It's a penis.
LOL - If that's what you think a penis looks like, you're hanging with the wrong people.  ;)   ;D

Ciardelo, a house from the '70s will have wood trim so you'll want to try to save as much of it as you can. All new trim is plastic, which means you'll need a tack gun to install it. You can't hammer a finishing nail through the new crap without it splitting unless you drill pilot holes first. (PITA)
(FYI)  ;)


The trim was stained a dark walnut originally and then it was painted over sloppily a dark brown...so can I strip the paint off? They really don't look all that special...they don't make wood trim anymore? What? That is upsetting.  ???

Wood trim is very, very expensive. You can still get it, but expect to pay a premium.
I would sand the paint off with 400 grit or higher. You don't want to take the wood down, just remove the paint. Then you can re-stain it to match the decor of the bathroom. It's a bit more work, and can be done by hand if you don't have much trim. If you have a friend with an orbital sander, that works good. I wouldn't use a belt sander as it removes too much material. Any hard core Gear-Head will have an orbital sander.  ;)

This is the trim i bought for my house after i installed 3/4" Oak hardwood flooring

http://www.menards.com/main/doors-windows-millwork/moulding/all-unfinished-mouldings/base-moulding/5-8-x-4-x-8-ft-oak-base/p-1444433507153-c-7609.htm?tid=-3832865021375181447

That looks very nice, but I think in this small space it would be too over-powering. Do they make hardwood or faux hardwood for bathrooms?

oh i wouldn't install wood floors in a bathroom it would swell with humidity and finish would probably come off i was just pointing out the trim. I have seen interlocking flooring that looks like wood and stone not sure how well it stands up to moisture they might make some that does. But since it's not 100% water proof since it's interlocking i would try to protect the subfloor by using exterior stain to seal the wood and use some kind of underlayment like roofing tar paper. I am not a professional i just hate rotted wood so this old house might think staining the sub floor with Thompson's WaterSeal is overkill.

No, you're right. It's my main bath upstairs and once it's fixed, I want it to stay that way. I already feel I'm in for it with trying to replace the subfloor. I sure don't want to do that twice.

Good points Lukathing.
Check this:  https://www.menards.com/main/flooring-rugs/c-6512.htm?searchTermToCategory=flooring

They make a vinyl flooring with a hardwood print on it specifically for bathrooms too. Maybe ask one of the clerks at the store ?

No Menard's here in Oklahoma. We've got Sutherland's, Home Depot and Lowes. There's also some largish local chains for flooring. Looks like I'll have to actually leave my house and go talk to the 3D people.

Thanks for the help everybody :)

Summers must be warmer there than reported.

Yeah, that's the thing...it creaks and pops as it is now. I may need to replace some of it because it definitely is "squishy" underneath the linoleum in one spot. Damn but it's SO EXPENSIVE to bring in a contractor. Not to mention the hassle of having strange Mexicans roaming all about.

The floor itself is coming up on its own and appears to be just barely hanging on at the edges by the baseboards...oh yeah, the baseboards are a little fucked up too.
Short notes...

You have water damage (hence the "squishy" feeling)  I see that you are looking at a house from the 70's.  In my province (in Canada) houses in the 70's generally had wood joists with a thin wood subfloor (I have seen lots from this era with diagonally laid 3/4 X 6 inch boards) and then cheap particle board.  Your house will never make "this old house" status of a craftsman built house from the turn of the century (no offence, mine is 1973 and has the same issues.)

Tiles are not a bad thing, and now is a good time to learn (in a small space.)  First step- pull up your old floor cover (linoleum?) and see what the hell you are working with, then pull up the underlayment to get to the subfloor.  At this point, if you require a subcontractor you have saved yourself the money on demolition and taken away the uncertainty in your reno bill (they can see exactly what needs to be done.)

Now for tile... Do it right the first time because you will kick yourself if you have to redo it in a month!  Your floor will end up higher than the other room due to the thickness required from the materials.  This is one of the best sites for starting and deciding if you can actually do it yourself.  It is not difficult- but you should read a little before committing. It explains how to prepare the floor and other articles will show you how to put the tile in.  Don't skimp on screws, don't cheap out and use plywood (damn near as expensive as cement board, anyhow.)  Leave the room for the cement board to expand (I like cement board on the floor as opposed to denshield or hardie board- personal preference.)  Put thinset between the cement board and subfloor (seriously- just do it.)  This is one of the most complete websites with the best step by step instructions, a little humour and it will be done correctly.

ASBESTOS!  I almost forgot.  1970's = asbestos in your linoleum (at least there is a good possibility.)  Wear a mask and you will be fine (installers would develop problems after decades of working with it.  One project will not kill you, but take precautions.)  The asbestos in your tile or linoleum is considered "non friable" meaning that it is much safer than insulation or old brake pads or...

Anyhow, just wear a mask.  ;)

Cool! I take no offense that I live in a modest home. I'd love to have a turn-of-the-century manor, but alas, I don't. :) I think you are correct this is a good place to try my hand at a little renovation. The space is small enough to not be too big of a chore I think. Measure twice, cut once, all that. Thanks for the website!

It is floating. I see the shadow.

Must be some sort of magnetic anomaly, maybe caused by the interaction between the Martian and solar magnetic fields.

I wonder if it drops back down after dark.

I know people who live in houses from the late 1800's and early 1900's.  Unless you want to gut them and have the $$$ they are a very bad investment.  Electrical installed from a time when it was expected to burn your house down, no insulation, single pane windows, no attic insulation, foundations that seep...  I will take my 70's house over them any day.  Yeah, old houses can be nice and comfortable after you spend $150 000 renovating them- and you have something really special with great craftsmanship.  But even replacing an interior door is a chore (most were hand built and not "standard dimension.")

Anyhow, good luck.  It is a great project and the small square footage will keep the costs down even if you go with very high end products (at least the building materials.  The alcohol required should not be high end.) ;)

a friend just renovated an old river cabin for rental and needed to make it 'nice' to compete with the newer, larger built rentals but can withstand a lot of wear, water, etc. He put in this tile everywhere that looks like hardwood but was concrete or tile (right now I forget which.) I never have been a fan of polished concrete floors, though some tmes they can look nice. Upon close inspection, of course, you can tell but the look goes with the wood walls etc of the cabin but without the need to deal with as much wear and tear or cost of real wood (or worse laminate) with people coming and going, cowboy boots, wet from swimming, etc. Having to fix, sand down, restain or repoly, etc. Then saved some sg ft by getting rid of the fire-place, chimney, and hearth (it is Texas and not many want to rent a river place in winter away,) opened up the kitchen/breakfast nook to the living room, and it now "seems" a lot bigger than it is. But the floors, especially in photos, looked like wood. SOme ideas:
