We hung our Ikea Godmorgon vanity on the wall. You can use legs but we chose to hang it as if it were floating. Yes, the blue plastic looks wonderful doesn't it? It's a bugger to get off and I don't mind leaving it there until everything is finished.
I had not seen our pretty floor since the tiling was finished. We had covered it in cardboard for the remainder of the renovation and I was pretty excited to pull that up! The in-floor heat is wonderful on the toes.
Our tiler put a recessed box in the shower for our bottles. We are also tiling all around the window and putting in marble sill so he came to do the prep work for that as well.
Having a window in the shower is never ideal. We are taking the extra precautions here and there and one includes this bright red water sealant. Imagine my surprise when I walked into the room after that went up. Thank goodness it's going to be covered up!
I contemplated a bunch of different white paints for the bathroom. Most of them were a really light grey (BM's winter white, intense white) but when the day came to choose, I ended up choosing a bright white: Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace. It's my favorite trim paint and I figured why not use it on the walls too. I'll admit that it feel a bit institutional in there right now and there is more white to come (tile) but I really like how fresh it feels. I think there will be a good enough mix of textures to keep it from feeling cold.
Still to do:
- hook up plumbing in the sink so we can actually use it
- Install our proper shower fixtures
- shower curtain and rod
The #ugliestbathroomreno could also be called #neverendingbathroomreno. It certainly feels that way!
