When we bought our home a few months ago I knew there were two projects that needed tackling. And quick! The bathroom and the kitchen.
The bathroom was fully carpeted. Carpet in a bathroom and a house full of boys DO NOT belong together.
We pulled the washer/dryer out of there together. Then I pulled out the cabinet that was to the right of the sink.
I told Lineman I wanted some really neat, old looking fixtures. He found these while working out of town (because there is not much in the way of stores here).
He even found all the matching pieces to coordinate. Yes, my toilet paper is folded into a point. My mom ran a bed and breakfast for 15 years, I guess some things wear off. Toilet paper holder had been a built in unit so I yanked it out and did a bit of sheet rock work to fix the hole there.
I added some eucalyptus in a glass jar for some dimension.
Added a little more depth with the grass.
I found a light fixture that fit the look I was going for.
Then for the big project. Remember I drove all the way to my in-laws near Great Falls, 4 and a half hours away so I could get to a Home Depot. I picked up tile and all the tools needed to get the job done.
I had lots of fun tiling. It’s not too hard but it does take days to get it done. I also painted the vanity “beautiful brown eyes” and I changed out the knobs and handles. The shower curtain is one I made a few years ago that matched pretty good.
And Taaa Daaaa, the (almost) finished project. I have to say I am very proud of myself for accomplishing this. I just need to add some art to the walls and add some open shelves and a bench where the washer/dryer were at.
One more look at the “BEFORE” ……..
And the “AFTER”
