It has been eight weeks in the making. We are 97% done. and there were many set backs and challenges along the way. We still need a mirror, shower door, picture above the towel bar, two drawer fronts on the bath cabinet, hook for towels outside the shower, and a TV. Yes, this new bathroom is going to have a TV. My father-in-law was rather put off by the whole idea. No, I don’t need a TV in the bathroom, but sometimes I do things because I can.
Andrew finally gave me permission to stand back and smile, and then he said, “I don’t think we deserve to have a bathroom this nice.” To that I said, “Well, maybe you don’t but I do!”
We did 95% of the work ourselves. We did everything besides mill the fixtures and cast the porcelain/fiberglass. Andrew made beautiful cabinets (I helped), and it was my design. Some of my design features he rolled his eyes at, but I think I finally got my Zen I have been looking for.Â Drum roll please.
Let me remind you of what it started out like:
Ewh… carpet…pink curtains and a tub/shower I had to sit down in… Lots of storage though!
Here is the same view I have been showing you all along… I am standing in the doorway. It is the same place as the photo above. Yes, it is hard to believe that is the same bathroom! Let’s take a closer look:
Yes, relax… something I can do now that it is almost done!
What bathroom would be complete without it?
The light isn’t the greatest in this photo since I am trying to take a picture of light.Â
Miney has taken a liking to the tile… it is nice and cool for her to lay on. That and she is waiting for me to be done taking pictures. This photo is taken standing next to the shower/toilet looking toward the door.
