Hello and welcome to our guest bath…Go ahead and take a look around.

The guest bath or as we call it, “The kids bathroom.” This room was full of surprises that we could have went without. After find a massive leak in the master bathroom toilet we found that exact same leak in this room. We found that the previous owner did not set the toilet properly causing no seal between the toilet and the flange. So each time the toilet was flushed water either went down the pipe or it went into the subfloor. Once I pulled up the floor and got down to the subfloor we found nothing but completely rotted wood. We had to take up the old subfloor and completely replace it with new. Really frustrating considering we only owned the house for a month. But here is the photos that entail this rooms renovation so far.

The first project I tackled in this room was taking down the gold shower doors. I absolutely loved taking these hideous doors down but did not enjoy cleaning up the molded and germ ridden caulk that was left over on the tub. Getting rid of these doors really opened up the room and updated it completely by adding the fresh white shower curtain. We are going to be adding a curved oil rubbed bronze shower rod in the near future just to update and open up the space more.

The builder grade mirror was removed and replaced with a Better Homes and Gardens oil rubbed bronze mirror from Wal-Mart. Really updates the space.

The vanity was sanded and painted white which also brightened the space up and again eliminated the dark wood to obtain uniformity throughout.

After the sub-floor was installed we finally got to do the fun part…Remove the popcorn ceiling texture. What a difference this makes and updates the space tremendously.

Next I painted the entire room Behr Modern Grey which turned out awesome then we put in the Allure flooring we purchased from Home Depot. This flooring is really easy to install and creates such a durable flooring option.

Once the flooring was complete we installed the toilet properly and then replaced the freshly painted vanity. What a difference.


Next we put in new 1×6 baseboard that we painted and caulked to create a much more finished look. After tackling that project I took on creating a faux crown molding in the bathroom that really turned out great. What do you think?

After a trip to Home Depot I found a new faucet for our sink for $30.00! They had three in stock so each of our bathrooms got new faucets. I was one happy girl!
