Guest/Baby bath remodel

by Shelly

We just moved to our new big, wonderful new home a short 6 weeks ago, but of course the “we’ll eventually do that” bathroom ended up being one of the first large projects we decided to knock out. What facilitated our decision to conquer the bathroom was two things: 1) our 2 year old would have NOTHING to do with it..no baths in that room for her and 2) our dearest German friends were coming mid-September for a two week visit to the states. So we decided to do a “small” redo on the room…yeah right!!

Actually, I should admit that I was asked by my hubby to just take off the wallpaper, so we could paint the room. Unfortunately, I can’t locate the pic before I painstakingly scrapped off all the wonderfulness that was our Tommy Bahama palm tree explosion. But it was very early 1990′s with LOTS of palm trees and complete with not just one wallpaper border over the actual main wallpaper, but TWO! UGH UGH UGH!

                           So here is the lovely bath after the paper came down. Awesome huh? Looks like a lot of apartment bathrooms I’ve had in the past!
Well once the paper came down the other half and I decided to just go full speed ahead. So here we are just three days before our friends are due to arrive and we still have nothing, but the tub in place. Long story short, we went with a handyman that was VERY lazy and then got “sick” Tuesday and well, we haven’t seen him since. So, I contacted some other installers and first thing this am, I have two guys here to lay the shower and floor tile. Tomorrow morning the new vanity is being installed, as well as the vanity marble. Here are are the fabulous details going into our vintage inspired bath….
Restoration Hardware Framed Inset Medicine Cabinet
Grohe “Seabury” 8″ Widespread Faucet
 

Grohe “Seabury” Tub/Shower Faucet
 

Pottery Barn Mercer Double Sconce in Satin Nickle
 
  PB Mercer Bath Fixtures
 

1″ Unglazed Hexagon Floor Tile
 

Ann Sacks 3 x 6 subway tile for shower walls
 
 
Kohler Devonshire Soaking Tub
 

Kohler Devonshire Undermount Sinks
We’re hoping and praying that the new guys can knock this bathroom out by Tuesday! Please cross your fingers and toes for us. I would so love this to be all ready for our amazing friends and their baby!!!  Stay tuned for after pics.
