Basement Bathroom

After having my mom and my grandma come to visit over Christmas, Brett and I decided that we would finish the bathroom in the basement before the next visit. We were thinking that my mom would be coming again around April sometime, but when she called to see if she could come on President's Day (which was Feb. 21st), we had to really get a move on things to have them ready in about three weeks.

Thankfully the drywall had been hung and it had been taped and textured. So we had to start by priming the walls and the ceiling and then painting over everything.

The kids were so excited to help!


But Brooks was more of a hindrance than a help.

We got the paining done, the light fixtures in and the tile laid.

Unfortunately I totally slacked and didn't get picture of the cabinets being put in. Probably because it was Brett and I heaving and pulling, and pushing, in and out and around until we finally got it just right. Then came the toilet, sink, and faucets.

Unfortunately again, that's as far as we got when my mom got here. The shower worked and the toilet worked, but the counter top wasn't finished, so we couldn't hook up the sink. But it still partially worked for while my mom was here.

But as of Wednesday (yesterday) the rest of the trim is up, the counter top is done, the sink is working, hooks are up on the wall for towels, and the drawers are stocked. So, now this is what it looks like...
Now all that I have left to do is to seal the grout, get a big mirror, and some rugs, trash can, toilet paper holder, and a towel ring. So close! But still usable for company to come!!

Nope, Lynae. They are now work clothes. :(

I love it! It is so nice to have an extra bathroom, isn't it? It makes you wonder how you ever got along with just one or two in the house. :)

Jenny, I cleaned the house yesterday and I thought to myself, WHY did I think I needed FOUR bathrooms in one house?! But it will be nice for when we have people come to stay with us. :)
