Two Great, DIY, Small Bathroom Renovations

The cost of a bathroom makeover can be daunting, but there are ways to save. One smart strategy is to focus your renovation efforts on a smaller, more commonly used bathroom rather than an expansive master.

Items that are different in shape, height, color, texture or some other dimension should be balanced, but that almost always means they should not be centered and spread out or lined up evenly in a straight line. Not to worry, though: You can combat the claustrophobia by scaling down to physically save space. ( Pedestal sink , anyone?) And, with the right colors and lighting, you can create the illusion of a roomy bath. So, you’ve decided that a reface might be the ticket for your new kitchen…Well, then lets get started planning it!

In the adjacent office, we removed the wall board from the wall that backs on the bathroom, and found the center stud in the span of the wall. Then, with a reciprocating saw, we carefully removed the lathe and plaster from the bathroom wall, across the width of the center stud to the next stud on either side. Brett, Friends do indeed make everything better. Love the picture of your dogs on your profile. Dogs make good friends.

Since you are probably replacing existing handles, when you take those out have a close look at the screws and nuts to give a better idea of what to buy. You should be using the same diameter as the existing screws so that your handle won’t fit too loosely or too tightly. Excellent lens with lots of useful information. I have bookmarked it as we are currently working our way around the house decorating room by room. In Feng Shui, windows should not be placed over the stove because heat represents prosperity, and you don’t want your prosperity flowing out the window.

I admire you both so much for doing all that work and doing it so brilliantly too. I’m speaking as somebody who hates DIY and decorating. In fact, I don’t even like to be in the same building where it’s taking place in case I get roped in. Brilliant lens. Moonlake, I’m so envious that you purchased an old farm house. I’ve always wanted to, just never had the opportunity. I love DIY projects and repurposing furniture. I repurposed an old dresser in to an outdoor storage bench for planting. Such great ideas. Your bathroom turned out beautifully! I love your color choice and your ceiling is to die for, really pretty!
