This corridor tub transform was a lengthy time coming! So happy to have this light, shiny and airy place that is eventually visitor-ready!
I am finally revealing the very last area to be reworked in this property! All of the important remodels are now done. I just can’t feel I’m even indicating that. lol
It’s been a really (incredibly!) prolonged time coming. It will be 18 many years in June that we have lived here. That is a extensive time to be operating on a residence, y’all. ha!
We do have a several points to finish up above in our bedroom but we are arranging to get again on that before long. (just small complete kind things)
AND we plan to transform one particular of our bedrooms into a visitor bedroom. (it is at this time our “stock” home for the retailer but we have ideas to shift that somewhere else) I’ll be sharing the guest area as we do it so stay tuned for that.
And of course, if you ended up thinking due to the fact I have stated it a bunch, we are however arranging to promote and go. Sadly, we located nothing at all in the last year+ that we loved enough to go into. We have been wanting the full time! We want selected items and just under no circumstances located them all in a person household. We could stop up obtaining land and developing in the upcoming so for the time remaining, we are likely to settle back into becoming here and allowing it go for a bit. That is alright, it provides us a likelihood to get pleasure from all the work we’ve finished in this residence (and perhaps do even more…you know us!! lol)
But today, it’s all about this hall tub transform. I am thrilled with it!
Corridor Bath Rework Expose
Ok, so you may well be questioning why it claims “x2” up there. Which is for the reason that we actually gave this corridor bathtub a mini-makeover quickly following transferring in. Sort of how we gave our kitchen 2 mini makeovers ahead of supplying it the comprehensive rework we did a short while ago.
Let’s commence at the very beginning, shall we?
Brace yourselves, haha, these shots were Never meant to be witnessed by anyone besides my husband! I took these shots (again in 2004) for him for the reason that he was doing the job out of town at the time and I named him and mentioned guess what I’m doing?? (pulling down tiles and obtaining it going!) So I snapped a several photos for him.
So, they are a mess. We had moved in not too long ago and stuff was just everywhere…and I was presently tired of searching at that dated rest room and loose tiles ready to slide from the wall.
And then this is how it went after that…
Not negative at all!
- We in fact pulled up the outdated blue tile and laid this super tedious (and neutral-our wondering at the time) builder-quality sort of ceramic flooring. haha
- For the cabinet, we merely manufactured new doors and I painted the whole point.
- The countertop is a single of these laminate ready-mades you can purchase off the shelf at Lowe’s or The Dwelling Depot.
- The sinks were like $20 bucks every and we reused the taps that had been in this article.
- We place up beadboard where by the blue tiles experienced been.
- New light fixture (this is truly the most recent one particular, we had a former “new” one for years before this just one)
- New mirror.
Really not undesirable at all but the cupboard was definitely demonstrating age and needed to go.
I was also very tired of the laminate countertop and sink problem. And the bathtub and surround desired consideration.
It was just time.
Even so, I genuinely, definitely did not want to pull up all that tile or pull out the tub.
And we experienced deemed changing the beadboard with shiplap as we did in the downstairs guest half bath that we had also earlier included beadboard to on an before makeover.
You can see this complete makeover, here.
So we did not do either.
I just gave the beadboard a refreshing coat of paint and very well we did the exact matter with the tub. We subbed that reglazing out to a expert while due to the fact we required it to very last.
It appears to be like wonderful!
Are you all set to see the expose now?
Now, if you bear in mind, I experienced a distinctive vainness cupboard picked out. I ordered it and months afterwards was told it would not be available. So we had to switch gears. And by switching to a blue cabinet we had to seriously change gears on the whole design.
But I’m thrilled with the improve!
As a refresher, below is what I at first had prepared.
Related (exact same ground type) but with tweaks everywhere you go else.
By the way, I’ll have a full record of sources for everything at the bottom of this write-up.
Exact same lighting…we changed it a couple several years in the past.
Observed this very print at The Cotton Gin in the Outer Banks very last weekend.
And if you follow alongside with me about on Instagram, you may possibly don’t forget me talking about this rug.
Pleasant rug but not at all the look I was soon after at the time I received it in there.
It is difficult to locate a 2×60-inch rug. Incredibly challenging!
But I went looking on the net all over again and discovered this one…
Yes, of course, of course, this is the glimpse!! I absolutely really like this quite rug.
Goes completely. Just seem at these colors…
I love the coloration of this tub cupboard much too. It’s this sort of a luscious shade! Blues are my favorite anyway so it is a definite gain.
The open up shelf on the base of the cupboard is wonderful for storing visitor towels, hand cloths, washcloths, and additional bathroom paper so they really do not have to go searching for people products.
Owning all drawers is a additionally too. I often choose drawers around cupboards any day.
This distinct bathtub vainness came with gold AND brushed nickel hardware. I selected to use gold. (but it’s wonderful to have the brushed nickel for other projects down the highway!)
I did, however, select brushed nickel for the faucets to go with the light-weight fixture and towel racks in in this article.
I really like to mix metals, retains it fascinating.
The mirror in gold… (I actually purchased the silver color but hated it so painted it gold)
It is the very same mirror we used in our downstairs bathtub refresh…
I uncovered these at Residence Merchandise.
And created and printed out some labels on apparent label paper for them.
Almost everything is guest-completely ready!

I tiled our most important rest room shower and figured what the heck, let us do this all over again.

We had earlier put in a prefab wall encompass. It experienced gotten yellowed and dingy searching more than the several years, and all over again, it was a brief spending budget-helpful deal with like the relaxation of that first transform so several yrs back.
We did not want to hold it so took it down and tiled it in its place. SO incredibly happy we did.
And the tub appears incredible reglazed. Like brand new!
New faucets, etc.

Enjoy how it all turned out. Light and vibrant and airy.
And examine out the new shower curtain I uncovered for in here…
See the star pattern that aligns with the star sample on the flooring?? Enjoy that.
I observed this indicator at At Dwelling, I imagined it’d be the excellent addition suitable there.
(it had a dark brown frame that just was not suitable … so I whitewashed it to give it a gray-ish search rather)
Up significant and nearly the 1st issue you see just about every early morning when you go in to get ready for the day. Great!
But how about all those pretty star tiles???
I signify, how fairly does this search? Can you believe these are the similar monotonous tan tiles painted??
