Finally....here are some photos of the infamous "Bathroom Re-do" that we just completed here in our home.
Sorry it's taken me so long but we've had a lot of "Drama" here in our household....so it's not exactly been up there on the top my list of things to do to take these photos. HA!
These are ESPECIALLY for my sister Jennifer who has NEVER been to my home.....hummm.
HA! HA!!I told her I was going to write that! She needs to bring her family down here for a VISIT. We always go North to see them.
~~~~~Here we go~~~~~
These are some "BEFORE SHOTS".......ugh
Don't you love that old funky early 1970's WALLPAPER that we found behind the mirror that was over the vanity??
As you can see.....my husband took the old walls down to the "studs" by gutting the entire bathroom.
Getting the new counter top and vanity in now....
Now there is a new tub and shower in white.....the old one was a "marbleized GREEN." I didn't take a photo of inside the tub because I didn't want you to see what kind of shampoo my kids use. HA!
Actually to me....a tub is a tub and it looks very nice, so lets move on to the GOOOOOD stuff.
A new paint color which is a very nice shade of "green"....new ceramic tiled floors which are a "antique green/brown shade" and we stained the grout with "TEA" to get it to the color we wanted. Great brainstorm that I had...the grout was too light and we had to do something. It worked perfect and then we sealed it and it looks fabulous.
New sink......new tan and white and black fleck granite counter top....a new
"taller" vanity which is an "antique white with a chocolate glaze over it"....new toilet....new mirror above the vanity.
A new print on the wall, yes it's that "Eiffel Tower".....new shower curtain, hung with "Fluer Des Leis" hooks, new accessories everywhere.
Everything is fresh and new and clean. YAHOOO!!!
We have to put the towel rack up yet and I will put one more print or piece of artwork on the wall.....I've looked and looked in a bi-zillion antique stores and regular stores and just about everywhere....and nothing that was "resonably priced" has hit me! HA!
So I will WAIT until that happens.
I am so glad this project is over and now...it's on to the wretched kitchen. We already have the cabinets purchased and they have been "waiting in the wings"...so this will be happening fairly soon. Maybe. HA! It depends on how life goes around here.
We have graduation for our youngest son in a couple weeks so I think we will wait until that is over at least.
Oh then we are taking Miss Priss to go look at a college over in Texas.
Then we will be into "hurricane season" and I always dread that...."just incase."
Been there and done that a few times now. Blah!
There you have it......we are THANKFUL this is done and I am especially thankful and grateful to have such a talented husband.
He's the BEST!!!
I'm not kidding....this man can do anything.
I am SO BLESSED!
