Main Bathroom

Here is another update...figured I ought to get on it since we are moving in this weekend....WAHOO! So this is the main bathroom...really the main bathroom because the only other one in the house is in the master bedroom.

BEFORE floors (hideous)

AFTER floors (beautiful tile work...done by me...if I do say so myself)
(we go the pedestal sink from craigslist in Boise (thank you D.T.) for only $10. Lovin' it!

And for your enjoyment...a little decor. Those are brown towels if you can't tell from the picture.

This is the view BEFORE, that you get of the bathroom as you walk into the house.

And this is the AFTER view

And then just a few pics of us working on that hideous bathroom that is just gorgeous now. Totally patting ourselves on the back...can you tell. Carl probably trying to give me instructions....hey buddy, I am a pro (hee hee hee)

Nasty, disgusting old tub BEFORE
Beautiful, new tub AFTER (well IN BETWEEN stage)
Carl redid most of the plumbing (with help from J and J, thank you)
Cutting into the lathe (sp?) and plaster to fit the tub and other such troubleshooting.

Crazy how one UGLY thing can become something quite cute and enjoyable...yes even a bathroom.

I love the tile the best, I think. And the new sink. And the new light fixture... and, and, and. :) It looks fantastic, and I definitely think bathrooms can be cute and wonderful! Way to prove that right! GREAT job!

PS. My word verification is "propot" -- sounds like a political stance to me! ;) (Pro Pot) ha.

Wow - that looks awesome! Did you do EVERYTHING on your own? Very impressive. Right up Neil's alley. I'll have to show him this blog.

After seeing just that small bathroom I am exhausted. I can't believe you did a whole house! Good job. Sooooooooooooo much work.

I am so inspired by all the work you've put into your beautiful home! And now you get to enjoy the fruits of your labors. Way to go!

You are just the perfect person for this kind of job. It looks amazing. I hope that living with your parents has turned out to be very advantageous, as I can imagine you need a lot of babysitters and home-cooked meals when you are so busy!
