Renovating pictures!!

Here are some before and after photos! I'll add some more later! I still need to take pictures of the tufted headboard and bedroom and bathroom area! I don't have all the roman shades up so that's why some windows are currently bare, since I'm making them myself they're taking some time

Some more photo's!

Some more before/after photos. Again I don't have true "before" photos just had to find some! Ignore my cute dog I was showing you the old headboard! The new one I tufted myself, the first time I've ever done anything like this! The other curtains aren't put up yet but they'll be the same as previous photos. I also reupholstered the fabric that was in layed in the bed slide out! Of course new sconces and changed all the hardware from the bronze to the Oil rubbed bronze!

We spray painted the metal on the shower, was gold, don't have a photo of course! Also put down wood plank flooring used to be sold sheet of linoleum! We'll be changing the floor registers from the ones shown. You can see the old one in the photo and then a newer one I tried and still didn't like so I have other ones on order! My husband also plumbed in a portable dishwasher that is probably what I'm most happy about, although I'll have to use a step stool to reach it since it's above the washer/dryer. Will add more photos of living room after we get it all cleaned up!

All great photos!

Just curious though why your DH wouldn't have put the washer/dryer at the top? It's a front load and the door opens sideways. With the dishwasher on the bottom the door would flip down and you wouldn't need the step stool. Just a thought.

WOW great pictures again! My question is did you paint over the wall paper and use a paint with primer in it?

Have you seen any ware on the painted metal of your shower? I have wanted to do that but wasn't sure if it would scratch off easily or not. Love all of the changes and you have motivated me to make the changes I want to make myself.

I would also like to know more about the painted shower trim. What type of paint did you use, and how did you prepare the surface?

You can't see it well in the picture but my DH had built a shelf to put the washer/dryer on (we've had it for years now) and I slide my laundry basket underneath it to keep it out of the way! My DH suggested putting it down there but I really didn't want to loose that space! Moving the washer/dryer up would be a real project as it's shimmied in there weighs close to 200 lbs! So for now I guess I'll use my handy step stool and tote to carry in the dirty dishes, can't complain too much since I've been wanting one for forever!


Now to answer the questions about the Shower! We took the screws out that were holding all the metal plates onto the tub then we had 3 section of glass with the metal all around and the bottom pieces. My DH then took the glass out of the metal, although I don't recommend that since it took him forever to figure out how to put it all back together, regardless of labeling it! I would suggest tapping plastic over the glass, might be easier! We then took it outside and washed and lightly sanded the metal. Then added a spray paint glue that would help the spray paint to adhere, then used Rust-oleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint that was good for indoor/outdoor use (therefore water proof ) We haven't used it yet but we did use that spray for almost EVERYTHING. All of the recessed lighting, screws, hardware on our sliding glass door, the metal strip on top of the step. So far everything has held up and when you touch it it isn't tacky or thick and doesn't feel like it would peel it feels like it's been there all along! The metal strip on the step was our main concern since it's stepped on daily. So far no issues with that either! A guy did tell me his son had sprayed his drain in his bathtub ORB and its held up for a long time. We also switched out the spout on the tub to a brushed nickel one (was an ugly white plastic) and put in a new shower hose! I can't wait to use it once we go back on the road! I will say my DH is foreman for an industrial painting company so he is pretty good with spray painting and wouldn't let me do it for fear I'd put it on to thick and mess it up! So I think the key is getting an nice even coat on it so it doesn't peel off!


Thanks for all of the comments! I love it since it took us months and you all make me feel like it was time well spent so thank you!
