Basement Remodel- New Bathroom

So when I decided to remodel the basement, I ADDED a bathroom. There was no bathroom downstairs, just this creepy old scary cold storage room. It was one of those rooms that I never dared enter unless I absolutely had to.

It was a huge process and I probably should post more of the photo's. Eventually I will, but for now I finally got the bathroom 98% done. I have a few little things to finish up.

This was a long, FUN project. Besides putting in the sump pump I did everything on my own (and some help from friends).



I decided a long time ago I wanted to make the vanity and countertop. It was a lot of work, but worth it.

The countertop is a cement countertop I made. I created the mold and poured the cement. It turned out really cool. I placed a bike chain around the outside for a decorative border.


The walls are a grey and I picked tourquise for the accent colors.



It was a lot of fun decorating.


Tiling the whole floor and walls took forevery, but it looked really good!


This tiny window was a great addition. Made tiling a little tricky.





The below picture is super dark, but kind of gives you an idea about the bathroom.




Glad that this big project is mostly done. Now I just need to get motivated and finish the small things like baseboards, and finalizing the doors.

Oh my heck...Please come to my house! How did you even know how to make a countertop? And to put a bike chain on it, no less. You rock. I love the color choices too.
