When we bought our new house 3 years ago, it was a beautiful Cape Cod style house and only needed updating. The carpet was burgundy and there was burgundy paint throughout along with all types of wallpaper and brass accents everywhere. We re-did this bathroom while I was pregnant with Ruby (before I was layed off!). It only had 1 sink and a door that separated the bath area from the sink area. This would have been a nightmare getting 4 kids through here in the mornings, so we decided to do a super kid friendly remodel, durable clean and more open. We tiled 3/4 of the way up the walls and I think we put 3 sub floor sealers for water in case they ever flooded it! I think it turned out really great. Sorry about the quality of the photos, the before shot was how it looked before we moved in when the old owners were still here.
