Despite his reservations about our family's presence in cyberspace, this post has my husband's full support. Whenever we do a house project, he asks if I am going to put it on the blog, if I have taken pictures for the blog, etc. Which is ironic because I am usually so caught up in the DIY that the documenting is the last thing on my mind. Having said that, here is what I captured of the basement bathroom redo from this summer.
This is best I could find for a before picture.
That piece of ceiling above the toilet is where I noticed the ceiling sagging and upon investigating, my entire hand went through the ceiling. I joked in my distress that the sh*t had literally hit the (bathroom) fan!
I like the floor but we were in way over our head. I think if we had it to do again I would stain/paint the concrete floor that was under the linoleum. It was in great shape and would have been quite functional for the heavy traffic in here.
But as we lived with it, it was apparent that we are not in the bright and white stage of life. I found a nice gray, Silver Screen by Glidden, that still kept it light. The real kicker was the shower curtain I found at World Market. It brought the whole vision I had together.
It is hard to photograph this small space but here are my best attempts.
