Small Bathroom Renovation Ideas?

Good Questions

Q: My partner Karen and I just bought a 1914 farmhouse in North Portland. It's got a ton of charm-- and also a ton of to-dos! One of the projects we inherited is a tiny half bath/powder room (photos below) that the previous owner had crammed a fiberglass kit corner shower into. The shower is leaking (not to mention ugly) and we need to deal with it ASAP.

The room itself is just about 30 sf, which is to say, tiny. We want to replace the shower, keep the existing toilet, and exchange the pedestal sink for something with a little storage beneath. We also want to redo the flooring and possibly tile (or otherwise improve) the plaster walls. We don't want to (read: can't afford to) move around the plumbing or change the footprint, so we're pretty much stuck with the current configuration. We're happy to DIY some of this project, but we'll probably need to call in the professionals for anything elaborate.

Help!
