Revealing


Back when Let's Make A Deal with Monty Hall was on, my favorite part was what's behind door number 1, 2 or 3.  I would always pick the door I thought the big prize was behind.


Well, I have my very own door to reveal today!  And it is with great excitement that I reveal!


First let me say that when I moved to this house that is now my home, it had been built for a man and his boys.  The words masculine and minimalist come to mind.   You know some girly stuff had to happen!  


Since there's only one door to pick from let's open it to the old bathroom.  



Hollywood lights.  

Original vanity

Old fiberglass shower

Major drain moving

Pushed the wall back and made a half wall and framed for tile


Beautiful new vanity

Love the countertop 

The new and improved tile shower

Hollywood lights gone...new lights 


The new bench in the shower and the new toilet!  Tall for us old folks!

Look closely to see that we even have new fancy dancy soap dispensers.  

We are loving the new bathroom and have vowed to keep it neat and organized.  We've yet to see how long that lasts.


You know how it goes when you remodel one thing though......now the bathroom we've been using while the renovation was going on looks so outdated.  Another project for another year  day.


It was fun watching it all come together.  For a few weeks I wasn't sure my choices were just right....but now that it's all done, we both really like it a lot!


And there you have it folks.  The big reveal behind door number 1.   Turns out it was the grand prize!

Am I really unstylish if I still LIKE my "dressing room lights" in my bathroom?

All you've done in your new bathroom looks great!

WOW!!
It is beautiful. Such a transformation seems like it would require a Magician. What a good job and how pretty it all turned out. Your choices look "professional". Such a good job!!!

Nancy!!
how beautiful!!
your choices were perfect!!
and the tall toilet..
There's one in my bathroom..
sure makes things easier for those of us who have bad knees and hips!
funny thing about pretty stuff or rooms, they all tend to stay neater because messy just detracts from the new and prettiness!
hugs and smiles..

Wow - beautiful!!! I love the wall color in there, too. I love your fixture choices!

I would love to redo our bathroom, too, but I cannot justify any major remodeling in a house that is 3 years old.
