Valerie wrote us the other day to show off her remodeled bathroom and I had to share it on the blog because we LOVE a good remodel here on DTI. Here are the details:
"Our current home is a loft in Midtown Atlanta and while it is a different type of home than most of your readers post about but it fits our style. Recently we completely renovated our bathroom. We only have one bathroom in our 2 bedroom loft, so making it as comfortable and functional as possible was extremely important, all while keeping in line with the way we have renovated every other part of the home. We did the entire project ourselves, except for installing the tub (living in a high rise building means plumbing mistakes can be huge!). We tore it down to the studs and the original concrete floor and brought it back in an industrial but modern and polished way that fits with the rest of our home. This included chipping away the tiny tiles that covered the floor and building a concrete step to accommodate plumbing that can't go under your subflooring when your floor is concrete."
Valerie also sent along a couple before photos that show the bland space as it was, but unfortunately she does not have any photos of details to show the terrible workmanship from a very unknowledgeable do-it-yourselfer.
I am in awe that Valerie and Alan did all this work themselves. The mosaic tiles are a gorgeous touch, and the colour scheme is perfectly bathroom-y and fresh. Check it out below. (More information on their remodel can be found on their blog. Great job guys! Thanks for sharing with us!)

P.S. Stay tuned for another reader's renovation later today...it's INSANE!
