It's fitting to reveal the bathroom today. After all, we tore this thing apart a year ago this week. I would like to remind you where we started:
The sink area. Cabinet doors falling off their hinges, and inside, it was just nasty. Opening up that medicine cabinet door revealed rusty grossness. The lighting fixtures were too old-fashioned. Oh, and the sink was blue.
The wallpaper was a weird blue cloud print. And it was peeling. And there was a silly fish border around the top. The window was a dusty old mid-century addition that was sub-par. The radiator was exposed.
The bathtub and toilet were blue. The inside of the tub was that cheap acrylic stuff. The floor was dated and old.
We replaced EVERYTHING. New tub, toilet and sink, subway tile in the tub, new sub-floor, new marble tile on the floor. New walls, new electric and wiring in the walls, new paint and lighting fixtures. New window to match the house.
I've always wanted an all white bathroom. And the style suited our 1920s house. All in all I think we ended up with the bathroom of our dreams:
It took a lot of time. We lived with only the bare necessities for months.
But I can happily say after a year, I would do it the same way again.
