The Boys’ Bathroom Update

Oh my goodness!  I cannot believe how long it has taken us to get the boys’ bathroom finished!

I’m kind of embarrassed about it.  It’s been so long that most of you have probably even forgotten that we were even doing it! Smile

Well, Cy and I are trying to knock it out this week.  So yesterday, we started adding the wall treatment to the walls.  I was wanting to do something different than board and batten (which I love,) so we are going with a horizontal wall treatment.


We finished two walls yesterday, and today, I am going to fill in all the nail holes and sand them down to get ready to paint.  The wall will be painted white all the way up to the top piece of wood.

We’ve been struggling with completed their shower/bath.  We have two walls tiled, but the third wall has been giving us fits.  We originally had the wall going up about 6 feet, but it really chopped the bathroom in half and we didn’t like how it looked visually.  photo 2


So we cut the wall down to only about 4 feet.  We are going to have to be creative with how we do the shower curtain rod, but we think we know what we are going to do. photo 1

I know y’all are probably like, “Huh?  What are they doing?”  But I promise it will look great when we are finished.  Smile

We are hoping to make the concrete vanity tops this week too.  I am dying to get this bathroom finished so the boys can use it!

They’ve been using our guest bath downstairs, and it is time for them (and their messes) to be UPSTAIRS!

So that is what we are working on this week!

What have you been up to lately?!

  1. Bathrooms can be so difficult, especially when they are for children and you have to design the room for them to use it now while planning a design that you won’t have to re-do once they have grown up.

    I don’t know how waterproof or cost effective it may be, but have you thought of installing glass blocks on the top half of the short wall in the shower? They come in all sorts of different colors, offer a certain amount of privacy, and still allow light flow.

    I follow another DIY blogger who poured her own cement countertops in the kitchen she is remodeling. It looks like a lot of work, but they turned out very nice. If you would like the link I can provide it to you.

    I look forward to seeing your finished bathroom. It is always exciting to watch!

  2. I’m intrigued! I hope you’re still using those barn light fixtures you bought a couple of years ago for their bath. They’ll look great in this space. L(Why didn’t you just take the wall to the ceiling and add shelves to the back? That’s what I did and it worked out great.

  3. I can tell it is going to be really cute and cottagey … I love board and batten! Thanks for the inspiration : )

  4. I am in the early stages of a master bath makeover and don’t want to go with typical big box store vanities. Loved the what I assume is going to be the sink vanity in your boy’s new bathroom. Can you tell me where you got that? Thank you! Love your site!

  5. Can’t wait! I remember the awesome red vanities you guys made and how you said the plan was concrete counter tops…I’ve been so excited!
    Hope the sanding and prepping went well! : )

  6. This bathroom is already well on it’s way to being gorgeous!!! Excited about the finished “Reveal”… Traci, why not use glass block or just a glass insert on the end cap??? just a thought… lol!!!!

  7. I was wondering if you and Cy had finished the bathroom. I think it’s going to look exactly what you all had envisioned. Loving the red vanities. Can’t wait to see all the finish details you do.
