Todays post is a shorter one for those of you who aren’t following me on Instagram (it’s addicting I tell ya) and who think I’m not DIYing much lately. I know it appears like I haven’t been doing much besides installing new things.
I have been doing little things here and there though. I promise and I’m planning and scheming things for sure.
One of the major things I’m thinking about and started to tackle already is our yucky master bathroom. Now we have two baths that look totally identical and I shortly blogged about one when I introduced you to our new shower head HERE. Now the photos look pretty good in that post. Something like this, right?
In reality the place looked more like this last week:
And when I removed the old vanity light strip I was shocked to see that the builder didn’t even put an electrical box in the wall. The cable is just sticking out of the drywall. That’s a no-no and needs to get fixed as well.
I have been trying to work on getting the bathroom to a blanks canvas and am deciding on several things. Here are my bathroom plans so far: I want to rip out the old vanity since the storage is simply not working for us at all. My husband and I both fell in love with the Ikea GODMORGON floating vanity. The two deep drawers are a storage dream and perfect for a small space.
Now the problem is that I will have to fill in the spot of missing tiles under the vanity. I do have enough left in storage to do just that but am actually considering ripping it all out and replacing it with something new and beautiful. I can keep the checker board in the other bathroom. No need to have two identical bathrooms, am I right?
And in a perfect world I would rip out that darn shower too and tile it to have a pretty walk-in shower. But I don’t think my budget allows that. But I guess never say never. This all started with just wanting to paint this bathroom and putting in a new mirror and light and escalated into something much bigger.
I’m happy to say I have reached a point already where it’s not an entire mess anymore and I’m considering picking up that vanity this week or next.
That’s the rug I posted about two weeks ago and I love it on the tile put have a DIY in mind with it too.
Oh and speaking of this rug, did you see the other rugs they just got in at Urban Outfitters? I want them all:
Can’t have them all though 🙁
That’s it for today. I got lots of work to do. Finished most of my major tax work! Finally! Have to work on our annual huge photo book yet and of course the scary patio style challenge. With this weather, it’s truly scary.
