Kid’s Bathroom Progress

In the midst of school breaking for Summer, dance recitals, and family visiting, I have made progress on both the kids’ bathrooms. We’re out of the ugly part of the makeover and into the good stuff now. If you missed the post where I shared my vision for both the spaces, you can check that out here.

Izzy’s Bathroom Progress

Without a doubt my daughter was more concerned about how long it would take to get her bathroom back in working order than her little brother was about his. I waited to rip out her countertop and sink until the day before they were to install the new countertop and sink. Then, as things go, they couldn’t install her countertop because they got the measurements wrong. Luckily this was a them problem and not a me problem. It took another week get them back out here. But it worked out because the beadboard was able to go up and get painted before they came to do the install.

I am so thrilled with how the countertop and backsplash turned out! Izzy’s counter material is a quartz, Viatera Cirrus. This taller ledge backsplash is a style I have loved for a long time so I knew immediately it needed to happen in the kids’ bathrooms.

The moment the countertop installers left I started installing her faucet only to run into another problem. The plumbing under her sink also includes a drain line from our home’s air conditioner. When I switched from a one hole faucet to a spread three hole faucet, the water supply lines ended up smack next to where the AC’s drain line was. While I got everything installed, I just could not tighten the water supply line enough to not leak due to the tight fit. I had to call in a plumber which made my DIY soul die a little inside. Ugh… But, everything is now up and running.

Peek that wallpaper sample? It’s going to be incredible! You can see the blue ties in with the drapes in her room. And then there’s the new vanity light fixture. It makes me so happy!

Sam’s Bathroom Progress

While his is the smaller of the two bathrooms, it took me longer to get the wall panels up because I cut one large panel wrong. Nothing like messing up a cut! Especially since I paid $75 to have the panels shipped because we no longer have a truck. I didn’t want to spend another $75 just for one panel. It worked out though because after spending WAY too much time waiting on someone at Home Depot, I was finally able to have them but a panel down small enough to fit in one of our vehicles.

Right now my favorite new addition is the vanity light in Sam’s bathroom. It’s BEAUTIFUL!! And I love how his honed black granite counter turned out. You’ll see I did the same tall ledge backsplash in his bathroom like I did in Izzy’s.

I told you how the countertop fabricators messed up Izzy’s counter. Well, after Sam’s counter was installed they realized the opening for the sink was larger than the sink they had for it. So Sam too waited another week before they could come back out with a sink. I tell you this stuff because you should always expect hiccups or delays of some sort. Even when it’s a small, easy project.

What I’ve completed:

  • Removed old horizontal DIY shiplap boards and installed vertical shiplap panels
  • New baseboards
  • Painted new wall panels, trim, and doors
  • New countertop
  • New sink
  • New faucet
  • Installed mirror
  • Installed light

What’s Left:

  • Paint vanity
  • Add new vanity hardware
  • Get in wallpaper sample to decide on wallpaper
  • New shower curtain
  • New towel hooks and toilet paper holder
  • Art
  • Accessories

    In love with the new lighting in both baths. Great choices for the counter tops, they look so much better. And the change up on the paneling with each bath being different sets the design time. I’m excited to see Sam’s paper choice, since I’m over the top crazy about Izzy’s paper. Great job.
