Bathroom Redo #1

Yay!! We finally have one bathroom completely done!! Thank goodness, because I feel like we have 700 projects that aren't finished. The weather this weekend in Michigan totally messed up my plans.  

So here are the before pics. The color was like a burnt orange. I didn't mind the color so much but our bathroom is pretty small and it made it feel very cave-ish.  


Here you can see why you shouldn't put wood floors in a bathroom. When we bought the house I liked how it looked, but never considered what happens when you mix water and wood. The result is that the boards get spaces between them and the finish peels off. When that happens you get mold. Gross!!


Okay now here is the new and improved space:




Ignore the paint that I need to peel off the mirror here :)


And finally the new floors minus the mold:




Well there you have it!  Now we need to finish the other one.... More pics to come.

Have a great day!!
