Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of what the bathroom looked like before we tore it all out. It was atrocious and embarrassingly ugly. Even if I had pics I probably wouldn't post them. But imagine, if you will, a tiny little bathroom with ugly old 70's era yellow square design linoleum with gouges and stains. In the corner squished between the toilet and the wall and directly behind the swing of the door when you come in is the shortest fake honey oak sink vanity that you've ever seen with a seashell sink and a bright fake gold two handled faucet. Just above that RV style vanity was a honey oak medicine cabinet that stuck out way too far for such a small space. All of this was topped off with an oak 3 light fixture with gold accents: ugly.
Now our master bathroom looks like this:
We have new flooring. Yes, it is vinyl tile that looks like wood planks. Yes, I know that is a little cheesy but I was thinking practicality and economy. And I love it!
I really like the new floor heating vent cover that Dave found. It is brushed nickel to go with the other accoutrement in the room like the faucet, light, towel loop, TP holder and robe hooks.
I am especially proud of the moulding I installed around the floor. I cut and joined and filled and painted all by my very lonesome. The color of the walls is Brass Tack and I used Wal Mart paint, of course. (I have used Wal Mart paint for years and it has been wonderful. Even my red in my kitchen is Wal Mart and went on in two coats.)
The beautiful new vanity with a rounded split front. The interior has a drawer perfect for hiding personal items. The wood is cherry and is topped by a beautiful porcelain sink and a simple brushed nickel faucet. These were all purchased at Lowe's. We bought it at Christmas time and it was $248. This week it went on sale for $169 so Dave took back the receipt and they refunded us the difference with which he purchased more home improvement stuff. The mirror on the wall was harvested from the downstairs bathroom because the first one I got didn't fit. The first one now lives in the downstairs bathroom.
How do you like it? Does it make you want to buy my house?!
