Bathroom Reno Peek

No matter what our future holds, one thing's for sure, the old harvest gold upstairs bath has to be redone. Many of the tiles are cracked and falling off the wall and the grout is either gone, stained, or chipped.

So here are a few shots of the demo and a pic of the new laminate, sink, faucet, and tile. If it looks familiar, we used the same laminate and tile from our kitchen makeover. Not only was this the most cost effective route, it keeps the house consistent.

We were hoping to stay under $200 for the far we're at :

  1. Faucet     $25
  2. Sink        $25
  3. Laminate $27
  4. Glue        $12
  5. Tile         $14.50
  6. Adhesive & Grout $0-Leftover from Kitchen Makeover
         TOTAL- $ 103.50

We have chosen Raffia Cream by Behr for the walls:
This looks much better on the's a very rich and deep creamy color.
The walls are in BAD shape, I've been removing 2 layers of wallpaper and some of the wallboard is chipped up. Ugh! I do have to say it was pure pleasure tossing that tile in the trash!!! Bye-bye harvest gold!!
One of the pretty layers;)

  2. So pretty. You have such an eye for decorating :)
