This was the dining room before we closed it off.
This is from the same point of view as the before picture, which is from the kitchen. As you can see we have closed off that wall now and added a little laundry closet. On this new wall we are going to wood plank the whole thing(it's not a very big wall) and add a small desk down low and barnwood shelves up top for displaying goodies:) I'm excited about that!
This is a picture from the master bedroom looking into the new bathroom. This is going to be the new shower. The red stuff is a waterproofing liner we put on before we tile. Probably can't tell a whole lot about the layout or anything because we haven't put the vanity or toilet in yet. It's a very small bathroom but it will be perfect for what we need and I can't wait to add all the finishing touches!
This is the shower floor tile. It's been layed but not grouted yet. I chose a small hexagonal pattern in a Carrara marble looking stone. I love them! They are white tones with a little bit of grey. The wall tile will be white subway tile. I was going for the simple, classic, timeless look. Sorry about the dark pictures, we don't have all the lighting installed yet.
The reason for doing this whole remodel is because we had a 2 bedroom 2 bath house previously. The 2nd bath used to be a 3rd bedroom but the previous owners converted it into a big laundry/bathroom, which was nice to have but after just recently having our 2nd child we really needed that 3rd bedroom back. The only problem was making that back into a bedroom meant losing that bathroom and having to all share one bath. After racking my brain for months and months I finally came up with the idea to close off the dining room and make that a master bath. That way we would have 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Perfect solution...although I loved my little dining room and was a little sad to see it go, it will be well worth it. Plus the dining room has moved to an unused space by the front door by a big window with views of the mountains, so I'm getting used to that:)
So basically we have been living in chaos and Sheetrock dust and I can't wait for it to be done! Not only do I get to decorate my new bathroom but that also means I get to redecorate my sons room, and my daughters new room (they had been sharing a room.) I'm sooo excited about making my sons room boyish and my daughters room girly. Who knew one bathroom project would turn into 10 other projects? haha So I'll be having a lot of reveals in the next few months.
Hope everyone has a Happy Tuesday!
