Today is the big day! I am thrilled to show you our new bathroom!
If you have been following us on this 6 week Renovation Challenge, you will know where we started. My husband Michael did all the work (I helped a little!) and we just love it.
We saved a TON of money doing this ourselves! All in, this whole project cost us about $5k. That includes all the materials like drywall and grout, new lighting, vanity and plumbing fixtures, shower glass, and a few tools. Well, everything except the tile, of course, which was generously supplied by Jeffrey Court for this challenge.
Given the 6 week timeframe, this was a big job. Between company visiting, being sick with a cold, and work- I think my husband deserves a round of applause for getting this done not only on time, but a few days ahead of schedule!
Our cabinet is from Ikea, but we wanted something a little special for the drawer fronts. With all the white and grey, we knew we wanted to soften the hard surfaces with some wood. So we ordered custom drawer fronts from semihandmadedoors.com They make doors and drawer fronts for Ikea kitchens and bathrooms- and I am obsessed. Seriously, This. Is. Genius. The quality is amazing, and I absolutely LOVE them! The matte black fixtures add more contrast.
Another fun feature of this bathroom is the lighting. Being an electrician, it’s not surprising that my husband added a lot of different types of lighting in the space. In addition to the railroad insulator pendant that he made to tie in with the kitchen and dining room, he added color changing LED strips behind the mirror, under the cabinet, and in the shower. Combine that with this Delta Breez bluetooth speaker integrated into the fan, and have a little bit of fun with your morning routine. :)
Thanks for coming along for a tour! Happy renovating! Want to know what the judges had to say?Link here
