our bathroom so far


It's been a while since I posted anything about our bathroom remodel. (Blame it on the babe ;) Our contractor actually finished the week before Christmas and we are about 90% there with everything else. We still need to get the sink plumbed and add some decorations but other than that, this space is pretty much done!
Our favorite feature by far is the walk in shower with a rain shower head. It was definitely a pricier option, but every time Nick or I take a shower, we comment on how worth it the extra cost was. 
For the vanity area, Nick and I picked out a piece of walnut from our favorite local wood company and Nick meticulously epoxied the holes and  sanded it and then installed it. It is exactly what I envisioned when we started this bathroom remodel. The sink on top is a large trough sink with two faucets and it will be great once we get it working!
Right now the room is very neutral with grey tiles on the floor, a white shower and white walls. We plan to add a colorful rug and some art to dress it up a little.
One other project that we are going to be tackling is the linen cupboard. When I painted our first vanity grey, I painted this cupboard grey as well to match. I didn't sand first so the grey hasn't held up well. Nick is planning to remove the doors and build a wood frame and wood doors that we'll stain to match the vanity. He also wants to add some better organization.  We gave up a lot of storage space by choosing an open vanity so we need to maximize this area to give us better storage. 
We are excited to finish up this bathroom, but even as is, it's a million times better than where we started. We can't say enough good things about the company we worked with (LaBrie Construction for anyone local and looking!)
