Potty Break

Alas, here is a photo of our darn-near-completed bathroom project! Just last week, Michael and Tim came over to install our final Swanstone shower panel, so we get to shower with actual walls instead of sheets of plastic, yay!

You can see our swank hexagonal tile (we plotted out our pattern on paper and debated endlessly about how many black tiles we should have), and our subway tile with turquoise glass accent tile. The medicine cabinet is a '40s original, which we scored at City Salvage. There's some aging around the edges that looks wicked cool. The light above the mirror was an $11 bargain at Home Depot, and looks super retro.

The only things that remain are small details: toilet paper holder, towel bars, etc. But, the major things are done - I even took off the bathroom door and painted it.

Next project? Maybe painting my office. Pink!

Hey--that looks BEAUTIFUL. Bathrooms rock. Nice touches with the medicine cabinet and the light. I need to check out City Salvage!

Hey, was looking for info on bathroom tearouts and your site came up. It looks great! We're also blogging our home improvement adventures...we'll be tearing out our bathroom walls this weekend. Best of luck!
