Hello. Thank you for stopping by and checking in on my weekly progress over here. I have to admit, I’m getting a little nervous now that we are on week 3. Eek! Half-way there and my bathroom is slowly being put back together. No where close to adding in the pretty stuff. The reason? Drywall! It is a slow and messy process!! I am officially over the mess!
You see, when I embarked on this “small” remodel, I decided that I would remove our closet doors and put in pocket doors. Something I have wanted to do for a long to time and figured now would be the time to do it, especially since I am putting planking on the walls. I am a huge fan of pocket doors and the amount of space that they open up in a room, especially in a small room, is amazing. We have already put in a few in our house and love them. It is messy but completely worth it in the end (I have to keep reminding myself of this).
The doors are in and where all of that drywall was removed it has now been replaced. We are in between letting the mud dry and sanding. Can’t wait for this step to be finished!!
The drywall has been replaced in the tub area. We are getting close to putting the wood floors in this area.
You may recall as you enter our bathroom, the first thing you see straight ahead of you is our shower……
Since we are not replacing the shower tile or door frame, I decided to have a custom shower curtain and valance made to conceal the not-so-pretty shower and to give you something pretty to look at as you enter instead of soap scum on the bottom of the shower door (I think they call that “keeping it real”). I am thinking of something like this….
Mine will not be split into two panels, just one and on the valance I am going to do a custom monogram in the same color thread as my band color, which is light blue. Similar to the one below.
Here are a few of the monograms that I’m leaning towards.
Do you have a favorite?
I hope to be onto more of the “pretty stuff” next week. Thanks for stopping by!!
