From Drab to Fab So Far!!

Happy Thursday!!
Here is a bathroom remodel update!!
It started with 1982 tile and fixtures. One daughter going to college, and getting married.

Now it's my turn! We had blah white tile, and very old fixtures, an old shower door, and the original toilet. YUCK!!!Old window!! We have replaced all of the others in the house.Corroded fixture!! Yuck again!
Progress after tile removal!
Built in niche for shampoo etc.
New window with rain glass, new tile and fixtures. Yay!!

Pretty new toilet.

We are also doing our vanity over. I will show pictures soon. I am going to paint and decorate.
I will have more updates next week. Very happy so far. The faux paint will be going away!
It's a mess around here, but so worth it.
Have a great evening!
Chat again soon!

What a BEAUTIFUL job! I love the bronze fixtures too. I wish I could afford them for my home. Have fun decorating. And nice toilet too!

We'll be doing something similar sometime this year or next. I like the earthy tiles and trim. I want to do something similar. And the most important improvement- I want a toilet than can't run all the time! I'm so tired of trying to fix the little chain thing and taking the back of the tank off to tix it. ARGH!

Very very nice! I love the tile work in the bathroom. It's gorgeous. Oh, isn't it nice? I have a similar design in my condo's shower. It was so nice to get a change from all that 80's muck! LOL!

I never thought I'd type this phrase, but that is one gorgeous toilet. :)

And I'm in love with the shampoo niche!

Looks wonderful, did you do the tile yourselves? Be sure to seal it.
Can't wait to see it when it's finished. I know it's hard living with the mess but it will be so worth it.
