Yes we started a bathroom remodel the week before Thanksgiving!
Well it really wasn't our choice but the tub wasn't draining and we were planning to do the remodel sometime so it just seemed best to do it all at once instead of fixing one problem just to tear it all out again later.

Our house is 50+ years old so it was TIME

Our progress in photos.

Day One
The before, see that spot in the middle of the wall above the tub? There used to be a handle with a soap dish. Coco pulled it off a couple of weeks ago and we had plastic ducked taped over the sheet rock. Another reason it needed attention.

I have despised this tile forever. Ugly peachy color all the way around the room.
Day 1
1. Total Demo
2. Purchased subflooring and bathtub

Day Two 

Scott worked hard getting it to this point. He had to scrap up the subfloor after taking everything out.

End of day 2. Too much money spent. We went and purchased everything we need and a couple of wants. I really wanted this curved shower rod. We debated on getting doors but this will be our only tub and I didn't want it to feel really closed in. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Day 2
1. Removed subfloor
2. Installed new subfloor
3. Sanded walls
4. Purchased everything else we will need

Day three

A little mishap in the hall when Scott was in the attic installing the vent fan. His foot came through the ceiling.

I get 2 new plug ins. One more in the bath and one outside in the hall. Now I will have to find some cute lamps to put in.

The room looks the same.
Day 3
1. Removed gas stove insert.
2. Installed and wired 3 plugs
3. Prepped for the vent fan (the one we bought was broken)

Scott says we might get the tub installed tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed.
