What should be our "main bathroom" -
It had pink C-A-R-P-E-T in it when we moved in, but that had to go. GROSS! Why carpet in a bathroom?
Tiles were falling off the handmade vanity. They did last 50 years, so its not like they were crummy.
They just didn't look vintage cool.
The pink tub, sink, and toilet were cool in their own vintage way but we need two sinks.
And the pink toilet has pieces broken off.
The gutted bathroom
This used to be called the "girls bathroom" or the "pink bathroom"
It needs a tub/shower, TWO sinks, and a private-ish toilet area
More than one person needs to be able to use it at the same time
The goal is for this to be the kids/mommy bathroom while they are little and once they get big I get my own master bathroom somewhere else.
My inspirations -
I don't have enough space for this - but it looks so amazing
The towel hook are perfect for the shorties.
Love the one sink with two faucets. But too big for this space. And doesn't it just look too expensive?
Or - how about this $200 sink from Ikea? The scale is right.
Now the vanity can't just be a regular old vanity. No way. We have too many chances to do something interesting.
Similar to this. (Why do I always want open storage? Why???? Don't I know it would be easier to close it off? I just visualize a rainbow of towels folded up so pretty. IN A KIDS BATHROOM?
But I got to have it.
My Dad is a wood worker and he takes custom orders from his adorable daughter :)
This image is not one of his, but his would be even more amazing
And this wall art is WONDERFUL! It makes me excited about this process. I have seen things like this on Etsy, so I know find something like it. I love the midcentury modern feel of it.
I think it will help keep the bathroom in the right era of the house.
(fancy talk, what a fake I am)
For flooring I am thinking 6inch by 12 inch slate tiles. Josh is not going to like this idea, so maybe I should just consider 12/12 slate tiles.
For walls I want classic white subway tiles with a lip at the top that is deep enough to set picture frames on. I might consider wainscoting for this.
(Here is my I am guessing, but I really have no idea budget)
Budget - $2,500
New sub floor $100
New flooring $250
New tub/shower $500
New lighting $200
New vanity $free?
New faucets $200
New drywall/wall treatments/paint $200
I want to see how this budget compares to the actual budget I come up when I really do my homework at the supply stores.
