Well, obviously, I still need some window treatments and a few more accessories, BUT all the major things are complete!  Yeeeee!!!

I have already taken six baths in my claw foot tub from Waterworks.  I’m obsessed with my sink which is custom.  Marble top is the Renaissance Console from Stone Forest with Palmer sink legs.  I used Carrara marble tiles (12×12 cut down to 12×3) on the floor in a herringbone pattern.  The tile company I used was Akdo Carrara Bella (honed).  And basic 3×6 white subway tiles on all walls.  All water fixtures are Rohl Perrin & Rowe. I really like the exposed piping & valves.  The custom shelving was done by a local carpenter.  I think that’s about it!  If you are curious about anything else just leave me a comment. :)

And just for giggles, here are the before pics:

To be honest, the guest bathroom wasn’t horrifyingly bad to begin with.  I mean, the bathtub & tile were original (gross)… and there was no shower… but besides those small details, most fixtures such as the sink & toilet had been updated at some point before we moved in.  We just gave it a little boost in appearance and made it completely functional!  I’m very happy with the way it turned out!

Master bath demo starts in two weeks!

P.S. a BIG “THANK YOU” goes out to one of my dear friends, Lea, who helped me pick out pretty much everything in both of my bathrooms.  If anyone is looking to update their bathrooms I highly recommend going to her- she is the best!


the bathrooms are getting a facelift :: guest bath update

For those who have been wondering, the guest bathroom is still a work in progress…  We ran into a couple of problems (nothing major… except for a minor leak while updating the plumbing which eventually had water coming down through the ceiling into the living room) but no worries!  When you have an older home you realize real quick that you need to have a great plaster/ ceiling guy on speed dial.

The bathtub is in.  I was a little worried about it and you can read about why here, but as you can see in the picture below, the guys got the tub up the stairs peacefully, installed it, and leveled it. SO HAPPY!  The tile work is done and the wainscoting is going up today and tomorrow.  I think we are on our final stretch to the finish line!  I still need to pick out some light fixtures, but other than that it’s good to go!

Next post will be the reveal of the guest bathroom!  Then moving on to the master!IMG_4460
