Finished Bathroom

Well here is the final outcome, before and after (minus the trim we still have left to do)
Before and after

To fill in where I left off. I got the light installed. Then we were waiting to figure out about the flooring. We decided to hire out the tile because with Kyle in class and me working every third weekend and then our trip to Missouri and ultimately guest coming (that was our goal - we HAD to have the bathroom in workable condition before they came) we were just too busy to try and do it ourselves so we had a professional do it. It was taking forever to get them scheduled. But I knew I was going to have to get the floor ready so I got that done before we went to Missouri.


While in Missouri we got the call and scheduled the tile install for Thursday and Friday. We were driving home through the night on Tuesday so that meant Wednesday we needed to get the toilet out of there, make sure the floor was good and ready, and I wanted to get behind the toilet painted before the tile was put in. When we got the toilet out we noticed the flange was all rusted and pretty much un-usable as we couldn't even locate where the bolts were going to go.

So we spent our fourth of July at home depot getting what we needed. (and I continued to return to the store almost every day for a week returning items and getting odds and ends we needed).

We installed a new flange:

And I painted and got the floor ready:

So they came to tile Thursday and then grouted on Friday.

This left the weekend for us to haul butt and try and get it all installed... only problem was I worked all weekend so we had between the hours of wake - about 2:00 to get as much done as we could.  Saturday we got the vanity installed and the sink put in as well.

And Sunday we got the toilet installed:

We also got the mirror hung before I left for work on Sunday. All was good for our visitors!!! The only big thing we had left was another cabinet but we didn't end up getting that hung until Friday evening.

Here's a picture of the cubby shelf we installed a while ago as it was something we could mark off the list before the flooring was installed.

Hip Hip Hooray!
