Guest Bathroom Remodel: Part 1

This guest bathroom remodel has been a long time coming. I originally started removing the horrible wallpaper back around thanksgiving.  Then we were side-tracked by the holidays. I found a painter through Coach's dad but he ended up flaking out on us and by the time we called the new guy, fixed the electrical snaffu with the vanity lighting, and finished the paper removal he already had another job lined up.  So it's just now been textured and painted.  After living with this horrible paper for 2 and a half years, the bathroom looks so amazingly different it's shocking.  I want to paint the cabinets white, but at least now it's not a construction zone.

So Part 1 entailed getting the wallpaper off and then having the walls textured and painted.  And when you always have a "helper" it takes longer than expected:
my helper

And After:

the beautiful white doors and trim. *sigh*
This is probably the most accurate representation of the wall color
Overall, so excited to get it finished in a few weeks.  Although we'll be living out of this bathroom until it's all done.  We've got to rip carpet out and demo the shower in our master bath this weekend so Coach has enough time to get the plumbing changed then get cement board up and paint it with this rubber/glue stuff that is like the holy grail of water barriers.  Installers come the 11th and it should take a week.  Fingers crossed it's done for Lloyd's party.  Ugh. Will our house never be under construction right before a party?
