Bathroom Makeover: Before & After

Our last big undertaking in our house was the main bathroom. We knew there was going to be a lot involved in updating and transforming it, so we put it off to the end. Kelly again is such a trooper taking this on. He completely stripped down the room by removing drywall, ripping up the tile to the sub floor, and removing the handicap shower stall. And then, we knew there was no turning back. After many hours spent watching youtube videos about how to do this and that and talking with the people at Home Depot and Lowe's who probably knew Kelly by name at the end of all this, he finally finished. It took from January to May but WE'RE FINISHED! So, to put this room back together again; Kelly installed a bathtub (because he loves his baths), tiled the walls around the tub, tiled the floor, tiled the countertops, installed new drywall on the walls and the ceiling, painted, put up new trim and installed all the hardware and I'm sure I'm leaving some things out. Again, I'm so proud and thankful he's such a hard worker and see's projects to their very end. Doing this ourselves saved us so much money.
