The bathroom was actually the first room that required major work and honed lots of DIY skills. We spent four months tiling, drywalling, installing wainscoting with Shaker-style pegs, assembling and hanging a medicine cabinet—and painting the room. Twice.
Redoing the room under the guidance of our patient plumber gave us courage, but working alongside him was also humbling. He demolished the tub and installed a new one in just two days! Our part of the work took four whole months! Part of the problem stemmed from our backgrounds as designers... Shown:
