New Year, New Projects: Bathroom Renovation Part 1

Well, hello there friends! I know it's been a while.  We tend to take time off to spend with our loved ones during the holidays, but we are back and we have some great things planned for this year!  

For starters, the new year brings new projects for my household and we decided to go ahead and renovate the kid/guest bathroom.  My husband is doing all of the renovations himself, so it's a little slow going, but we are saving thousands and it's going to look so much better.

The bathroom was very basic.  Standard bathtub with a three piece surround, standard toilet that always clogs (thanks to our 6 year old), a vanity with very little storage, boring white tile, and a basic mirror and light. Before:

I consulted Pinterest for some inspiration:

Our plan is to replace the bead board with shiplap, take out the tub surround and put in white subway tile, replace the flooring with a white and gray textured large tile, new toilet and tub, new dark blue-gray vanity (with better storage), and a new light and mirror.  Sounds easy right?

Here are some of the products that we have purchased:

I cannot wait to show you the final result!  Stay tuned...
