Our new house was a one bathroom only!
With our families in Europe and visiting usually for a few weeks (and with a baby on the way), the bathroom became our number one priority!
So today’s post includes no pretty pictures, but it does include where we started!
If you want a complete Tour of the Old House, you know where to look!
Welcome to our (soon to be) ensuite bathroom!!
We knew when we bought the house that we wanted to reshape almost the entire second floor.
My husband and I knew exactly what we wanted : An ensuite bathroom!! (And why not a walk-in closet right!?)
Here’s what the bathroom looked like:
There was absolutely no storage!
And being completely obsessed about cleaning and having everything sorted into container boxes, I had to find the perfect new layout for our bathroom, with a bigger cabinet!
Since we didn’t know if anything was leaking, rusting, failing… ALL HAD TO GO!
So my husband stripped the bathroom down to the studs!
Fancy taking a little shower?!
See our happy (tired) faces during demolition!? It was exhausting spending our weekends tearing down everything!
But also so worth it! (Ok, HE was demolishing, and I was cleaning up, but still !)
Funny thing, during the demolition, we saw a slot inside the original medicine cabinet. When we knocked down the wall, there were hundreds of rusty razor blades flying everywhere! We had absolutely no idea that this was a razor disposal slot!
Demolition only happens once. Here, we had a chance to start over with new materials and gain a peace of mind that nothing was going to cause us any problem in the future.
The room was now ready for a fresh start!
So now you are probably wondering what direction we are headed…
For more bathroom progress, stay tuned!
