"THE RENAISSANCE WOMAN'S BATH"
Today I am sharing a bathroom makeover done by my daughter, Kim. In my opinion she is a true "Renaissance Woman". Kim lives in a small town in Illinois and has raised two of the finest young men you will ever meet. This girl can do anything, flip houses, sew, create, write, teach and make something out of nothing .
This is her bathroom makeover
Her old house is about a hundred years old and sits on farmland outside town. This bathroom had been "updated" to a formica covered vanity, with large gold knobs, flowered paneling, vinyl floor covering and a decrepit toilet. It was gutted to studs, floor and ceiling joists .
|This awesome tub was the only thing that stayed|
Kim did all the tile work on the walls and floor herself.
|This view of the shower curtain is close to the true color of the walls|
|This is where the formica covered vanity sat|
Her handyman is a native of this small town. He shakes his head in wonder at some of the things she brings in and asks him to install.
The handyman couldn't understand why anyone would want something that looked like this. I guess it wasn't up to Ace Hardware standards which is all they have in town.
The towels let you know that this her personal bathroom. It is right outside her bedroom.
Kim does most of her shopping on the internet.
I am not sure of the sources for most things.
Chandelier: Old house she was flipping
Heated towel bar: Internet
Shower curtains(2): Dillards
I hope you enjoyed seeing her hard work. It was really a mess previously. I wish I had before pics. She has another bathroom ripped down to the studs. Will probably be spring or summer before I can share that but I will.
I am not up to doing most projects these days. I have been perusing my photo file in order to join the fun.
