Here we are at week three of our girl’s bathroom renovation and I’m happy to say things are moving right along.
After demo, the bathroom has been built back up starting with new backer board. Two niches have been created in the shower.
Next came the biggest challenge of this project; leveling the floor. As I mentioned in my first post, it’s possible that the house was built this way ( somebody’s measuring mistake?) None of our other upstairs rooms have this problem.
I was curious to see how the leveling would be done, because we were dealing with about 3/4 inch difference between the left side of the room and the right side. Our contractor put a sheet of cement board down on the sub floor, then smoothed self leveling floor compound and careful leveled everything.
So now the floor is ready for tile! I splurged on oblong marble hexagon tile that mimics the picket tile in our kitchen backsplash. We drew out the tile pattern and are ready to go.
Choices to be Made
These are my top four wallpaper choices. Each paper picks up the deep blue of the vanity I chose, and each brings in a shade of peach/salmon/coral that my daughter requested.

Do you have a favorite? This is a tough one but I’m leaning toward Flowering Desert. In the end I think the white background will bring the airy feeling that we are looking for.
Next up the old original wallpaper is being removed and the walls are being patched and prepped for the new wallpaper. Then tile the shower tile goes up. Stay tuned for the progress next week!
