Master Bathroom Remodel Part III {Before + After}

After months and months of hard work, blood, sweat, tears, and a lot of lessons learned {refer to my last master bathroom update}, the biggest DIY project we've ever attempted is FINALLY complete, and we couldn't be happier with it!  It was a long road getting to this point, but the finished product turned out just as luxurious as we imagined in the beginning. 

The two most important lessons I learned along the way:
 
1. I will never attempt a project this major again {unless maybe I have no job and can work on it all day, every day. and even then, probably not}.  I think both Matt + agree that while it did save us a decent amount of money, it was not really worth the time and stress that we had to deal with for over 9 months.  Maybe worth it to some.  Not worth it to me.  I'm all about quick turn-arounds on my projects now!  {stay tuned for a quick Powder Room makeover in the works}
 
2. I can do it!  And if I can't do it, then I can learn to do it by watching videos on YouTube!  During this project, I learned how to: remove tile, replace a wooden subfloor, frame out a shower floor, bench + wall niche, remove drywall, replace drywall (wall + ceiling), install an exhaust fan + can lights, wire electric for said fan and can lights, tile + grout a floor, and install a vanity, countertop + trim.  Not to mention the countless power tools I learned to use for the first time!

Without further ado, here is our BEFORE:








And, here is our AFTER:








It may be hard to tell from the pictures, but not one thing in the whole bathroom is original.  It was completely gutted and updated.  Good-bye dated tub, tiny shower + rotting subfloor!  Hello dream bathroom with rain shower head + pretty glass tile!  I love you.

Thanks for reading guys!

  1. You can find a amount of different steps that you just can take to make it easier that you should remodel your bathroom, all by your self. Perhaps, the easiest way is to familiarize yourself using the task that you simply will be executing. bathroom remodelers in Covina

  2. If your bathroom is the superhero of your home than the exhaust fan is Alfred, a humble behind-the-scenes kind of guy who simply keeps things running smoothly and in tip-top shape. diy-bathrooms.com
