Today, the countertop and sink are being installed in my bathroom remodel. I’m so excited to see the finishing pieces come together. I’ve spent the last two days prepping walls, priming drywall and painting the trim, ceilings and walls. We’re in the home stretch now and I can’t wait to share photos with you when it’s complete!
Paint the RV Cabinets- Paint is cheap and the right colors can make the space look bigger. Cabinets in a cramped space will be subject to high wear and tear so it was important to do this somewhat risky task right. But coming from a vintage travel trailer with real wood paneling to this poor imitation added further insult to injury… this will make a huge impact in stearing the van away from its eighties slump.
No problem at all. Provided, of course, all the required pieces are in the carton. It probably … Read More

Back around to curbside. The louvered windows all work, and the storage cabinet holds the vintage leveling jacks that came with her.

That blasted vanity was so wedged in there! Like most old homes the walls were not completely straight so some of the drywall ended up walking off with that old vanity. Patch job straight ahead! You make an excellent point. I too love the wine racks. My old house I put in glass holders to break up the … Read More

I have always wanted to use an old vanity in my bathroom. Actually, it’s a dry sink, but it would be just right for our downstairs half bath. Seeing your beautifully done transformation makes me want this to happen even more! Trouble is, my husband is neither handy, nor interested. Guess I’ll have to learn how to do it myself! You won’t be able to submit it as an answer to the question, but it can still totally count! Just share a link to it in this thread! It’s totally not against the rules to do so. Lowe’s offers a variety of bathroom … Read More
I’m starting big with the most complicated, most expensive, most functionally significant portion of the remodel – replacing the shower faucet. As I mentioned in a previous post , the tub/shower handles have been a real pain for some time. They are hard to turn, and it’s difficult to make small adjustments so that the water isn’t too cold or too hot (and that’s when the cold water isn’t turning itself off). I have previously replaced the faucet stems, but it was only a temporary fix because they wore out after a couple of years. The long-term solution is to replace the valve inside the wall. For that, I need a plumber… and that’s why this will be the most expensive portion of the remodel.

Hellooo friends. After seven months of hard work, a few DIY projects, lots of design work and hours and hours of tiling, we’re finally done with the Master Bathroom and here to show off the final photos and sourcing details.
Many tubs and showers have ceramic tile on the walls. If so a special drill bit must be used to drill the mounting holes for your new panel as a regular bit will at best do nothing and will more likely crack the tile and ruin it. Just slip them on and slide into all those small spaces that mops can’t go! Perfect if you only have a small area that needs to be cleaned. They are available for men or women and feature various colors.

We have showers! Well, kind of. They’re not functioning yet but they’re getting close. Let’s start with the Master bathroom shower. It looks HUGE but the actual usable/splashable space makes up about 2/3’s of the below green area.
Such a helpful hub here RedElf! I enjoyed the marvelous photos. (I love shopping…uh…make that looking). Your hub has afforded me several ideas for my own tiny bathroom. Problem is – I rent. So I’m somewhat limited. New Faucets- This is especially important if your bathroom has contractor grade faucets. New, higher quality faucets will be remembered by buyers. In my bathroom remodel I used an oil-rubbed bronze faucet that I purchased online very inexpensively. Heating a quick meal in the microwave is certainly convenient, but doing this may not lead to the most serene state of mind.
Homeowners should also be aware of the possibility of room expansion. If you do … Read More
With today’s bathroom remodeling designs, it’s never been easier to bring form, function and style together in your Long Island, NY, home. A bathroom remodel is more than just picking the right sinks, bathtub, cabinetry, and fixtures. You want a bathroom contractor who can re-imagine the layout of the bathroom and who can utilize the space to its fullest potential.
Probably people most often replace their showerheads because the existing showerhead doesn’t seem to work right, and the main symptom is likely to be lack of water pressure—and hence water flow—from the showerhead. This problem is usually caused by gradual clogging by hard water deposits. One of my bathrooms is tiny, so I can definitely use some help on utilizing the space I have. Thanks for sharing. Voted up!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term DIY, it is actually an acronym for Do It Yourself…and this tiny acronym has taken the country by storm!
Paying someone else to design and do the work was beyond the budget we set for ourselves. I found many different kits online that were more affordable. As we evaluated them however, we saw numerous things that made us fearful we could botch the job up nicely, although anyone who has done a bit of DIY work competently in the past could probably handle it. I’ll include some of the things I found below.
Buying a new toilet might not be exciting, but it is necessary during many bathroom remodels. The major expense here, as you might guess, will be the price of the toilet itself. If you can deliver the toilet to your home alone, then the installation cost will … Read More
