Cuttin' it up
After finally arriving at a vision of the bathroom, we could now install a floor and paint the walls. Previous posts showed the original redwood wainscot hidden for decades behind old gypsum and tile-bord and we were able to clean it up and re-stain the wood. First we added a wood preservative compound to help rebind the wood fibers and then applied stain and sealer. Here are a few sneak pics of our bathroom remodel which is truly taking on a "less is more" approach. We mostly remove the junk previous owners had installed and revealed the original walls of the house. The old, ugly vinyl floor now freshly updated and this once dreary bathroom is now the happiest, brightest place in the house!
