busy around the house, part 1: bathroom fix-up

My hubby & I have been working on our house. I’ve been having friends over more and we thought it time to finish the main bathroom.

It was very pink when we moved in 3 years ago.  We pulled out the sink, cabinets and flooring almost immediately. We would have taken out the tub too, but that was too big of a project for us, especially since we needed it for the kiddos.

Sadly, we put up a make-shift bathroom soon after-functional but not pretty.  Almost 3 years later, we finally finished it up, thanks to IKEA.   We still have a pink tub, but are looking into glazing it so that we don’t have to remove it.

I decorated it with beach photographs from our vacation last year. They fit perfectly. There’s also the”keep calm” poster in blue on the other side.  It feels a little more masculine, but that’s okay because I have my own pretty little bathroom that I’ll show you on another day.

    such a beautiful reno! worth all the blood sweat, dust and tears. A friend of mine had her tub coated in like a fibreglass paint and it was very successful.

    That honestly looks like it should be in a home decor magazine. Have you thought about sending it into Apartment Therapy? I never would have guessed those colors (pale yellow and black) would blend so perfectly!

    The sink is particularly great too. Excellent work 🙂

    Your bathroom makeover is so lovely, I might steal some of your ideas. As far as your tub goes, I would not recommend reglazing it. We reglazed a shower and the finish, even with babying, didn’t hold up with daily use. For the tub in the other bathroom, we decided to go with a custom acrylic liner. It’s a little pricey but not as much as trying to replace the entire tub, and I’ve been very satisfied with it.

    Lovely transformation!
    a bit of caution about the re-finishing of the tub, it only lasts about 5 years and then it starts to chip >.< I had my tub re-finished 5 years ago from pink to black. Maybe consider a tub-fitter?
