Welcome to Angie, topping off bathroom month. There's nothing more dramatic than a total bathroom rehab. As Angie explains, We bought this fixer-upper house in the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle last year, and lived with the bathroom in its junky and extraordinarily PINK incarnation for a year. We've spent the last couple of weeks rehabbing the bathroom, including replacing the tub and installing a pedestal in place of the vanity. "Features" that the before pictures may not convey: peeling, half-a*sed refinish job on the tub; funky repairs to the tub surround; and (my personal favorite) flakes of gold glitter running through the "cultured marble" sink. The only thing we kept was the mirrored front to the medicine cabinet. [before pic after the jump]
Pitched the cabinet itself, saved the wood-framed mirror to hang on the wall as our mirror. I like how the medium-brown wood works with the browns in the shower curtain (props to my 6 year old daughter Rosa, who's obsessed with mermaids and by extension all sea creatures, for the suggestion for the curtain.) I love the soothing, muted colors in there now. Too bad it's not quite done! We need to put in baseboards, towel bars, and some cabinets above the toilet tank. In the fullness of time... You've come such a long way already! Thanks Angie...and Rosa.
