Bathroom Makeover




We were always going to renovate the bathroom in our house 
but when we were ready.
Not to be...

 The dodgy plumber hadn't installed the shower base correctly, so over the past 8 years that we have been living here, water had been slowly escaping from the tiles (gaps in the grout) and destroying walls, carpet etc..
Insurance say it's a maintenance issue ( of course they do!!)
Lucky Daddy Moz can do most of it.



These next photos are so ugly, 
I actually thought twice about posting them.




Beautiful Boat feature Tiles!


The Mould on the walls went through to Ella's bedroom on the other side. Completely ruined her carpet, Tallboy & Bookshelves. 
Lucky her clothes were saved!




After a removing everything in the bathroom & cleaning up.
Daddy Moz started.




We bought all the tiles from ebay for $220 & 
there is still enough to do the kids bathroom. 
SCORE!!



Daddy Moz had never tiled before & he did an unreal job.
Even the plumber asked who did the tiling for us!





 Final touches & then done!

The vanity, Toilet & Shower were all purchased from the same seller off ebay.
We managed to cut a better deal with them.
Daddy Moz made the mirror & cupboard.

  7. It looks great! We just had our bathroom redone, though had to hire out. It was too immense of a job to handle with a baby and a four year old underfoot. And it's our only shower, so we had to get it done quickly.

  8. Nice job! We are working on remodeling our bathroom right now, too. We completely started from scratch just like you did. Luckily, my husband does construction for a living, so we can do it all ourselves. I had a lot of fun taking the sledgehammer to the walls! We have a party coming up in two weeks, and I'm really hoping we get done before then!
