Love.|
|Now this is what I like to wake up to!|
|Patched the wall (left) where the old TP holder was and got a fancy new one!|
Yeah – we still have two pieces of trim to put up – as well as one tiny section of beadboard near the shower. But it’ll get done eventually – right?! I wish there were little elves that could come over and “finish” all the little projects in my house.
Or maybe I should do all the finish work before starting the next project! ha – silly girl. That would NEVER happen. I’m a remodelaholic – I love starting a new project!
I wish I had the break down of costs – but since the project was almost 11 months long, I have no idea what we spent on stuff. Here’s what I do know:
Tile – Rialto Noce from Lowe’s ($2.28 sq ft) 12 x 12 in porcelain tile
Accent Tile – I can’t seem to find it on Lowe’s website, but it was about $11 for a 12 x 12, that we cut in half to get the narrower accent trim in the shower
Grout – Custom Building premixed sanded grout in Sandstone from Home Depot ($20.97 x 2)
Beadboard – Cape Cod MDF Beadboard Planks 3 pck from Home Depot ($17.97 x 6?)
Chair Rail – Knotty Pine Beadboard Trim Pack from Home Depot ($15.98 x 2?)
We scored the shower head from TJ Maxx (of all places!) for $30, and bought the simple replacement shower handle for $32 from Home Depot.
The mirror was a clearance purchase from TJ Maxx – but of course I can’t remember what I paid for it – maybe $40 or $50?
And the light fixture was from Lowe’s, the Bel Air 3-Light brushed nickel vanity light for $60
