DIY Bathroom Hardware

There were a lot of little choices we made throughout the process of renovating our basement bathroom. Those little choices can add up to made a big difference in the overall feel of a room. Nothing about them are make or break, but they definitely make the whole space feel uniform and tied together. I always love hearing the stories behind other people’s design choices, so I hope you get some value out of this when deciding which finishing touches to add to your own room! The details are my favorite.

DIY Shower Glass Installation

Our shower is done! Well, not quite. We still might frost our shower glass, or add decals to it. But for all intents and purposes, it’s done and completely shower-ready! We knew we wanted a portion of the shower wall to be glass, but no more than that. So we framed it all out and planned to tackle the logistics later. And now it’s later…

Shower Jet Installation

We’ve taken a week off from the shower due to some other things that came up (and enjoying Mother’s day weekend of course) but we’re happy to report that we’ll be done by the end of the week! Joe worked nearly 70 hours last week, so we didn’t get much done at home, but that’s ok because we were waiting for our glass piece to get precisely cut. Now that we’ve got that, we’re right back in there. It’s a perfectly rainy week for us to wrap up.

P.S. We’ve now officially lived in the house for 1 year! Happy house-versary! Here’s a throwback of us on moving in day.

It’s literally what cements everything together and makes it look unified. If you missed the grouting tips, go back to our shower floor post and brush up. Otherwise, enjoy!
