*** This post is picture heavy. ***
So let's recap. I live in a 1960ish home with one bathroom. Having one bathroom can be a challenge when guests are involved. I used to have a footed tub (that I loved...before I had it). I had to let it go because it was too difficult to keep the water inside the tub. I was getting concerned that I would get water damage on the floor. Also, the paint had begun peeling up and the original surface was beginning to rust. All of that spells, "Nobody wants to shower or bathe in this." Long story short, after days of removing that dated tile, the chicken wire and cement behind it, and almost starting over, I finally have a bathroom that I feel great about.
Normally I tackle my home improvement projects myself, but this was not one of them. I was referred to a wonderful licensed plumber, electrician, jack-of-all-trades sort of man. It took longer because he did all the work himself with the occasional help of an assistant, but because of that, the price was significantly lower than all my other bids.
Thankfully, I have a mother who lives around the corner, with two and a half full-functioning bathrooms. :-) Where were those bathrooms when I lived there? lol
Although I didn't do this project, I did paint, tile the mirror, and decorate on a budget. That should count for something, right?
Ok, pictures now.
