It's really going to happen .
We are going to take our Animal House bathroom from this.
To something with a whole lot more sass.
Something like this.
or maybe a celebration of color like this.
I've been thinking a green like this.
Because this bathroom is clear up on the third floor it is seldom used unless everybody is home at once.
We would really like to keep the costs here to a minimum.
Looking ahead our biggest expenses will be the flooring and the plumber.
To put the floor in the tub, radiator, and toilet will need to be removed.
The radiator and the tub ( without any shut off valves) will be the tricky part.
We will have to wait until it is a bit warmer to pull out the radiator.
The entire system needs to be drained first and it is still a bit early in the season to shut down the boiler.
That said, we thought we would forge ahead with some of the purchasing decisions.
So how do you feel about this?
We think this would be a good look for this 95 year old bathroom.
I would love to save this old sink that is most likely original to the house
but as you can see it is wearing the badges of age.
It has such a pretty shape but in the end it is a matter of $$$.
I am sure it will be considerably less to replace it with a new one.
We did take down the shower curtain bar.
There are other showers in the house.
We decided to go with something less practical and more visually appealing.
So we are ordering this little lovely.
Then there is the matter of lighting.
I want to stay with the vintage vibe and so the Big Box 90's light fixture needs to move on out too.
I saw this one today and thought it might work.
I've been down with a beast of a cold for over a week
but it amazing how the thought of a decorating project can improve my outlook.
So it is Sunday night and if you were here last week you might remember the issues I was having with my McLInky.
I unsubscribed and I am going to try inlinkz.
Hopefully, I will have better luck here.
Thank you for your patience.
You know the drill.
LInk up whatever.
Your favorite post, a decorating project, a favorite recipe, a gift you wrapped...
