Bathroom Remodel with Home Depot: Step 3

By | Decorating, DIY Projects | 4 Comments

We have been working on updating our Bathroom. Earlier this month, we headed to the Renew and Redo Event at Home Depot, we found lots of great ideas and products to help us remodel our bathroom, and went to work.

The next step was to replace the shower head. We bought a Waterpik Medallion and the Shower Arm with flange to connect it to the wall. Here is where we started…

Doug took down the old shower head and replaced it. After gathering the tools he needed, it didn’t take long at all…maybe about 15 minutes.

We all LOVE the new shower. It has multiple settings, one with a massaging action, which I love! After the shower head was replaced, it was time to hang the new curtain.

We couldn’t replace the whole shower door and the way it’s set up, it wouldn’t work to simply remove it. Plus, with 3 teenage boys, I figured there might be more water on the floor than in the shower. So, we decided to stay within our budget and take the frugal way out.

We bought a tension rod, in the same brushed nickel that we did for the shower head. It was quick and easy to install, with no drilling necessary.

Now the ugly gold shower door is hidden behind the new beautiful white shower curtain…

Our next step is to replace the towel racks and toliet paper holders, although we may have a little problem. The set we bought doesn’t perfectly fit over the hole in the ceramic tile. And drilling a new hole, may crack the tile…which, obliviously we DON’T want to do.

We are thinking we may try to paint the existing holders like we did the ceiling fan.

Do you have any ideas for us??

Remodeling our Bath with Home Depot: Step 2

By | Decorating, DIY Projects, Fix It | No Comments

Do you remember all the great products that we found at Home Depot to Remodel our Bathroom?

Our bathroom was in desperate need of a little TLC.  We wanted to keep it simple and not spend a lot of money. We headed to the Home Depot Renew and Redo Event and found everything we needed.

We started with the prep work, the most boring part as far as I’m concerned.

Doug took the Light Fan down first, then started taping off the ceiling. Our walls have ceramic tile so we don’t need to paint those, but the ceiling and the trim needed a coat or two.

The tile has a very subtle shade of silvery blue, so we chose this beautiful Antique Silver made by Glidden.

Doug painted the ceiling first, removing the lights. While he was busy working on that, I started painting the Light Fan.

First, let me begin by saying, you probably should not spray paint on top of brick pavers, unless you want your husband aggrevated with you.

  1. I used rubbing alcohol to clean off the fixture
  2. Using spray paint is a frugal way to change the color
  3. Remove the glass part that covers the light bulb
  4. I used Rust-Oleum Metallic in Satin Nickel color

A short while later, the ceiling was done…

Then it was time to start the trim. Doug says he really likes how the paint is covering, that it flows really well.

Stay tuned for more on the bathroom remodel…

Remodeling our Bath with Home Depot: Step 1

By | Decorating, DIY Projects | 4 Comments

A couple weeks ago I told you about remodeling our bath with Home Depot…well we went shopping for our supplies. I’m so excited to get started on it.

I also held a giveaway for a $100 Home Depot Gift Card, and the winner is…Katydid says I like Its a blog party facebook page. She has been notified.

Now…on with the bathroom. Here are the products we bought…

When Doug and I went to the Home Depot for the Renew and Redo Event, we were a bit overwhelmed at first. In fact, after about 30 minutes we decided to just look around, go home, talk it over and go back to shop. Well, the more we walked around and the more we talked about what we wanted, the more clear it became. We ended up spending 2 hours there, but bought just about everything we needed.

We were also very impressed with the customer service. I know we are probably “old school,” but it sure is nice to go into a store where the employees are really friendly and VERY helpful. We had LOTS of questions, and when the employee that was helping us couldn’t answer our question about our shower, he went and found the plumbing specialist to help us.

We ended up deciding it was going to be WAY too much money to fix everything we want to, so we decided to just change the shower head for now. And we bought a shower curtain and rod to hang in front of the glass door enclosure to kind of hide it. The walls have ceramic tile, which I like, it makes for easy clean up, but it’s difficult to remodel anything with out totally cutting into the tile.

  1. Paint…We bought Glidden in Antique Silver for the ceiling and trim and Rust-Oleum Metallic for the ceiling light and fan
  2. Faucet and Towel racks…Edgewood 3 piece Bath Accessory Kit came with Towel Ring and Bar and Toilet Paper Holder {we bought 2 sets} and a matching Edgewood Bath Faucet. And a glass shelf too.
  3. Shower…The Shower Head is a Waterpik Medallion, Luxury Shower Rod and a Zenith Shower Curtain in white.
  4. Accessories…We found a fluffy rug in a burgundy color and a runner to put down in front of the shower. I’m excited about the splash of color this will add. We also desperately needed a new baseboard vent as you can see from the pictures below.

How are we going to use all these great products? Let me show you…

We will paint the ceiling and trim in the Antique Silver. I’m not sure you can see the spots on the ceiling, but it’s in desperate need of painting and obliviously the back of the door needs a good scraping and painting as well. For the ceiling light, we bought some Rust-Oleum and will try to paint it, a replacement light is around $60, so we will try the frugal way first.

The Baseboard Vent will get replaced, as well as the gold faucet. We also bought a new glass shelf with brushed nickel finish.

The Glass Shower Door and all the fixtures are in gold, so we will replace as many of the fixtures that we can in brushed nickel finish.  We will add the shower rod and curtain in front of the shower door, a much more frugal way instead of spending $400+ to replace the door. The shower head will get replaced with the Waterpik Medallion. With the help of the plumbing specialist, we figured it would be around $800 to totally change the faucet handles in the shower as well.
