Bloggy Home Tour Part One - Bath

Hey Everybody! A few weeks ago I asked you if you'd like to see a little bit of my home and do a bit of a I'm starting off the tour with our bathroom renovation (which isn't really finished yet).

We did this little remodel ourselves, on the weekends etc.

Here's the BEFORE & AFTER:

When we moved in this is how the bathroom looked (left pic). One sink and a small vanity area. Glazed stone/marble floors and oatmeal colored tile...ugh.

To change up the space we used a buffet we already owned and purchased two sinks online at $80 a piece. It was difficult finding faucets to fit the sinks, but we were able to make these from Amazon work. I tiled right over the marble floors with large 12 inch tiles from Home Depot (around 85 cents each). We splurged on a "square" low flow toilet and school house lighting.

After we ripped out the tile we saved time and energy by cladding the walls in strips of pine so it looks a bit barn-like. This is super affordable...about $40 for all the walls. We then primed the wood and have yet to paint it white.
The square mirrors were purchased on clearance at Target (I think they're actually trays) for $12.99 (reg. $50).

To completely finish this space I still would like to stain all the wood trim darker to match the vanity base (which is not black, but dark espresso), add baseboards all around and make a threshold piece to fill the gap between the tile and the wood floors in the hallway, and change out the shower door to oil rubbed bronze instead of the nickel.

We completed this project for under $1000! (Thanks to our friend David who did the demo work too!)
