I'm all for DIY but I've never taken on a project as big as gutting a kitchen or bathroom. The mere thought of it gives me symptoms similar to a panic attack! Luckily, there are souls out in the blogosphere who are much more adventurous and I can live vicariously through them.
Ashley and Greg, over at 7th House on the Left have been gradually renovating their house and they're blogging about it every inch of the way. I'm particularly taken by their hall bathroom renovation. As you can see from the before photo above, the old bathroom was small and dated. But that's nothing these two handy homeowners can't fix.
I find the photo of the gutted bathroom both inspiring and terrifying! It's inspiring to see how the couple have reconfigured the small space to make it more usable (thanks to the extra space gained from knocking out a linen closet). But it's terrifying to think of the long road ahead. Again, thanks to the brave souls of the blogosphere for being more courageous than I.
Ashley and Greg have been making slow progress on this bathroom project, as you can see in the above photo. It's hard to believe that small, dated bathroom has been transformed into this larger, luxurious space. I'm practically chomping at the bit to see the final finished project.
You can follow the progress of this full bathroom rehab at 7th House on the Left: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5.
