Yesterday , I broke the news about my ginormous huge gargantuan …..well you get the point….challenge:
The worlds ugliest bathroom make-over. Budget? I get zero. zilch. nada, to make-over this
First thing’s first :
What HAS to stay?
tile – If I started ripping away tile, the drywall would be too badly damaged to repair without moolah.
floor- a small piece of linoleum or even laminate wood flooring wouldn’t cost very much for this space. But, again, I have no money to put into it. So, I have to work with what I have.
The mystery hole- drywall would have to be used to patch this space, I have none.
toilet,shower, sink, vanity – Much too expensive to replace
electrical – no use removing what doesn’t work if I can’t re-patch the drywall.
What can go?
Wallpaper- wall paper is fairly easy to remove . All you need is something to scrape with and a bottle of 50/50 fabric softener and water.
shower curtain- I think I can come up with a replacement
Not too much can actually leave this space, which is where my challenge lies.
The blue and white tile staying put, I realize I have to use blue in the space . So, that was my starting point.
There are also some blue tones in the floor. I would try to find a way to mesh the two together.
After ripping off the wallpaper I discovered a lot of the wall paper glue wouldn’t come off the wall easily and ended up damaging some of the wall. I did ,however, have some drywall mud. Now I have to wait until that dries.
While I was waiting for the drywall mud to dry I stared at the space asking it to give me inspiration.
I hated the floor.How was I going to make it work? I even realized , at some point, that it was laid crooked . nice.
Then it hit me! I had an awesome idea.
You’ll have to wait to find out what I have up my sleeve.
Until then, Here is a little glimpse .
Even in it’s dingy , cave like appearance ; It’s looking better already. Isn’t it?
