The Guest Bath Deets

4.14.2015

Thanks so much for all your comments on the new guest bath reveal. I answered several questions that were left in the comments and some by emails.
I was going to add this to the reveal post, but that post was already long so I thought I would share what it cost to get this job done. Of course we saved a fortune doing the work ourselves (well mostly the mister a.k.a. handyman extraordinaire).

 



The tile, backer board, adhesive and grout came from Floor & Decor. We bought the porcelain tile which saved me a ton over the marble tile and I love it. The porcelain was $2.93 for 12 x 12 piece and the marble was $12.99 each. Huge difference in cost.

A local company called Unique Refinishers transformed the tub from brown to white. I had one comment on one of the progress posts ask wouldn't it had been better to just replace the tub with a shower? That would have cost three to four times what we paid. The wall would have had to been ripped out and reframed to replace the tub. This tub is in perfect condition. It was just the wrong color. I also feel that for resale the next family may have children who will prefer a tub in the bathrooms attached to the bedrooms upstairs. 

Many asked where the shower curtain came from and one asked about the towels. They are both from Pottery Barn. The shower curtain was a final sale, but I have two old red ticking pillows from PB so I knew the shower curtain would be perfect. I believe the red is sold out.

Here is a price break down rounded off.

  1. Beadboard and trim.....................................................................$ 400
  2. Tile floor and all supplies............................................................    160
  3. Lights over sink and tub ..............................................................  100
  4. New granite counter top and sink.................................................  207
  5. Polished nickel faucet for sink......................................................  199
  6. Polished nickel toilet paper holder................................................    26
  7. Polished nickel mirror...................................................................  129
  8. Polished nickel towel ring.............................................................    24
  9. Brass towel hooks..........................................................................   30
  10. New toilet....................................................................................... 100
  11. Shower doors removed and new curtain and liner added...............    82  
  12. Tub reglazed................................................................................... 595
  13. Cabinet, walls and trim painted (cost of paint)...............................   80
  14. Faucet and shower kit..................................................................... 140
  15. Labor...............................................................................................Free

                                                             Total.....$2272

  1. I'm even more impressed with the bathroom renovation now that I know how little you spent. The room looks like you spent about four times that much! Not having to pay for labor makes such a big difference--makes me wish I was handy. It's a really pretty room--nice job!

  2. WOW...It looks like you spent way more than that! You are lucky to have a handy husband and so am I. I wouldn't have many of things in my house if not for my handyman hubbie! We tackle projects together and it makes you appreciate things so much more!!! Still in awe of that tile floor!!!

  4. I love all of it! Floor and Decor is a great resource for tile and I love that you found that wonderful woven pattern in something other than marble; the savings is amazing (thanks for sharing this because I had no idea!) I love love love your adorable little stool and don't even get me started on the shower curtain! So...now that your guest bath is complete, I guess that it's probably okay if I move in...right?! xx

  9. It's so pretty and charming. I love all of the choices you made for finishes and decor. Your antique sign and ticking shower curtain add great color and personality! We recently had our 1930's tub and sink refinished and I'm so happy with how they turned out. Same as you - didn't want to rip out the old tub and replace it with something new.

  12. Kim, I'm so happy for you! This bathroom looks wonderful, and I'm really impressed that you were able to do so much for so little money. Way to go, Mr. Savvy!!!

    Question: Where did you get the countertop? The price is a great one! Did y'all install it yourselves?

  13. You guys did a GREAT job, Kim. And...if you had hired it out and had to pay for everything I think the average cost for a bathroom remodel is about $10,000! You did GOOD! Plus, I love all your choices. That tub looks spectacular and you are exactly right. People with kids want a tub! xo Diana
