(Inside: Our DIY bathroom remodel. We just love how our bathroom turned out. Don’t worry about DIY projects being perfect. Just work towards creating a home you love.)
My husband and I bought an older home that needed updating. Fixing up an old house, including our bathroom remodel, has been a bucket list thing for us.
My favorite thing about this whole DIY remodeling-our-home-thing is how fun it is to see what my husband comes up with. Carpentry is my husband’s hobby and stress reliever and I had no idea how good at it he was until we started on this house. He amazes me. Here is what he did to our downstairs bathroom.
Before pictures of our bathroom remodel:
I am so terrible at before pictures. We just jump into the project and totally forget. I had to dig up an old photo of the bathroom. That kid is awfully cute, but the bathroom really isn’t. It doesn’t look too bad in the photo but the sink leaked so the vanity had water damage. The tile is broken and outdated – gold flecks. The mirror window thing was just a waste of space. The floor was hard to get clean and had paint all over it. Everything was old – it needed updating
