Bathroom Update!

Remember this before picture?
It got worse before it got better!
But now it’s better.

Since this was not planned we had to do all the work ourselves and it has been a long, hard road to tow. We are truly starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Considering we had to take this bathroom down to the studs when we had to rip out the mold infested drywall, this room has come a long way.

This upcoming week hubby will be finishing the trim (he already has the baseboards and floor 1/4 round in since I took the pictures) and the grates (attic and exhaust fan) for the new ceiling and then we’ll give it a final coat of paint. Other than removing the old claw foot tub and changing it to the corner shower we tried to keep it in character for the age of the house by using the bead board, decorative ceiling tiles and old fashioned rounded sink.

We used Laura Ashley laminate flooring in “oiled teakwood” and on sale it worked out to be less expensive and better quality, made in the USA, than the other options – most of a lesser quality and made in China.

I am so in love with the triple pane window that replaced the “ORIGINAL” single pane window. This room is now a warm little haven – just needs a TV & Frig! LOL
