Since I’m laid up for awhile from foot surgery, (I talk about that a little here ) things have been a bit slow around here in terms of creativity. I was completely unprepared in every way to a) re-injure my foot, therefore leading to surgery and b) stay off of my feet for more than 12 weeks. As a result, I’m kinda seriously lacking in the project department. So I thought I’d share our guest bathroom remodel from a couple years back.
This is the guest bedroom, which now had a walk-in closet made from the two back-to-back, shallow closets. We replaced the doors, painted the room and the built-in bookshelves, and added a heating duct (out of view). Before, as part of what used to be a garage years before we bought the house, there was no direct heat to this room. This is great. There are not enough posts about decorating small and cramped bathrooms. Not all of us have bathrooms the size of football pitches! Thank you! Overall it was a fun project, and we were able to make some drastic changes with only a few thousand dollars and less than 2 weeks.
It is the perfect market to invest in good houses and with your skills, succeed. I agree, it really is lots of fun. And the freedom to be painting a wall while listing to tunes with the windows open, a nice breeze and a thermos full of good strong coffee. Ahhh. Makes me long for another fixer-upper. Well, maybe not. Thanks Simone! I am glad you enjoyed it. I am working on a few more, so hopefully if time allows, I can get them posted in the next day or two.
Sure you can, though you’ll probably void any warranty by doing so. Easiest to modify is a plain cabinet with shelves, as drawers are more difficult to modify. You’ll also need to watch out for changes in door sizes as, depending on the style of the door, this may end up looking very odd! I had to put a vintage wire trash basket and my Indian rock in the bathroom. The trash basket works great for extra toilet paper.
The room for the cabinet- makes a world of difference too. Looks like there is much more light coming in the window too.. I can’t wait to see the rest of it. You must get permits before tackling a bathroom remodel. Contact your building inspector to go over the scope of the project to find out exactly how much you’re permitted to do. When your permit is granted, you’ll receive a schedule list that’ll tell you when to call for inspections.
