January Projects, Part 2

The Farmhouse Master Bath
The duct tape over the crack in the bottom of the tub just wasn't working any longer.
So out came the power tools and it was soon in a heap behind the chicken coop.
I will not miss it
Or its lovely broken companion.
And if we are doing away with those, the related blue sink and it's vanity might as well be ripped out.

I will not miss it either. I am sure you can understand why.
And since the layers deep wallpapers of past lives did not come down quite so easily, it seemed just as well to tear down the wallboard.
And while we are at it, might as well reconfigure the doorways.
And Update the plumbing since it is all exposed.
Which all of course requires that the floor tile be replaced. 
It will all be worth it I am certain.
Despite my dining room doubling as a bathtub instillation staging area.

the new one is so nice and deep, with elbow rests!

And demolition dust ev.er.y.where.

With company coming this weekend.

Good thing there's always reason to laugh.
  Like when my husband said that he was going out to the man-shed to get his wall adjustment tool, and came back with the biggest sledge hammer I have ever seen.
Yes, It will be worth it.
This I will keep repeating to myself.

I always wanted a tub in my dining I know weird eh:) It is going to be lovely when it is all done. Dust and renovating seem to go hand in hand. B

I am sure the company will enjoy their bath in the living room this weekend!

Busy days ahead I am sure but the results will be the reward. Happy rennovating and decorating! Enjoy the next few days/weeks . . .

A tub with elbow rests, now I would love that :)

Sue said...

I think he made the right decision, nothing like a lovely white bathroom suite, and that blue was certainy past its sell by date!

It looked like the room was ripe for an overhaul despite all the dust and mess. Look forward to seeing the end result

I well remember remodeling days! Dust, yuck, and more yuck!! But, It's worth it! I know you'll enjoy that new tub!

Debbie said...

You weren't kidding.

This will definitely be worth keeping a tub in your dining room. ;-)
