Have you ever run out of money?
or time? or both?
This little bathroom was going to be our last
whatever project and it was going to be a big one!
It's so out of date and so tiny, yet a full bath
It's very masculine and kind of looks like a library
featuring a nice brown bathtub
and an equally lovely brown sink
believe it or not...the shower is wonderful...nice and large with great tile!
It kind of scares me to walk in here and I promise..if and when we have company or parties, it's much cleaner than this. Right now we use it to wash our paint brushes and store our river rocks
The plan was to tackle it in August
well, well, well
we are just this weekend laying the marble in our master bath
The tub is coming out and a new sink will go there
This sink will be the doorway into the nearby bedroom so it that can be a suite
and the existing doorway will be closed off to allow more room for the shower area
I don't like carpet in a bath, but when we got new carpet in the rest of the house, there was enough to cover the dreadful floor
Since it will only be a guest bath
I'm taking the doors off and this will be filled with spa sundries
When people came in this bath when we first bought 822...everyone
and I mean EVERYONE commented on the cool counter top
the ironic thing is that in the upstairs bathroom we actually
CHOSE it...just in a neutral color and I do love it!
So...back to the money/time thing
since we are not going to get this little bathroom tackled by
I just can't stand it any longer and am going to spend the weekend
making it be the best it can be for about
$200 or LESS
The very first thing we did is put in a new window
These panes were a mis-measure and we decided to use them here..they fit just right
funny....one got broken in the garage and the day we were going to install them...they fell off the AC unit and another one broke...so there's only one original pane and by this time we could have had one single piece of glass...and I used my left over grasscloth on the inside...see how thick this old rock house is...
and the chandy? Well...stay tuned...this ugly little bath is about to come alive!
