Once upon a time, we had a horribly outdated and badly damaged bathroom that I hated. Some of the damage was done by the previous owners and some by us. When Lydia and Jessica were toddlers, I thought they were giggling and playing in their room. I was frantically trying to get some things done while they were occupied. What I didn’t know was that they were in the bathroom, with cups, dumping toilet water on each others heads! They were soaked and so was the entire bathroom. This incident along with a hot water heater leak and a plumbing leak, did the bathroom in.
One day, I could no longer take it and I began to gut the thing. That was several months ago. Last week we had a remodeler come and replace sheet rock and the floor. They laid ceramic tile on the floor and tiled around the tub. I am sooooo excited to have this bathroom back. It can’t get done soon enough. I want to take my bathroom back from the kids! One toilet is not enough for 5 people! The new toilet is being installed on Monday! I took before pictures and I can’t wait to take pictures of the finished product. The above picture is a sneak peak! It is the wallpaper border I ordered today!!! I love the paint color, too!!!! It will be green with a bronze metallic top coat!
It was soooo fun shopping! Karen went with me. I think she was as excited as I was. She’s that kind of friend.
I found a couple of great decorations at a garage sale last week. I’m delighted about a mirror and shower curtain that I saw at Lowes. Gotta have them! Karen bought me some awesome shower curtain hooks! They look like those old fashion glass knobs. I wanted this bathroom to be girlie for my little ladies but also something they wouldn’t outgrow. It’s been a while since I have decorated, which you can probably tell from my excitement!!
