We are making some huge gains in our master bedroom! This past week, we tore out our old bathroom to make room for our new one. Yay!
Here is a picture of what our bathroom looked like a week ago (minus the chunk my husband took out of the tub before I took this picture!)
Remember… our new master bathroom is on the other side of that window, so this whole bathroom had to be gutted.
Cy first took out the window and tore the wall out below to create the doorway to our new bathroom.
Here is the other side of the bathroom. This is the side of our bathroom that includes the vanity, shower, and claw foot tub.
Did you see a little something through the doorway?
Take a closer look….
That’s E-le-o-le-i checkin’ daddy out!
Cy couldn’t find his safety glasses, so he wore some of my sunglasses.
Oh yeah, baby!
Back to the other side…
Here is what the bathroom looked like after Cy took out the window and removed most of the tile from the walls.
Then he had the MAJOR task of removing the steel tub. That thing was a booger!!!
It got ugly, people! Plain, ugly!
But Cy finally got it all out, and we were seeing some progress!
Then Cy had to close of the bathroom door that leads into our den.
Here it is before…
And here is Katy (Eli’s bestest buddy) and Eli showing you the after…
Now let’s go back and check out the other side of the wall.
Cy put down some plywood on the floor to create an entry way into the new part of the bathroom.
There will be a little entry way that leads into a separate toilet area. Cy built a small wall in the middle of the room to create privacy. We have covered it with the same pine planks that are on our bedroom walls.
This entry way also leads into our closet (that has been our bedroom for the past year).
Here is our bedroom just a week ago. I know…a total mess!!!
Cy and I actually have NO bedroom right now.
I was soooo wanting to feel like we were making progress, so I removed our bed from our bedroom. It was my way of staking my claim! It was proof that we are very close to moving into our new master bedroom. We are about 10 days away from being finished with the first floor of our addition, so until then, we will be sleeping with the boys or on the couch!
And I am totally down with that! And so is Cy!
It makes us excited to think we are almost there!!!
So I took the bed out and moved my computer desk to the other side of the room. It’s quite the comfy office space for now, just ask Eli!
In just a couple of weeks, this room will be our master closet!!
This pictures shows you how the addition connects to what will soon be our closet.
We have also painted our master bedroom. You will be able to see that in the video.
A video is really the best way to show you all the changes we have made over the past week. So I put one together real quick to give you a better idea of how things are shaping up.
We are in the home stretch with our master bedroom and bathroom, and I am thrilled!!!
