Before & After: Pretty and Pink bathroom










 
During the messy processes.





The bathroom is done....it was no easy task. Kyle did most of it, ok all of it! He took a sledge hammer to the pretty pink walls for hours and hours. I packed up the kids and left, it was L*O*U*D. I know this vintage pink bathroom is all the rage/trend right now. I didn't love it. I tried. There is a blog dedicated to saving pink bathrooms, they would be so disappointed in me. check it out here. If you have one of the lucky 5 million homes built with a pink bathroom between 1946-1966. You may just want to preserve each and every tile, you can sell them for good money. Don't mind the disgusting dirty water in the tub, it wouldn't drain and there was a slow drip in the faucet.





This is the end result. They pictures aren't the greatest, color is off on a few but you get the point. I love the new updated look.

MaRea it looks amazing! Kyle did an great job! I want to see the rest of the house. Bet it feels good to shower in that beauty now! When we were looking to buy houses out here they are all old houses and ALL the bathrooms looked like your before pictures. They are either pink, blue, or yellow even, or black and white. That is what determined whether i could consider buying was the bathroom HAD to be renovated. And since my husband I dont think would ever be as dedicated to the bathroom as your sweet husband, I am afraid to say we are still renting. Some day some day. But it really looks awesome!

AWESOME!!! Want to come do my house?? I have lack of creativity when it comes to that kind of stuff. Nice work!

YES!!! I brush my teeth in the shower too. Steve makes fun of me relentlessly, but I'm all about the multitasking.

(I scrape my tongue at the sink because I like watching in the mirror!)
