I love this even more!! I chose these iridescent mosaic tiles because they reminded me of sea glass, which is one of my favorite things in the world. Then I picked the paint color to compliment the glass. You see, I did get some of the trim painted. Good girl!
Okay, this is my giant-sized space: the tub. I thought I'd be lounging in it every night, treating myself to beauty baths and luxuriating in bubbles. Turns out it takes so long to fill the darn thing that I rarely use it, isn't that awful? But, when I do decide it's worth it to drain the entire house of every drop of hot water, and I have an extra 30 minutes to wait while it fills up, well it's quite lovely to sit in there and poach a little. It took 4 burly guys to carry her in the house - very heavy cast iron. So, when the hot water goes in it stays hot for awhile. And the view is pretty spectacular from here, too.
Do you know what keeps peace in a marriage? His and her sinks and bathroom cabinets!! I'm not kidding about that. (P.S. My cabinet is bigger than his, naturally!)
That's it. Too bad all my "before" pictures of this space were accidentally thrown away. How did that happen, anyway? Suffice it to say the place was in dire need of modernizing and cleaning. The shower was 2.5 x 2.5 square. The sinks were in the bedroom behind a weird kind of half wall, and the "walk-in closet" could barely be walked into. Oh, it wasn't pretty......but now I think it is!
See you next time!
