Read all the details on how we remodeled a tiny bathroom, added 3 feet more space and gutted everything but the tub and toilet. Projects include new shower tile, painted bathtub, fence board shelves and cabinet, bead board, new plumbing and fixtures, a repurposed old window and thrifty accessories.
Cost: $2000 Difficulty: Advanced
Complete homeowner/blogger DIY project (minus the plumbing) in outdated small bathroom.
Repurposed fence board bathroom cabinet with dollar store baskets with new vessel sink and faucet.
Cabinet is left open so that plumbing is still accessible. Guest towels available in yard sale baskets.
Before and After : Bead board paneling, repurposed fence board cabinet and blue dollar store baskets. Also scrapbook paper used on old repurposed bathroom cabinet door fronts.
Bathroom enlarged by 3 feet and hidden shelving installed by cutting into sheetrock and adding custom built shelves with plastic baskets to store bathroom necessities.
Closeup of storage carved out from sheetrock. These shelves are so narrow that these are the only organizers that would work in this space.
$2 CD rack turned on its side for bathroom towels storage and decorative element.
Old window used as a mirror and medicine cabinet door.
Before and After of the shower that was gutted down to the tub, plumbing/leakage issues fixed (only professional work done), new floor, beadboard and decor.
Shower was tiled using Bondera adhesive and tub painted, both by homeowner.
