Prairie Cape Bathroom
So I got around to naming our new house….Prairie Cape…cause she’s on the prairie and she’s a cape cod style house. Super original, I know. Anyhoo, we are just wrapping up the big ticket items on our main floor bathroom remodel. Yahoo!!!!
look at that wallpaper! I tried to salvage a piece so that I could frame it, but it mysteriously disappeared.
First up – we replaced all of the windows inside the house (except the front 3, because they are HUGE and special order). Our first inclination was not to do a full gut, but once we pulled the rotten pieces of drywall out, we just kept going. I wanted to keep the retro vanity so badly, but it was damaged when we took it out. 🙁
The boards under the toilet and bathtub were not able to be salvaged so new boards were placed on that side of the bathroom.
A big decision for us was what type of material to use for our shower – we wanted to go full tile but quite frankly neither of us was interested in going full in on another bathroom right off the bat. It sounds terrible but after redoing 3 bathrooms in our last house….we.are.tired of bathrooms. lol. So we did a shower insert and for what we want right now, its perfect.
Itsn’t it pretty??!!
I reused the bathroom mirror which is slightly larger than the vanity, but I have decided to deal with it so that I can have something from the original bathroom in place.
There is still trim work, bathroom accessories and the whole moving in thing left to do – but other than that – We have a fully functional bathroom and I am sooooo happy.
