Finishing Up

The MR finished the guest bathroom remodel earlier this week. First it was the shower.

Then it was the tile under the window.

That left the counter, the sink and the light fixture. The counter, sink, and faucet were a package deal, but someone failed to mention that to the manufacturer. The store received our custom-cut counter without a sink which put everything on hold for a while.

Meanwhile, the MR had bought and installed a new light fixture. After our old, dim lighting system, it was a bit on the bright side, so he also added a dimmer. We don’t want our guests to feel like they’re being interoggated, or do we?

If we do this again, I’ll have to take pictures before he installs them in a very dark room with no windows.

The sink arrived before we left on our trip, but the MR decided to wait until after we got home to install it—just in case. He didn’t want the housesitter left without a working bathroom. Turns out he was right. While the counter fit perfectly, the sink was a bit deeper than the old one, and the stopper was too low to fit with the current plumbing. He ordered a pop-up stopper which came in the mail this week, and now we’re good to go.

He used the same accent tile featured in the shower as the back splash.

Our new bathroom is so subdued compared to where we started.

I’m hoping our guests appreciate it as much as I do. The MR has been checking a few other things off his to-do list this week, but that will have to wait till next time. You’re going to be amazed.

Any bathroom updates at your house? Remodeling horro stories to share?

  1. I love the way it all turned out, especially the light fixture and the tile, and then shower doors, and the faucet………..well I guess that is just all of it!! Thank you, and we will enjoy using it on our next trip up. Your MR is certainly able to do so many ‘honey-do’,things around the house, as well as huge projects both inside and out. Since we remodeled in some way, 12 houses, I know we must have had quite a few horror stories, but the one I remember the most was when he was working on one of our rentals and put something on the heard wood floor, just prior to someone lighting a torch to work on the plumbing, and it exploded and blew off the roof. Fortunately nobody was hurt, but it did take awhile to put the new roof on, but made for a great story.
