Last time you saw our bathroom, it looked something like this:
Well, we’ve been busy around here, and our bathroom now looks like this:
We have a few minor touches to finish (the baseboard trim and adding a little decor), but we are so, so close!
A couple things I learned on this project:
- Hire a plumber and save yourself the headache. We had a plumber come around when we first bought the house about 5 years ago to prep everything, and then brought him back to hook everything up. It only took him about an hour and a half, and it probably would have taken us 4-6 hours to figure out what we were doing.
- We bought the shower before finishing off the rest of the basement so we could buy a one piece shower instead of a three-piece. It pretty much means that maintenance will be a piece of cake.
Now this is my son’s favorite bathroom. For a newly potty trained boy it doesn’t take much for us to get excited around here!
