How To Install A New Showerhead

This past weekend, we did a quick remodel of our bathroom. My spouse repainted the walls, doors, and trim. He replaced the baseboard and the vanity, because water took a toll on our only bathroom, and the laminate started to come off the vanity. We have new baseboard that is a type of vinyl, but it looks like wood now that it is painted and caulked. My spouse is so handy from fixing everything around here that he works fast. The vanity and sink that we removed was donated to Stardust: Goodwill’s version of a ReStore. The sink was in great condition.

Complete Bathroom Renovation

This is the first in a short series of videos showing how to remodel a bathroom. This video shows how to remove everything from the bathroom (excluding the tub), to get ready for new flooring. Subsequent videos show how to install vinyl tiles with grout and how to install beadboard and a new faucet.

The main reason we began the remodel was to get rid of the carpet and lay down tile. Secretly I dreamed of new tile around the sinks (especially the part right under the mirror), new cupboards, new faucets and a new light fixture.

Again, the tile countertop. And that same great floor pattern. After reading your hub, Bathroom Remodels: Bathroom Sinks … Read More
