I’ve revealed Flip 5. I’ve revealed that I’ve sold Flip 3. But you know what I totally forgot to reveal? The green bathroom after its remodel! The green bathroom was a loooong process to remodel that started well before I even purchased Flip 4, and it didn’t end until right before I listed Flip 3. While I was knee-deep in Flip 4, I pretty much stopped all work on the bathroom.
To get caught up, you can see how I busted up the existing the floors, added backer board, cut the tile for the floor, laid the tile, grouted the tile, and finally finished the floor! I also convereted the single sink vanity into a dual sink vanity. Then I swapped out the old countertops for new ones. My last little projects were to create a DIY towel holder and swap out shower heads.
I kept the original vintage mint green tile on the walls. I love keeping original character when I can. I even kept the original vanity cabinet, but I swapped out hardware for new hardware with a vintage design. I found the perfect gray for the walls and added my vintage Florida gallery wall.
I got lucky with the sinks. I scored two for $20 off a Facebook trade site. I had my plumber hook up the sinks and the new faucets that look vintage. I think I got the faucets at Home Depot, but I couldn’t find a link to them to share with you.
I didn’t want to just get a standard faucet, so that’s why I loved this one. It looks old and vintage to align with the throwback charm of this bathroom.
My last little accent were these amazing light fixtures! I found these at a local thrift store for $4 each. I loved the midcentury design to them…and it didn’t hurt that it reminded me of Golden Girls. I swapped out the semi-working long fluorescent light and hung these lights flush against the wall.
Once I had all the projects finished, it was time to list the property. I spent over a year without any working faucet in this bathroom, and had two working ones just long enough to list the house! What I love about the finished product is that it looks almost original. I stayed true to the character & era of the home.
All in all, I think I spent less than $2,000 on this space. The bathroom now has a new toilet, new faucets, newer sinks, new countertops, new hardware, and new shower head. It still has several original elements.
