Guest Bathroom Remodel with Board and Battten

This project was actually completed last year, but I am late getting it posted. I had been asking for a board and batten bathroom, and then luckily Ana posted pictures of one, giving the handy hubby a better idea of what I was wanting.

The cabinets, built-in medicine cabinets, mirror frame, and toilet paper niche are all custom designed and built by the hubby. The counter top and sink were custom ordered through Home Depot to fit the space.

The bathroom didn't originally have a shower head, so after removing the 70s gold flecked tiles covering the walls up to chair rail height and repairing/replacing drywall we purchased shower walls and then he tiled around and above.

This was a major, months-long undertaking that included gutting the entire room, and then the building began. Everything in the room from the popcorn ceiling down to the yellow linoleum flooring save for the toilet and tub had to be replaced,the toilet we had bought since we moved in and the tub is metal and was in great condition.
