Q: This is the bathroom we got with the old waterfront house we just bought. We have 2 months before moving in, and this is priority numero uno for us! We are planning to change all the faucets, the ceramic floor, replace the vanity by a wall mounted sink, with a small cabinet under it. Then add a corner shower on the right side.

We like modern, but since this is a nice cast-iron lion paw bath, so I'm thinking "modern cottage-chic"??

The question is: should I paint in white, or just completely remove the cedar walls?? It looks very dark in there, even the ceiling is made of wood planks! I will have to put some ceramic on the walls for the shower, will it look busy with the wood paneling?

i promise to send before & after pics, as this will be a HUGE change!!
