Bathroom DIY ...Ranch Reno continues...

Hi All,

It's been a while since I posted something on the "Ranch Reno". Well, we've been working on it but a busy summer and conflicting schedules have kept us from making major steps. They've been more like baby steps. The decision was made to start small, and renovate  the"small"  hall bathroom first. Ok, I'll admit the decision was helped along by the great deal I got on floor tile at the ReStore. I share about that find and the final decision on an accent tile to go with it here. Here's a not so great cell phone pic of the bathroom, before. 

Yes, the walls are a bright red semi- gloss that I'm really looking forward to painting.!!

The room has had some demo work done so that it looks like this right now....

The old floor has been removed and the wood floor has been primed.

I hope  that a pedestal sink will make this room look larger, so that vanity was removed.  I hope the medicine cabinet can be painted and  recessed into the wall over the sink.

The toilet has been removed as we prepare to level the floor.

We used LEVELQUIK, a self leveling underlayment.

The pipes have been exposed so that they can be moved to accommodate the pedestal sink.

The wonderboard is being cut as I type, thinset and lots of screws coming next.

As I planned this bathroom renovation, I looked at a lot of pics online. I pinned a number of them. When I went back to look at them I discovered a theme. I like white, a lot and I love bead board in small bathrooms. I even remembered my first bathroom renovation over 18 years ago, and there was bead board involved!

This is the wall color that we chose:
Behr Marquee ( guaranteed to cover  the red semi gloss in one coat!) in Balboa...

These are a few of the pics that were my inspiration. This should show you where I'm going with this room...



Imagine my surprise when I found this pic after deciding on the paint , bead board, pedestal sink and dark floor!! It's almost just what I planned for this bathroom. I do plan a couple of things that I don't see in this pic but that's almost it.!

Stay tuned, this project is in high gear. Can't wait to get the floor in and the bead board up.
