Before And After: Half Bath

October 14, 2014


Erin Schrader

In staying on trend with this week’s blog post topics, I figured I would present to you another before and after post from the house. It’s the second room we have “completely finished” and albeit it’s the smallest room in the house, it’s a success none the less. I understand that a half bathroom renovation doesn’t contain quite the same excitement that a kitchen remodel does, but when that half bathroom took three quarters of your life to remove the wallpaper it is definitely worth documenting. This little bath is right off the kitchen area and while I am not sure how much it will be used once our other bathrooms get a complete gutting and face lift, it’s a nice little option for guests.

Here is what the bathroom started out as in her original state [a real beaut I know]…

And here she is as of thirty minutes ago.

Lets talk details for a minute and hash out everything that happened in this little bathroom. For starters, the wallpaper came down by yours truly. The tile was taken out, the walls were painted, the trim was painted, crown molding was hung, Shawn installed the bead board, I painted it all white, a new toilet was put in, a vanity [for less than $100 from Home Depot] was installed, new towel and toilet fixtures went up [from Menards], some new decor was hung, and wham bam thank you ma’m it’s done. The wall color is Watery by Sherwin Williams, the mirror is from Wayfair, the light fixture is from Shades of Light, the rug and towels I just picked up at Target, and the wall decor was random stuff we had from the old house. I think that about covers it. Here are some additional photos of the place. Anybody is welcome to come use our facilities if you so desire 😉

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]
