Finished the guest bathroom!

We finished the bathroom... I use the term "we" very lightly... Biff did pretty much all of it except for some demo, painting and wall paper. 

I'm so lucky to have him!!! 

During the transformation

This is how thick the concrete was was that we were busting out. 

We decided on bead board walls... Which I just LOVE!!! 

This was the shower, we got rid of the hallway cabinets so that we could extend the shower and make it 1' wider. It was really awkward before being a 2'x3' shower, 3'x3' is so much better! 

And NOW!!!!!

The beautiful shower!! Biff tiles like a professional now! He did such an amazing job! 
He tiled the doorway in Peacock slate (same tile we will be putting on the sun room floor) to give the bathroom a more masculine feel. I wanted it to be pretty but still masculine since it is Bryce's bathroom. 

I love the way the slate looks with the green walls! 

We chose textured wallpaper for the top part of the wall. This turned out really cool! It adds a little pop in a small area that we can't do much decorating in! Plus Biff trimmed the window out all fancy! I think it's perfect!! Exactly what I pictured it being like! (Actually it's better)  

We decided on a small toilet and small pedestal sink so it would give the bathroom a little bit of extra room. 

We are so happy with it and SO glad to be DONE with it. This small room was a lot of work! BUT SO WORTH IT! 

A special thanks to my neighbor Jamie for helping me put up the wallpaper!!! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Do you need an outdoor living space? 

Biff is an amazing builder and he has some free time right now. He builds Pergolas, decks and fences! Of course he builds EVERYTHING but these are the things he enjoys doing the most. 

If you are local and would like for Biff to come out and give you an estimate then please email us at TexasOutdoorLiving(at)ymail(dot)com

Please look around our blog for other pictures of all of Biff's work he has done at our house! Here are a few of our new back patio. 

Pin It

(he built the picnic table too!)

Below I have posted some pictures of other things that he has done. 

Thanks for looking and please keep him in mind if you ever need anything!!!

And we are back at it...

Lately we have been working outside. It was way too pretty to be inside... We started the deck around the end of April (beginning of May) it was a lot nicer outside than it is now. We had an ugly concrete patio out back that we completely covered with a deck... We love it!! 

(This is what the back porch looked like when we moved in.) 

(First thing we did was knock down the fireplace and that horrible fence fell down on it's own.)

After we stained 

After the deck was finished it was around 100 degrees outside everyday and we really never wanted to sit outside and enjoy it.... so this past weekend we built a huge pergola over 1/2 of the deck... we added misters and wow is it nice out there now!!! 

These last few pictures are ones that I took last night... it was dark but you can get the general idea. We stained the entire thing before we built it and then put up a fence. It worked out great... I stained the stuff and Biff built it... I truly hope I never have to stain anything else EVER for the rest of my life! haha 

I will take some pictures after work today in the day light and post them tomorrow!!! 

Well... now that the beck deck, pergola and fence are finished I went ahead and went inside and started the next project. We are finally getting to redo Bryce's bathroom. Biff and I got the toilet and sink out last night and started after the walls with sledge hammers... it's a lot of work but it's going to be so much nicer when we are finished. Here are a few pictures of where we are so far. 

This is before:

And now:

I will be knocking out tile and concrete everyday after work until I am done... I will post pictures of the bathroom as we go. Thanks for visiting!!! :)
