Update #1: The Smallest Room in the House
After we removed the hated wallpaper, the next thing on the agenda was getting rid of the almond colored tub with vinyl surround. It took some sawing and cutting, but we (by we, I mean my dad) got it out! Yay!!!!
Then, once the tub was out, the floor could come out. We kept the bit at the back of the bathroom, where the sink and toilet sit, so that we could use that area for as long as possible. (The floor came up quite easily, otherwise, we probably would have opted to take it all up at the same time. )
When it was time for the new tub to go in, we took out the toilet, sink and the remaining flooring and prepared for a new tub and a new floor. Skip ahead (work, work, work and more work) and the new tub was in place, as was the new flooring (sans grout). At this point, things really started to some together; it was getting easier, by the day, to see the finished room in my head.
Next up, subway tile in the bath surround! Are we all excited!?
