Bathroom Remodel

We bought our house knowing it was pretty 1980's ghetto. There was great floral wallpaper on the walls, geometric linoleum, shiny brass light fixtures, etc. We have slowly transformed this house one project at a time. "Why has it taken so long?" some may ask.
Well, the answer is simply...
We are doing EVERYTHING ourselves!
Yes, we have been in our home almost 4 years and we are just now getting around to doing the bathroom. If you ask Clarke, the real reason we are re-doing the bathroom now, he'd say "I can't justify getting a 50 inch flat-screen, HDTV until the bathroom is done."
So, here we go...


(Please note...this is NOT my decor...this picture was taken before we bought the house. It was the old lady, ghetto, 1980's decor. It even had one of those spongy toilet seats that when you sat down you slowly decended until you hit the actual toilet seat. Pretty disgusting!)
The start of our project

As I am typing this Clarke is in the attic installing a new bathroom fan, recessed lighting and vanity lighting.
There is no turning back now!

P.S. Thank you over-time and CPAT center for your generous contribution to our bathroom remodel!

Impressive...I don't know what we're going to do when we can't call 'Maintenance' to fix our problems!
