I am so glad to finally be able to write this post!! The bathroom project has taken much longer to finish than I expected. .but it is really finished. .and I can't even begin to voice my excitement! After I finally got rested up from rock hunting, camp nursing, work duties, ball games, 4-H service work, worship music practice, beet harvest and subsequent beet pickling at midnight. .I was FINALLY able to clean out my bedroom after 6 weeks of dust and clutter and completely move into the bathroom. Now, I will be the FIRST to report that I can't STAND to clean. .H-A-T-E IT! But, I also don't function well in grime and clutter. .so my nerves have been virtually shot since the remodel started. BUT, it turned out wonderful. .and I can't wait to give you all the tour!!
Now, if you can't remember what my bathroom looked like before, click here to see it before you continue. .that step is important. .cause a world of difference has been made here! The doorway to the hall got a taller opening, and a little wider too. .so I haven't hit the corner of the door frame ONCE as I move through the house at the speed of light! (This would be funny for any of you that knew I once had a maintanence man that PADDED the door jamb to my office because I kept injuring my hand as I cut it a T-A-D too short. .no different in my own home. .just no one there that felt sorry enough for me to pad the door!) The old tin tiles came from the stairway going up to the boy's bedroom. Jeremy framed them in for me a LONG time ago. .and I am excited that they can be fully appreciated now!
This photo was taken from Cami's room looking back into the newly widened hallway. .with the new closet door that you can no longer see through. The previous door had panels kicked out of it by "accident" from fighting male children.
Da-da-DA!! Here it is. .looking in from the door!!
And looking back at the door from the shower.
I think the space looks a lot more open now and less long and skinny. .the look I was hoping for!
Kelsey was a phenomenal help in that. .once we were able to get a raw space, our plans changed slightly to better accomodate things. .and I think we totally got the best use of the space!
This is an air bath. .which has given great pleasure to the younger kids. .and I have enjoyed it too! The tile on the wall was my idea. .and again. .one of those things that ONLY I could picture in my mind before it got done. I had mosaic tile formations laid out all down the aisle at Lowe's before I had my mind made up! The tiles have a metal inserted diamond, and are sealed to prevent rusting.
And look inside this luscious baby!! The storage possibilities are ENDLESS. .and yes. .I TOLD you I was an organizational freak!! I put all those little drawers in there. .and then labeled them so we could find everything easily. The bottom cabinets are perfect for my hamper and my workout clothes (you know, so I don't have to put them away everyday. .L-A-Z-Y!)
Here is my other favorite thing about the bathroom. .the lights!! We picked through the bubbly glass shades for ever looking for the same pattern of bubbles. .they are so minimalistic. .PERFECT!
And you may remember the project we started months ago using the kitchen cabinet belonging to my great-grandmother's home. .
