Almost There

Uncategorized January 22, 2009

Who could forget our hideous powder room when we first moved in? To say it was horrific was an understatement:

While we are not complete (anyone have any suggestions for a light fixture, mirror and hardware?) we have come a long way from the scary room it was before. And besides some good old fashioned hardwork it was extremely affordable to do!

Tile, mortar, and grout: $220
Tile saw rental: $22
Pedestal sink: $133
Various plumbing tools and parts: $79
New heat vent: $3.30
Baseboards: $8

Total Cost: $465.30
Plus an estimated $350 for a faucet and new towel and toilet paper racks
and $80 for a new light fixture

    Awesome job. In the before picture, I seriously thought there was a shower curtain there. I looked at the after picture and thought you took out the shower, until I realized that, no- it was WALLPAPER, not a shower curtain! Huge improvement!! :)

    that ‘before’ picture is really something! I actually gasped at my computer. The wall looked like it’s coming towards you. It reminds me of those “Magic Eye” posters. looking MUCH better now.
