Proudest DIY

“My favorite DIY was renovating the bathroom in my old home. This involved removing the existing flooring, walls, ceiling, toilet, sink, and vanity. I was able to use the existing bathtub, but I updated everything else from floor to ceiling. The finished product had new tile floors with dark grout lines, white tiled walls, a smooth white ceiling, a new low-flow toilet, a black vanity with a rectangular white sink, and a chrome faucet.”
