Catching Up - Bathroom Renovation

It was 95% done and completely functional by last Thanksgiving (thanks, Tim!), but we didn't put on the finishing touches until our party last Friday. So without further delay, I present: The Downstairs Bathroom Project - Before, During, and After.



Our friend Tim completely dismantled and rebuilt our lower bathroom last fall. Goodbye old fixtures, cracked tiles, rusty pipes, ugly crusty dirt and grime, and torn up door. Hello marble tile, custom built shower stall, low-flow toilet, built-in shelves, wainscoting, and pedestal sink. Much nicer!

Low flow toilet? And here I thought the cats were bad... :P

Well, we do have a water situation in these parts...

But seriously, that low flow toilet is the best one in the house. Works great!

Wow! What a transformation. Bet you are glad you can breathe easier after the test and enjoy things again! Wish I could have seen you last weekend but had other obligations. I love catching up on your life with your blog :)

Everything looks great but I really, REALLY loved the shower floor tile! Beautiful!

Holy crap, right down to the studs. It's beautiful, but I can't imagine why you wanted to get rid of that door. ;-)

Shelli - missed ya! Call us when you are in town.

Jeni - Thanks. We really liked that tile mosaic.

Kat - yup. Same thing we did with our kitchen. Scrap it all and start over! The cats had a little something to do with the condition of that door...

I FINALLY get to see it, LOL, been killing me for a month to see this!!!! Irony is I looked at that same light fixture at home depot about the time you posted this orginally! LOL. We got taste. I am not sure what I like the best out of the job,, but the shower floor rocks!

Tim did a great job - it all looks so beautiful. We only did the paint job (plus picking everything out). Would you believe that pretty mosaic shower floor cost more than the marble floor in the rest of the room? It's true. I was surprised by that. But we got a really good deal on the marble.
