Bathroom Reveal

It all started when I found this vanity.  I thought I'd use it to do this... 

Simple remodel. Remove the double vanity... replace with single.. gain space

Yea right~!

Ended up ripping out EVERYTHING, replacing joists (all of them), all subfloor, new vinyl, new walls, etc..

It was tricky because we couldn't remove the clawfoot tub down the 24" hallway.  So we had to rip out half the floor, replace everything.. then move the clawfoot to the "new" side and replace the other side. 

Some process.
In moving the clawfoot around, I realized it would work  much better on the "vanity" wall. So I rearranged the  plumbing to accomidate.
So... without further ado...

I made the door myself out of the old door. I cut a hole in the middle, frosted plexiglass... put moulding around and added custom vinyl decal. And now it's a pocket door.  (I'll post a "How To" later)

The sink got moved to the tub pluumbing area.  So much more spacious!

The large mirror right as you walk in is the old vanity mirror that was horizontal.  I glued it onto some hardboard, let it sit for 72 hours.  Then I screwed the exposed hardboard into studs then trimmed out the rest.   The tub still needs a D shape clawfoot rod and curtains, 

and a glass shelf over the toilet.  

But it's been 7 weeks and my husband is done having a construction zone.

Your after pics are lovely. You and your hubby did a great job. I love all the trim and the way you used the old mirror. Very clever.
My absolute favorite thing is the door. Loving the frosted glass and the the vinyl water closet on their. Very cool.

I am seriously in LOVE with this space! So perfectly done. I too always seem to think projects are going to be so much easier than they end up being. The hard work pays off though. Beautiful bathroom. Love the colors!

I really like this, might I suggest something for towels on the blank spot near the light switch. Also I think with the flowery script on the door, the room needs some texture, cant wait to see the curtain you choose!
