I thought it might be fun to share pics of our renos/upgrades/weekend projects :D Or share your future project plans in your new home.

Let me start with our latest project that we just finished few days ago - our powder room makeover :cool:

What a great thread!

Look gorgeous, Patrob! I love that sink!

That's awesome. I love the wainscot look.

How much did the MDF material for the trimwork cost?

I have been planning on doing a coffered ceiling aka waffle ceiling in our library. Not sure when I'll get around to doing it though.

The MDF panel 4x8' was less than $30 (at Rona, HD had much lower quality of MDF). That did not include the cost of new 8" baseboards & moulding for the top. We are planning to do the wainscoting throughout the main floor, but lower height in the hallways & the waffle ceiling in the office too eventually :D

The next project will be plaster crown mouldings & finally our hardwood floors :rolleyes:

:D Good eye ;) The vanity cost me $1,0xx with everything & they even gave me the mirror by mistake (free):D The toilet is a Toto - Soiree & not from DB, they don't carry Toto but I paid $600, which is not bad for a Toto top of the line 1 piece elongated toilet :cool: www.totousa.com/productpage.asp?PID=881

It actually cost me less than an equivalent Kohler that I was supposed to get, I figured Toto is supposed to be the best, so I will try it plus I just loved the look of it.

Looks like it was done by someone who commonly does mitres and uses a nailer :)

You think http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/gr...smiley-003.gif Yes, my husband gets a thrill when he does stuff like this http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/la...smiley-016.gif
He can probably do the mitre cuts with his eyes closed http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/gr...smiley-047.gif

www.art-bathe.com/Bathroom-Furniture.html They have some nice vanities & they all come complete with sinks, faucets & counters, all in one shot :D You can switch to diff. sink style or a diff. faucet if you don't like the one it comes with.

Builder will be providing cabinets, swing doors on shower and whiteish grey ceramic towels. We are adding new faucets, light fixtures, mirrors, undermount sinks, granite counters, robehooks/towel racks, paint, and mosaic tile border to our ensuite.

Cool stuff, will look great :) Thanks for sharing.

Once it's all done, post real pics :D
