Awful ceramic tile, the color of concrete.
Completely covered in plastic, even on the ceiling. Dark icky shower...
No door! (We had ripped this off when installing the hardwood floors about a year ago).
And here is the after....
When you open the door (a door!!) you see the new shower wall instead of an ugly shower curtain.This is a print from Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, before they move and are sharing one bathroom. Besides for being a favorite movie, thought this was pretty perfect for David and I.
David hung prints from my garden over the toilet. A lot of these were posted on this blog at some point or another...The large photo is Abraham Darby. He looks great in photos.
I mean, if you have to find a holder for your cotton pads, why not something Tiffany?
We love our simple new sink and put all of the junk that was on the sink into the medicine cabinet. That's a blown glass soap holder with a plastic top. With our hard water situation, metal tops and soap dispensers get absolutely gross. We decided against the shelf above the faucet. Basket from my mom holds our towels now.
One of the very best things...David added a light in the shower. Heaven!
And, we got rid of that old 3 faucet shower system. How did we ever live with that? What a pain. Every time someone would flush, the shower would get cold. Not anymore!
It's bright and clean but very functional. The Silver Fox paint by Ben Moore mixed with the Deep In Thought cream is great and not as stark as grey and white would be. We added in the Pottery Barn storage unit and I like my little no-sew drape on the window. It lets in a little light at the top while still staying private.
So very worth it in the end. David made it look just the way I had it in my head!
