Half Bathroom – Where I Left Off



Now that I have the back entry of the studio mostly finished (with the exception of a few finishing touches), I need to concentrate my energy on getting the studio half bathroom finished. If you missed the post showing how the back entry looks now, you can find it here…

I really lost focus on the half bathroom over the last few weeks. I was going full steam ahead on it right up until I got to a point where I couldn’t do anything else on it until the floor was finished. Then once I started working on the studio floor, the bathroom was pretty much forgotten.

So now it’s time for me to get it finished. Here’s where I left off.

I got the geometric hand painted design finished on the walls (although I forgot to remove the tape on one wall, so I’m hoping it’ll still come off cleanly and not ruin the design). You can see the details of that project here…

I also made some custom yellow resin tiles for the backsplash/wainscoting, which you can read about here…

But I only got about 85% of those yellow tiles installed, so I need to install the rest and then grout the tile. And I only have that one section of picture frame molding behind the toilet installed, so I still need to cut and install the rest.

And then there’s the issue of the baseboard trim. I have absolutely no idea how I’m going to trim around that thing for the special toilet I had to have in this bathroom, but I have to figure out some way to make that look nice.

I got the vanity built, which you can read about here…

And I also made the resin countertop, which you can read about here…

But now I need to put all of that together and actually attach the countertop, install the sink, and install the faucet.

I’d also like to repaint the ceiling. I had originally painted the ceiling yellow, but I just don’t think it works. It draws too much attention, so I’d like to go back to a white ceiling so that the walls and vanity can be the focus of the room.

And obviously, I still need a mirror. I’ve been on the lookout for a mirror for this bathroom, and just haven’t been able to find one that I like.

And finally, the door still needs casing on the bathroom side, and the door needs to be painted.

So here’s what the complete “to do” list looks like before I can call this little bathroom finished:

  • Paint the ceiling white
  • Install crown molding (wood fill, sand, caulk and paint)
  • Remove the rest of the tape from the wall design and do any necessary touchups
  • Buy or make a mirror
  • Install the ceiling light
  • Install two outlets and hook up the electricity for the room
  • Install the door casing (wood fill, sand, caulk and paint)
  • Install the rest of the tile and then grout
  • Install the rest of the picture frame molding, baseboards (wood fill, sand, caulk and paint)
  • Finish the vanity/countertop/sink area (attach sink and countertop, hook up faucet and sink drain pipes)
  • Paint the door and install a locking door pull
  • Install the toilet

I think that’s it! I might need to go back to my daily video progress reports that I used to keep myself accountable while I was working on the pantry. Those seem to keep me focused. 🙂
