Bathroom Reveal!

I need to catch up with you. I have two unfulfilled promises that I never followed up on. You can slap my wrist!

 Promise # 1: I promised back in October that I would show you our costumes. I am disappointed to say we didn't win any contests but just as a refresher we went as X-Men. I was Storm, my hubby was Scott/Cyclops, Jasmine was Rogue, and PB was Professor Xavier.
PB looks like a little boy but that's okay it was only one night :) I should have made sure she had in her pink paci. Oh well! Her suit I showed in a tutorial in the link above and her "shirt and tie" were sewn onto a bib and the edges were tucked in her coat.

Promise #2:  I made a couple weeks before the costumes when I promised to show you our bathroom remodel. It did take us a while (3 months-ugh!) but it has been finished for a while so I need to make the grand reveal!  This project was definitely wayward! There were a ton of set backs but we finally finished around Christmas. It was nice to have our bathroom back finally!

A list of what we did:
  • Tore out the tile on the walls and replaced it with wainscoting
  • Replaced the vinyl flooring we put in right before we moved in with tile
  • Replaced the thresholds, baseboards, and quarter round
  • Touched up paint
  • Framed the mirror
  • Added accessories 


Man that list is a lot shorter than I was expecting. All of those projects are time consuming, though!

Here is a refresher as to what they looked like before we moved in:

For the past 4 years:



Under construction. The walls are ripped out. The floors are mid-tiling project and yes that is the toilet in the bath tub.

And here it is finished up!

My accesories are from Michael's and Walmart :)

This is the only outlet in the bathroom and it used to be two plugs. My number one request since we moved in was to give me an extra outlet :)

Four hooks is so much better than 1 towel rod!
It is so nice to have the bathroom back and it feels like my own spa!

Here I am making good on my promises! I hope you enjoyed!

Nice job!! I remember now when you mentioned it before, I thought wainscoting would be a great way to just cover up the tile in our master bath.

(As we all know, that's as far as my home improvement projects get: thinking.)
