Guest Bath Remodel

Submitted by cuznlucky on Sat, 09/20/2014 - 03:03

So we had a pretty hideous bathroom (as seen in the last picture). The toilet was pink too, matching the tub and sink. This complete little bathroom remodel was an experiment to see if I wanted to tackle the master bath and eventually the kitchen. We had a drywall guy come in to fill the holes where the original towel bar, toilet paper holder and medicine cabint were. I actually used the plans from the Kitchen Cabinet Sink Base 36 Full Overlay Face Frame because I wanted a toe kick and a Face Frame. I added my own twists like a hidden toilet paper holder on the right, 45 degree tilt out in the middle, and a sliding shelf in the left drawer. I adjusted the dimensions for the space we had and used a soft close track and hinges. We went with a granite top due to the money we saved on building the vanity. We went with brushed fixtures and accessories like a hotel style towel holder. I want to give credit to my girlfriend and her Mom who did most of the demo work (not really sure why and that's her Mom in the last picture). My girlfriend's step father and I laid the tile (I have never laid tile before) and my girlfriend did all the decorating / finalizing to make it look complete and totally awesome.

Estimated Cost
Total bathroom under $2000, but we went with a more expensive granite top, nicer tile that extends through the hallway, tub resurfacing and paid a person for drywall work.
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Plywood
Finish Used
Black Paint
Required Skill Level
Intermediate

Nice job customizing the plan. I'm attempting something similar -- modifying the kitchen sink cabinet to fit our vanity top, and adding drawers.

I love your finished vanity with all the little extras. Wish your plan was available! I'm not confident enough to do that much customizing yet. Great work!
