Now I guess it's time to catch up on that 6-year-old bathroom renovation. I love the bathroom now and the only thing I wish I had done differently would have been to tile around the original tub with subway tile, rather than using a surround. But that could still happen - just don't tell Mike. Here are some pics from when we first started the tear-out.
I know I have more pictures somewhere, but 6 years is a long time to remember where you stashed some electronic files. And on to the reveal. Here it is!
Apparently, I have some kind of turn-of-the-century or '20s vibe going because I love white hex and subway tile, pedestal sinks, and beadboard. And no, the beadboard isn't going the wrong way. I would like to replace the lights over the mirror with one on each side of it, but it can wait. We also ripped out the ceiltex tile (gross) and used 100+-year-old tongue and groove floorboards on the ceiling. We sanded them down (that was before we bought a planer!) and painted them. It was a labor of love to put them up - just ask Mike. I added a light/exhaust fan also. I'm not a fan of the look of traditional exhaust fans.
There wasn't an exhaust fan in this bathroom, which I'm guessing was because it has a window. It did, however, have a heat lamp. Yes, in south Georgia. This is the bathroom I use, and I didn't see a need for such a thing. Mike's bathroom still has one, and he still uses it.
I promise you I don't have a thing for whales. It just happened like this! I like the fact that I can change up the feel of this bathroom with just a new shower curtain and some new pictures. So that's it. It's been 6 years and I still love it. But the kitchen, the floors, now there's another story. Stay tuned!
