Demo on the master bath is, well, occurring at the very moment I’m writing this.
Goodbye black mirrors. Goodbye oddly designed vanity.
Goodbye upright coffin masquerading as a shower.
Goodbye to the thing that made me laugh the hardest the first time I walked into this house… the hallway toilet.
I expect this is going to be a six week project, minimum. (Everyone get out your secret DIY decoder rings, add in two unexpected project delays, multiply that by new project insomnia, divide by my desire to have a goddamn bath tub, and we’re probably looking at ten weeks, realistically.)
And then there’s the part where I have to pick everything out rightthisminute.
Here’s what I’m leaning towards (you can see the full pinterest board here)….
White walls, with a dark gray natural stone subway tile halfway up the wall. Undecided floor tile. Dark to match the walls? Lighter basket-weave? Not sure yet.
Bright yellow piece of furniture re-purposed as a vanity. New light fixture.
Wood stacked in the non-functioning fireplace to create some privacy between the bedroom and bathroom.
And, the other big decision…
I’m not sure which way I’ll go yet. What I know is that after the bigass bubble tub that was in the last master bath I built, I’m going a lot simpler this time.
So that’s the inspiration. Here’s the list of things to do:
- Demo, demo, demo.
- Repair subfloor, probably
- Frame in new shower/toilet wall
- Install new bathroom door
- Rough in new plumbing and electric
- Install radiant floor heat
- Tile, tile, tile, tile, tile
- Patch old skylight hole + install wood ceiling
- Install new light fixture
- Build vanity
- Build replacement window
- Install sink and toilet
- Tile shower
- Have glass shower door installed
And thaaaaaats going to take fucking forever, but it will be awesome when it’s done.
