We are about to embark on our first major home renovation. We have done numerous small projects but this will be our first complete room gut.  Everything is coming out of our master bathroom and all new stuff is going in! 

 ~ Here’s the coocoo Master Bathroom ~

In case you’ve really been missing 1992! Welcome back. 

You’ll feel right at home here.

The Double Vanity and BIG, broken Bathtub.

Hello Shower!!!  Did you notice the gold? 
Bet you’re envious of my glass door/shower curtain combo?
What about my lamb/rooster/sheep wallpaper?

Crack.  It happens. 
It’s been happening in my bathroom for months.

More of the glass door/shower curtain combo.
Check these Babies Out!!! 

 Give me some of those maroon metal blinds!

The toilet paper holder has been broken for months. 
Why do I continue to keep the broken part there?

Can you say peeling wallpaper EVERYWHERE!

Look at this trim. Classy, right?!?!
Really, there are no words. 

Notice the blue cord (you can’t miss it).  What’s this cord for? 
We don’t know!?!?  Should we cut it?
Again, no words.

We’re so coocoo we like to have all finishes represented in our bathroom (brass, bronze, or silver).

I was tempted to clean up but…
 this is what our counter top looks like 90% 98% of the time.

My attempt to make the bathroom pretty.

Now we need your help!

Have you renovated your bathroom?
Or done another major home renovation project before?

What advice do you have so we don’t go completely coocoo?

Thanks so much for getting emails from mommy is coocoo. You ROCK!

    I redid my master bath in December. (I had a brown bath tub and a white toilet and tan sinks so don’t feel bad!)

    It was way more dusty than I had anticipated and my master bedroom was off limits the whole time.

    It also took three times longer than the contractors had estimated.

    Other than that, it was quite painless as they did all of the work and the results are spectacular. I was on a budget so I really shopped around. I actually got the cabinets at IKEA (THEY ARE FAB!)

    The only thing that really stressed me out was picking out the tile. It all looked the same to me and the tile seemed like such a big decision. My husband and I had a huge blow out in home depot over the tile!

    The ends justified the means as my bathroom is now the best room in the whole house!

    Good luck

    Oh- God bless you, honey! I have rehabbed 14 houses- most top to bottom. Take a deep breath and plunge in. Figure that it will take you twice as long as you think and that you will be at least 20-30% over what you plan on spending. Set your other bathroom up so that you are not all driving each other crazy during the remodel.

    Pick your biggest item first (probably your tile?) and go from there…then you can blend things in and not have to work a whole room around a light fixture (as an example). Try to NOT have to move plumbing- That is the biggest money saving tip I can give you. We put two vanities in and because MyHero is tall his vanity is about 6″ higher than my own. (However, they are not side by side) If you start running short budget wise pick cheaper faucets, etc, because that is something that is easier to replace in a few years. Deep breath…deep breath…GO!

    my suggestion is to stock up on wine (maybe several cases), and erase or burn all known pictures of that wallpaper, Kathy, Petticoat Junktion

    You have your hand full. My husband and I have been there and done that. I can tell you this, start with one thing first and when you are done with it go on to the next. It can be overwhelming doing everything at once. You have a great space on the bright side. : )

    Wow! Now that I’ve seen the before it makes the after even better! Glad you didn’t try to save the wallpaper – lol!
