where we started and what prompted the reno here. Not a whole lot has changed from the inspiration board, but I am pondering tweaking one or two things.
As you can see, we have a subfloor now, and the walls have been made smooth. We are ready to paint hopefully soon.We built this small platform so our barber shop sink will have something to sit on to give it a little more height. My husband had this idea, and I think it is so smart. (have I mentioned lately what a great design partner he is?) He wanted the sink to feel like part of the main bathroom, and I think this platform is just the unity these two spaces needed. The sink will be perpendicular to the main floor, so one will step down and turn to use the sink.
I am very passionate about saving as much as we can of the original bathroom, so the old trim was carefully taken off and put back. We replaced wood only as needed. You can see where the old and new blends in this photo. Of course, when it is painted, you will never know. As happy as I am to see this room opened up (I seriously cannot believe how much lighter it feels), I am most excited about the shower transformation. It is fully tiled and grouted, and it looks fabulous.
