My Intro...Pic HEAVY


We started tackling the main bathroom a few weeks ago...I was pleasantly surprised to find no rot or mold from 30 years of use. Let's hope my work holds up for another 30. It should...I went crazy with sealer, caulk, PVC trim etc. All material was used to manufacture's instructions but I increased some of the drying/curing times just to be safe.

Before.




Re-purposing the vanity for my wife's Beach Cottage Theme. Raised the vanity and added spindle legs in front and 2X6 bracing under and along the back.




Stained and 7 coats of Tung oil.




We have another full bath and and 1/2 bath but the main bath was done in little stages so my family could still use it...Here is a completely useable bathroom.


I removed the bottom 4' of sheet-rock around the room so I could insulate the interior walls for sound purposes.

Vinyl plank flooring…Thought I would give this product a try.


To make guests more comfortable we installed a taller/longer dual flush toilet


Bad pic…It’s not really that dark in there.


Open storage…No more closet door.

Looks great, I really like the little touches like the dock cleats for towel hooks and the vanity top looks great, what did you make it out of?

Who ever thought a green toilet, tub and sink was a good idea lol.

Me. That's why I asked if he was going to keep them. I am curious to see how everything looks with them in the end.

I bought a $10 2"X12"X8', cut it half, ripped those 2 pieces in half...Then flipped the grains and glued them together.

Nice work so far. Those are some ugly bathrooms that you're transforming. I can't believe that they were ever in style.

I REALLY like this bathroom - I wish I could implement this style/theme of bathroom into my house, but it would look funny with the rest of the rooms. Hmm... maybe the new bathroom in the basement.

I also really like that countertop. It has me thinking. Heck, for $10, it could suffice as a temporary thing for my wetbar (if the boss doesn't like it and insists on stone), but should look just as good as a permanent fixture.
