Remember that bathroom remodel project I teased about oh-so-many moons ago? Well, it’s finally finished!!! And, oh my gosh, am I ever happy with it. I had my first official bubble bath a few days ago and it was heaven indeed – spa central and everything smells so new!!
Remember the before?
Well… here it is now!!!
My amazing Hubby did most of the work himself, with a tiny assist from me with the wallpaper stripping (though when I say “tiny” I mean miniscule). We also hired a bathroom refitter to install the tub and shower – which was a bit of a painful process (due to back-orders and lack of communication), but it came out nice in the end…
You probably can’t even imagine what a victory this is for me. When we first bought this house (oh some 15+ years ago), there were MANY things to love – the light, the location (quiet cul-de-sac), a “hut” out back for Hubby’s man-cave, the trees and shrubbery… Oh yes, I was in love with every little thing EXCEPT the gray tile everyplace I looked – the kitchen floor & back-splash, the bathrooms, the laundry room, a border of it ALL the way around the living room and the entire entry-way. If you know me at all, you know that I cannot abide gray! So the last 15+ years have been a slow but sure charge against the gray in my house – and this bathroom was the last little bit (you can see it a little bit under the potty in the “before” photo above).
Color and life – that’s my motto and the golden rule for my home! We have a few little re-dos and updates left, but mostly this house is now completely and totally OURS – and it would take wild horses to drag us away from it!!
