Demolition is now underway in our small (about 5’x5′) second bathroom! First some before pictures…
Yes, the light from that fixture is just about as flattering as you’re imagining it is! Picture, if you will, the entire room painted a pale, mental hospital corridor green. Nice, yes? That’s what it was like when we bought the house. Adam painted it white so I wouldn’t have to suffer excessively while getting ready in the mornings. (At the time, I thought it would be “a few months” before we got around to renovating this bathroom. HAH. Two and a half years later…)
I feel sort of bad for the toilet. It’s stamped 1958 inside, which means it’s been doing its job for 50 years! It’s cute, too, but it’s woefully inefficient and really does need to be replaced.
The sink (not cute) was hanging off the wall and dripping excessively, so we actually got rid of it a couple of weeks ago. You’ll have to survive without photos. Don’t you love all of the drill-holes in the tile?! I assume someone was test-drilling for studs—through tile. Nice!
The tub is staying. It’s deep and it’s cast iron, and I like the corner style. We’ll have it refinished, though, since it’s presently coated with a combination of water stains, rust rings, and latex paint. (And no, we’re not keeping that tile!!! Seriously, who picks out things like that? Nobody likes mauve-tinged gray-beige.)
I love this little window! It’s one of my favorite things in the house. It’s staying, of course.
Ugh. Disgusting, I know. There’s more here, if you must.
Demo photos to come…
