Don's DYI Bathroom

Our bathroom has needed remodeling since we bought this house many years ago, but it's always been to expensive and too overwhelming to do. Well, the day has come. The toilet started leaking, and when Don went to replace it, he discovered that it has been installed wrong to begin with, and had been leaking for a very long time. So long, in fact, that the subfloor in that area is rotted. We realized that it was time. And we also realized that this would have to be a DYI project. Thankfully, Don can do most of it.

Here is the lovely bathroom tile. Isn't that '50's pink gross? We were so happy to see it go.

And here is the demo in progress. Go Don!

Most of the walls are done. Tomorrow he'll finish that off, and then it's on to the ceiling and floor. Ugh!


  1. We started ours last summer. Discovered a lot of things the previous builders did wrong. Good luck with yours!

  2. 50's pink? I have the "Avocado Green", so far I have gotten rid of the green stove, the green wall oven, and the green toliet. The green fridge went down before we bought the house.

    Currently remaining is the green tub and a green sink, oh and instead of tiles my bathroom has matching green laminate. Best of luck to you and your bathroom remodel, hopefully it wont be overly awful.
