Bathroom is almost DONE...yippee

BEFORE


Well it's been 3 1/2 loooong months of renovations to our main bathroom. The only other bathroom in the house is in the basement...long way to the toilet at 2am. Tomorrow the plumbing is to be completed. Here are some before and after pictures. The before pictures show a very out of date room. You can see in the after pictures there is NO faucets or toilet yet...but SOON. This is the first time I've been through renovations, I'm so looking forward to getting my house back and not having people coming in anytime. It's been a struggle for me to get any sewing done with all the dust, hammering, drilling and people coming in and out. My sewing room is right next to the bathroom and I wasn't comfortable sewing while they've been working. As you can see from the before and after picture it's quiet a BIG change. The whole room had been gutted including the walls, floor and the window was replace with a new one. I'm so happy with how it's turned out, I can hardly wait to start using it FINALLY.

AFTER

What a huge transformation. I wanted it to be "spa like". I think the room will be very relaxing to have long baths.




























I found is really cute book of stitchery and just HAD to have it. I'm very excited about trying some of the little designs. And boy was it ever a good price on Amazon, I think the regular price was $24. and I snagged it for $12.

Oh, I do hope we can renovate our bathroom sometime soon. We freshened it with new paint last summer, it helped a little. But honestly it just needs a whole redo. I can only imagine how excited you must be to have it done.

Whoa - you're scaring me! I have a dual bathroom remodel coming up, but I sure don't want it to take 3 1/2 months! Having said that, yours is beautiful - it does look like a spa!

Your bath looks great. Why did they put the tub under that slanted ceiling like that? I always wondered as I banged my head into it every time!

Can I ask for your opinion on the "Sublime Stitchery" book please? I am about to get back into doing some stitchery .... it's been a really long time since I did any and I'm looking to get a book with lots of "how to" stuff, not just basic stitches but perhaps some advanced stuff as well. I'd appreciate your honest comments on the book now that you have it. Thanks in advance - my e-mail is on my Blog Profile.
