Bathroom Renovation Update

Jimmy and I worked a little more on our bathroom renovation on Labor Day. We sanded the walls, chipped paint, and were finally able to put the first coat of paint on the walls and ceiling!



We had a fun Labor Day working together on our little home improvement. As much as we would have liked to take the day off and go to a cookout, we were both glad to make progress on the bathroom.

It’s really starting to come together, too! All that’s left is some touch up work, a possible second coat of paint, and installing a few fixtures.

To remember our day together, I filmed a vlog! I’ve been having way to much filming vlogs lately, haha.

Do you like to paint?

How’s the bathroom renovation going?

We are continuing to make progress on the bathroom renovation!

Jimmy and his dad finished putting the tile on the walls and installed the new vanity top. Since we had to custom order it (due to the dimensions of our bathroom), it took about a month to come in. We were nervous to see how it would look since we only saw a small sample of the marble in the store. Thankfully, we love it!

Choosing a paint color was tough! Jimmy had originally wanted to go with a light blue, but the walls we already light blue when we moved in, so we were kind of over it. He totally surprised me when he suggested purple, so we made a trip to Lowe’s to check out paint samples.

I put a few paint samples on the walls, and we settled on gothic amethyst by Olympic. Not too purple-y for a bathroom, I think. I’m really excited to see what the walls will look like when we’re done.

Gothic Amethyst

Since we picked a color theme and I had some birthday gift cards, I bought a few new towels, wall art, a shower curtain, and made a DIY decoration. All that’s left is painting the walls and installing fixtures like a towel rack, toilet paper holder, vent, and a new fan. Slowly but surely, we’re getting there!

Edited to add: right after I posted this, I totally noticed I spelled “household” wrong in the graphic at the top of this post, ha! Sorry 🙂
