You guys, I’m so, so excited with the progress we’ve recently made on the master bathroom. Like seriously, grinning from ear to ear happy. Because we’ve got tile on the floors and shower.
With the floor and shower walls 90% done (we still have to grout), we turned our attention to the ceiling and walls. When we demoed the bathroom, the ceiling had holes from the old shower structure. And orange peel texture under, while the rest of the ceiling was knock down. Neither of which we’re fans of. To remedy the situation, we installed pine tongue and groove boards.
We wanted the boards to run the length of the room, but that parallels the ceiling joists. So Ben cut old siding scraps to nail in place, and then nail the T and G into.
Knowing we’ll add the claw foot tub we pulled out of the main bathroom, we wanted a little extra to protect the sheet rock walls. Here’s the tub’s current condition:
After tossing around a few options, we settled on tongue and groove boards three feet up the walls.
We’ve still got a few boards to install, but it’s looking rather rustic and cabin-y in there. Which isn’t my favorite look, so we’ll paint the ceiling and walls glossy white.
I spent a few hours last night filling nail holes and sanding down drywall. I’m hoping to get everything primed over the weekend. After that, we can grout and put the tub and toilet in place. Then build the vanity. Already, it feels like we’re moving faster on this than the main bathroom. What projects are you working on? Any tongue and groove in your house?
