|Let's not discuss the toilet seat cover (yuck) and wicker storage shelves.|
I mentioned it was tiny - approx 4' x 4'. Clearly it wasn't a luxurious master bath that attracted me to the house, but I saw some potential in the vintage floor tile and classic black and white color scheme. Nevertheless - I completely ignored this room for the first 2 years we were here.
Last year, we decided to give this room a mini-makeover. Here's the "after":
New paint (medium bluish-gray); new window; new window treatments (tutorials to come); new medicine cabinet (purchased here); and new accessories. A new light fixture would have been nice - but, the fixture and electrician just weren't in the budget.
I have to say - I'm pretty happy with the bathroom as it is and would have kept like this for a while. So, why rip it all out just one year after the mini-makeover?
Here's the main answer:
That would be our living room ceiling - remember the pesky leak I referred to the other day?
The good news? In order to address the leak once and for all - we'll have to replace the plumbing under both upstairs bathrooms, which means we'll get 2 shiny new bathrooms and our master bathroom will finally have a shower and a vanity! And, let's not forget all the fun I have thinking about (err, obsessing over) the details.
