Hey guys! If you follow me on Facebook you know that hubby and I have been hard at work renovating out basement mostly by ourselves (we’ve hired out for the flooring). Progress has been slow, but we’re finally making some headway and I thought I would take some time to share with you my main project, our guest bathroom.

Aside from being very outdated and all white “blah”, it’s a nice size and still very functional. We opted not to go all out and demo it (for now anyway) and instead chose to update it on a budget because we are trying very hard not to finance anything in the basement remodel.

Today let’s take a look at some “before” pictures and later this week I’ll update you with pictures of the progress I’ve made so far.

The “business end” of the bathroom if you will. You can see it’s been a little lived in. When hubby had norovirus, I stayed in the basement so I wouldn’t catch it too. I didn’t bother to clean up before the photos…just keepin’ it real. 😉 Also, that toilet had a clear resin butterfly toilet seat on it when we moved in. So classy.

GIGANTIC medicine cabinet left by the former owner. It served it’s purpose as a towel bar but not much else.  Oh and those white basins below are my scarves being hand washed. Sorry about that.


Ah my (least) favorite part. The wall behind the toilet and above the sink is pretty much all mirror. It goes from one side of the room to the other. So if you’re a guy…and you need to use my guest bath…you’re going to have an awkward time of it. I’m still working out a solution for that. We’ll see how it goes.

Luckily this is the last time you’ll see the bathroom looking like this. I can’t wait to show you my progress!
