the Bathroom Renovation - part 3

We're still deep into the bathroom renovation.  The guy doing our tile finally finished the other day and that was exciting.  He didn't come on a normal schedule, so it took a long time and it kind of felt like he was living with us for a couple of months.  He did great work, though, so we're happy.

Here's the shower.  It needs a door still.  The wall to the left separates the tub and the shower and it's the same height as the board and batten that will go around the room.

Here's the tub.

I am really happy with our tile choice.  I love it.  Here's the wall color for above the board and batten.  It's like a pale-limey-yellow.  It's called "Summer Resort" by Behr.

The previous owners painted stripes, so there's a lot of sanding to do because you can feel the edge of the paint on all the stripes.  It'll just take some fine sand paper and a lot of elbow grease.

I'll paint the vanity cupboards a medium gray.  We removed the countertops.  They didn't match the new tile and my husband has a great contact in the granite business, so hopefully it won't cost much.

Here's the beginning of the board and batten, where the toilet goes.  It will have a little ledge on top and it'll all be white, though I've been thinking a pale gray could be so pretty.  Hmmm...

It'll still probably be a couple of months until it's all totally done, but the toilet will go back in soon and that's what I've missed the most :)

Has every renovation you've done taken a whole lot longer than you thought it would?

Tomorrow I'm going to show you the first shoes I've ever sewed.  They are for the baby and they were actually really easy to make.  (If you follow me on instagram @mommaroars you got a sneak peak the other day.)  Thanks for stopping by.
