Upstair Guest Bathroom Reveal

Thursday, October 10, 2013

First let me just say, that today is my 1000th post! That's a lot of writing, y'all! And I'm happy most of you have been with me through it all.

The remodel, well, it's almost over. We still have a few things like touching up some paint, changing out a light fixture, oh and making sure the faucet doesn't leak — but we are almost finished with this DIY project!

It all started on a Thursday night while I was out of town when the Mr and my mom started tearing out the bathroom the first week of September.

That Saturday after the big tear out, the Mr was making sure all the plumbing was unhooked and turned off, and the shut off valve turned itself back on flooding the bathroom. Only problem was he was the only one here so he had to fix it and clean it up all by himself. (I wish I could have gotten him to tell y'all this story, because it would have you rolling. And he said he may or may not have been letting a few cuss words fly. Ha!)

Next up was laying the tile. Mom and the Mr actually did all of this in 2 1/2 hours on a Wednesday night.

That weekend, the Mr got the grout and the trim up so we could get on with the program.

This week, we were happy to get our toilet and granite installed. He even took care of changing out one of the lights.

Last night, it was time to hook up the new faucet and get the bathroom fully functional again. I was enlisted to help with some of the work. Mainly holding things in place, etc. Well, I'm not the best assistant. Let's just say that we had to do and redo the cold handle three of four times because the lock position was where it needed to be. To my defense, I had no way of knowing where the lock position was — until he finally showed me the next to last time. He still has a little bit of tweaking to do with the plumbing because it wants to leak a drop or two of water when it drains. But, considering he didn't major in plumbing (and we all know I didn't) I think this bathroom is perfect because it was all a labor of love.
