Some bathroom pictures!

I'm so happy! The tile is all done in the bathroom (after we let the grout dry until tomorrow night), the bathtub faucet is in (although the plumbers ordered the wrong finish - we're deciding whether to live with it or not - it looks beautiful, but it doesn't match the other stuff we picked out). We've been in our house for five years now, and it feels really nice to finally have the bathroom we wanted. We still have another week or so of renovation to go, but the change is already amazing.

Here's the before picture showing the tub. Note the duct tape holding some of the tiles together, the green tub with pink and black tile, the brown and pink and gold wallpaper. Blech. (When the electrician pulled the old medicine cabinet out, we discovered black wallpaper, two layers underneath the current one. Who uses black wallpaper?!? Especially in a bathroom!)

Here's the interim stage with some of the white subway tile up:

And, here's the final product. The strip of mosaic tile matches the floor tile.

And, here's our beautiful floor.

This weekend, we have to find a paint color for the top half of the walls. The bottom half is going to have white beadboard. I'll post more pictures as the work finishes up.

Happy weekend, everyone!

Great job! What a great improvement!! Did you replace the window as well.. looks new.

Hi, Bob! I wish I could take credit for all the work, but it was our amazing tile guy (who is a perfectionist) and our plumbers. The window is the same - but the tile guy decided to tile the sill and around the frame instead of having wood there, which looks great and makes a lot more sense in the shower/tub!

VERY nice! It looks like it'll be worth all the 'creative public restroom' usage! :) Wow, can't even imagine that...!

I'm so happy for you all that you have your lovely bathroom to enjoy! It's so nice to have things just the way you want them! I found I'm keeping my bathrooms really clean...after every sink and shower (not to mention toilet) use. Love your color selection and that beautiful floor! So glad. God bless.
