It's finally finished!
The upstairs bath addition to our home is now 100% complete!
We were able to spend time working on the last remaining "to do's" during the big snow storm.
and now...We can say that the upstairs is complete!
As you can see...we have used a rescued storm door as the new entrance to the bath...
We then put a new piece of tempered glass in it and etched it for privacy...and the whimsy factor.
This was once a very large closet...we never really used.
For a brief time, it also served as a tiny bedroom for my daughter April.
The entire room was clad in beaded board and then whitewashed.
We laid it in horizontally to accentuate the subway tile tub surround.
After a 150 plus years...this house now has two full baths!
Now that it's there...I don't know how we did without it!
This little metal row of hooks is one of my favorite finds...it was .50 at a junk shop!
I stripped it... leaving small traces of the white paint in the crevices... and then buffed it to make it seem old.
All of the metal finishes in the bath are either brushed nickel or galvanized.
I wanted something unique for the shower curtain rod...so off to the plumbing dept.
I used galvenized pipe and fittings and then for the rings...clips for a chain link fence!
I really wanted this to be a fun...
as well as functional space!
Most of the key pieces are rescued items that we reconfigured to suit our needs.
For me, the best part of this project is that we did all ourselves!
I laid the flooring...and every single tile myself!
It took alot longer...but the savings were Huge!
Now... we can make our way down the stairs...into the rest of the house.
I had wanted my beloved dog Otis Blue
to be the first to take a bath in my new tub...
he passed away right after our return from Texas.
This was the last photo taken of him...
on our trip to Texas!
He and April were enjoying the gorgeous weather
we had while we were there
I will be posting some pictures of all the rooms upstairs over the next few days or so...
so please... stop back by!
Have a blessed week...donna
