Aaaahhhhhhhhh!

The past few days I have been putting together our bathroom that has been an eyesore for coming on 5 years!!! YIKES! It all started with me pulling up the carpet after the toilet overflowed! (Who puts carpet in bathrooms anyway???) We pulled the toilet and it didn't get put back in for about 2 years (don't ask). Then we finally put in a tile floor - put the toilet back in and I had Bert paint the walls blue (again, don't ask).

Well - the toilet kept overflowing, so we got a new toilet not too long ago and I finally got the motivation to make this bathroom work ... and be lovely. As for the working part - we still need to fix something with the shower/tub plumbing, but now, EVERYTHING else is ready to go. So, now that I have this pretty, new-ish bathroom, you can bet I'll be encouraging Bert to get the plumbing fixed so that I can sneak in there for some calm, alone (with bubbles) time!

So, here is a peek of my new/improved/I-can-actually-set-foot-in-it bathroom:


And now, some telling before and after shots:






WHEW!

It's done ... Bert has been gone for a few days and I wanted to get it done as a surpise!

All that is left to do is go to Lowe's, buy new door hinges (I just can't bring myself to put the old ones back on), attach the hinges and hang the door!

And I am going to let Bert help with that.

I went to Greece a couple of years ago, and when I got back, I had the STRONGEST urge to paint something blue. I have a turquoise blue powder room, that matches the tile "W.C." sign that hangs over the door. What's wrong with blue? Your new bathroom is gorgeous, though. Bathrooms are a PAIN. Glad you got it figured out.

Your bathroom looks great! Don't you love surprising your husband with projects while he's away?! I always do. I wasn't quite so enthusiastic this go around, but he noticed! (I cleaned out the bathroom fan...it was dusty!) I didn't expect him to notice, but he noticed right away! Love it!
