Boys Bathroom Before
Sadly, this boys bathroom has not changed at all since we moved into our century old farmhouse over 3 years ago.
However, I have LOTS of boys bathroom ideas for this bathroom remodel!
Warning, lots of ugly pics below :). Yikes!
Knowing we were going to tear this bathroom apart soon after taking these pictures below I didn’t clean up the bathroom first.
Although I am still unclear of the history of this room we are fairly certain it was originally a sleeping porch before plumbing was ever added.
At some point in the late 70s (based on a penny found in the wall 🙂 a very sad bathroom renovation happened.
The ceiling over the tub was lowered & the original claw foot tub was taken out.
I am not gonna lie I shed a few tears over the knowledge of a former claw foot tub!
A leaking plastic almond colored tub & a very long laminate single sink console were added.
There is also 2 layers of wallpaper on the wall that were painted over, 2 layers of laminate flooring & a ceiling that was covered with contact paper.
Yup, we have our work cut out for us!!!
The plan is to completely gut the room from top to bottom.
We already opened up the drop ceiling over the tub to bring back the original vaulted ceiling.
Thankfully, the original ceiling was still there!
I love the look of the bead board ceilings we added to the boys bedrooms so we will be adding a PVC bead board ceiling to the boys bathrooms.
The ugly & outdated tub, sink and toilet will be gone.
We will be adding a new tile backsplash to the tub, new tile floors, & lighting along with a new GORGEOUS tub, sink, toilet & fixtures from Kohler.
We will be adding more bead board to the bathroom walls and painting the walls and the trim.
Lastly we will adding a built in bookshelf for towel and bathroom storage.
