Finished DIY bath - before/afters

DH and I have just finished our very small guest bath remodel in our fixer/home. Removed wallpaper, flooring, existing door, all fixtures, most drywall. We moved the tub and pipes to the back wall, reinsulated walls, drywall and textured, installed glass blocks, ceiling exhaust fan/light, 3 seperate areas of lights on dimmers, 5' whirlpool tub with heater and extra insulation, all new tiled floors and walls, new toilet and fixtures, HD granite sink.

We spent a lot of time making sure the tub surround would not hold standing water from the shower and it's perfect. We went with all neutral colors so that I could change the accessories. We still need to frame some pics. DH built the cherry vanity and I built the tall storage cabinet. I am in 7th heaven with that tub.

You did a great job! The cabinets are fantastic and look nice with the counter top.

Thank you so much. It was a lot of work but every time I walk in I'm pleased with the way it has turned out. I absolutely love my tub. It fits me perfectly and is great to soak and read in. Now on to the kitchen.
