Bathroom preview

Due to popular demand I decided I better get over my lack of ambition to photograph our finished bathroom. The project left us without a shower for an entire week, but let me tell you it was well worth it. I wish I had taken before pictures, but I was so disgusted with the old bathroom I didn't want it to remind me how neglected it had become. Now... these pictures are not the best. You will have to come for a scheduled tour to see the big picture and paint which is yet to be chosen.

The tile is my favorite part. They are 3x6 ceramic tiles sometimes called subway tiles laid in a brick pattern. I was inspired by a house I grew up in with a similar tile pattern. The room is small, and we tried to keep the budget down but the whirlpool tub was a splurge for us. After using it I am certain it was a good idea! We are also waiting on a custom order vanity top/sink. The all white one in the picture came with the vanity. We ordered one that is just cultured marble- however it is in a grey granite pattern. We are just waiting for it to come in. Also waiting on a replacement window for the room.

Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek!!
