Kitchen Diva Mom and Ranger Dad's Bathroom Remodel: Part 3 The Result!

We've come a looooong way with this project. What started out as a sad, unloved, cracked bathroom has become a calm, soothing, and relaxing space. Mom and Dad are thoroughly enjoying their new space. But before I can show you the results (I know, I know, I'm so mean) let's see where we came from so those last photos will truely sparkle.


Old. Grungy. Hospital Green.
Gold accents. Can we say circa 1978?

Cave of a shower.

My parents have never been ones to quickly get a project done. All my life we've lived with project zones through the house as it's transformed. Not to say they don't get done, they just don't get done until Mom's had enough of looking at the demo. Same with this remodel. Since Ranger Dad was doing a lot of the work himself, Mom had to put a cap on how long this particual project would take. Smart woman. The end date was Saturday, May 15th. The same day as my baby sister's graduation from Campbell University. The same day we are having a celebration at Mom and Dad's house for Annie's graduation.


So here she is. In all her glory. I consider this project to be Complete and on time! GO DAD!) No sleeping on the couch for this guy tonight :)

The amazing after:
**warning: Picture Overload**


 I still can't believe how much brighter it is. Take a look at the gorgeous travertine tile. I love to touch it, it feels like buttah.

 Because glass tile is so expensive to add as an entire shower, they chose to use an accent strip in the shower. Shows it off perfectly.


The kept the same vanity, but replaced the faucet and the top. Dad put in all the beadboard and molding himself.

New Towels as a Mothers Day gift.





Of course, a new potty. It's a low flow. Because they're environmentally conscience.

Isn't it gorgeous? I still can't believe it's the same bathroom.
What do you all think? Good job? Not so good?
