I’m excited to finally get some photos together for a bathroom post. We spent a lot of time on it, and we’re really happy with the results! Here’s what we did…
- removed sink, cabinet & toilet
- deep cleaned the aqua tile & grout (this was one of the most time consuming things)
- removed floor tile
- scraped glue from terrazzo floor
- Kelly refinished the tub
- replaced toilet
- replaced sink & installed new faucet
Here’s what we saw when we had our first look at the house. Even though it had that ugly swan shower door staring me in the face, all I could see was the aqua tile. I was so happy it had the original tile in my favorite color! I was instantly inspired.
I immediately started brainstorming about what we could do. First on the list was to remove the shower doors, cabinet/sink and then the toilet.
Then I chipped up the old tile that was placed over the original terrazzo. That task was very satisfying and surprisingly easy.
As soon as I started to remove the glue, I knew it wouldn’t be as easy to remove as the tile. It basically took me all day. But it was sooo worth it!
Once I removed the glue, Kelly started working on refinishing the tub. Here’s a before shot.
After he finished the tub, we let it dry for a few days and then he installed the new sink and faucet.
Here’s my favorite part! The new sink & faucet!
Detail shot of the faucet. Love!
Here’s the refinished tub and new toilet. Kelly did a great job!
So now we’re putting the finishing touches on the bathroom. Here’s what we have left to do…
- install wall cabinet
- install new vanity light
- have mirror cut
- install mirror
We’re getting close and I’ll post pictures soon for part 2 of the bathroom before & after. Have a great weekend!
