A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was finishing a quilt while watching Husband work away on the bathroom remodel. Well, the bathroom is about 99% finished and I was able to shower in it this week.
So, here is part of the story. We moved into this house approximately 10 years ago. It had been vacant for two years and suffered damage both before and during the vacancy that made it understandable that it hadn’t sold. We needed to move and were looking for a house and Husband came home one day and said, “I think I have found the house, and I think you are going to hate me.”
When I saw the place–ugly, filthy dirty, broken, smelly–I knew what he meant. It was truly horrible, but as soon as I walked in, it felt like home. I wasn’t happy, but I was home.
We have worked and worked on it through the years. There are a few big things left, like the kitchen, and a few that are ready for updating, like the paint. But, starting just before Christmas it was time for the bathroom. It is a really long process, but I will try to sum up and let pictures do the talking.
No real “before” picture, but here are some “during” pictures:
And, the after:
It is a really small room and hard to get pictures of, but, trust me, it is beautiful! It has a few minor paint touch ups, and the switch plate cover–stuff like that–but, overall, I am so pleased and excited I can hardly stand myself.
I am such a spoiled woman!
ps–In case you didn’t notice, the tile in the shower is leftover bits and pieces we gathered up over time. They don’t match, exactly, but they are artfully arranged. I told Husband if anyone ever questions the shower just say, “A quilter lives here.”
