Completed!

We're DONE!

Hip hip hooray! We couldn't be happier about the way our bathroom turned out. We have had most of it done for while now, but were waiting on a few things before we posted any pictures. It feels nice to have it all done. Our bathroom has definitely become a haven for us. I want to thank everyone who helped us make it happen. I wont mention names but you all know who you are. Thanks again, and we love our new bathroom.


BEFORE...
Some of the features before

PLENTY of floor room and sitting space

The sink was my favorite part of the bathroom, nothing better then having the option to wash your hands in HOT HOT water of COLD COLD water. Warm water just didn't happen, and lets not even the mention the fact that we couldn't turn them off all the way, EVER.

Ahhh there is NOTHING more refreshing than a medicine cabinet that makes your toothbrush reek of mildew! NOTHINGLets not forget the CRAZY amount of storage space we had. I mean really, who wouldn't love having this much space?!
Now I don't want you to forget how awesome our tile was in our bathroom, or the fact that the towel rack was in the shower, I know it TOTAL genius.
As you can see our bathroom was at its prime I must say and we were VERY sad to see it go.

AFTER...


The new and very much improved sink and counter top....

Double rod towel rack which we put OUTSIDE the shower, you tend to take this simple thing for granted when you go without one for 9 months.

Some bamboo for good luck. I made this plant from stuff I got at IKEA. (Next to it is a cotton swab holder.)

Our CURVED shower rod, if you have tried a shower with one of these you know how much more spacious it makes your shower feel. It gives you much more arm room, and you don't rub your elbows on the curtain. The curtain is also from IKEA. Kory's sister Kelli has one like it to, and she gave me permission to get the same one. Thanks Kelli :)

I really love our bath faucet! Its bamboo (sorry for the water spots, I should have cleaned it before I took pics)

Kory built these awesome shelves for me (I stained them, something that has now become my favorite thing to do) They will eventually have more towels on them, but I need to do laundry first. :)

Wow. Everything looks fabulous! I remember the old bathroom, and as you portrayed, it's difficult to see why all these changes were necessary. However,I would never have believed that would be the final result. You guys and all who helped you, went above and beyond. I'd certainly spend all my time in there. Also, those bamboo things you made and the bamboo bath faucet, are really cute. You guys did good.

Great job guys!! I cannot believe the difference. What were the people thinking that engineered your old sink? Separate hot and cold faucets? It's kind of funny that at one time some company actually spent time and money to create that riddiculous sink desing. Once again...great job!!! I will get those photos to you guys soon!

Wow! Holy cow! I didn't think it was that bad before. But it's gorgeous now. I love the bath faucet.

I think you should get some kind of award for having the most toilet pictures on your blog.

Jill said...

Wow. I would totally do "business" in there, now. Looks great!

Also, I second your decision to go with a rounded shower bar - they're the BEST. Great job you two!

Isn't it amazing what a little tlc and elbow grease can do?? I was bummed that I had to miss the shower on Saturday. We've been sick this weekend. I was totally looking forward to it. Hopefully we can get together soon! Now that we live here-yay!
