It’s getting real around here y’all!
In a matter of a few hours, we went all #demoday on our kids’ bathroom. And I have to confess that it was liberating and terrifying all at the same time. No turning back now!
In case you missed it before, you can read all about our big plans and vision for this space in this post.
It’s a good thing we did tear it down to the studs because we discovered our old galvanized pipes running all the way down to our crawl space were 95% clogged. That was just proof to us that it was definitely time for this project to happen.
We are working with a contractor on this since some of the projects involved are a little beyond our limits, but we are definitely taking this as a learning experience.
When I walked through all of our plans for this space, several of y’all mentioned concerns about using an open table for a vanity. And I realized I didn’t really share a glimpse of our big linen closet in this bathroom.
It’s very deep and holds pretty much all of our towels, toiletries, and the girls’ bath toys. And it’s pretty much the only thing in this bathroom that will remain intact.
So now that we’ve discovered the big plumbing issue, the pipes will be replaced and the single sink plumbing will be spliced for two.
Then the exciting stuff… walls!
I’ll be sharing more of a tour of where we are so far on my Instagram Stories later today. It all definitely has to be an improvement from here!
