I thought we were going to live with the 85% bathroom update for a while. But we got a little shove to take it to 98% done now. 🤣 What this means is that we redid the flooring! Yay! And we added a mirror and a couple more custom shelves in the laundry room.

We used snap-in wood and vinyl flooring and it was super easy! Except for dealing with the uniqueness of an antique house with crooked walls and missing trim, etc, but we managed and it’s been amazing and seems super durable already. We ended up going with large quarter round as trim because we need to hide some of those flaws from a very old house. But I love the look here!

The ONLY thing left is to replace the faucet. Soon. We are going to live with the sink and counter top for a while, but I can deal with that.

How cute are the little shelves holding laundry items?! We made them the same way, with plumbing pipes and hand whitewashed boards.

Remember, this is a mini refresh, (see the before shots, yikes, 2 posts back!) not a total overhaul, so this girl will still have to dream of one day having a stacking washer and dryer and wall cabinetry. This is gorgeous to me for now! 😉

One More Sneak Peak- Countertops

April 20, 2009 at 7:50 am (Inspiration, Projects) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So, I guess I should have, but I didn’t plan for the unexpected road blocks when finishing the kitchen.  Like, accidentally buying a couple too few hinges!  It is done, but not picture ready.  So I have one more sneak peak for you until then.  Here is the sample card for the counter-tops we are getting.  I originally wanted pure black, but there is no standard laminate in pure black.  I picked black because it was to look like slate.  Laminate is, unfortunately, what we can afford right now.  So, this was the most black laminate we could get.  It is probably going to look like marble.  This may be great to some, but I am concerned it is too far from my original vision.  Will it look to country?  It does tie in the browns from the floor and the white from the cabinets.  It will take about two weeks to get them in since they are extra long… so please, ease my mind until then!  No, really, give me your true opinions!
