Bathroom Reno Installment #2 continued...

continuing on from the previous post... With the help of my good friend N this morning, we did the final filling, sanding and two coats of stain block/sealer.  Which got us to this point (see pic below) which is a far far cry from the original bathroom (scroll down further for 'original' bathroom pics)...

And then after the required time, I put the first coat of paint on!  woot woot! So just reminding myself of how far it's come, we have gone from this original bathroom:

Reno Installment #1  (basin, mirror, cupboard) from this:

to this picture below

to the last couple of weeks (on and off) work, culminated in this from today - first coat of paint on~!
Reno Installment #2 first stage

And just for fun, side by side:


To this, at this stage.  Next plan, second coat of paint and the wet area siliconing.
UPDATE: finished.  I went to bed at 3am but I got it finished *grin*.  I did all the cleaning up of brushes and roller and silicone last night so this morning, I put the print back up, put in the towels and hey, I had a shower in the 'new' bathroom!

So there's a few bits to touch up and then the bathroom gets a rest for a while, while I save up for the 3 part 'tile n tub' paint... the brown floor will just have to stay but the door trims and the door will be white eventually...we'll see what the budget says.  But hey, it's a vast improvement and I'm happy with it.  It's not perfect, not by any means but I knew it wouldn't be.  It's fresh though, and clean and makes me smile that it's something completed that will still be there tomorrow!
