Bathroom Ideas Old House

They started working on their guest bathroom knowing that they wanted to incorporate their favorite wallpaper — a print from the Hygge & West line by Rifle Paper Co. — but it was pricey. Luckily, Curry found the exact pattern being sold for a fraction of the price on eBay. Once they found the wallpaper, they tried to save more cash by installing it themselves, but quickly realized that this wasn't the right place to cut corners.

"We soon realized we had no clue what we were doing — we tried our best but the pattern was too intricate," Cook said. "So we called every wallpaper person in the phone book and came across an incredible woman who swooped in to finish the job."

But Curry and Cook put in their share of elbow grease: They pulled up six layers of old flooring that had been layered on top of the original pine themselves. In total, they removed more than 2 inches worth of old flooring, which left them with an unexpected problem: the need to lower the molding.

"We couldn’t be happier with the bathroom or the way that life turned out for Brandon and I," Cook said. Courtesy Jenna Cook

"The molding wasn’t salvageable unfortunately," said Cook. "So we had custom molding made to mimic everything else in the house."

Oh, and that great vanity? Cook found it on Home Depot's website. From there, the couple installed a new window, LED lights and completed the look of the vanity with cute baskets for storage at Lowe's. The total cost of the renovation came out to around $3,000.

"Truly, we created our dream home," said Cook. "We can’t wait to enjoy it with each other for the rest of our lives."
