It is Blue Eyes’ birthday today. Yep, he made it another year. Astonishing. 😉
And in even bigger news, we have a new master bathroom. Yippee!!!
October 1996 (before move in and first remodel):
Before, photo taken February 2010 (after having lived with the “new” bath for almost 14 years):
A few of the reasons we wanted a new bath… inexpensive cabinetry (on the left, not the Stickley straight ahead) with drawer & door hardware no longer working well, chipped tiles, old grout, dated decorative tile, bad lighting, too large tub, too small shower, scuffed Marmoleum flooring, poor space planning/layout, toilet in need of replacing.
New bath remodel is complete, October 23, 2015:
New bath includes everything we wanted: high end cabinetry with soft glide drawers and easy access to power, luxurious Calacatta marble counter top, big shower with double heads and a bench, beautiful free standing tub, practical tile on the floor and shower, a fancy Japanese style toilet seat with warm spray, heated seat that glows in the dark, remote control operation (Happy Birthday Blue Eyes), open floor plan (bathroom is not large), lots of really great lighting. The only thing we are still waiting for is the small tear drop chandelier for over the tub… only because I sent the first one back, it was too large.
Time to crack open the champagne, oh wait, we have to leave in an hour for my sister’s wedding… Sunday night will be all about the bathroom!
