The Bathroom is DONE!!!

This Friday we frantically finished the bathroom in anticipation of the arrival of our guests. It was like an episode of a home makeover show, but we weren't the home owners getting the makeover. We were the designers, contractors, building inspector, and clean-up crew...rushing around finishing trim, connecting plumbing (ok, that was my husband's job!) and I cleaned up and inspected!
It has been a long 7 weeks and we are so glad to be done and so grateful to be able to enjoy a lovely bathroom...new, clean, and so pretty!

Here are a few photos....don't you just love that faucet? It's reminiscent of a pump handle, and the sink is a vessel bowl, which looks like a washbasin. My husband made the cabinet and we painted it a buttery cream color. The bead board wraps around the room and there is bead board made of vinyl in the shower as well. New floor, toilet, tub, sink/cabinet, and walls. I'm so happy with it, I haven't decided where to place things for decorating...I might just admire the newness of it for awhile!

Our online charter school starts today. So it's back to home school for us, the summer is over... (the vacation part, not the heat!). But at least the "school" has a new bathroom!
