Here is our lovely guest bathroom before we really started ripping stuff out. You can see that Tim has taken off the formica back splash that was glued onto the wall. We were getting new flooring put in the house and figured it would be best to remodel the bathroom now.
When we bought the house 5 years ago we knew we'd need to replace the flooring fairly soon because the carpet that was in there was super cheap and incredibly worn for being only two years old at the time. It was one of those things though that we kept putting off due to finances until it was just something we couldn't overlook anymore.
