Bathroom reBuild days 33-45

Well, we have been using our bathroom for a couple of weeks even though it hasn't been entirely done.  But it's usable and that is all that matters!

Since the last post, we added the cabinets, trim, a blind, and finally today - a rug and some new towels!  We still have to install a new cabinet behind the door, fix all the spots on the new walls that got dinged during all the work, and put the heater cover back on (needs to be resized).  The new cabinet has been stained to match all the new trim and the prep work has been done, just need to cut the dry wall back out and get it in there - probably be done this weekend.

The new cabinet will go behind the bathroom door below (we did get a new door knob but haven't decided what to do about the door - I say it goes)

 Another view of cabinets - closer up.
Oh and if you can't tell we did a mixture of brushed nickle and a bronze.  The towel rack, faucet, and toilet paper roll are brushed nickle...the light fixtures and electrical outlet covers are a brown/bronze (almost black looking).

Bathroom ReBUILD day 25-32

Our bathroom is almost done!!  The first shower was taken in there last night and I took one in there this morning!

Day 25
I painted the walls last Monday and then the boys put down the floor boards and tile - of course without banging up the newly fresh painted walls!!!

Tile was laid and plumbing was fixed

Day 26-33
Since then there have been little things added each day...So thankful to have a toilet and sink down here again!

Next was the mirror and overhead light and toilet roll dispenser...and can't forget about the first customer

Next thing we have to do is hang the cabinets and hand towel rack and put the door back up.  We will use the old door for awhile but will get a new one eventually.  Then we will need to add blinds and wood trim!  We are getting there and at least now we can use it!!
