DIY Network: Meet Lill (And Her Friends)

Thanks for the kind notes received during my little hiatus, it’s good to be back.

It’s official: We’ve been working on the bathroom for 2 months now. Color me happy though, because we’ve finally reached a point where it’s all about the finishing touches, no longer about removing plywood splinters from our barefoot heels, and we’re definitely beyond the point of having to take lousy baths. We’re really enjoying the finished bathroom floor (so much so that I just finished installing it in the kitchen as well – loads to come tomorrow on that scene), and I even picked up a bunch of new hand towels and a new bath mat recently to give the space a little somethin’ somethin’. Of course, you won’t see those newbies quite yet, because first I wanted to introduce you to this new friend, LILLANGEN the vanity, with her pretty ceramic sink top. And Sir GRUNDTAL, her watery-eyed faucet companion.

You can see some tips and tricks that we had to employ in this week’s post on DIY Network, and also a sneak peek of something else pretty wonderful, big, and reflective (hint, nudge, wink).

Bathroom vanity, installed (hip hip hurray)!

If you missed the beginning of this bathroom renovation series, catch up for yourself by perusing these posts:

  1. A little video introduction and tour!
  2. An overview of the materials I’ve been purchasing! Because what DIY-crazed girl wouldn’t love tile shopping?
  3. And getting down and dirty with demolition!
  4. Training a beginner to repair a drain pipe and install a bathtub!
  5. Building custom shower shelving, and learning how to install HardiBacker.
  6. And learning more than I ever thought I’d know about shower valves and PEX.
  7. Four days of tiling. No exaggeration.
  8. And then we grouted our little hearts out.
  9. Leaned on and learned about underlayment.
  10. Drank lots of coffee, painted (and re-painted), and whipped through the floor install!
  11. Not to be ignored, an important finishing touch: I made custom baseboard trim from common lumber.
