Here’s the progress update for our master bathroom renovation week 3.
We are already halfway through our master bathroom renovation with Jeffrey Court. It’s already week 3 and so much has been completed. Yet, there is still so much to do! If you want to start from the beginning, you can read about this crazy fun renovation challenge we decided to participate in with 13 other DIY bloggers. You can find week 1 and week 2 progress updates on the blog. It’s also the first week you can go and vote!
Last week, I shared my design board. Well, I made a tweak and came up with a new board. The main change I made was the color of the cabinets. From the start, I kept going back and forth from periwinkle and a dark rich green. I finally decided on the green because I think the contrast with all the whites in the bathroom will really complement each other. Plus, I tend to always move towards a rich, moody color.
This past week, we bought all the materials to lay down the tile. Instead of the traditional mortar boards, we went with Schulter Ditra which is a waterproofing layer. This lays under the tile and a bit more expensive than mortar boards. I also finished sanding up the floor with the angle grinder to get rid of all the existing thinset. There was a whole lotta dust and I’m just so glad that part is over. The plywood is now ready!
This past week, I also bought crown molding and painted them only to find out that the white was the wrong shade. So off to Home Depot I went again. I refer to the Home Depot as my second home.
Crown molding isn’t hard but it’s a bit tricky figuring out how to cut them in angles so they meet nicely in the corner.
This is where Jimmy shines with his mathematical skills and perfection to details. The bathroom didn’t have any crown molding so this small detail will help elevate the space and add a custom touch.
This week, I hope to lay the tile down and grout everything. What I’m learning is that everything takes so much time. If I think it’ll take 1 hour, it will most likely take 3. But it’s still been a great learning process and I’m seeing the light at the end of the very long tunnel. Even Emmy helped me paint the molding.
Oh yeah! We also had new countertops and sinks come in and that already made a huge difference! I went with white quartz and it’s gorgeous. The Jeffrey Court tile that we chose will look so beautiful with it.
Thank you so much for following along our master bathroom renovation. I would love for you to go over to Jeffrey Court to vote for us there. You can vote once a week there and see the progress of everyone else participating in this challenge. There is a whole lotta talent there so I’m in very good company.
Let all that you do be done in Love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
