This weekend we finally had time to do the finishing touches on the bathroom from hell.
It’s hard to believe we went from the bathroom from hell, to the pictures perfect little bathroom.
Lets look back to when the bathroom was discovered to having a rotted floor and ceiling that was coming down.
The lovely bathroom from before:
With the bathroom gutted except the tub, the sink and mirror, we had to start with the basics. First it was removing the rocking toilet, to discover the hole under it. The one that we still can’t believe that no one fell through.
Next came down the old framing and out went the old window. With new framing added and a new window in, we were able to put in the new wiring.
Then the dry wall was put up, followed by the panel board and then the floor.
Husband set to work on painting the room while I did my first DYI projects. I painted the bathtub and the old mirror. Creativity hit me, and next it was the door on the sink basin and then the door handles for the cabinets.
And finally we got to decorate added some of the cottage warming gifts we had received and the wall decorations we bought in Mexico in February.
The bathroom from hell is now a fond memory, and here is the new bathroom:
We have a bathroom, now worthy of being at a cottage.
