Classic Bath Looks Original: After

Who: Stephanie I.
Where: Denver

After gutting the bathroom down to the studs, we began our remodel by moving the south wall out by about 12 inches and framing the original door into the wall to be used as a pocket door, allowing for more space inside the bathroom. All of the electrical and plumbing were updated, as well as the old window. The floor tile pattern was chosen to try to keep with the age of the house, and tiles had to be individually cut where the black meets the white throughout the floor. The beadboard used on the walls was salvaged from the sun porch, and the original baseboard and trim was reused in the bathroom as well. The claw-foot tub (dated 12-19-1901 on the bottom) was also refinished on just the outside, as the inside was still in pristine condition.

Who did the work: I did most of the work myself.
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
