Bathroom Reno - Before Pics and Plans

Who is ready to see another transition in our house? I know everyone is waiting for the nursery reveal, and in due time, but for now, lets take a look back at the bathroom and how far its come:
Here is how it looked before we moved in:

Still don't miss that green!!
And then after we moved in:

Knowing it would be a full on gut job, we just touched up the paint and d├ęcor - easy fix. You can check out this POST talking about what all went down at that point.

And this is what it looked like last month:

Essentially the same - I just like to change the shower curtain up every now and then!

And today it is looking on the rather rough side:

Check out that border!! It actually matches the current wall color!!

Those side panels are coming down too, but M needs to remove the pot lights first, as it is all connected!

Oh and yes, that is mold!! Seeing this makes me soo happy to be replacing it all! That dry wall will be replaced. We have a professional tiler coming in to do the bathtub surround!!

Won't miss that tub, those floors, the cracked sink, the mold, the leaks, etc.

The plans?

Well we have a new tub going in, since that one leaks, new double sink vanity, I am thinking this one from Costco:
Carolina 60-in. Double Vanity  Vanity - check
But we need to inquire about how the plumbing part works. Not sure if it will work.

Flooring and tile:

We are going with barn board floors, very rustic feeling and the tile is actually a little more taupe than this picture shows.

So basically we want a rustic, bright, spa like feel for in there. I have not even started with paint colors, aside from grabbing a bunch of chips!

We will have 2 stages for the reno, with the initial one going down now, with new tub, vanity, floors, paint, fan installation and tile and lighting. Stage 2 will be a new bathroom door, and floor to ceiling cabinets on the wall, pictured above with the dresser, for storage, as we don't have a true linen closet.

Oh and this is all to be done before Baby V arrives! Well Stage 1 is, stage 2 can wait. M is starting to feel the pressure now, especially when the doctor told us the baby could come anytime now.

We are down to one bathroom right now and M is learning that sharing the bathroom with a pregnant woman is no fun! No more hour long book readings... I still don't even know how that is comfortable...

Wish us luck!!

It must look way worse in person before because it actually doesn't look at that bad!! Although when you mentioned leaking tubs and cracked sinks I can see why it needed a reno.

I can't wait to see what it will look like. I LOVE that vanity and I hope the plumbing works for you.

I liked it before you guys did the latest renovation - I'm sure it'll look great when you're finished! We tore out a wall in our house to remodel our laundry "room" (closet?) and found black mold. 95% of the walls in the house are cinder block, but this one just happened to be drywall. So scary what you don't realize you could be living with!
