Salutations! Many of my friends on Cottage Fix are no strangers to the excitement of a gut job renovation or maybe a cosmetic remodel. But for those of you who have yet to get your feet wet and are thinking about diving in head first, I thought you might like a little peek behind the scenes of our bath remodel. And for those of you that have been in the thick of it, please feel free to laugh along with me. Laughter is the best medicine some days for sure. It always amazes me how much work goes into it before anything really starts to take shape. Mr. Macho has been working so hard and we’ve had a few different contractors out (they’ve all been awesome!) and I’ve been doing a great job of not freaking out amidst all the chaos. That’s basically my job at the moment, no freaking out. Loads of painting awaits me, so I’m certainly enjoying my current position for now. Totally nailing it girls! Not freaking out one iota. Grin!
Not much decorating going on at the moment though. The bath remodel seems to be slowly taking over, much like ivy does in Spring. It’s just slowly creeping into every free corner of our little cottage. The bathroom radiator is making herself comfortable in the guest room along with some tools and supplies. There’s a cabinet and light fixtures in the living room and the garage is filled with little marble hex tiles. They’re so cute!
And then there’s the holes in the walls which I new were coming, but it always seems so sad when your putting a new hole in the wall. I just love these old plaster walls—I need a band aid ASAP. All will be fixed and forgotten in the end. At least that’s what they say, but I’m not so sure.
The super cool 1930s tub is staying and getting reglazed and fitted with new hardware after the drywall and tiles are in place. We went back and forth on this one. But they just don’t make ’em like they used to, now do they! The vintage sink is being reglazed now and I can’t wait to see it in place. This is the nitty gritty of our bathroom remodel so far, I’m hoping it will be much more fun to photograph in a month or so.
