Well Hello, There. Last November Everett’s bathroom sprung a leak. We shut off the water and closed the door. I went about my days as if that basement flood never happened. Totally normal behavior.
Fast forward four months and we finally got things patched up. Since everything had to be torn out before we could put it back together again, we gave Everett’s bathroom a fresh look, too.
I decided on a locker room vibe. Basic. Easy to clean. Perfect for a 4 year old boy and beyond.
This is the first project in our house with zero DIY. It was completed in two weeks by our contractor’s crew. Here are a few ways to save when you aren’t going the DIY route:
-Use basic and commercial/industrial products and install in interesting ways. I snagged inexpensive, outdoor lights and installed two lights above the mirror. Just a little bit quirky and unexpected. And used a laundry faucet that looks oh so much like the $400 one at Rejuvenation. On the next post I’ll show you how we prepped up $.79 VCT Tile. Yup that stuff that clad your middle school floors.
-Do the design work yourself. Pick the finishes. And order the supplies (with guidance from your contractor)
-Don’t change your mind. Changing things mid project is a recipe for extra cha ching on that bill.

How did you prep the floor for vct install? Did you take the floor to the subfloor or lay over tile (although this rr looks carpeted originally)?
Hi! Yes it was carpeted. This was not a DIY. The subfloor was demo’ed to fix plumbing. A new subfloor was laid. Glue wad then applied to the entire floor and you let it sit for a couple hours before applying tile.
