We’re helping a young family bring new life to a dark, dated bathroom — and peace to their two daughters who use it.

The house is home to Ally, David and their three children, Mary Catherine, Anna and Joseph. Much of the house has been updated, but the guest bathroom is straight out of the ‘80s.

David and Ally’s bathroom was functional, but not very inviting, and it felt like it was lost in time.

The Projects

•Remove existing vanity and cabinet
•Replumb for two sinks
•Install new ceramic floor over the existing floor
•Install new base and crown molding
•Install new vanity
•Replace exhaust fan
•Rewire for two lights
•Paint walls, cabinet, doors, trim and ceiling
•Install Fluidmaster in the toilet
•Install new faucets
•Install new light fixtures

We’re going to remove this massive floor-to-ceiling cabinet (at left) so we can install a new vanity with two sinks.

Remove existing vanity and cabinet


This cabinet is so massive, getting it out of the house is a project in itself!

Next, we remove the old single vanity, so we can replace it with a double one. (Keep clicking for a look at the new vanity, in the “after” photo)

Virtu USA’s Talisa 60-inch Double Sink Bathroom Vanity features solid wood construction, two doors with concealed soft-close hinges, four functional drawers on full extension soft-close glides, designer brass knobs, and a factory assembled base cabinet for an easy installation.

Chelsea and Ally then move outside to prep and paint the old cabinet doors from the bathroom’s built-in storage.
