Basement Bathroom, a story of triumph.

Title sounds more dramatic than this bathroom renovation ever was. I just wanted it to sound like there was a struggle, ya know, to keep things light and interesting. TURNS OUT, this renovation was super quick and easy. Which is always the hope but never the case in home renovations. Allow me to step back in time with this one reaaaaaal quick for ya.


This was back in the day (roughly two years ago) when guests would ask, "hey do you have another bathroom?" and i'd be like yeeeeeahhh but sorry if you get eaten. It was just gross.


Then the basement flooded (#goodtimes) and the carpet was perpetually wet, because OMG carpet shouldn't be in bathrooms PEOPLE.


 So, carpet, sopping wet, was taken out. Then I scrapped off the last of the carpet pad and was left with some lovely concrete floors for far too long!


Also, it was super awesome that the countertops matched the brown toilet seat. I'm sure when the previous owners found a BROWN toilet seat they we just giddy as ever to get that matching combination.


We last left off with the new floors...finally installed. This is one of those one night projects you wish you would have cranked out years ago. Oh well, it was nice to paint the walls prior...and the counter top!


NOW I don't have to be embarrassed when guests use this bad boy.



Love an easy renovation. Still debating putting in a fun mirror right there...haven't found one that fits the space quite yet though...#thingsyoushouldlosesleepover
