Bathroom Progress + New Shower

Bathroom Progress + New Shower

Over the past two weeks, a ton of progress has been made on the lake house bathroom. First, I finished mudding, sealing, and texturing the drywall.

Then, I installed the shower base. It fit perfectly in the spot where the old tub was, and I was able to hook the drain directly into the old drain pipe from the bathtub.

After the base, I installed the shower walls, did the plumbing work for the shower fixture, and completed some additional drywall work around the shower wall edges.

I did some ceiling work, installing a new light fixture and covering the giant hole in the ceiling that was left by the old electric heating system.

Then, I finished texturing all of the drywall and painted the ceiling.

Finally, I removed the toilet and sealed, primed, and spackled the previously inaccessible wall behind it.

Next up is actually painting the walls, then installing a new toilet. I’m planning on painting the walls a very light sea foam green, which fits with the overall mid century modern meets lake house theme. I am sticking with a very light color since there is no natural light shining into the bathroom and I don’t want it to be overly dark.
