S#@t Or Get Off The Pot

Remember way back when, I started the EASY basement bathroom reno? Yeah me either 🙂

Any who we hit a few road bumps and I had to bring in a plumber to help finish the job. So much for an easy quick project. After taking a look at the plumbing he was shock that there were no shut offs either.  A few hours of him banging around the old sink was out and I was able to install the new floor. Which would have been easy if the floor was square. Cutting peel and stick tile out around pipes and the toilet was not fun! He came back a few days later to put the new sink in, again not as easy as I thought it would be. Here is a peek back at the old bathroom.

Are you ready for this…?

It looks sooooo much better, yes it turned out to be a pain in the ass but some projects are just like that. Here is a side by side look.

YAY!! 🙂

Change It Up

So I mentioned walking up and down all the isles of Target, which I do way to often. While there I came across a new shower curtain, I had to have it! I’ve been searching for a new look for our main BLUE bathroom for awhile now. Lucky for the hubs it’s not just a sledge hammer. Any who… here she is!

To refresh your memory here was the bathroom before.

And with the new curtain

I really like but I’m a bit concerned it’s to much pattern with the boys locker room floor, what do you all think?

Why Can’t It Be Easy

The basement bathroom project has been humming along until this weekend. I started painting and taking down all the fixtures I didn’t need or want. 1st thing to go was the toilet seat, the new one was only 5 bucks and SO worth it (ewww). Next I made my way over to the vanity and started undoing all the screws that seemed like they were holding it together…and thats where the progress stopped.  I found 2 problems that were above my knowledge.

The lights– I unscrewed it and was expecting to see a junction box. NOPE just this hot mess!

Not really sure where to go from here… any thoughts out there in cyberspace??

The Plumbing- ummm where do I begin? So we have no IDEA where the hot water shut off is, so how does one change out the fixtures then??

The pipe on the left is the hot water line, it go’s into the wall behind the vanity. Leaving the vanity trapped, in its UGLY location. Again anyone out there with any ideas??

So yeah thats where I’m stuck I hate not having this project done already 😦  Here is a peek at how it all looks right this very second.

I laid the new tile down just to see what it would look like.

look how lonely he looks 😦 just waiting for his new home.

OI I hate this mess, and I thought this was going to be a easy little project… boooooooooooooooo.

Don’t Adjust Your Screen

Continuing on my basement reno projects, the small CREEPY bathroom is next on my list. It’s really great to have the extra bathroom down there, but eww it’s just creepy. In-fact I’ve never used it.

Don’t try to adjust the color you are seeing. The wall are a lovely shade of peach. The lights give off nothing but a peach color, kinda oompa loompa. Now my plan for this bathroom redo is going to be cheap and easy. My goal is to keep it under $200 bucks. I’m going to use the paint left over from my master bath redo. The rest is going to be instock items at Lowes or Homedepot.  Here is a sneak peek into what I’d like to do!

Grand total would be $127.22 before tax also if they have these items in stock. Wish me luck!

Master Bath Take Three

Way back when (aka 3 years or so) our master bath was nasty, old, and dirty. We knew it was going to be the 1st thing we remodeled. Heres a look back at the before and after:

Once it was gutted and redone I picked what I thought was a fun bright color!

It was fun for awhile, but I’ve learned that bright colors are better for larger spaces. I’ve been wanting to pick a calmer color for some time now. Thanks to a Homedepot gift card I was able to get paint and a few other treats. For a few weeks we left some samples up to see them in different types of light. Here was the winner

Here are the results, and I couldn’t be happier!!

Bathroom Fun

As you know I kinda enjoy some photoshop magic! Last night I thought what if the hubby and I came into lots of money…? Well for starters I would have an awesome wardrobe DUH! But after that I would work on the house and make it how I see it in my head! Our main bathroom right not is BLUE all BLUE! It’s a great size and works fine, just not my taste.

Don’t you just love the blue sinks?? But like I said its a great size bathroom and functions just fine. Here is what in a perfect world made of free bathroom tile and fixtures would look like!

So anyone want to help me with a new bathroom fund and donate to me 🙂
