hall bathroom progress.

Last time we talked the hall bath, we were re-painting the color to Benjamin Moore's Stonington Gray (color matched at Lowe's to their no VOC Olympic paint), and updating the light (with a slight hiccup). And we never provided progress shots. Because I'm pretty bad with that : )

As a reminder, here is what we started with.

Then with the few updates, we were left with this:

Looking good right? I loved the color, and loved the mirror + light + paint combo.

But, the other week we went from good, to destroyed.

Yep, that's right. We have moved on to bathroom reno #2. When we bought our house, we assumed our second bathtub had a shower. Because, let's face it, they all do. Well our house was an exception- and it was a fun little surprise we found after the fact. So tip for all of you house hunters- when you open the curtain, look UP!

We were going to put the job off for awhile since the second shower wasn't 100% necessary at the moment. For the few overnight guests that we get, they can certainly use our master bath shower. But, we had a plumbing + loose toilet seal mishap that lead us to pull up the nasty linoleum tile flooring. So we decided since we were going to re-tile the floor, we might as well knock out the shower as well. We are going to do all the tile ourselves, and hire a plumber to extend the pipe. We don't mess with plumbing. Nor electricity. Yikes.

The bathroom tub area is almost all the way gutted. And who knows when we will finish this job. We don't have a deadline, and choose to work on it when our allergies are too bad to be outside.

So stay tuned. But in the mean time, here is our plan! For the flooring we are going to use the same neutral tile we have in our bathroom. Then for the shower, we are going to use white subway tile. I l-o-v-e white subway tile, so I cannot wait for this to be completed!  I still need to decide if we are going to use a white grout, or a gray color. Good thing is, I have some time to make that decision.



We'll keep you posted on the updates, but I imagine this will be "in progress" for some time!
