Emily Winters: A Bathroom Renovation Preview

I’m taking on a big project this winter – my first ever bathroom renovation. It’s huge for me, and I’m excited about the challenge!

Check out this little video to learn more about what I’m going to be tackling in the upcoming weeks (and get a little tour in the process).

I’m putting a stake in the ground and vowing to stay within a self-mandated $1,500 budget for the whole job. That will include the new vanity, new mirror, new tub and shower tile, new floor, and new baseboards and trim for the 75-sq. ft. bathroom. Hopefully with a little bit of shopping around and old fashioned DIY know-how, I’ll make it a reality this winter.

Are you with me? Check back often for updates.
