Let the fun begin!

It is about that time...bathroom renovation time that is! Here are the before pictures of our little gem of a WC...

As you can see...it is pretty small.

There is a charming original tile mosaic floor, but it is chipped and stained and doesn't do much for the style of the room. We'll be replacing it with a gorgeous Carrara marble floor in a basketweave pattern with a black dot like this...

The shower is in desperate need of a retile and refixture job. We're going to reglaze the cast iron tub, and are tiling the shower surround in a white subway tile.

I'm so excited to have our shower head placed at the right level. Right now it hits me right in the middle of the chest and don't even get me started about the four handles we have going on. What is that about?

The toilet is mounted about 6 inches away from the wall which creates a very cramped space. We've purchased a smaller, round toilet that will give us much more room. It will also be remounted so it is a normal distance from the wall...no more wasted space! Now our knees won't hit the tub! :)

Finally, my favorite part...we'll be adding tile wainscoting half way up the wall and replacing our teeny tiny sink with this masterpiece!

Isn't it pretty? I think it is really going to create the biggest visual change to the room. I also had the idea of having our contractor add an outlet to the inside of the medicine cabinet. Now we can put our Sonicare toothbrushes away and not have them out for all to see. Yippee!!

Check back tomorrow for updates on the renovations!
