You want to know something funny? The whole reason I began this blog was because of my bathroom - a bathroom I have yet to reveal. I'm a terrible blogger. Even though I've technically been blogging since last February, the truth is I've only actually been blogging about 4 or 5 months. I was really, really busy finishing up school. But back to the bathroom. There wasn't much I hated about our house. I disliked plenty but only hated two things. First and foremost, I hated our master bathroom. The gentleman we bought the house from remodeled it in an attempt to sell the house. Supposedly, he invested around $10,000 redoing it. How did it look? Check it out...
Those who know me know I love black. It's my favorite color. I even have a black diamond as a wedding ring. But this... this was too much. The black tub, while huge, was a beast to clean. We have really, really hard water in our town so there was always hard water build up. I absolutely hated dealing with it. The sinks were black too so we had the same problem. And the shower.... What was up with the 1/2 wall? We ended up having to stick our shampoo bottles up there because we had nowhere else to put them. There was absolutely no shelving in the shower.
I dealt with it for three years. Every time sat in the tub I looked at the ugliness around me. Ok, I'm being harsh. It's not like it was an old 50's lime green bathroom. No, it was a modern kind of ugly. The kind of ugly a man spent $10,000 to create. Poor guy.
Then something wonderful happened... I was given the go ahead to redo our bathroom. I knew instantly what I wanted to do - after all, I had been dreaming of this day for three years. So, without further ado, I give you my new bathroom:
And for those of you who like side-by-sides:
So there you have it. Welcome to my new bathroom!
It's actually not completely finished. I need to paint the trim and add trim around a couple of doors. I also want to add crown at the top, but it is close enough to finished to show all of you.
I really love the new space and couldn't be happier. For the same amount the previous owner spent, I was able to create my dream bath.
Vanities: These were dressers from Z Gallerie that we converted to vanities ($700/each) (they don't sell them any longer)
Sink: Decolav (purchased from a local vendor on clearance for $72/each) - Build.com has the sinks for $163.
Lights: Lighting Inc (I bought the last 5 they had in stock so I got them for $100/each!!)
Glass door: Alamo Glass ($1200)
I think that's everything. If there are questions about anything else, let me know!
