Today’s the day! WAHOO! Yes, I’m excited and yes, I can show you the final product of all our work in our one and only bathroom.
Now, for those of you just stopping in, I’d like to take a minute to catch you up to speed. My family and I are remodeling our house (again) and our latest project was our master bedroom, and sort of at the same time our soon-to-be farmhouse bathroom over the last year (while also having babies and a grand ol’ time).
When we bought our home in 2003, this is what the bathroom looked like. In case you’re wondering, this is a scanned and uploaded photo, so you could get the full effect. Now I am really dating myself. ahem.
Cast iron green bathtub with matching green commode, glass shower doors, 3″ creamy white square tiles on the bottom and 1″ white with gold square tiles on top. Berber carpet on the floor, clear corrugated plexiglass type drop ceiling, an indoor/outdoor light complete with outlet attached, and a single mirrored medicine cabinet. Oh yeah, total room for improvement.
First makeover included painting upper tiles dark maroon and the ceiling panels and grids white, added green floor tile, plus mirror and light fixtures, and took out the shower doors.
Second makeover, yanked out the tub and toilet for new fiberglass tub with surround, and put in new floor tile. (another uber old scanned picture)
It wasn’t until a couple years later I painted the upper tile a soft green and changed up the decor. This picture shows after we already tore down the ceiling and getting into gutting it from top to bottom.
Third times a charm, right? tsk.
Well, this time was for good because we needed to replace that window and we wanted a clean start, a GIGANTIC do over. All the details about the start of our project, including how we got a massively heavy tub in there are here, and the latest upgrades are all here. Take a minute and catch up…it’s a good read.
Are you ready? We are!!
