update! a few readers commented that the photos were gone. no idea how that happened – could have been hijacked or hotlinked. anyways, i’ve uploaded them again. and sorry, if this appears as a repeat post on your rss feed.
i like bathroom makeovers and here is a fantastic one from philip, featuring the ikea kitchen countertop, pronomen.
for slightly more than the price of a good sheet of plywood the pronomen is a wonderful product to base a design on. total investment with 2 countertops and the bath surround was 4 pieces, around $300.
the bath surround and supports were constructed with a frame of pressure treated 2x4s. the pronomen was then cut and mounted to this frame which simplified things somewhat. the man breaking out the old tub is jose, a salvadorian. he did all the construction work including the very confusing angle and corner cuts! he got very excited about the project and added some very nice, slightly turned edges.
