Bathroom Redo - Part One

The main and only full bathroom is next on the project list. It has been a room we have been thinking about tackling for a while now. Unfortunately, it is not an easy room to deal with. As you can see, it is on the small side, especially for a family of five. We have been trying to figure out how to create more storage space for personal toiletries as well as toilet paper, tissues and cleaning supplies.
We were hoping to put a built in shelf on the back wall. Unfortunately when my husband cut through the wall we discovered an old roof line right were the shelf was to go. Oh well, back to the drawing board. We would be open to storage solutions if you have any to share.
As you can see the floor also is in dire need of work. The linoleum is tearing at the threshold and pulling up along the tub. We are going to put in a laminate wood floor that matches the original, antique pine in the rest of the house.

Work begins stripping paint off the solid panel doors. The paint is coming off easier than we expected. The doors underneath a beautiful. We plan to do the other door up stairs soon.

Doug has been working on the drywall, repairing the hole he cut for the built in shelf that didn't work out, as well as the holes from the old towel bars and some other minor bumps and bruises. Hopefully the last coat of that is dry and we are ready to start painting later tonight.

Hopefully part two of this bathroom redo wont be too long coming. I so dislike projects that seem to linger on and on.
