As Finished As You'll Get

Welcome back! This afternoon I wanted to take some time to look back at our little Toronto home. Last week, while catching up on some blogs, I realized I never gave you a full reveal of our bathroom makeover. Crazy right? Well, I guess that's probably because we never even saw our bathroom completely finished. Um, WHAT? Yeah. My father had to finish a few things like the transition between the bathroom and the "hallway" and putting up a shower curtain rod AFTER we moved out. 

Even without pictures of the 100% complete bathroom (or as close to 100% as we would get), I thought I would do a mini reveal (with the 1 "after" photo that I have). So first things first, why not take a trip down memory lane and check out the bathroom when we first moved in, in July 2009...

Upstairs Bathroom

Ooooh, absolutely ugly - no? WOW! What did we ever see in this little house? haha. Anywho - we painted up that bathroom the day we moved in, tile and all, and that October we painted the wood vanity. So for two years, we lived with our bathroom looking like this...

Upstairs Bath - July 2011

Still not the best, but significantly better than what we had started with, thanks to lots of paint and a new toilet! Then, along came Halle... and with a baby meant the need for a tub. So, back in November we started to rip it all out and start again. It was a long process (clearly), and before we left, the bathroom was looking like this...


Probably not the best angle, but I guess I thought the floor was  a bit more important that the ceiling. Makes sense, right? Taken from the exact same spot as the previous photos as well.

Oh, how I wish I had, had more time to enjoy that little bathroom! B and our father's did such a fabulous job making that place as great as it turned out. I'm glad that at least Halle had a chance to bathe in there quite a few times before we left.

Subway Tile: RONA
Vanity: IKEA
Faucet & Shower Hardware: Delta Faucets

  1. love the floor tile going up the side of the tub. looks incredible :)

  2. Oh my goodness - what a change. Are you saying you didn't like the original red tile?? ha :) Even you painting it makes it look great, but the extra space and full tub with the layout change are the real game changers. You guys did a great job (and your dads) - hope whoever is living there now is loving it.

  3. what a transformation Kerry! whoever is occupying your lovely little house much be in heaven!!
