Here is the project that my daughter and I have worked on since Christmas. I will invoke the royal "we" on this project, but I did not furnish any labor. ha! I have been working with the HGTV Sherwin Williams Paint folks and since my rooms have been recently painted (3 years ago) I asked if they would be interested in sponsoring a bathroom project at my daughter's new house. Here is the rest of the story.
Project, “Remodel the 90s Bathroom”

They were originally looking at much older homes (sixties ranches) for character, style, etc. I believe that after they saw how much they would have to do to rehabilitate a very old home...they decided to look at "newer" homes.
This newer nineties house got an "A" from the home inspector, so that was a relief. All the house needed was some updating of finishes. (Insert mom comment: Whew!)
The fact that they have day jobs means that they are into DIY on the weekends, nights, and holidays. They both work for large universities...though not the same ones, and having a academic calendar can help some.
Today I am bringing you the guest bath update.
It is our grand's private bathroom unless there are guests in the house. ha! At which point she refers to it as the "public" bathroom. (Ah, eleven year old divas! ha!)
Long story short, this nineties bathroom has been brought up to this decade with some "simple" updates. Labor intensive, but still simple updates!
|Nineties vinyl wallpaper! It had to go!|
She remembered helping me remove wallpaper from her childhood bathroom...pink with white dots. ha! It was a rough go. Now twenty-five or so years later she still remembers that painful wallpaper removal. But, she got lucky with this paper!
|Nineties oak vanity which will be receiving a dark stain soon.|
|The paint color changes depending on the light.|
Daughter wanted to go with a fresh white shower curtain and fluffy white towels with the grey paint. They now have a nice crisp, clean updated look.
And the last part of the update is to install a new tile floor. The current floor is vinyl. They are not going to diy this update, but rather find a professional. Mom agrees!
Many of my Kentucky readers may be home...as lots of school has been canceled today. From the look of things there will not be school tomorrow either. (We have to cancel school in the the hilly parts of the state because school buses cannot manage those crooked, hilly roads. Just too dangerous.)
If you are snowed in today, stay warm, stay safe, and enjoy nature's pretty snow.
