Progress on the Bathroom

This week we have really worked hard to get this bathroom into the homestretch.

As I told you last week, this is the main bathroom in our home and the one that McG and our son share.

We knocked the following projects off our to-do list this week...

1.  sanded and re-stained/varnished the door and added new hardware - we used a satin varnish instead of the high-gloss that was on them previously

2.  Painted the walls a soft grey called "just chillin'" by Beauti-tone from Home Hardware.  It was a kitchen and bath paint in a velvet finish. We also painted the ceiling and trim a fresh coat of white.

3.  We installed a new counter-top but kept the same sink.  We also added new faucets.

4.  McG installed the new light that we purchased at IKEA - the VIPPARP

 5.  Next McG mounted the new wall hooks I purchased from Home Sense, along with the new toilet   paper holder and towel rack.  He made mounting blocks for the toilet paper holder and towel rack and stained them to match new cabinet color.

6.  He re-attached the cabinet doors and hardware, while I added the new shower rod and curtain. We also added a smaller mirror that we purchased at Home Sense.

Next up we are replacing the flooring and adding new baseboards - then we can mark this room off the to-do list!

Here's a look at the room so far...

I'm loving the transformation so far and can't wait to show you it fully finished with the new flooring and trim!
