The second major project of Chelsea’s Ranch Revival was to renovate the hall bathroom. Listen to this special podcast to learn about the projects we tackled and find some inspiration for your own bathroom renovation!
Demolition and Wall Expansion
Chelsea’s bathroom was a gut job from the get-go. The entire space was blue from top-to-bottom — blue ceramic tile, flooring and even the bathtub.
It was a tight space as well to get in and out of before the renovation. So we gutted the entire thing and expanded the entryway into the hallway.
Removing the tile proved to be a bigger challenge than we thought — we almost had to break out the jackhammer!
After we filled many 5-gallon buckets with debris and dumped them into the Dumpster below the hall bathroom window outside, we finally began to make the space more functional.
A New Vanity
The vanity in Chelsea’s hall bathroom before had a single sink and that was impractical for her three small children.
Now Chelsea’s kids and guests won’t be fighting over the sink!
Installing the Wetwall
Instead of painting the walls, Chelsea decided to go for a wall panel system around the entire space.
The new paneling is from Wetwall, a Wilsonart Company, and is completely waterproof and scratch/scuff resistant.
It’s built to resist moisture and is easy to install. The sealant that is provided worked fantastically for Chelsea’s 8-foot panel that looks like natural stone.

Adding Retro Flair with Penny Tile
Chelsea’s house was built in the 1950s and she wanted to incorporate that into her home. So she added penny tiles to pay tribute to her mid-century home!
They were so easy to install and didn’t have to use a wet saw to do it.
