I am now a fancy house blog, for a post or two

This is the bathroom that had the "OUT OF ORDER" sign on it. Have I mentioned it before? It is a little scary. We have a pretty bathroom. This one is NOT pretty. I won't go into the details of why this bathroom looks the way it does. But the time has come to make a change. So it looked like this.

Pretty light. Is that an antique? Me thinks, NO! It is out of here.

How do we feel about mildew? Really? You think it is not an attractive look? What kind of house snob are you?

How about fake tile and wall heaters. Taped up outlets? G.R.O.S.S. So let's tear this puppy out! Sledgehammer, Please!

Oh look, the vanity and toilet are sitting in the hallway.Those drawers are still holding the useful things that the kids use in the morning. Easy access in the hall. We hope no one decides to, umm, use the toilet there in the hallway! Oh, and if you want to use the old bathtub...It is sitting on the FRONT PORCH!

You gotta love life in the country!

I bet the sledge hammer part was fun. My folks remodeled our home when I was 14-ish. Not the favorite of memories. I remember the dust mostly. I got so sick of the dust. Good for you for gettin' er-done!

we had a bathroom that was pretty similar to yours...actually we had 2 like that!! It felt wonderful to redo both of them..of course we did them one at a time!!

I think if I put the toilet in the hallway like you did, my son would use it!! I just know he would!!

Hey, your house looks like the permanent state of mine...we have been doing undone projects since we moved in 4 years ago...and we don't even live in the country:)

I bet your bathroom will be very nice!

what? you mean mildew is suppose to be removed? I thought it gave it the "one with nature" kinda feel. LOL! I love your house!
