I was about to drop the coin for this one ($200+ with everything I wanted), I literally had my finger on the mouse ready to pay for it:
Until saying I was going to wait one more day and try to find something a little more in my budget.
Finding this one was way more in our budget at $89.97:
The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the color. It was a bit dark for the bathroom so out came the spray paint. I knew the entire time that whatever color we painted the vent, the light was getting the same color to tie the two together more!
Two coats of Rust-oleum's Painter's Touch Ultra Coverage in "Eden" and we were super happy with the results!
Once it was dry the hubs brought it in and reinstalled it in the bathroom and I think I was jumping up and down with excitement!! Instead of an epic fail, this was an epic win in my books! I even found an "old vintage style" light bulb to use instead of the newer ones which I think really adds...it's the small things that make me the happiest!
Here's the updated list as of of everything we need to do and need to buy for this project:
Clean out crap aka: empty boxes and dog food from the room Clear out any remaining debris and rip up remaining flooring Remove/replace unused pipe/electrical wiring Replace any weak flooring Install piping for shower/faucet Update electrical Buy concrete board and drywall Frame out shower and built-in Insulate walls Install concrete board and drywall Figure out if we are doing a shower basin or having a tiled shower floor Buy tile Install tile Grout tile Caulk corners Seal grout Paint
- Touch up paint
- Paint/seal interior of built in
- Remember that we forgot a bunch of little stuff that we will buy and take forever to put in.
