    I still love that spread/curtain. It makes the whole bathroom I think.

  2. Debbie Wood on September 11, 2022 at 3:44 am

    You did great with the bathroom…..your right, laughing through it worked the best….and, its safe, you guys live each other still.
    I’d have tried storing the rolled up towels in the magazine spot..

    You’re so cute, you two.

  4. LBrobie on September 11, 2022 at 3:46 am

    wow, my 1954 house has that exact same bathroom layout and size. the only difference is the closet is outside the bathroom, but the closet space does cut into the bathroom. even the main door opens out, just like yours.

    Love this site! Reminds me of home!

  6. Maria Caseneuve on September 11, 2022 at 3:51 am

    You, two, are hillarious!

  7. MemoGrafix on September 11, 2022 at 3:51 am

    Durock is garbage. However, I found good use for it when I redone countertops in one of My house’s kitchen. I much prefer Hardie board for floors & walls.
    By the way, I love how Y’all work together with great love & pride.

    I think you would really enjoy a video that SueMe posted today about 1930s bathrooms.

  16. ls468 on September 11, 2022 at 4:05 am

    Hi Janie! Beautiful work love that color. You two are too cute. A question for you, from where did you source your tile cutter and tile?

  17. Laura on September 11, 2022 at 4:05 am

    Kevin and Laine are master restorators! The bathroom is fabulous! Its so wonderful how you just rolled with it…i would’ve been sitting on the toilet crying my eyes out. Back to the bathroom – the floor is my favorite redo of them all OH and the found tiles in the garage!!! LOVE IT! My Nana was a depression baby which is where i got my save it for a rainy day attitude about things so i was jumping up and down for you two!!! Everything is so amazing, cute and adorable 💜

  18. Mary Holdren on September 11, 2022 at 4:07 am

    You guys have so much patience to be able to handle something like that spill so positively!!! And humor to that’s always so helpful isn’t it?! In the end this bathroom is one of my favorite styles and you did it in amazing amazing amazing colors and I would probably live the rest of my life in that bathtub if I bought that house!!! Beautiful beautiful job guys and I appreciate the humor!!!!! And Lanie I make all the same kind of voices you make when you talk how different people talk it’s adorable and I’m glad I have a speak sister!!!!!

  19. Deborah Shallin on September 11, 2022 at 4:08 am

    Thank you for showing what can be done to remodel a vintage bathroom and keeping the green color. I hate it when people come into a home and completely destroy the beauty of vintage furnishings. Thanks

  20. Kaplan Design Audio & Video Solutions on September 11, 2022 at 4:08 am

    Love the accents in the floor tile beautiful job. I have tile for my bathroom redo its octagon gray and white marble. This bathroom was in addition to the back of the house built between the late 60s in the early 70s the original fire rated brick and adobe brick (interior wall structure was built in 1909! And I’m not even sure if there was a bathroom in the house I think they had an outhouse.

  21. Liana Palumbo on September 11, 2022 at 4:09 am

    That looks soooo pretty 💚💚I found an 1880 complete Victorian porcelain toilet for $25 😁 the gentleman selling didn’t know what it was and his wife had done an awful paint job on it. It’s currently sitting in my Butler’s pantry for when I restore the wet areas. I’ve collected everything for the redo at next to nothing. Looking on line here in Australia the loos can go for up to $6000😳which is INSANE!!!

  22. Sali Morton on September 11, 2022 at 4:09 am

    I do love the vintage conversion curtains! Lovely!!!!

  23. jeffrey bundy on September 11, 2022 at 4:10 am

    I hope you didn’t hurt yourself. That sounded like a back injury waiting to happen. Oh my god be careful. 😲

  24. Claire Montanaro on September 11, 2022 at 4:10 am

    That WAS painful seeing that paint splash. Turned out absolutely gorgeous.

  25. Sally Morris on September 11, 2022 at 4:10 am

    How about you just take the paint and try it on a piece of wood scrap and let it dry BEFORE you put it on the time-consuming window and door trim??? If it didn’t match then take it back and show they mixer guy and get it done over.

  26. Cori Nagy on September 11, 2022 at 4:10 am

    Beautiful bathroom!!! You two are awesome!!! 🛁

  27. jeffrey bundy on September 11, 2022 at 4:11 am

    That bathroom is beautiful BTW. Epsom salts in your pretty new bathroom when you fall down and go boom. 😏. Love you guys. ❤️❤️🦄🌈

  28. Jennifer Chelosky on September 11, 2022 at 4:11 am

    👨‍🍳 💋 Bravo 👏 🙌

  29. Vintage Black Arabians on September 11, 2022 at 4:13 am

    I wasn’t so sure at the beginning of the project, but Man oh Man….End Results….I LOVE IT! Great job on the tile and I actually think the white trim on the bathroom window was a meant to be because it just crisps it up, with the finishing touch of icing on the cake is the curtains! PERFECT! Love Love Love it. You have Great VISION. New to your channel and loving everything I’m watching. I have an old farmhouse built in 1860, I love her. Great history to her and in the process of a major exterior upgrade. You and your husband do fantastic work! Inspirational.

  30. L S1212 on September 11, 2022 at 4:13 am

    Going back through this playlist and rewatching… looking for the courage to tackle installing wall tile for the first time.

  31. Sandy Seibel Hager on September 11, 2022 at 4:15 am

    On one of my first painting experiences I had a paint matching nightmare. I bought Martha Stewart paint from KMart and misjudged how much paint I needed. So I went back to purchase another gallon. It was a standard color in their line. They had the formula for it so no matching was needed. I get home and the paint doesn’t match after drying. I went back three times and even went to another location and could not get it to match. I ended up buying two gallons and just repainting the whole room. I never bought paint from KMart again. I also never bought too little paint again.

  32. Julie Kavanaugh on September 11, 2022 at 4:16 am

    OH my gosh I just love the improvising with painting the trim white. It really made the room, the window just POP!!!

  33. CJ M on September 11, 2022 at 4:18 am

    Do y’all offer consulting services?

  34. Susan York on September 11, 2022 at 4:18 am

    🌟🌟 New subscriber here! 💖💖 I don’t remember how I found your channel, however, I have fallen in LOVE with Janie! It is an adorable bungalow!
    Laine, I know your pain when you slipped off of the side of the tub and splattered paint all over yourself and the freshly grouted tiles. I would have been laughing my tail off after crying in a corner for a minute or two.
    My husband and I have been married for 29 years as of this past November and have raised four children in a home built in 1900. I have learned so much in the nine videos that I have watched. I wish I had known a few things sooner. Hindsight is 20/20, I suppose. I love you and Kevin as a couple too. The two of you working together is simply adorable!

    Keep up the great work, and I’m going to keep watching and learning from your channel 🥰🥰

  35. LDH bees on September 11, 2022 at 4:22 am

    Amazing reno. I love the way you embraced the color and tiled up to the ceiling – lovely! The use of the tablecloth is perfect. I’d say this vintage makeover is a WIN! great job guys. Beautiful.

  36. Nancy Moore on September 11, 2022 at 4:22 am

    I love the floor tile! How fun! Love the way you two work together

  37. OnTheRoadHome MyHomeInHeaven on September 11, 2022 at 4:24 am

    It is beautiful. I would say the green in the kitchen is more like a mint at least from only being able to see through the video and the bathroom is similar. But, beautiful none the less and the tile work Laine, is awesome. You did a great job and the floor tiles very nice and imaginative. Great job!!!😊😊

  38. OMG! on September 11, 2022 at 4:25 am

    Cute couple!

  47. Bayley Courtland on September 11, 2022 at 4:35 am

    So happy to find this channel! I see too many people destroying such beautiful homes for new and modern looks, it makes me so sad. But when seeing this, this is amazing! You made it look so authentic. Is this something I could do for the first time? I’ve never worked with tile (neither wall or floor) but I’m so interested! 🙂
    Amazing job! Thank you for sharing!!

  48. Justina Novak on September 11, 2022 at 4:36 am

    So amazingly great you weren’t seriously hurt in the fall. Absolutely love your custom pattern in the floor!

  49. Margaret Lee-Reed on September 11, 2022 at 4:38 am

    Oh man … hate when that happens. Glad you could laugh.
    Gorgeous job guys.

  50. Jay6459 on September 11, 2022 at 4:39 am

    Nice job. Love the color scheme, floor pattern & love that you kept that vintage sink!
