When I last talked about the half bath, it was in rough shape, because the pipe snapped off when we were removing the old vanity. Well, after lots of you tube videos and cuss words, Matt was able to rebuild the pipes (all by himself!):
Installing this vanity was pretty straightforward because we wanted it as flush to the lefthand wall as possible (that’s where the pipe comes out from). We leveled it with wood shims, then drilled it into studs on the back wall. The sink is cemented on with caulk. The towel is there because we’re just deathly afraid the pipes will drip- but so far so good.
Once this was done, I commenced operation wainscoting. Matt and one of his friends had put up half of it already, last February… we work at record speed over here people.
In addition to the wainscoting kit linked in above, I also used the following:
Even though the kit came pre-primed, it got pretty banged up so I gave it one coat of primer and two coats of paint and here’s where we’re at today:
I still need to caulk a few seems, replace the mirror and lights, touch up the walls, and then decorate. But it’s definitely coming along!
