It’s done! I could not be more happy and proud of how this bathroom remodel came out! The main question I got on my stories when I shared that I was re-doing this bathroom that I had just done 3 years prior was…. but WHY?!
But why do a Bathroom Remodel?
So this guest bathroom was one of the first rooms I did in my house. I was still very much trying to find my style and it didn’t flow with any other room in my house. So…I changed it!
But it's so pretty!
I agree! It was so pretty! I wasn’t going to share what I’m about to share because to be honest, I’m super embarrassed. But I want you to know that not every DIY goes as planned. And sometimes you have to eat your pride for the greater good. I tiled this shower as part of the One Room Challenge (you redo a whole room in 6 weeks so I felt pressured on a time crunch). It was the 6th tile I’ve tiled. And the one I’m least proud of. The walls weren’t plumb (level) when I started and I didn’t realize until it was too late.
Learning with Ya'll
So yes… the tile was 3 years old, yes it looked brand new, and yes I teared it all out because at the time I didn’t have the heart, energy, or money to redo it then. There’s an inner battle for me being a “professional DIYer” on here and showing you how its done, and me showing you that I’m human. And I too make mistakes and I’m learning right with ya’ll.
Here is what the bathroom remodel looked like before.
Here is the bathroom remodel after!
This room on the blueprints of my home was actually part of our utility room, just a useless little hallway to nothing, but my dad who is a plumber came up and moved drains and chipped concrete for a week to get it so we could have another toilet and shower downstairs.
Tearing everything out was very frustrating but I know it was the right choice. I wanted to feel proud of this space, and want to show it off to others. Not hide it away like I did for the last 3 years.
