The end is near. I see a light at the end of the tunnel. It's so close I can almost taste it.
My bathroom has walls.
You have no idea what a big deal this is for me right now. Thanks to Hurricane Isaac, my contractor got pulled down south for his day job, and our project was on hold for about a week and a half. However, now he tells me that I should have my paint colors finalized this week because he's painting Saturday! Hooray!
So, in anticipation of my beautiful new bathroom, let's take a look at what once was.
The entrance. Note the ivy green and light pink color combo. Gawg-eous.
Ah, the sink. The prize of the bathroom. Please, admire the flowers.
A close-up shot, just in case you weren't positive that these were actual flowers painted in the sink. YEP. Let's remember, too, the house was built in 1969.
And what house built before 1990 would be complete without a soap holder and toothbrush holder that does not hold any toothbrush (minus a travel-sized one) made today?
I actually like the toilet. It's been replaced in the last 5 years, so we're keeping it. And the trash can. Maybe. It actually may not "go" with the new bathroom decor.
We're also keeping the blinds. However, that weirdly-positioned towel rack is G-O-N-E.
Floor is staying, too. Mainly because this project is already bleeding us dry, and I can live with the floor.
Oh, and the tub. My PINK tub. PINK. Here's the crazy thing, guys. When the walls came down, our contractor discovered a Coke can that expired this year in the wall. Therefore, we estimated that this bathroom has been renovated in the last ten years.
IN THE LAST TEN YEARS, SOMEONE THOUGHT THAT PINK TILE ROCKED.
I wish they had called me first...
And here's what my bathroom looks like now. I'm ridiculously excited to have sheet rock up. When our contractor put it up, I might have danced a jig.
Oh, yes, and I have a bath tub in the middle of my living room. Seriously. I kind of wish it were out of the box, because, frankly, I'd be lying in it with a bunch of pillows and blankets.
Okay, so out with the old and in with the new! My sink came in last week, and I, ahem, finally opened it today because I was trying to match it with the tile for the vanity.
Look at that beautiful bowl! Sniff. I love it so much.
Thoughts on the tile? The bathroom colors are basically light brown and dark brown with a white border separating the two. I thought a whitish-brown tile would go well with the color scheme, but I'd love some input, especially since it's going in this week!
