Sycamore Bathroom Renovations: Phase 1

We are in the first phase of renovating one of the bathrooms, the Sycamore Bathroom – this includes replacing all the old wallpaper and paneling, the linoleum floor, and the cabinet, sink, and lighting. Here’s a before picture:

After taking out the bathtub, cabinet, etc. Josh began removing the paneling plus the two layers of wallpaper. Lots of hard work and scrubbing to remove all that glue!

He also removed the back wall to rework the plumbing and electrical – we are adapting the claw-foot tub into a shower, and it’ll have a spa-inspired waterfall shower-head mounted from the ceiling and a pretty curtain circling the tub. To prepare for laying the floor tiles, Josh installed backer board.

I feel like it looks great already – you can see the wonderful potential! For the next phase, Josh will install new drywall and begin adding new flooring and wall tile. Just imagine: light grey marble flooring, white subway tile on the walls, claw-foot tub shower, a pretty pedestal sink (and maybe an aromatic rosemary plant). Stay tuned for updates.
